joyeInnkeeperIf life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and if life gives you a reputation for an infestation of evil preternatural vampiric creatures, make a resort location and capitalize on the notoriety. Specifically, the family who star in Innkeeper are dealing with the legend of the aswang, a kind of demonic beastie from Filipino culture. They're also dealing with building and outfitting rooms, upgrading amenities, attracting customers from rednecks to Men in Black, and dealing with all kinds of hotel simulation gameplay you would expect. Can you help them take it all the way to a five star rating?

Unlike most sim games that are set in a make-believe, generally vaguely American world, Innkeeper is emphatically set in a real place: Siquijor, Philippines. This is perhaps the most significant aspect of the game. As you progress through the game, the character Hilaria gives you a rundown of the various types of aswangs in Filipino lore, but you'll also pick up quite about the country just by reading the short bios of each family member in the information section. Without taking itself too seriously, the game manages to satire both Filipino internal society and its international reputation. The game also delights in references to other Flash gaming hits and internet memes. This gives it a good balance of local color and global appeal.

Getting a really excellent simulation game within the confines of the typical Flash game dimensions is tricky, but Innkeeper wisely keeps the overall scale of the game down, with a maximum of six floors even at the very end of the game. The excellent, although unskippable, tutorial does a good job of explaining the complicated but efficient interface, and the game makes a great use of space generally. Some balance issues remain. Although the developer has tweaked some of the random chances, the relative difficulties of the various quests remain uneven. The room service area is particularly bad, largely because there is only one elevator and so deliveries get held up. However, this doesn't detract from the game's essential fun. Only one mystery remains: why do all the guests leave the hotel before nightfall? Maybe Sequijor really is a creepy place.

    • Favorite Furnishings: Radio, Mirror, Microwave, Sofa, Ironing Board, Curtains.

    • A Hipster will only enter a building that has received at least 12 Zero Star Ratings. To lower your Approval Rating, click all of the hotel rooms and select "Restrict". This will block all non-priority customers from entering the room.

    • Make sure before you restrict your rooms that you have enough money saved to stay out of debt. If you go into negative $ amount, the IRS will take away items out of every hotel room.

    • You will also need to ensure that the receptionist does not have any priority guests set to any of the rooms. Simply set the "Priority Room" for each guest to "ANY."

    • It is also a good idea to wait until this time to attempt the Serial Killer trophy, as killing a guest will lower your Approval Rating by -1 each time a customer dies.

Family

Members & Stats

  • You can have up to 10 family members under your employment.

  • Some family members can only be gained by earning certain Goals.

  • You can check how much a family member costs in wages by checking the Family tab in the Info page.

  • Each member has specialties and weaknesses in each of the three following stats.

    1. Charisma - Increases Receptionist service quality, Marketer's filter points, and Server's service quality.

    2. Speed - Increases Receptionist's customer check-in speed, Cleaner and Server movement speed, Cleaner's mopping speed.

    3. Industry - Increases Cleaner's reaction time, Marketer's filter points, and Server's service quality and rest period.

  • Try to allocate Family Members to jobs that they would perform the best at, depending on their stats.

Jobs

  1. Maintenance - Click the Maintenance Room to see who is currently employed there.

    • Click the "Assign a Family Member" box to select a person to work there.

    • The Maintenance team is responsible for cleaning up all the messes left by hotel guests.

    • Choose your priority floor for each worker depending on their Speed stat; slower workers should work lower floors and faster workers should be assigned to higher floors to handle the messes most efficiently.

    • It is important that your rooms stay nice and neat, because guests who enter a messy room will be disgusted and will give your hotel a lower rating.

  2. Service - Click the Service Room to see who is currently employed there.

    • Click the "Assign a Family Member" box to select a person to work there.

    • The Service team is responsible for delivering room service to the hotel guests.

    • Select the priority room for each worker depending on their Speed stat; slower works should be assigned to less important rooms or rooms on lower floors and faster workers should be assigned to high-priority rooms or rooms on higher floors.

    • If it takes too long for room service to reach a hotel guest, they will cancel their order and ultimately give a lower rating.

  3. The Lobby is one of the most important areas in the building.

    • You can click the Receptionist window to change the person currently employed as Receptionist.

    • The receptionist is responsible for allocating all guests to priority floors and rooms.

