I've finally begun playing this gem I've found, and my thoughts and feelings are many and forming.
I would like to start however by expressing something: I very strongly like the art of this game, and much of that has to do with - bear with me - the Western elements.
I can tell that at least a little bit of anime influence was present, as exemplified by the frame when the restaurant floods, wherein Carrie's eyes are squinted in those upside-down sevens and the way her arms are shown to flounder. The ''teleport'' the character playing the barista role does also reflects this.
However, much of the rest of the art style is impressive and reminds me of two of my personal favorite periods of American Animation History: the late classic era, when characters were still drawn like their 1920's counterparts, yet the animation grew increasingly fluid, limbs grew slightly more jointed, and colors were added to bring out character; and, the golden age of animation, in terms of how expressive Carrie, Calcia, and the patrons are. I can just imagine a contemporary-styled Hannah-Barbera or a Disney short film about each of these characters, complete with those smooth eye rolls and signature visual gags.
It's not just these, either. The art style, in terms of individual frames and scaling - especially in the slide show sketches between stages - remind me of Sunday Newspaper Comics like classic Popeye and Peanuts.
Mind you, Mr. Rudolph's art style stands as distinctive on its own; he's made a unique work here for Carrie. That being said, the similarities and, as they apply, inspirations by these keystones of cartooning need to be acknowledged and given credit.

Steam keys for groupees buyers??
I sent the copy of the keys to Remute the night the game launched, and got a reply from him the night after that they were going to be distributed. I'm not involved in the distribution process of that, but I'll be checking up a few days to see if they've been all sent out or not.
I've been waiting forever for the Steam version to come out; I even voted on the Steam Greenlight of it-- Is it still gonna come out on Steam?
They said it'll be out on steam very soon its in the final stages. Achievements and stuff have been made, just waiting on an extra bit to the game I think. Also, if you buy it here you'll get the full on steam I believe, they'll send the key.
Yeah! I'm doing some final touches. I really apologize, combination of MFA classes and burn out has been causing the huge delay. Thank you a lot for your patience. I'll be sending an email on news of the release soon. Maybe a week or so!
Any plans to add this to steam? You can easy get a bunch of yes votes from groupees.
Hope it's not too late, but I finally added it to Steam! Took a while due to school ha. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=607519887

Really fun little game, found it thanks to a video on Hardcoregaming 101.
The only few noteworthy gripes I have with the game are not being able to type out my initials on the game over screen (scrolling through the letters is so tedious!), not being able to turn off bilinear filtering, and the lack of variety when it comes to music. It's also a bit of a shame that the only significant difference between the different levels are the layouts of the tables. Also, is it just me or is there no sound for picking up plates from the tables? That's been tripping me up quite a bit.
The characters are all absolutely adorable, portrayed by really good sprite art, the few gameplay elements that were implemented are really enjoyable, and the different gameplay options (arcade, "easy", endless) made available make this game really worth the asking price!
