A cute first game, January 26, 2020

A very basic game with a simple (Spoiler - click to show)guess-the-verb puzzle, but it has some charm for its size.

If you liked this game, you'd probably also like "Pick up the Phone Booth and Die."

Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die knock-off, February 6, 2022
by Cody Gaisser (Florence, Alabama, United States of America, North America, Earth, Solar System, Milky Way, Known Universe, ???)

Don't Push The Mailbox is an homage to the joke game Pick Up The Phone Booth And Die. Mailbox is more complex than Phone Booth, with more things to do and more ways to lose; but it lacks the simple absurdity of the game it imitates.
