Challenging game! I included it in my Love Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Charming, voice acting is solid, sets a good mood with humorous overtones to a dirty job. Gameplay was confusing at first, though your tutorial helped clear it up.


This story is so deep. Hilarious game, there isn't really anything to complain about except the ending. I wanted a conclusion to this masterpiece!


Thank you for the nice comment! :) I actually wanted to go deeper on Rüdiger's death, but didn't have the time. It give me a reason to make a sequel :D


I don't want to copy paste a reply to everyone like a weirdo, so I post a comment instead. I made a Tutorial for everyone who didn't get it:


Oh god, I love and hate this game, all at once.

First the bad: holy shit, I have no idea how to "rub at a low frequency"

The good: Absolutely everything else. The progression, the voice overs, the interface, the book, the graphics, I love it. What a great job, absolutely addicting. I ended up taking 40 minutes to finish the game! Great job!


Thank you, Seppi <3


The voice acting hit me like a sack of bricks, it was amazing. Really impressive given the timeframe. You really nailed the aesthetic you were going for, it felt like a weird mix between janitor and grungy cop.
I feel like the poop cleaning was a little too far on the side of frustrating and not quite satisfying enough. The steps that needed speed were fine, but hitting the right frequency when cleaning slowly was a little painful. Maybe a more robust feedback system would help with that, on top of the sparkles you've currently got

Great job.


Thank you so much! I agree. I totally knew it was going to be really hard to understand and I really squeezed in that little feedback I managed to get in, but I guess I should have concentrated on that more instead of all the other stuff around it, though that was more fun and it seems like other people appreciate it as well :D Thank you for the nice comment!


Absolutely hilarious (well, as hilarious as poop can be) set up. Sadly, no matter how many substances I put up and how much I scrubbed with different things, the green sludge/poop was not coming off! So I didn't make it very far. Nothing seemed to happen. ;(               

Awesome voice acting and sound work though.


I am happy people found it funny :D I almost took all of that stuff out a couple of times. Watch the tutorial I just made if you like!


i couldn't clean the poop :(
