Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor is described as an “anti-adventure game” but that’s only be due to it refusing to bend to the rigid structure of adventure games. There’s plenty of adventuring to do here.
You play as “an Alaensee woman” (some alien species) who has a trash incineration job. You have to help her out in this, exploring an alien bazaar, and picking up bits of trash along the way.
What’s the saying? One person’s trash is another’s treasure. And the same might be true in this game. Each bit of garbage you pick up has a story behind it and will reveal more about the cultures around you. They may also lead to other discoveries…
Yes, there’s more to the game than simulating the job of a trash collector. It turns out that this janitor has larger dreams that involve “leaving the planet of Xabran’s Rock far behind her.” And around this bustling and vibrant bazaar there are secrets to be found that could help towards realizing that dream.
The only other things known about Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor is that you can “eat perception-altering hallucinogenic eyeballs,” “suffer through an ancient curse placed upon you by a mysterious, screaming skull,” and head into the dangerous sewer dungeons beneath the city in search of treasure.
