Patch 3/17 - Now with more gender!

Helo! We just put out a small patch to the game that should fix a few of the long-standing issues. Here's a list of changes:

-Camera inversion now works properly
-Fixed broken achievements: explore every area, incinerate 100 items, collect all trading cards, windowshopper (it's now timer-based)
-Added more possible genders

We have a lot of other cool projects and are not planning any more updates to the game at this time, though we will still keep our eyes peeled here for bug reports and issues that we can fix. Thanks for supporting us!

Life Update + Patch Announcement

I wanted to put out an update to share a bit of what’s been going on with Diaries in the months since launch. But first, I want to apologize for the low amount of communication during that time.

Sundae Month is a small company and there’s only one member of the Diaries team still working on the project (that’s me, Izzie). Our first steam release has been exciting, inspiring, and also overwhelming. I’m sorry that the state of the game or our plans for it haven’t always been clear. I’m a part-time developer working full-time at a grocery store, and I’m still getting used to striking that balance.

I also want to announce that we are doing some final updates on the game! We’ll be patching a few known issues and rolling out a special content update, so stay tuned for patch notes in further announcements.

Over the past six months since the game launched, Sundae Month has been super busy. Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor won Best 3D Art at Montreal Independent Games Festival in September. In October we won Best Story/World Design at Indiecade in Los Angeles, and last week we were honored to be nominees for Best Student Game and the Nuovo award at the Independent Games Festival at GDC, as well as an honorable mention for Best Sound Design. It’s been incredible and overwhelming to see people’s response to the game and have the opportunity to travel far from our wintery home in Vermont.

We have been hard at work on other projects, including Dad Quest (out now on early access) and another game that we’re getting ready to announce. Considering many of us are students too, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind.

Finally, I just wanted to deeply & personally thank everyone who has supported us and played the game, shared it on social media, drawn fan art, and just generally brought this ancient mazelike city to life. It hasn’t always been an easy journey for us, and you make it all worth it. Thank you!

About This Game

Take in the trash...

Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor is an anti-adventure game about picking up trash in an alien bazaar. Play as the Janitor, an Alaensee girlbeast with a municipally-subsidized trash incineration job and dreams of leaving the planet of Xabran's Rock far behind her.

Explore the Spaceport! Navigate the maze of alleyways, side streets, plazas, and bridges as you search for discarded items to burn. Investigate one of various entrances to the mysterious subterranean sewerdungeon, or climb the ominously symmetrical Ziggurat to get a better view of the urban landscape! If you pay attention and keep track of landmarks, you won't get lost... probably.

Embrace routine! Spend your days cleaning up litter, finding food, and testing your luck at lottoshrines scattered throughout the area. Daily tasks form the backbone of your life as the Janitor, providing structure and monotonous security in an uncertain world! Do not deviate from your routine. Pray, work, eat, sleep. Do not deviate from your routine.

Suffer the Curse! Stick your scentflaps where you shouldn't, and you may just walk away with an ancient cranial entity haunting your every waking moment! Consult local Necresses, pray to the Nine Goddesses, purchase ritual objects, and rub the giant sword to balance your personal luck favorably! Maybe that will make the whispering stop!

Embark on an anti-adventure! Find a middle ground between your life of menial drudgery and a culture of exciting quests and powerful heroes, and you might finally find a way off Xabran's Rock!
