A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
My bichette is waiting at home and I’m determined to bring her something special. The little dépanneur on this side street may still be open. It’s my last chance.
A SMALL GAME BY G.P. LACKEY
You’re out on a rainy late-night quest for a very particular gift. The only problem is you don’t know what it is yet...
Finding a corner store that’s open at this hour must be kismet! With the help of its peculiar proprietor and her unusual inventory, you’re sure to find something worth your search. What will the gifts you pick foretell?
The dep is closing in an hour, so be forewarned… this is a single-sitting game.
- Shop and explore at your own pace, discovering new secrets the longer you stay
- Collect as many or as few gifts as your heart desires, budget is of no concern when it comes to your love!
- Set in a magical, mystical interpretation of Montréal
- Estimated completion time: 1–2 hours, a miniature jaunt
- Fully bilingual (English and French with a Québec twist) - switch as you like!

the style is off the charts even starting from the alleyway graffiti. seeing the goddesses from diaries of a spaceport janitor was such a fun surprise - that's my favorite game! even without that this was lovely and a really cool experience. thank you :)
This game is SO relaxing! And I really loved the spiritual part of it too. Oh, and I can't forget the really smart implementation of the language choosing. Well done!
Very lovely, really enjoyed the mood of this game!
J'adore! Trop contente de retrouver du québéquois, le style graphique est génial et l'univers est trop beau! gg
Loved the return of Beb and fellow deities who I met in Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor. I wonder if I will find them again, and where next?
It is a cute game, short but I've actually been in like 2 hours just for watching everything. The only "issue" I've had is when throwing objects, sometimes these are unrecoverable and you just have to restart the game. For the rest, it is a pretty fun game and I love the ambient and graphics. I personally wouldn't add anything to the game, it is pretty as it is.
A new fav game of mine :)
Short but cute game about a corner store and the mysterious items held within. Despite my addiction to capsule toys, I managed to tear myself away from the hunt for coins and buy a gift. A Turnip! But not just any Turnip, a Haunted Turnip!
The dialogue and lore building felt very natural and was a fun little experience. The ending was also adorable. Well worth a play!
LOVE the art style and the world created within the game - kept me wanting more and going back in to find more hidden gems! :)
Got a possible spoiler-y question that is currently puzzling me atm.
The some of the Gods depicted in this game are also the Gods depicted in "Diary of a Space Janitor", which leads me to ask.
Is there gods depicted in this game are fictional (I mean like in terms of in-universe not literal) or is there some type of history I can read up about them? I try googling up the names of the deities but couldn't find anything beyond couple lost players of "Diaries of a Space Janitor" looking for directions.
Asking because I would be interested in reading more about these deities if there is more to read about them.
Got this game from the Bundle for Ukraine, so good! Also, after playing this, I almost instantly recognized your bird art in The Zium Museum! Good stuff!
Such a sweet game. Thank you!
I was looking through the Ukraine bundle for games to relax to and this was perfect! The shop has such a cozy atmosphere and I loved all the little details.
Very chill and cute experience.
I absolutely loved my first playthrough of this game, and I'm excited to do it again and see different things. Thank you <3
Lovely little game, made me laugh out loud when I finally figured out why the cat statue kept moving around. Also made me facepalm.
Loved the owner, and the objects - I definitely feel like I haven't seen everything yet after 2 playthroughs.
Just finished the game and it's one of the best things I've played in a long long while.
This micro-cosmos of a shop and its lovely owner had so much personality.
I want to play it again, but on the other hand, I'm happy with my choices and the present I went home with. I don't want to change that.
Oh, and the Quantum Cat was a delightful touch.
¡Gracias por hacer este juego!
scary basement wall
i love the way you choose a language in this game
I just can't get enough of the soundtrack
C’était tellement mignon mdr. Je n’ai pas réalisé que c’était Québécois jusqu’à ce que je remarque une partie de l’argot intrinsèquement Québécois d'Eugénie. Jeu charmant et émouvant.
Le texte n'est pas toujours très lisible...
‼️ montréalais dans notre collection de jeux-video!! :)
Si cool de trouver un jeu vraiment québecois ici dans un bundle itch.io! Et les panneaux de travaux de rue faisaient vraiment un feeling Montréal :D Belle ambiance étrange, bravo!
playing this was such a pleasant experience, i sort of wish i could understand french so i can appreciate the intuitive language / game mechanic more! the atmosphere is cozy, it makes me want to stay in the store longer. i love the dialogue, plus the way stories are told through the objects is just *chef's kiss* amazing flavor.
the divination bit is also a wonderful aspect. in my first playthrough i carefully and earnestly chose the object and i was really happy with the result i got, haha
Really loved playing this game, the art style was what drew me in but the calming vibe from it was so enjoyable. Looking forward to playing it through again...p.s. I apologise for butchering the pronunciation
Quite enjoyable -- and perplexing!
How do you break that skull?! There *must* be a way! I tried throwing it down the stairs, dropping the crowbar on it, chucking it high in the air... nothing! Someone help me solve this mystery...
