About Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor
Developed by Sundae Month and tinyBuild, Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor is an RPG simulation video game, available for the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Players assume the role of an alien janitor girl in this sci-fi game. Begin trapped in the hubbub of a busy sci-fi port where adventures happen and heroes are made. These experiences are only for people luckier or richer than the little janitor, though.
Pick up trash and burn it all, or keep spoils that might be valuable to some. Next, sell these items and find a way of escaping a boring job and luckless life. Furthermore, many users will enjoy the social commentary of this particular tale. The poor janitor only has time for work, and dreams appear just that in this open world "anti-adventure" video game.
Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor Features
Life is wild on the busy planet but not in the day of the lowly janitor. While there is lots of trash for players to collect, there are only a few spaces open in their bag. Make hard choices due to not very many inventory spaces. However, there are many ways that they profit from the trash. Incinerate the junk or try selling it to vendors in the giant city. The stock that merchants are interested in varies from day to day, however, meaning that players must constantly change it up and seek out the best deals.
Another major feature of this game is a mechanic that requires changing gender. The alien girl has a condition called gender dysphoria, so every few days players must find a gender station and change to a new one. Otherwise, the screen starts getting blurry and it's nearly impossible to continue collecting trash or even existing. The social aspect of this game goes far beyond only being poor. Things are looking up in this fast-paced sci-fi world, but not for the poor alien janitor. Pray to any number of gods. Hope for the best while doing whatever it takes to have enough money for staying healthy, food, and seemingly out-of-reach dreams.
Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor offers a very unique take on simulation games. It focuses on the grind and turns it into something sad yet enjoyable. Go on a strange journey through a busy world that completely forgets the help. Experience life in a sci-fi hotspot as an outsider, a lowly janitor hired for a dirty job. That doesn't mean this little alien is without dreams, however. Grind out a living and survive by burning and selling other people's junk. Get lucky by praying to the right gods, or anger them and feel their unmistakable wrath. There are many ways of thriving and breaking free of the bonds in this bittersweet tale.
