The authors state that this game is "densely packed" with a number of things, and that’s a good description for this game. I was initially very much put off by the title Janitor: It’s a Living, but once I finally realized the goal and set about achieving it, I had a pretty good time. This game seems to have been sufficiently tested prior to comp release (always a plus). There are many, many references to both classic and modern interactive fiction, which is generally fun. I found that making a map and taking notes was considerably helpful, but not necessary in this game, and it was a little challenging to make the map before I realized that the layout of the game is actually much simpler than I’d imagined. I did not have time to play this one through to completion, and moved on to other comp games after the two-hour voting limit, but I will revisit the game when comp season is over, and I look forward to whittling my score right on down to nothing.
