Good art work and story.

Awesome take on the theme! I agree that more mini-games would be awesome, but you got a really great idea here and you completed the jam (!!!), so I hope you come back to this 

Developer

Thank-you! We've been working on improving it in our spare time, we'll push up a new and improved version after the jam! :)

Nice visuals, nice music, all the minigames being the same kinda limited the fun I had, and it's a bit ironic that the activities which were supposed to reduce stress were all about correct timing and key presses. If the minigames themselves were more relaxing and the player can take their time, that would've been more appropriate.

Developer

Definitely a good point. We ended up finding it amusing as we worked on it that the de-stressing process itself was basically stressful for the player. After the Jam we'll try to get back to it and modify each task to have a varied, more relaxing mini-game. Thanks for checking it out!

This was me during the game jam.

Fun game!  I didn't quite get it at first, until after I played the first minigame.  I think having more variety in tasks would make it more interesting, though.  I love the music too!

Developer

Thanks! Originally the plan was to have a different mini game for each task. The mini game that made it in was originally meant to be practicing and instrument, which would have made more sense, hehe. As I'm sure you also experienced however, as the jam counted down, we had to start making drastic adjustments.

Fun idea! I can definitely relate to the backstory..

Developer

Hehe, thanks! It is also all too relatable to my friend (other designer) and I. Thanks for checking it out. :)

Cool minigame!

Is it possible to run out of activities? At some point I seemed to just have played them all and my stress was rising and I couldn't do anything! Felt kinda... stressful. Good job!

Thanks! It is definitely possible to run out. If you do well in each mini-game and always make sure you sleep whenever your stress is low enough, you can make it through the night. :)
