About the Story

Jeder will einen anständigen Job - auch du! Das ist so ziemlich deine letzte Chance, denn die Marktlage ist schwierig. Sie suchen einen "Produkttester ohne Gesundheitsrisiko" und deine E-Mail wurde positiv beantwortet. Nun bist du auf dem Weg zum Vorstellungsgespräch.

Doch dieser Weg führt Dich mitten ins mythologischen Griechenland.

Platz 2 beim IF-Grand Prix 2002 (Note: 2,88)

Editorial Reviews

Florian Edlbauers "Archiv DEutschSprachiger TExtadventures"

Auf dem Weg zum Vorstellungsgespräch verirrt sich der Held ins antike Griechenland, wo eine Folge von Rätseln auf ihn wartet. Biederer Abenteuerstoff, sehr solide implementiert, aber in schlampigem Beamtendeutsch geschrieben. Die faden Rätsel haben nichts mit Griechenland zu tun. Immerhin sind sie angenehm leicht.
Noch befriedigend.

Good introduction to IF, December 29, 2008
by kba (berlin)

Your task is simple: Enter the building, take the lift to the 13th floor and make a good impression at the job interview... 13th floor? That doesn't sound right. And it is not.

As the game is really short, it's impossible to explain details of the story without spoiling the fun. Let's just say, it's theme changes from slice of life to greek mythology and back. The conclusion could have been more elaborate, but the idea is clever(Spoiler - click to show), though predictable and a bit "deus ex machina".

A short, linear game, probably good as an introduction to IF and, other than Max' later games Das Felleisen and Das Kopialbuch, not as heavy on the historical background.
