May I Take Your Order
Tonight, we're pleased to serve you a fun little romantic dish with a scoop of horror and a nice, bloody ganache!
May I Take Your Order is a short visual novel about a half hour long with five endings. You play as a waiter serving a couple with...strange tastes.
The game runs more smoothly when downloaded. There's also a "Content Warnings" document in the file marked "game." Fun gore is very personal to balance, so if you're worried and don't mind spoilers, it's all laid out there.
November 2022 Update! I've started working on a sequel of sorts, that will go back to this restaurant:
Hendrik and Talaiporia would be in it, and it would be considerably longer. If you're interested, Patrons can play an early build right now!

This was so fun!! Huge fan of all things eldritch horror so I fell in love with this at first sight. Hendrik and Talaiporia are insanely fun together, learning bits and pieces about their history and seeing them play off eachother was so entertaining, they're both really well characterised within a relatively short time frame. Really looking forward to the next one!! Best of luck with it
Excellent game. Played it a few months ago and it hit the spot just right, so I decided to translate it to spanish.
I worked on it on and off and finally finished! So here you go: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1NO1jA_J_N6G-z1ckuLuYQCNhsROt5Zg-?usp=sha... (I only tested it on Linux so idk if it works on Windows but if the scripts are the same it should. Also I didn't include the Mac version since it has a different file structure compared to the other two builds for some reason)
Thank you so much for this beautiful piece of art and comedy! I hope it reaches many more :D
PS: So, spanish has many variations and I tend to mix them up on purpose since I find it richer than using conventional neutral spanish. Rest assured though that any spanish speaker will understand it just fine regardless haha.
- Talaiporia speaks in softly archaic/european spanish.
- The "me" switches between formal/neutral to informal/argentine spanish.
- Hendrik tends to stick to formal/neutral but may let slip a few informalities probably also in argentine.
Oh my GOODNESS, this is so cool! I actually have next Tuesday scheduled to get a Spanish translation of The Jig Is Up posted to the site, as well, and the dude working on it was JUST TALKING this morning about his choices on where to use Argentine Spanish. Like, specifically for characterization reasons! Very seriously, whether you ever want to do another translation or not, if you'd like to chat with some other translators, it would be an absolute joy to have you in our discord: https://discord.gg/AEFwFw7Wed
I'm downloading the file right now, and I will add it to my schedule to work on on Tuesday! Thank you so much for the hard work that you put into this! Have you already added yourself to the credits? If not, let me know the name you'd like to be credited as, and I'll be more than happy to put it in!
Omg I loved this game so much! It's super unique, though part of me wishes there were more games like this as it was so amazing. A lot of people are asking how to get each ending so here are some clues (albeit pretty obvious ones):
1. Injure Hendrik- if u can't figure out how, try getting him stabbed with the steak knife (true ending)
2. Make Talaiporia upset
3. Try ur best to die
4. Try ur best to survive
5. Send Talaiporia to sleep with one of the desserts
Beautiful little game with nice art and a fun storyline! Very much enjoyed :)
got ending 4
TALAIPORIA MARRY ME PLEASE
I liked this immensely.
Art, story, pacing and immersiveness (I found the slight path variations plus multiple endings with a couple hard endings splendidly balanced).
I find it hard to find engaging games as of late and this one managed to hit the spot just right.
Thank you so much for making this!
I chuckled seeing "Rough sex"
Wow! Great game, and surprisingly sweet! I got ending 4 playing naturally, and ending 5 trying to do a bad job. I'm pleased with what I got ^^
did this dude get aroused from her breaking his finger???????
This was great! It made me fall in love with the characters, no matter how much of a masochist one of them was :>
What a cute and funny game! The completionist in me is out to get every ending now, but a first play through to ending five! Loved this very much <3
This game was great. It was really funny, and I really liked how Talaiporia was shown to care for Hendrik in her own really strange way.
i love it i love it i love it !!!!
in my unpopular opinion, talaiporia is gorgeous and i would take her on a date, no matter the damage to my bones lmao
the character style is so pretty, and the story is hilarious :)
This was so much fun and super great! The relationship between Hendrik and Talaiporia was both hilarious and sweet and finding out more about her and the other dimension was good world building and incentivised playing the game multiple times! The art was super nice and the music set the tone well! Such a well made story and novel, if there's ever a sequel or an extended story, would love to play that one day. Really great job on it!
oh my gosh this game is great
This was AMAZINGG!!
pov, your gender is the eldritch abomoation and you're yearning for the guy
Hello! My dearest Alexis, I come here to humbly request the permission to translate this magnificent visualistic novel to the amazing Brazilian Portuguese language.
