Sara wants to go out and play in the sunshine, but she has a few errands to complete before she does that. Nothing special, just sweeping her room, feeding the dog, that sort of thing. What could possibly go wrong?
Made for last november's MAGS contest, the game features two different endings, epic soundtrack by Brassfire, and shiny artwork by Bit Priest, Gameboy, and Corby. Special kudos to Bit Priest, who stuck to drawing while his city was struck by the infamous Hurricane Sandy, and managed to complete quite a lot of art in spite of the force of nature!

The game also has a Voice Pack now. I encourage all people to check both endings because you're missing out if you only see one. The contrast between the endings is the point of the game, after all.

Looks interesting!  Will give it a go tonight.

Edit...

Played it.  Fun little game, I like the scoring system - first time I got 9/10, second time 5000,5000!!

It's given my nightmares about when my daughter grows up though...  8-0

Just finished it, will need to play again for full score. Amazing effort all around, this must be one of the most fully-fleshed out MAGSs I've played.

Sweet little game! Pleasant to look at and listen to. Also, nice to see a little kid as a protagonist for a change.

(also, people, the point of the game is the second ending. If you get 9/10 points and the first ending, you're missing out! Just so you know...)
