Welcome to HELL TENDER,
where the drinks are hot and the customers are hotter (literally, they're demons)


In short, it's a gameplay focused, visual novel game about running a bar in hell. In long...

A new satan has been elected! With that comes many changes to hell. You, a former bartender, now a lesser demon in hell, have been summoned by satan himself to explore a new business venture. A bar in hell.

With a host of deranged and unpredictable clients, it's up to you to mix drinks, handle conversations, and keep the bar running smoothly.

But it isn’t all about drinks...

Hell has problems to solve, poeple to save....

...and the doors to The Ninth Circle have swung wide, inviting all those who are willing to drink their problems away, at your service. There's no telling who will wander in seeking to drown their sorrows in booze.


Unique cocktail mixing system where you physically grab and pour drinks, add extras, shake, and serve.

Choiced-based branching storyline where your decisions depending on what you say and what you serve.

A host of 26 regular customers with intriguing backstories and world views. Everyone has an opinion on hell!

An aesthetic inspired by Helltaker, a story influenced by VA-11-HALL-A, and gameplay drawn from Papers Please.

A beautiful soundtrack... I hope!

Serious waifu potential ;)

Get close with your clients, their tastes, their dreams; and prepare for one hell of a good time!

Developer Message

Our team... is non existent! It's just me! A solo dev, making this game :P. I am currently studying Computer Science at Exeter University, and since it's my dream to become a successful indie game developer, I figured it was about time I released a game.

I started making games since I was a wee-little 14 year old. They are all crap, understandably. But nowadays, I seem to be able to make slightly less crap games ;P. In all seriousness, it's pretty surreal seeing myself today. If I told myself back then that I would be making a website for one of my games, I would have probably had a heart attack, because time travel is not a normal daily oocurence and my weak 14 year old heart probably couldn't take that.

I've been working on this game for about a year now, and I'm really excited to finally release it! I hope you enjoy it! If you want to support any of my future games, follow me on twitter! I still don't get how it works but we can figure that out later...
