sips.gba - The game and entry for GBA WinterJam 2023

sips-live.gba - A non-interactive version that does away with the UI and is just nice to look at. Buy this as a way to support me making more games.

Great game, can i put your game in our ios game emulator for free?

awesome concept and cozy execution. would love a fuller experience where your choices had more visible effects on the aesthetic of the cafe. it feels like it wants to be a "aquarium" style of idle game instead of a "frantic cookie clicker" style, so customization would feel great.

really cool proof of concept regardless

Any chance for an update with more options?

Love the concept, the art style and the lofi music are very well done. Really hoping that you'll expand on this concept some more.

The Lo-Fi, the art style, and the simplicity, its an excellent game to take a coffee or a tea in the morning, im in love <3


Cute and well done. Would love to see a sequel/successor to this where each day is a different song and different items to buy. Like a cozy interactive album or something.


I have been thinking about this more and more lately. I would love to expand this to maybe 10 levels. Each would be a hospitality business that you can help revitalise. I have tons of ideas like a taco truck, a rooftop bar, a sushi train restaurant etc.

Sounds lovely

can’t wait



Hey, that's my Gameboy! 😁

Love this! The artstyle, music, and slow paced idle gameplay blends nicely. I could easily leave it turned on all day
