Smile While: a joyful free colour extravaganza

Bright and beautiful

Smile While [Itch.io page] is a free project I downloaded entirely because it promised bright colours and confetti. It delivered bright colours and confetti AND noises! It's more of a mood-lifting desk toy than a game and I love it.

Watch on YouTube

You click on the background to generate more noise and toys, and you click and drag to waggle the toys around or create more particle effects. I feel like this is a really useful thing for if you feel like you deserve an impromptu desk party. I often feel like that.

Made by Matthew Keff, Smile While is free to download for Windows and Mac from Itch. A browser-based version is over here.
