Build Furniture With Friends Online!

This is one of the strangest games I've ever written about.  And from someone who worked on the world's biggest gaming magazine back in the 1980s, that's some achievement.  It's called Home Improvement, though it also seems to be known as Furniture With Friends.

The game is actually quite simple to understand and play.  And if you've ever been to a store and come home with some flat-pack furniture, and then spent the whole weekend trying to assemble it, you'll understand this game completely.  Because that's precisely what you have to do.

Use your mouse (you'll soon discover how) to separate, move, position, rotate and drop the pieces that make up the furniture item.  When you manage to complete the piece,  a new item will be delivered for you to start work on.

The game was apparently put together in just 48 hours by a small team involved in a game programming competition.  And it's surprisingly fun to play.

To try it, head to http://thestorkburntdown.itch.io/home-improv in your browser.  You can choose to download the program to your PC, but the easiest option is to just play it in your browser.  You'll need to click on, and download, the Unity web player if you don't already have it.  Once this is done, you're ready to try your hand at home improvement.
