Would love to see an extended post-dare version of this with maybe a campaign or something like that. :) Beautifully-done.

I liked the game a lot I think this falls in my "could easily be a mobile game" category. I found objects not easily distinguishable in rooms so it requires quite a while to get used to it. Overall, a very good job with graphics, mechanic and music anyway.

Really good game, the concept of delivering the max ammount of necessity from the customers is pretty neat.

Good job overall.

hey there, first of all, the graphics are spectacular, the idea is really unique, and the gameplay is fast paced if you want to get a high score, i really liked this game, however, you might benefit from a better explanation of how to play, and maybe not start quite so fast at the very beggining of play, thanks for making a great game!

I really liked this game. I'm not a fan of pixel art, but this one was really nice. And the game was fun to play. :)

The mood in this game is very nice. Graphics, music and gameplay really make a very solid experience. The gameplay is very straightforward and the reward system very clear. Love how you can instantly jump to play, since it's very intuitive.

If I'd were to make a suggestion, I'd say to make the "collision box" bigger when dragging the people to their room (maybe including all the drawing instead of just the character) so it would be easier to pick them up.

Overall I found it a really great entry. Congratulations on making this!

Super polished entry! I really like the concept, I can easily imagine it turned into a full-fledged game (for example, to give the earnings more meaning that to act like a score, such as getting new rooms or refurbishing the existing ones)

Nice job! :)

Nice casual game. Cute pixel art.
Perfectly fits for mobile.

Great polished entry! I believe I got some customers that requested room types I didn't have at all, that's the only flaw. Keep working on it, it's great.

Dec 19, 2016 @ 10:57pm

Really nice addictive game. My best score is 8600 :)
Nice music also, fits to the game very well !

Pretty awesome! My main suggestion for improvement would be to add some sense of progression. Not only would that help give your game a longer play-time, but also would help people learn the different room aspects more easily instead of having to tackle them all at once while also learning the controls of your game.

I did also find that sometimes it was hard to easily distinguish the different room features at a glance, but that's more of a minor issue. (Though maybe that's intended as part of the challenge?)

All that said, this is great times for an LD entry :)

This is a very polished game. It took me a while to figure out I had to drag people (I had clicked on their information bars before and couldn't drag from there, so assumed I couldn't drag). Then I again took a while to figure out I had to click the room when CHECKOUT appears.

It is not my kind of game, but I can objectively say you did make a very good game.

Graphics are great, music is good, sound effects can be a bit shrill sometimes but they suit their purpose.

Very solid entry.

A great little simulation/management game. Well done.

Very, very nice puzzle. Trying to understand the queries of the guests are immersed in the atmosphere of the game. Graphics - Shine!
Need a smoother start. Now the learning curve is too sharply goes up in the first few seconds. Then I quickly learned (thanks for the instructions!).

Looking forward to the game. What will happen in the next month?

Dec 28, 2016 @ 7:12pm

Extremely well rounded production overall. The learning curve is a bit too steep, but it's not impossible. Loved the art and presentation, would translate to mobile quite well I think. Great work!

Dec 28, 2016 @ 7:40pm

Really nice game! Feels very polished. Well done :)

It was pretty fun! I didn't really understand how to play at first, since the "how to play" didn't really have text, which I think would've clarified it even more. That being said, I did figure it out eventually.

Great Job!