    • Organize the amenities and furnished rooms on each floor to make prioritizing guests much easier. If you can consistently send guests to their favorite rooms, they will enjoy their stay and rate you much higher - the Lobby is an irreplaceable asset to managing those guests.

    • Click the button under "Priority Floor" to cycle through all available floors, then click the button under "Priority Room" to select the type of room you want to assign that guest to.

  4. The Marketing tab contains all your advertising information, your marketer employees, filter points, and customer rate.

    • Marketers are employees that allow you to activate Promotions and assign Filter Points. Choose workers with high Charisma and Industry stats for a higher amount of Filter Points to spend on customers.

    • Filter Points are points that you can spend on specific customers to increase the chance that they will visit your hotel. They are a great asset when you have a goal that requires you to book a certain type of guest. You can spend up to 5 filter points on each guest.

    • The Customers section gives a rough figure of how many guests you can expect to visit the hotel. Many factors can increase or decrease the Customer rate including Seasons, Promotions, Approval Rating, Word of Mouth, and other Miscellaneous effects.

    • Promotions are advertising campaigns that can significantly increase the amount of guests who visit your hotel. The more expensive promotions will yield greater reward, so don't let a promotion expire!

      1. Flyers - Cost $100. Increases daily customers by 1-3 depending on the season.

      2. Print Ads - Cost $250. Increases daily customers by 1-6 depending on the season.

      3. Online Ads - Cost $500. Increases daily customers by 1-8 depending on the season.

  6. Veteran - Play for 100 Days.

  7. Wealthy - Earn $50,000.

  8. Serial Killer - Kill 15 Customers.

    • To earn this achievement, wait for a customer to enter a Room or Amenity, then remove the building with the Demolish tool.

    • The best way to do this is to designate one room as the "trap room". After the guest enters, demolish the room, then replace it right away with another inexpensive room such as an Alipin room.

    • Go to the Lobby tab to set the Priority Floor and Room to the trap room, which will direct more customers into it.

    • You will lose 1 point in your Approval Rating each time you kill a customer, so a good time to use this strategy is when you are also trying to get Hipsters into the hotel.

Building

  • Build as many rooms as possible to accommodate your guests.

  • More expensive rooms can contain more furnishings, and guests will enjoy their stay and give higher ratings if they are placed in rooms that contain their favorite items. Conversely, guests will dislike rooms that are missing their favorite furnishings, which will lower their overall rating.

  • Try to keep your building organized by floor to make prioritizing rooms easier.

    Siquijor is in fact a creepy place. I'm trying to cook up a reason to go there, but I'm afraid no one would come with me...

    I'm excited to try this game, just can't right now. I wish more game developers would get into their own cultural elements, it's not all elves and mushrooms.

    How do I get those elusive hipsters into my Inn? I reached all other achievements, had 5 stars, a 100% satisfaction rating, heaps of cash, and more experience than I could ever use. But not a single hipster had entered my humble Inn. Sigh.

    Hipsters:

    They go to places no one likes, so you have to get 10 zero star ratings for them to start showing up. Easy way is to restrict all of the rooms; everyone gets fed up at the receptionist desk.

    To attract hipsters you need to:

    target your marketing towards them. You can use filter points to increase the probability they will visit

    To attract Hipsters for real

    you need a -10 approval rating. so use the above method of restricting all rooms, limiting customers to only the basic rooms, and closing all shops so you dont lose too much money each day. after you get pretty negative with your approval rating, hipsters will start to appear. then just use your filter points to attract more of them.

    The method I detailed also seems to work. It only took 3/4 turns once I realised. And that's "for real" too :)

    Gen,

    Your method is great for getting more hipsters into the hotel, but the first hipster won't enter until you've received at least 12 Zero Star Ratings. So technically, you're both "for real" ;)

    Lim Li Hui,

    Pay attention to feedback from your guests (especially Upper Class guests) to find their likes/dislikes which will affect their overall rating.

    Start out by checking their favorite furnishings and amenities. Guests will like their rooms better if they're surrounded by their favorite items, but they will dislike a room if it is missing an item they want.

    Next, build rooms with as many available furnishings as possible. Try to organize the rooms on each floor by the items you buy for it, which will make the next step a little easier.

    Click the reception desk to view the Lobby tab. Set the "Priority Floor" and "Priority Room" for each guest so that the receptionist will know to send specific people to the type of room you designed for them.

