You are a 1950s housewife going through your average day of being a homemaker, something that would be average if not for your dual identity of being a superhero.The player, taking on the role of the protagonist Whilma Man, will be able to move about the home as they see fit. They will have a list of chores to complete that will track the players progress throughout the day, but in what order or how quickly a player does these chores is up to them. Spring Cleaning puts the power back into the hands of the homemaker. It takes the trope of the 1950s housewife and spins it on its head, taking the narrative away from the oppressive overtones it used to have but still giving power back to those it was taken from in a fun and exciting way.
