Release Dates

While We Wait Here is an horror / simulation video game developed and published by Bad Vices Games.


While We Wait Here is a kitchen management game with dialogue choices and multiple endings.

Run a small diner located near a mountain range, take orders from your customers, cook them good food and serve them refreshments.

The equilibrium of an ordinary working day is shattered when news of an impending catastrophe is broadcasted.

Now looming over the characters is the catastrophic threat of the end of the world. At the diner, some of your customers seem to ignore it, blinded by their own problems they play the whole thing down or even refuse to believe it. Others welcome it as punishment for what they have done in their life. As you wait inside the diner, listen to their stories and offer them food for thought.

Will you convince your customers to run for shelter, or will they stay at the diner, waiting for the end?