    Also, don't forget to upgrade your amenities! The higher you upgrade an amenities building, the more your guests will enjoy their stay when they visit those locations. Happy guests means more money and better ratings, which brings in even more visitors!

    It's also important that you keep your hotel nice and clean. Have all of your family members assigned to work. If things are messy or it takes a long time for room service to reach a customer's room, they will get angry and lower their rating.

    If you're still having a hard time, try using the upgrades to your advantage. Click the Upgrades tab, then put points in the "Aesthetics" tree. If you earn the Potpourri upgrade, all customers will give you a slightly higher rating.

    Last but not least, always pay attention to marketing. Don't let your ad promotions run out! TV ads especially are a great way to attract guests (and their moola) to your hotel.

    Hope that helps a little :)

    To kill 15 customers:

    You have to destroy ("bomb") a room while it is physically occupied with a guest. Rooms that are bombed but the guest is somewhere else (like at an amenity) don't seem to count towards that score, and you simply receive 0 stars for that person at the end of the day.

    You'll know if you've killed someone for sure if when you bomb the room, there's a scream and a little soul appears briefly before evaporating.

    The game play is nice but it seems to continually drop my progress. I have tried to manually save and using the automatic saves, both when I reloaded took me back several half stars and achievements.

      • Favorite Furnishings: Radio, Mirror, Microwave, Sofa, Ironing Board, Curtains.

      • A Hipster will only enter a building that has received at least 12 Zero Star Ratings. To lower your Approval Rating, click all of the hotel rooms and select "Restrict". This will block all non-priority customers from entering the room.

      • Make sure before you restrict your rooms that you have enough money saved to stay out of debt. If you go into negative $ amount, the IRS will take away items out of every hotel room.

      • You will also need to ensure that the receptionist does not have any priority guests set to any of the rooms. Simply set the "Priority Room" for each guest to "ANY."

      • It is also a good idea to wait until this time to attempt the Serial Killer trophy, as killing a guest will lower your Approval Rating by -1 each time a customer dies.

    Family

    Members & Stats

    • You can have up to 10 family members under your employment.

    • Some family members can only be gained by earning certain Goals.

    • You can check how much a family member costs in wages by checking the Family tab in the Info page.

    • Each member has specialties and weaknesses in each of the three following stats.

      1. Charisma - Increases Receptionist service quality, Marketer's filter points, and Server's service quality.

      2. Speed - Increases Receptionist's customer check-in speed, Cleaner and Server movement speed, Cleaner's mopping speed.

      3. Industry - Increases Cleaner's reaction time, Marketer's filter points, and Server's service quality and rest period.

    • Try to allocate Family Members to jobs that they would perform the best at, depending on their stats.

    Jobs

    1. Maintenance - Click the Maintenance Room to see who is currently employed there.

      • Click the "Assign a Family Member" box to select a person to work there.

      • The Maintenance team is responsible for cleaning up all the messes left by hotel guests.

      • Choose your priority floor for each worker depending on their Speed stat; slower workers should work lower floors and faster workers should be assigned to higher floors to handle the messes most efficiently.

      • It is important that your rooms stay nice and neat, because guests who enter a messy room will be disgusted and will give your hotel a lower rating.

    2. Service - Click the Service Room to see who is currently employed there.

      • Click the "Assign a Family Member" box to select a person to work there.

      • The Service team is responsible for delivering room service to the hotel guests.

      • Select the priority room for each worker depending on their Speed stat; slower works should be assigned to less important rooms or rooms on lower floors and faster workers should be assigned to high-priority rooms or rooms on higher floors.

      • If it takes too long for room service to reach a hotel guest, they will cancel their order and ultimately give a lower rating.

    3. The Lobby is one of the most important areas in the building.

      • You can click the Receptionist window to change the person currently employed as Receptionist.

      • The receptionist is responsible for allocating all guests to priority floors and rooms.

      • Organize the amenities and furnished rooms on each floor to make prioritizing guests much easier. If you can consistently send guests to their favorite rooms, they will enjoy their stay and rate you much higher - the Lobby is an irreplaceable asset to managing those guests.

      • Click the button under "Priority Floor" to cycle through all available floors, then click the button under "Priority Room" to select the type of room you want to assign that guest to.

    4. The Marketing tab contains all your advertising information, your marketer employees, filter points, and customer rate.

      • Marketers are employees that allow you to activate Promotions and assign Filter Points. Choose workers with high Charisma and Industry stats for a higher amount of Filter Points to spend on customers.

