Got the cart from FC in the mail today and immediately popped it into my GBC. What a treat! Loved the art and the story was very relatable. The cuss button saw a lot of use. I've found one extra to-do, are there many more?
It’s Saturday. You’ve survived the work week. Congratulations! Now, before you can kick back and relax for the weekend there are just a few simple things to accomplish on your to-do list.
1) Buy coffee filters
2) Call parents
3) File tax returns
4) Take the dog for a walk
5) Return overdue library book
Feeling ambitious? Perhaps you will suck it up and finally hit ’send’ on e-filing those tax returns. But wait, what’s this?! The date to e-file has past?! You’re going to need to print out your forms and mail it in old school – which means you now need to pick up stamps. No worries, you think. You can swing by the post office on your way to the store to pick up coffee filters. You decide to head out, but where did you leave your keys? You ask your roommate. “Where did you last have them?” Ughhh!!

Thank you so much for grabbing a cart! Glad you enjoyed the game. There is only the one additional chore. You can get arrested though, if you anger the right character. Thanks again!
This is adorable. The ending is very relatable lol. GGs!
XD That was fun lol. Made me laugh quite a times. Also going around cussing at everyone made me feel so nice ^^ Felt very nostalgic just like pokemon back in the days haha
Help mee i gave lola a cook chicken that have been in the kitchen for dayss and i need an vacuum cleaner now i don't know how to buy it i think i cant finish the game please help:(
Hello! You can buy rug cleaner in the grocery store. If you need assistance, one of the other customers knows where it is.
Finally played this. Charming game! Made me laugh a few times, especially at the end.
Nice, quick play. Like it.
Hmmm looks like I have to steal your Curse mechanics!
This was really cute, thanks for making and sharing it!
That was nice~ I thought we needed to finish all 5 tasks but I think seeing the credits after finishing 4 makes a statement
Cute fun game, very adult, I feel more prepared to adult now, thanks...
PRESS K TO CUSS!!!
I loved this, great job. Definitely related to the anxiety :)
Fun little game. On thing I noticed is that when you swear and then transition rooms while the bubble is still up, the bubble glitches and remains on screen until the swear button is pressed again. Cool concept.
will the full or explanded version be free? also, do you plan to make actual gameboy cards? that would be fun
Thanks for your questions! 1) It’s very likely that it will continue to be free to download, unless I need to hire help. Then I’d need to cover the costs. 2) It is my hope to find a publisher. If not I have the capability to create a small self-published run.
how do you get coffe filtrs?
were you able to find them? You can ask one of the shoppers at the the front of the store where they are. Thanks for playing!
I really like this game , it's really fun , and very relaxing! 😊
I really like you set a cursing button , it’s really cool
Postal2 is the best adulting simulator.
Thanks for sharing! I recorded myself playing this video game and uploaded the session on my gaming YouTube channel:
I loved to play this one, it is so funny and cute! My girlfriend also enjoyed playing it, she felt like part of it lol, congrats!
Loved the cuss button, wished people actually reacted to me cussing at them tho
I really loved this one, it's really beautiful how you make a funny game about unfunny adult life. And OMG those freaking keys!
I had a lot of fun playing through this! Not really what I have to do when I'm "adulting" but I can relate for sure haha :)
Charming! Loved the art and how frustrating yet fun it was to find those keys! Nailed it in the adulting theme! Would love to play a whole ingame week of this ha ha ha! Gratz!
this is an interesting game, definitely enjoyed the feature with the shopping where you realistically get trapped forever
Thanks for playing! Ha! I modeled the shopping experience on a typical Saturday at a local Wegmans.
very cute and amazing game
Spam the cuss button for maximum adulting.
does anyone know how to pass the are u awake yet I clicked everything but nothing seems to be happening
This was a cute game about the energy it takes to be an adult, I kinda wish the music ran through the whole game but at a bit of a lower volume but all and all, it was a pretty accurate adulting game!
Thanks for playing! We are in the process of adding more sound. Hope to have it done before the jam deadline.
First GB game I have ever finished))
super cute game but I cant find a spot for the dog to poo
literally, just keep going up and down while strolling and you'll eventually find it lmao
This game was great to play while procrastinating the actual adult responsibilities :D i enjoyed the cuss button immensely
Fun little game! It was nice to play a game about adulting on the weekend while being an adult..and playing it on the weekend.
It was really cute, thank you for making it 😊
I just wanted to say that I enjoyed your game. Thank you for making it!
Just adorbs on so many levels! Very wholesome but i'm sure in the future more will be added to this game entry :) 5/5 Coffees
Thanks for the review! There's a very good chance that this game will be expanded after GB Compo 21.
Great design and graphics, love the concept. I enjoyed it very much!
I'm not even an adult T^T this was so stressful for no reasonT^T but I love this game none the less
