I don't think I got the correct ending., March 3, 2014
by Hanon Ondricek (United States)

This game is your basic FML office game with some horror thrown in. I played once. (Spoiler - click to show)Wandered around a bit, then died. Did the coffee poison me?

Very well written. I liked where this might have been going, but I think I'm happy with the (Spoiler - click to show)"Failed to quit my Job" resolution to my quest!

Suggestion: (Spoiler - click to show)You should consider actively resigning! Why? (Spoiler - click to show)It's an eye-opener.

Hm, that's possible? (Spoiler - click to show)I tried resigning, but it told me that I wasn't angry/confident enough. So I wandered around trying to become angry -- I messed with the IT guy's drawer, I looked in the fridge to make myself angry that my food was gone -- but that didn't seem to be enough to let me resign. Then I died. What do you have to do in order to be allowed to actually send the letter?

Okay, as near as I can tell, the thing that sets up the death timer is (Spoiler - click to show)eating the fruit. So don't do that.

If you (Spoiler - click to show)make coffee, then check the supervisor's desk, then drink the coffee, then open the fridge, you should be able to send the letter.

Really? (Spoiler - click to show)The fruit killed me? Was there something to clue that?

No, nothing specific.

I just had a bad feeling. (Spoiler - click to show)Something just seemed off to me in general about the whole place and the fruit was the only thing presented as appealing. Just appealing enough for me to want to eat it, but not so appealing that I could be certain it was a trap. This made me think that it must, in fact, be a trap. I have author trust issues.

Also, in my experience, in small satellite offices with no client visits, (Spoiler - click to show)fresh fruit would never be provided by management. You might find a mostly empty box of donuts left over from the morning meeting, if you were really lucky and the guy down the hall who survives entirely on breakroom windfalls was out sick that day. But never fruit; it spoils too quickly, costs too much, you're not worth impressing, and nobody will eat it anyway.

Alternatively, I may just have gotten lucky and hit the (Spoiler - click to show)"you die on your couch" ending close enough to eating the fruit to make an entirely spurious but fortunately accurate association, and all of the above is just the thing our brains do to rationalize decisions that seem logical but are really not based on much. Now I'm not sure.

Thanks very much for the instructions -- with that help, I was able to get through to the end.
