Retail Clerk '89: July 2019 Stable Demo

July 7, 2019
The complete story is now playable with three possible endings. I won't claim this is fun. This is pretty close to the final version. An entire playthrough should take about an hour.

The story is now playable up through the "bad" ending. There are a huge number of changes in this version including saving & loading. It would not surprise me if there is a game-breaking bug somewhere in it.

This was the last major feature I planned to add to Retail Clerk '89. I kept putting it off because I thought it would be a lot of work. It really wasn't though.


Retail Clerk '89: May 2019 Unstable Demo

May 27, 2019
In this demo the rough story for the first seven days is playable. There are eight days planned in total so this is getting closer to the "main story complete" milestone. It still isn't especially fun but I'm not sure that was ever the point of this project.

As far as I can tell, there are no other Splash Lake guides on the internet. So here's one that shows how to unlock all 120 bonus levels.


Retail Clerk '89: February 2019 Unstable Demo

February 24, 2019
In this demo the main story of days 1-5 is playable. It's not buggy but it might be possible to get stuck. This is still a long way from being complete or slightly fun. There are 8 days planned in all so this brings me ~48% of the way to my goal of implementing the main plot this year.
