Petty Theft with Marie Kondo

Marie Kondo's finally made it out of the clink, to find herself in a new neighborhood. Will she use her powers to spark joy for good or evil? if you are holding a tool, you can break certain blocks by moving to the left or right of them. if you press the grab key while holding an item you drop the item unless you are also near a grab point, in which case you grab onto the grab point. the idea is to increase joy in all households till they hold a nice party for marie kondo. if you follow around the npcs, they'll talk about stuff they want or stuff they have too much of. it also seems the web player is a little buggy in that the controls stop working when the frame loses focus, so try the executable if that doesn't seem to work
