Inspired by renown tidying expert and bestselling author Marie Kondo, who has sold over 13 million copies of her books worldwide, Spark Joy! is a storybook puzzle game that takes players through the joyful journey of tidying using the KonMari Method™ in the form of solving different puzzles.
- A heartwarming story for everyone
The story follows a young girl troubled by a personal struggle and after meeting Marie Kondo, she is able to face her problems, listen to her inner voice and eventually find what is truly important to her. The story is told through visually-stunning graphics, like reading a picture book, appropriate for all ages.
- The enchanting world
Sparked by joy, the girl embarks on a journey around the world and meets people facing unique worries of their own. With the help of Marie Kondo and cute Mononoke (spirited beings), the girl helps others overcome their own challenges by sharing her happiness with them and helping them find joy within through tidying.
- Alternating puzzles
The game features two alternating types of puzzle games, Yin and Yang. “Yin” puzzles help clear the mind through Zen-like garden puzzles. In “Yang” puzzles, players move colorful cubes to a specified shape while clearing away unnecessary blocks.
- Beautiful soundtrack
The game’s soundtrack is composed of beautiful tracks with upbeat, uplifting music for “Yang” and soothing notes for “Yin”. We recommend playing with headphones.
- Additional story
A side story is told through a young boy’s perspective. Sold separately.

Ratings and Reviews
Maybe too challenging on some levels?
The game is cute and the puzzles are different. Sadly I am stuck on one of them and there is no way to get past it. Other than a picture hint there is no other help in solving it. I guess I will have to wait until someone else solves it and see if they share the solution.
Feels like you’re helping… until you get stuck
I spent a fun hour or two playing this Tidy Up game and really enjoyed it. While you’re not actually cleaning anything; you’re introduced (sort of) to a mysterious character and their cluttered (but very cute) home.
Then you click on a section of clutter, play a little puzzle game, and POOF that section is now clean!
When you’re done with the whole room, you find out who you’ve helped, and in turn help yourself. It’s a pleasant little game. Soothing. And weirdly, it really does make me feel like I’m being helpful- and it might even make me want to tidy up a section of my own house.
Ugh - then came the third home, 2nd or 3rd puzzle. It’s supposed to be an upside down L shape and there is seriously no way to solve it. I’ve tried everything.
Now I’m just frustrated and there are no other hints besides a little picture of the finished puzzle.
Sadly, I’m about ready to tidy up my screen by removing this game and waving $4 goodbye.
Challenging but not addictive
I like this because the puzzles are challenging but because it is not addictive, I can stop and come back to it with fresh eyes and try to solve it. The whole design is fun and strangely relaxing
