Wow bros this game was almost as epic as my last TEAM LIFT. I totally want to see where you got your game design degrees, probably somewhere almost as rad as mine... Anyway I need to get back to the gym, but you know I'll be blasting this game's tunes the whole time, they really got me IN THE ZONE.

I thought the game was cute, then I became friend with Lammy. Now I think the game is awesome.

Cool game; those characters are adorable and the writing is great. Wish there was more to it :D

Awesome music too!

This was extremely weird, in a good way :) Nice touch on having to cycle between characters each day, adds a lot of variety to the gameplay.

Oh great entry!
Loved the art, although the characters were sprites and sometimes hard do find hehe Very funny too! Amazing job!

I accidentally pushed Lammy off the little world :(

Very cute though! And great tunes.

Trippy, interesting game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Love how this flips the theme on its head, and the house animation is fantastic considering it was done in a weekend! Great jam!

The game looks interesting and the graphic style is very unique.
Music is also very nice. If you like weird games you should play this.
