A love story told through a toothbrush. A scandal narrowly avoided through making the bed. A deep space biohazard explored while washing your hair. These are just a few of the stories told through work/play, a collection of microRPGs designed for people with executive dysfunction where the mechanics are household tasks and the rules are all readable on a single phone display.

work/play includes 10 unique microgames across a wide variety of genres and premises to gamify everything from waking up and getting out of bed to washing dishes and folding laundry. 

suggested optional price is $10. work/play is made available for free to increase accessibility to individuals and communities with a significant need or financial obstacle, which so frequently co-exists with the struggles the game endeavors to address. please feel free to download at any price point according to your ability.

Lovely, creative, both soothing and energizing, a truly excellent collection of tiny LARPs! I like them all, but the laundry folding game that includes union organizing themes might be my favorite.

thank you! the idea is great: these are kind of "tips / life gamification". I added your LARPs to my References for my current work-in-progress game. Thanks 

I love this? I love this. 

On my Bad Days literally everything can be a struggle, so I've always been on the look out for ways to help my life. These games are such a clever way to try and help with the constant, never ending slog of being a human. I can not recommend them enough.

I love this concept and can't wait to try them! Thanks Alex!

Thank YOU! I hope you enjoy them!

This is delightful, and I can see it being really useful! Thankyou :)


Thanks so much! I hope they bring some joy into your day!