I do not intend to make profit out of this or abuse the game's files (beyond what's necessary to translate it), it its merely a fan project, a personal hobby of mine.
Also I would totally understand if you're not confortable with a internet rando messing with your code, this is why I'm asking you for your permission.
Also also, if you go to my profile, you can see that I have already translated another game, and not to brag or anything, but it is pretty good (lol).
I would love it if you translated the game! Thank you for asking, it’s one of the biggest compliments I can ever get. Feel free to use the files in the game and to edit any textures or images you need to.
If you do finish the translation, then let me know when you’re done, and I would be honored to host the translation on this page alongside the English version. ^_^
I SURVIVED! Ending four!
I had so much fun with this! The art is really cool and the dialogue was so funny. The MC trying to talk to the other kitchen workers was particularly memorable.
Hendrik and Talaiporia are just... Incredible. Very silly and sweet with great characterization. I really enjoyed talking to them and seeing all the different conversation options. I also enjoyed the brief bits of conversation between just the two of them when coming back to the table - their banter is so fun. I think my favorite ending is actually the 'bad idea' ending - the shift in that one is just so dramatic and fun.
Overall this game feels so unique and thought out and was clearly made with lots of love and offbeat interests. I enjoyed the experience of a light-hearted romance with gore and horror elements a lot! And I love a woman(ish) with too many eyes.
I love the art of the game, the eldritch human form looked great, especially all of the facial expressions that you managed to create with all of the eyes. It was worth going through the game to see all of the endings, and was a little challenging with the game, it took a few false routes till I found all of them. Was definitely worth it, as some routes were completely different, and the art at the end was great.
This was actually, genuinely, hilarious. Funniest thing I've ever seen on Itch. Loved it so much I logged into an account I haven't used in three years just to leave this comment. Love your humour, and your other games too. Absolutely spectacular.
This was such a fun game, seriously, loved every minute of it and luckily it seems I picked all the right options first time, anyway each ending was great! Great atmosphere too, both before and after Talaiporia was "summoned"!
This was a very cute game! My broken brain wants Talaiporia to love me lmao and i couldn't figure out how to get to ending one, but I think it was very fun and creative! (at least, she was very creative)
I love the art style so much. Great game 10/10
This game was so cool! I'd been looking at using ren'py for a while now but this game was the push I needed to finally go download it. A small detail I thought was really cool was that the standard dialog box changes to the messier eldritch shape when Talaiporia is summoned!
Thank you so much for checking it out! And also; hearing that this got you to try out Ren'Py is a huge compliment! I think that visual novels are a lot of fun to make, and Ren'Py is still my favorite engine. Good luck and I hope you make something great!
it wont let my type my name, as i doing something wrong?
edit, nvm i just smashed buttons and it worked idk
HENDRIK PLEASE MARRY ME!! We stan a kinky eldrich void being on this house. Honestly, it has been ages since I had this much fun playing a random game before, 10 out of 10, amazing game, would and will play again!
Hahahaha thank you very much! Sadly, Hendrik considers himself taken, though Talaiporia would urge you to take him away from her.
Hopefully I’ll get him in another game sometime!
love it, super cut. couldnt figure out how to get ending 2 tho
This is a real gory yet cute game, I enjoy getting the endings a lot. It's both functioning and entertaining.
This was lovely!
10 out of 10! great game! it was pretty funny and cute with a nice side of Lovecrafty themes
Just finished playing and got ending four! Now I'm gonna go look for the other endings ^^
Just finished and got all 5(? can't remember exactly) endings! I'll admit I got kinda confused at some points, but this was definitely a lovely experience~!
I had a great time playing!
Cant seem to play the game :c
Sorry to hear that! Could you give me some details regarding your problem? Which version are you attempting to run? What’s your operating system? And what error messages might you be getting? Things like that can help me identify what’s going wrong. Thank you!
ending 5! glad to be here!
oops, forgot to post my LP of this fun title here Enjoy
Got the 5th ending, it was a very lovely game to play.
And the characters, so cute!
