Just wanted to say I really like this idea! It did score 2nd in overall game quality in my game jam, so you should know it is worth pursuing!
Coexist in a small space with your cat ... Cat. For every action you take, they take another, maybe. Maybe they'll stare at you, maybe they'll demand food. Maybe if you're lucky, you can pet the cat.
roommate makes use of simple commands that make up everyday tasks. 'make coffee', 'clean up', 'have nap' are examples of the types of actions that work with the game in its current form. At the moment commands are a tad limited, but I am planning to expand the idea into something bigger down the track.
roommate is a proof of concept made in a day to be submitted to LowRezJam 2019, The Text-Based Adventure Game Jam, and The Emotions and Feelings Jam. LowRez's 'text only' bonus theme, and the Text-Based Jam seemed like a perfect fit, while I wanted to create a sense of 'Togetherness' using the almost-silent company of a pet cat.
