A Quiet Afternoon 2

PREPARE YOURSELF... TO PROCRASTINATE

Find a comfy chair and get ready to put off those chores you've been meaning to do, because A Quiet Afternoon 2 is here to distract you with twenty-seven speculative Low-Fi tales of harmonious resolutions, idle reminiscences, and hopeful dreams.

Unruly neighbours learn to coexist peacefully...

Family recipes are as valuable as any treasure...

And princesses do not need rescuing.

Spend some time with the bricklayers who refuse to let a robot take their jobs, a woman made of gems who wants to be a bird, and a very brave squirrel. Explore the shop where you can pawn your dreams, tour a house who wants to be haunted, and take in the fairground where dinosaurs come to life.

Comfy and cosy with a touch of the bittersweet, these low-stakes moderate-rewards stories are ready to let you relax.
