A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Welcome!

So, you wanna join the Postal Service, eh? Well then, you gotta' prove your worth through the Postal Training Program! Hone your organizational abilities through wild mail-sorting gameplay, and work your way up the ranks. Assume the identity of Futokun (Envelope Boy!) and try your hand at 10 frantic levels across 3 unique environments. See how much mail you can sort before the timer runs out!


About

Postal Training Program was created by @yomiparis (art + code) and @ajbookr (music) for the 2020 A Game By Its Cover game jam! This game jam challenged participants to make a game based on an entry to the 2020 My Famicase Exhibition. These custom famicom (NES) cartridges are lovingly crafted every year by designers all over the world. The design that we based our game on was this one here, by @wyel. With the permission of the original designer, we started to craft our little game, and what you see before you now is the result! We hope you enjoy Postal Training Program, and please let us know your thoughts in the comments below!


Controls

Postal Training Program currently only supports keyboard and mouse controls. Use the mouse in the menus, and the keyboard when in a level. The controls are as follows:

  • Mouse - Click on menu buttons
  • Arrow Keys - Control Futokun's movement
  • Shift Key - Hold to run
  • Z Button - Pick up / place objects

The goal is to score as many points as possible by accurately sorting the letters into their respective mailboxes by colour. If a letter enters the correct mailbox, you gain a point, otherwise a point is subtracted. Also, the white letters give you five seconds of bonus time each! Good luck!



NOTICE TO MAC USERS: If your machine is telling you that the app is damaged, you need to turn off Gatekeeper in order to launch the game. Here is a simple guide to doing so.

Really nice overall style (graphics, music, etc...).
Althought different, it reminds me the Game Gear classic "Ganbare Gorby"/"Factory Panic".

Thanks for the game :)

Thanks for the comment! And I totally see the resemblance to that game, down to the がんばる motif :)
