Maya's life hasn't been going too well lately. Dead parents, laid-off, and now her uncle has suddenly dumped a $5,000 debt and a 30 day deadline on her! Her luck seems to take a turn for the better though when she winds up at Lucky Cafe which offers her a job. Will she be able to make up $5,000 in a month or let herself enjoy life a little with the help of her co-workers?

This is my first visual novel, so there are many aspects of the game that would need more polish. Please point out any problems you encounter (I've only been able to test the Windows version) and feel free to critique! I know I need the help…In essence though, this was a fun project (a labor of two months putting it together and a month of planning) and I hope to improve on my next game.

I'm not sure if this final note is necessary, but Lucky Days is not an accurate depiction of being a waitress/server. You definitely wouldn't find so many customers who'd generously tip $20…On that note though, remember to always tip!

The three endings are a Friendship ending, Runaway ending, and Paid-off ending. The friendship ending includes all the characters and is triggered on day 15. Serving tables gives the most tips. Also be careful about the choices, the choices are locked when scrolling back!

HI, I like this game. I'm having trouble getting $5000. Do you have any tips. I tried 3 times and I'm always so close. 


Hello! Thank you for playing Lucky Days!

As for tips in getting the $5000, make sure you always wait tables and always get $20 for each scenario, if you get anything less, even $15, you won't make the goal. One strategy would be to save before every choice to make sure you get the $20 since there's no rollback (because I was bad at game design back then, I'm sorry;;)

I wish you luck! And another tip: When you get all the endings, if you play one more time, you'll get to see a bonus "date" scene!
