A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The Employee is less of a game and more of an interactive diorama about day to day work.

ok cool


Very interesting concept; I really like the visual style and the control scheme. I know it's meant to be more of an art game, but I personally would love to see some sort of puzzle or story elements added, or at least a few easter eggs.


Bleak, but entertaining. I only made it a couple cycles before it glitched out, but I probably wouldn't have last long anyway. Thanks for sharing!

I made a vid, if that's okay: https://youtu.be/aMtM0sORKRU

Thank you! It was very insightful to watch you play :)


Really love the presentation and structure, well done.

Incredibly bleak, but I loved it nonetheless. Great take on the "one room" theme. I've covered it as part of my weekly Indie Freebies piece for Gaming Respawn: http://gamingrespawn.com/indie-game-spotlight/17573/indie-freebies-ludum-dare-37/


Thank you for that review. I agree, It is very bleak. But it's just one narrow view on the subject.
I didn't expect anyone to play the thing longer than maybe four or five cycles, let alone until day 31. You earned my respect for that.


Part of me was tempted to reach 100 days, just to see if the calendar went past 99 :)


It does :D
It should even go far beyond that. But the font will exceed the paper eventually.

ok cool


Does this game go on forever? Nice game btw and i hope you enjoy the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxQ6TiuZNKw

It goes on until you quit. Thanks for the video


Can you link to your LD submission page? I'd love to shoot some rating your way. :)


Thanks for the notice. I added a link in the description.
