Menial Labor: The Videogame

Mister Donut DS
This Japanese boxart for a Mister Donut themed DS game makes me hungry but also raises an important question – when are we going to get Tim Hortons The Videogame? (Or Starbucks for those on the other side of the border.)

I’d also be curious to know if the game allots time to contemplate life. I’m all for kids learning how to make coffee properly, but since I’m given to believe that this release joins a series of career games, wherein the other careers have been nurse, teacher, veterinarian, I can’t help thinking that if those are the jobs your friends have while you’re making donuts all day, you’d want some free time to ponder where you took a wrong turn.


  1. Dunkin’ Donuts would be the equivalent here I believe. Unless Tim Hortons started charging $5 for a coffee. Double double. Now I want a donut.

  3. So, how many donuts are packed with the special edition and how do they keep em fresh?

  4. Dunkin Donuts would be comparable to what Tim Hortons is in Canada.
    This game brings back exhausting memories of working early mornings and late nights.

  5. In fact that donut in the background is a half dipped honey Crueller/Wagon Wheel depending on where you are haha.
