[Sca-cooks] OOP - For Mac OS X users...

This is a freeware game called "The Restaurant" set up as an  
experiment by some people at MIT. You can play as a waitress or a  
diner, and the game encourages you to play between 7-9 PM, because  
while the restaurant is open 24-7, it's most crowded with other  
[real] players.

Graphically, it's akin to what first-person shooters looked like four  
years ago, or so, except you can't kill the cooks.

The file structure looks a bit odd for an OS X application; I'll bet  
there are ports of it for other platforms, or maybe this is a port of  
a game for another platform. Looks a little Linux-ey, actually, but  
maybe there's some sort of client out there for Windozers.

"Confessions", 1782
