On the contrary I found it stressful... Like there was someone standing over me, making me tidy up exactly to their taste. Especially the level with the drawer- looked fine to me! I don't see why the paperclips should go in this compartment not that one. The books seem tidy enough already from the beginning. They are on a shelf aren't they? I think I needed more clues that this person I'm cleaning for is actually a neat freak, that they really want the pencils to be arranged by height, rather than finding out that my pencil tidying is inadequate without explanation

Hi, thanks for sharing, we appreciate your perspective!


Maybe if you gave me a score like a C- for the pencils, B+ on the drawer, I'd see that the tidying is okay, not terrible, then I would figure out it could be better. It feels like I'm getting an F for a tidy drawer right now, plus the cat keeps messing up the plates!


as someone who finds cleaning and games therapy, this is my everything


This game is so good!! It's a blessing for my brains 😩🙏  it's so relaxing 

The art is so beautiful too !! I love it so much. I can't wait to see more from you 🤗❤️

Simple concept, but cute game. I can't wait for the full version! :D


I played the first demo of this game, and I really liked it. Now I got to play the new demo, and I love it! It had a bit more challenge and a much better overall feel to it. The art style and the music is just great. I really enjoyed playing and recording the new demo!

Good stuff, devs! Looking forward for the full release.

Thank you!


This was really relaxing , excited to see what you do with it ( more levels and possibly seeing the cat more)


This is so cute!!! I can't wait for the full release- I wonder what else can be done with this game. It's super relaxing. 

Hi Pikalulz, thanks so much for playing! It was really fun to watch :) There's plenty more on the way so stay tuned!


I love this game so much. GIVE MORE A LITTLE TO THE LEFT please.


Adorable game! I can't wait for the full release :)


fun game!


Thank you for the game! it was really interesting and satisfying at the same time! hope to see its full release! 


Cute game, but the screen randomly tints red which kinda ruins it

Hi blue_skye, can you explain this further? This sounds like it could be a bug or a localized issue.

Hi! It happened when I changed to one of the levels, I can't remember which one. I don't think it was something on my end because the red was entirely contained within the game screen, it wasn't on any other part of the screen outside of it. It stayed for three levels and went away. 

I think this happens when you accidentally select and the screen turns red? cuz that happened to me to

Hi! Thanks for chiming in here. Is this occurring with the browser or downloadable version of the game? If it's the browser version, are you playing the windowed embed or fullscreen?

Does this occur when clicking and selecting objects in game, or does it happen with accidental selection of the webpage text outside of the game space, like when hitting CTRL+A, or perhaps dragging from outside the embed and highlighting the page text? 

This happened to me when I was playing both windowed embed and fullscreen browser version, I changed between them and it didn't change anything. It happened when clicking things in game. 


this is a cuteeee gameeeeeee


Cute game! It was a little hard to understand what to do but I can't wait for the final game!

Thanks so much for playing! Yep, we're aware it can be a little obtuse at points. Player feedback and UI are primary focuses for the full release. We want the game to be fun, not confusing!


Soooooo cute, really taps in to my love of organization. Excited to see what new things we'll be able to organize with the full release!

Wow, thank you so much for your message! Countless others have inspired us to pursue making games and we are so happy to hear that we may be able to inspire other game dev journeys as well :)

Super fun! Can't wait to see the full game


Terrific. So delighted to see that there's going to be a full version! Lovely, cozy art style and deeply satisfying gameplay.




Hi there, sorry to hear you're stuck!

For the pencils puzzles, look for markings on the background- they're a hint as to what pencils go where!

If it's still not working, you can see the solution for the coloured pencils puzzle here: https://twitter.com/MaxInfernoGames/status/1406211694494355464


omg thank you ive literally been trying to figure it out for days bc im dumb :,


Great game! The first screen already got me lol, back a bit! Also, the paper puzzle makes me confused earlier, i though it wants me to place it in layout..

Can't wait for full release, gonna play it again!

Hey, thanks so much for playing and providing your gameplay vid! Every play-thru is different and lets us see how players intuitively approach the puzzles.

You'll be happy to know that we've put quite a bit of thought into the full game on how to ease the initial onboarding for new players. The tutorial puzzles are still non-verbal, so you'll still have to be observant and play around to understand what to do, but they'll introduce the basics more simply.

Thanks again for your support, can't wait to see your play of the full experience :)


I can't wait for the full game!! :D


this is so adorable!! i love it so much. so calming - can't wait for the full game :D


Nice game, thanks :)

What a nice game! It was a little shorter than I hoped but I still had a fun time playing and recording it.

The art and sound design are great.

Can't wait for the full game!

Please check out the video and my channel: VladMan.


The cat was a jumpscare! Is this the full game? Or is this just a part, cuz my hand hurts! Good game though.


Hey, thanks for your comment! This is just the demo, the full game will be out soon, with 50+ unique puzzles and other fun stuff yet to be announced ;)
