A downloadable game for Windows

Dungeon Janitor Hiring

Welcome to your new job! As the dungeon's janitor you take care of our monsters' well-being, pick up adventurers' left-over limbs, and find ways to let our beloved Dungeon Master look more competent.

Mops & Mobs is currently a demo/prototype for a Dungeon Novel. We plan to make a full game out of it, so feel free to give us feedback (what did you like, what did you hate)!

Caveats:

  • Very short first part of the dungeon
  • Music is placeholder, and a lot of sounds are missing
  • UI is completely placeholder
  • Most settings (resolution etc) are missing
  • We definitely want to work on the quests and dialogs
  • No combat (yet?)
  • No save games

I like it. I hope the development will go on. =)

I like the setting and characters. The noise the dungeon master makes gives me a chuckle every time.


I'm not a fan of the movement mechanic. It's clunky and slow. I would much rather it was just regular first person movement with mouse look. 


I don't understand why as janitor I would need to 'buy' furniture. So the fiction around that mechanic needs to be adjusted a bit to make more sense.

You should probably have the chairs be highlighted green/red if they are correctly linked up with a table as it wasn't clear to me that I was doing the right thing when setting up the chairs.


Overall I am intrigued enough to want to play more. Keep it up!

Thanks for playing! The deco mode is very much WIP and anything will/might change - including the way you acquire and "pay" for furniture!

A very nice atmosphere going on in this game. That music track, even though it's short and a placeholder, adds to a sense of awe and mystery that I hope continues into the story, soundtrack, and dungeon itself!

It's smart that you saved on graphics where it's supposed to be dark. I'd make Gelly have the memories and experiences you'd expect from a Gelly and still be funny. Odette should be a good host and tell you how to get around. Is the goblin boss thing from Casper? The gore wasn't there and are the Trolls disgusting? When does the janitor get paid and why is the janitor the maid? Is Odette squeezing service out of the Janitor extraordinaire to take advantage? You sure need janitors if you have rats. Odette should be Norse? I like names that are memorable.  I like her name, but she mentions some strange hard to pronounce place that I'd easily forget because it's something my brain would spit out. I like discovering interesting things that might be useful later. It teaches home economics, searching, communicating and being resourceful in a fantastic way. Medieval times though had more lore in speech. Sound effects tells you clues, mood or when you unlocked something special. I'd probably spend more time with it if were more rewarding right away. I like treasure, potions, amulets and trading. Perhaps diamonds. Maybe rats should be guides. I like helpful strangers. I'd spend more time too if there was a glamorous glorious being. Someone you'd really like and look up to or else is very ominous. Well It's just a short and it's probably more when its deeper. I'd add some greek mythical characters for style. tricksters. firepower. fairy tale creatures with themes. decorated sword. gauntlet. and finally the grail.

Will there be gamepad support? Will you put on steam as well?

I'm currently working on gamepad support, but as the game is still a prototype it doesn't have the highest priority. It's definitely on the agenda though.

And yes, if everything works out, then Mops&Mobs will be on Steam too!

Please do not spam. :) Right now the game and story are in its infancy, and we will seek out translators when the time is right.

WONDERFUL GAME CANT WAIT FOR THE FULL VERSION

Love a good narrative game, and the fact that it is mixed with tasks, a decoration mode, and more is even better! It shows great promise and I HOPE to see more! Left a follow and your game starts at 21:00 in the video =)

so good

I loved this and I'm looking forward to future versions of the game. I don't know if it's super useful to watch but I also recorded footage of me playing the game and having a good time.

Thanks a lot! Nice playthrough, I enjoyed it, and it showed us some parts we should improve ;)

(+2)

Definitely enjoying the vibe of this one, can't wait to see the use of deco mode to earn money for decoration related puzzles! The few characters in this so far are full of personality that I can't wait to see more of, and the overall vibe of the game reminds me of the older dungeon delving style games, so it's nice seeing it from the employees side of the dungeon crawl.

Thank you so much for this comment - and your elaborate feedback! <3
