Not Another Weekend is no ordinary adventure game taking place on a deserted island or in a gloomy city; the game takes place in Hotel 404, an exclusive 6-star hotel catering to an upper-class clientele with their rude, arrogant and snobbish behavior. You play protagonist Mike Melkout, a humble bellboy fed up working for the man under terrible conditions. Something must be done, and you have conceived an evil plan to kick out the guests during the weekend. Can it be done? Can you kick everybody out? Your dark plan must be set in motion!
 
Not Another Weekend offers a classic point-and-click interface with an inventory of objects that you collect as you play. Packed with dark humor and hilarious characters you must empty the hotel from its charismatic guests ranging from famous wrestlers, popular movie stars, talentless singers and even the odd horror movie character or two! Rendered in cool pixel-art, those who grew up in the 80s will instantly recognize the famous personalities with their crazy antics. Puzzles must be solved to succeed, and you must be creative and have a cool sense of humor to stay sane. Pop culture references of the era are sprinkled all throughout the game and you will undeniably enjoy the trip down memory lane to empty the building before time runs out.
