Siblings Octavio, Tony, and Pablo are exploring outside of an abandoned factory, looking for the world’s best snails. You can guess where this is going.

Living Playground is a short puzzle-based adventure game with a dash of horror theming for flavor. The player controls Tony, the cheerful slide girl, as she attempts to reunite with her brothers and find an exit while avoiding multiple untimely ends. Conveniently, the children aren’t human but are living toys themselves, playground equipment which can take human form. Along the way, they uncover interesting details about the factory they're trapped in. What happened to the rather cheery-sounding owner? How did things get this WEIRD? At least the monster parts make sense, because there are some strange playthings wandering the factory.

Content Warning:  MILD
A full list is available in the game's readme file, but it's mostly fantasy violence and very light touches of horror imagery. There is a chase sequence.

  • Approximate 1.5 hour playtime
  • 100% original visual assets all made by me!
  • Some bgm also made by me
  • One short animated sequence
  • One ending
  • Less snails than promised

Please feel free to contact me for bug reports, critique, or any other reason. While this is a remake of my first game, I'm still learning the ins and outs of RPG Maker and any advice anyone has just helps me improve my next games!

Hi, how are you? Well, I thought I could translate this game to spanish but I don't know how can I do that :c because I never did it. I know I need your permission too. I have a Youtube channel called Play With Me were I translated Black Rock Shooter: The Game to spanish using a video editor, so if you are intersted you can check it out. Having said that, I'll be waiting for your answer :)


Hello!  I'm sorry for my late reply!

Right now, the only way I'm aware of translating the game directly is by editing the text within the RPGMaker XP engine itself. 

If you're willing to take the time to use a video editor instead, that would also be fine by me!


Thank you so much! 

Hello, may i know in what order should i play these Playgrounds?


Hi there!  I tried to make it so that you don't need to play them in any particular order, but I think the best bet would be to play this one first and The Witch's Puppets second!

Thank you! I like all your games(the best so far is "Do us part") and i think they are pretty underestimated.

Walkthrough says "Return the heart to the rabbit". But i can't find the heart. I've searched every pixel, nothing

One of the lockers within the locker room contains the heart!  I admit the lock solution is a little obtuse, but it's the number of lockers time the number of rows of lockers.  Then you add the number of shelves in the dark room.  Then add 29 (the number of the locker marked with a ! on the paper)

Sorry for the silly question but- we're supposed to start in this room. Right? It kinda looks like an extra room so I wasn't sure.

YOU ARE, IN FACT, NOT!  H-haha that's my debug room, I accidentally left the start point there after testing... I'm uploading a fixed version now!
