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.

My entry for Ludum Dare #37 (Jam)
The theme was 'One Room'.

Enjoy!

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 :)

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.