      • Filter Points are points that you can spend on specific customers to increase the chance that they will visit your hotel. They are a great asset when you have a goal that requires you to book a certain type of guest. You can spend up to 5 filter points on each guest.

      • The Customers section gives a rough figure of how many guests you can expect to visit the hotel. Many factors can increase or decrease the Customer rate including Seasons, Promotions, Approval Rating, Word of Mouth, and other Miscellaneous effects.

      • Promotions are advertising campaigns that can significantly increase the amount of guests who visit your hotel. The more expensive promotions will yield greater reward, so don't let a promotion expire!

        1. Flyers - Cost $100. Increases daily customers by 1-3 depending on the season.

        2. Print Ads - Cost $250. Increases daily customers by 1-6 depending on the season.

        3. Online Ads - Cost $500. Increases daily customers by 1-8 depending on the season.

        4. T.V. Ads - Cost $1,000. Increases daily customers by 1-12 depending on the season.

    6. Veteran - Play for 100 Days.

    7. Wealthy - Earn $50,000.

    8. Serial Killer - Kill 15 Customers.

      • To earn this achievement, wait for a customer to enter a Room or Amenity, then remove the building with the Demolish tool.

      • The best way to do this is to designate one room as the "trap room". After the guest enters, demolish the room, then replace it right away with another inexpensive room such as an Alipin room.

      • Go to the Lobby tab to set the Priority Floor and Room to the trap room, which will direct more customers into it.

      • You will lose 1 point in your Approval Rating each time you kill a customer, so a good time to use this strategy is when you are also trying to get Hipsters into the hotel.

    Building

    • Build as many rooms as possible to accommodate your guests.

    • More expensive rooms can contain more furnishings, and guests will enjoy their stay and give higher ratings if they are placed in rooms that contain their favorite items. Conversely, guests will dislike rooms that are missing their favorite furnishings, which will lower their overall rating.

    • Try to keep your building organized by floor to make prioritizing rooms easier.

    • Some events, such as being featured in a game or TV show, can significantly increase the number of future customers or give additional benefits.

    • Other events, like a nearby murder or kidnapping, will lower the amount of people willing to travel to your hotel.

    Is this one of the Department of Tourism's ways to get more tourists??O_O

    Nevertheless, this game is adorable. It makes me rather proud to be a Filipino.

    If you aren't a native/don't speak the main language of the Philippines like I do, you might not understand some things. There are a lot of things I guess only a Filipino can really understand. /shrug

    "emphatically set in a real place: Sequijor, Philippines."
    It's Siquijor, not Sequijor :)

    I saved my game yesterday but for some reason it isn't there today...I didn't have an account on here yesterday, so is that why it wasn't saved? Before I didn't have an account either but my games were all saved...I'm using the same laptop as well.

    I got tired of pulling up the information for every customer over and over again while I was making and furnishing rooms, so here's a chart I made of the customers' preferences:

    To kill costumers, you need to make sure that the customer is in their room and then demolish the room. I think it waste money buuuuut... you need the award to feel like you finished the game! LOL

    I thought this was a cute game, but I found some interesting bugs--

    *While it looks like there are 3 game save slots, when I tried to create a second save it overwrote my first save.
    *If you delete all your rooms for a few days before you get redneck customers, you won't get redneck customers. I was doing this..

    ... to get hipster's early--doing this after getting rednecks worked out great--you're hotel costs are low, and you have ready cash.

    Some advice to people who are having a problem at Juana: don't use marketing for a few days. If you have fewer customers, your room service will reach them faster.

    I'm stuck because my game won't let me reach my second half star. I don't know why but it never registers when I put in a new amenity. It's always stuck on: "Upgrade Amenities 4 times. 0/4" It's sooo annoying anyone got any tips??

    Thanks for making the chart. But for some reason, the 'Likes' for my customers seem to be different than the ones listed in your chart.
    For eg. The Celebrites, Socailites and Pensioners listed in my game's Info all like 'Mirrors' in their rooms.

    Is it different for all games, I wonder? @_@

    Lots of people get a very very bad inn after finishing the hipster quest the only way of keeping your inn good after this [ well atleast the easy way to do so ] Is to do the hipster quest last .

    People might get confused when they try to get the ' kill 15 customers' achievement to do so you need to bulldoze a room a customer is in as if the bedroom .
