Home is a safe place, but it takes work to keep it warm, cozy, and functional for all. In "Upkeep," you play a homeowner rushing around connecting the waterpipes of the house to keep things running for the day. Players move and swap pipes to create pathways from the source to several household appliances, all-the-while fending off hoards of rats eager to destroy your hard work. We hope you'll enjoy our 2D, Top-down, race-the-clock brawler!
