From the Author

This is depressed as hell, and a complaint. But whatever -- try it anyways.

Existential Time Loop, May 30, 2010

Or, if you're less of an intellectual, it's an office game where nothing you do matters and it repeats forever. Oh, and the point of the game is fighting the parser. With that said, there's not much hope for this game to please anyone except possibly masochists. Even the score is futile -- zero out of zero points if you "win" (and by "winning" I mean, giving in to the parser).

As far as depressing goes, this is not very depressing, but rather tedious; to really convince us of the depressing nature of the situation, more is required. Aren't most of us familiar with the office life anyways?

This doesn't get close to the satirical fun of SuperMarket Robbery, and it's not even as interesting as Magic Travels. (If you know the latter game, that's how uninteresting this one is).

So, this game is complete, small, and falls short of the mark of the author's other works.
