A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Buy Now$2.00 USD or more

It's supposed to be your day off. It always happens when it's supposed to be your day off. Your boss from the gas station/convenience store, Shane, always calls you on those days and asks you the same question that isn't a question, so much as a command made politely:

"Can you come in?"

What's different this time is that whether you try to ignore the ringing of the phone or push past your stress and go to pick it up yourself, it wasn't your normal two hands that got their fingers around the smooth plastic of your phone - but a third one, at the end of a fresh arm that grew out of your stomach, forcing you to answer the call.

Thin bright White text on red background of nearly the same brightness.... eyes had to strain to read the darn thing... all the white looks like cyan in my field of vision now.

Did you know there is this thing called "accessibility" that exists?

But yeah, I do appreciate the modern take on The Metamorphosis

hey! sorry, i - quite obviously - didn't think about this aspect when making/coding this, and that fuck up's on me. i'm putting in fixing this on my to-do list.


This game is listed as Win / Linux only -- that means it cannot be installed via the itch desktop client on macOS, even though it is a browser game. Is that intentional? I just tried a test download via the website, and it seemed to work on Chrome on macOS just fine -- at least, on quick inspection.

This felt a lot like my daily life.
