Hikikomori Simulator is a stat-management game where you attempt to keep the titular hikikomori (Japanese for social recluse) in their room at all costs! Pick activities for your hikikomori to do and keep an eye on their stats to make sure they are clean, fed, entertained and relaxed in the only place they can call home — their room.

my record for this game. maybe this girl should read books on cooking and time management.

This is all too relatable, especially the part where I keep losing.

It's really funny and hard, i just reached third day haha
