EAT: THE REVOLUTION is a Surprise Creepy eating-Simulation Game developed in 2017 by developer Crows Crows Crows.

The basic gist of the game is that the app will present food items, and you click on them to eat them. As you eat, the game will also give you messages in between meals. It seems simplistic enough, but the more you open and close the app, the more the food and messages will change- revealing some surprisingly creepy meals and sayings as you progress. There's no music, but there's a dark ambiance that plays the entire time, along with loud biting sounds and typing noises.

Despite the odd premise and gameplay, there is something like a story: The text encourages the player to keep eating, kill "Uncle Hunger", and join your comrades in a country full of food, away from evil capitalism and starvation.

The app is available for free download on the Google Play store as well as the Apple store.


Tropes found in this game:

  • Big Eater: The entire point of the game is to eat, eat, eat, and not stop. The game encourages you to keep devouring everything it gives you.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: The pictures eventually start to appear in black-and-white, most likely just to jar the player and shift toward being more horrific.
  • Extreme Omnivore: The player, evidently, as they eat everything from fruit, to raw eggs, to baby-doll heads.
  • Food Porn: Less due to the pictures themselves, which are just stock photos of food and non-food items, but the text gushes about the act of eating, how hungry you are, how good the food is, and how you just need to keep eating. It can make the food seem more appealing than it is...at least until you're presented with things that are decidedly not so appetizing.

  • Surprise Creepy: At first, the game seems like it's just a silly eating simulator with some weird messages thrown in. Then the colors start to gradually fade, the "food" gets less and less appetizing or edible, and the whole tone shifts from quirky and fun, to unsettling and tense.
