A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Changing some lights in an apartment? This should be a breeze! You're a gig worker on TaskHare who's accepted a last minute job on Halloween morning. Unbeknownst to you, the three roommates you're helping out are not what they appear (not to mention whatever their costumes are).

  • Navigate your interactions with the cast in any order with text that changes according to your choices
  • A costume contest that leads to one of three endings
  • Original sprites, emojis, music, and SFX
  • Three fully voiced NPCs
  • Extra Rooms: Music, Replay, Achievements
  • Accessibility Options: OpenDyslexic font, image and sound descriptions

This was a blast! The characters are all a lot of fun (Clara being my favorite), and the full voice acting adds such a lovely layer of polish! I also love the musical references in the soundtrack! <3

Very impressive jam submission! ^^