I tried closing the gates on it and putting it into the giant hand but neither worked. If you figure it out let me know!
A short miniadventure in which you stumble upon an item shop. The game does incredibly well to evoke a warm and comfortable feeling, inviting you to stroll through the aisles and take in a decidedly french attitude to life. I wont spoil the end and feel like there is a bit more that could have been done with the concept, but its slightly surprising nature and delving into an otherworldly almost spiritual mystical atmosphere really did well to pull people in. 3,5/5

I played this game for hours yesterday, shot straight into my top 10 games of all time. I love everything about it! The world, the art style, the music, the small story fragments, the exploration! My only complaint, if you can even call it that, is that I want more! I want to know everything about this universe you've created, I want to explore every inch of the store and solve every mystery.
I do also wish there was a wiki or something, I've found a few things that I'm not sure if there's more to do with them or if they're set pieces/dead ends. (SPOILER)
The brick wall, the cube, and the ghost in the lower levels.
Got this game in the Indie bundle for Palestinian Aid and I just adore it. I want to see all the endings but also don't want to because the first one feels so. . special? Short but sweet.
Same here. My girlfriend was so happy I didn't get the impression I had any kind of "bad ending".
I really quite liked the idea of this game, but there's just something about the camera movement and settings that made me really feel the motion sickness. It got especially bad when you (SPOILER ALERT) go into the basement areas, especially the stairs (SPOILER END)
Can confirm, the game made me very nauseous very quickly. I'm so confused by what people are saying they found (I looked around, found several items, bought them, got on to the part of choosing my gift and got home and that's it? Where are all of the other things people are seeing? I "played through" twice and did the same thing both times) and so would love to try and figure out what I missed, but it makes me way too sick unfortunately.
J'ai vraiment aimé! Si jamais ça devient un plus gros jeu, c'est un achat assuré! :)
C'était cool, j'ai flatté le chat plein de fois, je me suis fais un café, je l'ai échappé plein de fois (y'a tu moyen de le boire?) avant de l'abandonner dans le frigo, j'ai trouvé des pièces, j'ai acheté une veste, deux poupées dans la machine, j'ai trafiquer un peu avec la radio, j'ai acheté le buste et j'ai jasé avec la caissière. Si je me fie aux commentaire y'a encore d'autres chose possible, alors je vais surement explorer le dep nocture à nouveau :) quand j'ai vu le mot "dépanneur" j'étais genre, hein! un jeu fait par des québecois, faut que je check ça ;) c'est tellement cute, je suis contente d'offrir un peu de mon support. Good job!
I really loved everything about this one. Makes me wish that more games like this existed <3
It's very fun and truly amazing game for exploration ,fantasy also it is healing.
I love all the color themes from the beginning when the character was on the dark alley, (rainy night mood caught my eye in this game. ) When character found the sign above 'Depanneur Nocturne' I could feel the same curiosity what this shop would be like.
<might be spoiler for people just visited here>
Important feature is if you just want to buy some gifts to your bichette, you can do that, Talk with the shop owner and have fun with it, if you want to do some exploration and dig up more information in the store, you can do that too. It's all about your choice and your decision!
I also liked the color theme changes with different soda whenever I drank it, it changes the whole mood and I only could see what colors this liquid dose shown me, and I felt I was in drug too. Just follow the mood and make your choice, it's absolutely amazing feature.
I played this three times with different route and I think I'll try more, It is really beautiful and stunning, thank you for this such wonderful experience!
I ADORE this game, it's so beautifully constructed! The artwork is perfect and the world is so tactile. Just wow!
My bichette's countryside house has a bog nearby where we went bugchasing as kids. I feel like it needs an offering or two for all we've received — from it, and in general. The Quagmire Consortium would be pleased (it if actually exists, that is).
However I couldn't withstand the wormblet. Figured our minds need a place to be as we get stuck in day-to-day lives. We hope we can find an artificer willing to go through the complex atmosphere invocation procedure to resupply the wormblet's worth of nutrients for some more years, when the time comes.
Speaking of it, I was looking up to the Dépanneur's clock, but I was told it better be left unsold. Reasons unclear. An acknowledged mystic could say the cadence of its ticks have come into resonance with the place so strong they became one.
Well, you can't buy time anyway. Even if one could, I wouldn't afford it. Besides that, I was hazy and unable to tell if I left my porte-monnaie home, had to scrape some rounders up from the shelves as I went. Luckily they support the new-fangled L-System.
In spite of that, I had a great time in Dépanneur Nocturne. We chatted with the owner quite a bit. We like the same cooking show on the radio.
Looking forward to coming there again with my bichette. Maybe they shouldn't open the street after all — I won't like to see the place populated.
Just amazing, thank you.
Very nice! The game locked up on me though in the [Spoiler?] second room you talk to the shop owner. I brought an item from the shop and the whole thing locked when I showed that to her, she didn't say anything and I couldn't get out of the state again, tried pressing everything.
Will give it another shot later on I really dig the mood!
Sorry about that, Ill look into it! Thanks for playing.
