Really impressive for such a short time frame! I wish I had read the explanation about what tenants want before I had started, but it's a quick process and the tutorial is very useful. I'm impressed and I'd definitely play an expanded version of the game!

Loved this! The game play was fantastic, the building felt really good and I loved the idea of planning out apartment rooms! (great take on the theme by the way) I only wish I could've been able to have a deeper simulation with the rooms I was building (after I'm done building I couldve have people move in and I could watch my money rise and fall etc.)As for the art and sound, it was minimal but still really nice and accompanied the game play well! Overall really great game! Would love to see this continued and improved!

Hey, nice idea!
You really sticked with the theme.
The art style is really nice and gameplay smooth!

Really interesting game.

The algorithm is a little busted (Adding multiple doors on the same room should be a negative?)

But kept me hooked enough to work up a bit and try different things :)

Also the hitbox/controls for placing a door were a little un-intuitive

I really enjoyed the game, it was a nice experience.

It was a bit hard to grasp at first but when you finally click ("oh. Oooh, okay") it's a really nice puzzle.

A nice, relaxing little puzzle game, I liked it! Could have used the possibility to drag mouse click to create several walls at once.

However, let's be honest though, there's multiple rooms here instead of one :P

Interesting idea, great presentation! This looks SO professional. The music, the colors...everything adds to a very warm puzzler feeling.

Nice style. There is a lot of potential here. I wish there was a bit more of a challenge, but that might be something for later.
Good work!

Great game! I really liked it. Art and sound are amazing, it feels new and though mechanics could be more polished, it's quite fun as it is. I'm sure you'll be at top 100.

Well done!

Loved the game! not exactly "one room" tough :P

This is a pretty cool one! I enjoyed trying to be as efficient as possible. Not a clear loss condition in here, but it takes some fiddling for the win. I'd have liked some ramping up of difficulty though. But props for the tutorials int he first levels. There's room for a post-LD game in here.

The graphics were simple but very suitable. I've recently bought a new apartment, and the floor plans I've been seeing look very similar to the game.

The music was soothing and fitted very well with the game (both the background ambient music and the victory music). Sound effects were decent, but I wasn't keen on the placement sound--kind of a sub-bass 808 tom drum.

Altogether very good!

Great entry! Gameplay was fun, well implemented and can get addictive very easily, I was sad to reach the end.

Also, visuals and sound are clear and polished, so the whole game feels very solid. I could easily see this expanded into a larger game.

Awesome job!! :)

i like to design rooms so i loved this game, sad that its so short. I really like the simplicity of the gameplay using only the mouse to interact. and very good explanations in the first lvls

Nice game, but there is a weird exploit with doors, you can replace every walls with doors and it just makes the price goes up like crazy.

Good game, but it felt like I was just playing the tutorial for the actual game. I also didn't know what my goal income was supposed to be in any level.
Btw, I got a float error at some point so it showed my income as -4.000001 or something.

Dec 27, 2016 @ 12:44am

great overall game. I wish there was a little more guide as far as how to get ROI.... but a little playing and it can be figured out i suppose

This is a nice concept, i enjoyed it, though it felt a little easy, didn't have much trouble with the puzzles.

Not sure if i missed something, but the winning condition for each level felt arbitrary, often i won before i was done.

I also like what you were going for with the music but its compression feels too high, it can get grating after a while.

Overall a pretty enjoyable game, nice work!

Dec 29, 2016 @ 7:58pm

It was more like multiple rooms, but it was still pretty fun!

I would have liked to be able to drag to place pieces, and to have a universal delete button.

Overall, great job!

Solid concept, very nice art style. The only complaint I had was that the building system was much more difficult than it had to be.

Loved it !
