Now you too can underpay everyone in Office Management 101

By - | Views: 10,462

Like the tycoon and management sims of old, Office Management 101 has entered Early Access and so far it's looking like players are enjoying it.

Making fun of the real corporate world, it's something of a satirical game. While it's business focused it's full of "quirky characters, slapstick humor, and unexpected events in a cheerful and detailed capitalist dystopia". You assume  the role of CEO of a fresh electronics company tasked with hiring employees, designing your office and turning it all into a "ruthless money-making machine".

This reminds me of a friend who worked for a security company. They sold alarm-type devices with software attached. They sold these in a range, three tiers I think from basic to deluxe, you know how it goes. The basic version was in fact the deluxe version with a few functions disabled. When he told me that I realized this was obviously not just his company, it is how things work.

Just how things works.

A certain car was sold in "1.8" (150bhp) and "2.0" (175bph) models. Both are in fact 2.0 litre engines with the same components. The only difference was the price and the software.

Offices are still a thing? :P

I played the demo when it was available and it has potential, there just wasn't enough differentiating things implemented, so it was kind of Gamedev Tycoon lite.

You know, some sort of work from home sim game might not be a bad idea:

Reach your performance target for the day whilst keeping up with the housework, pets and sick kids. Try to manage not only your own sanity and health but also make sure to keep your marriage alive!

* Mini game where you try to keep a straight face during zoom meetings when the flatulence issues of your spouse goes totally out of control.
* Do you sacrifice work hours to go grocery shopping or increase productivity by using your TPS reports as TP and risk getting piles?
* Pre-order bonus includes rare golden ergonomic office chair with +10 lumbar support!

Can I force my office workers to pee into a bottle as a method of reducing break times? That is the ultimate goal. Plus when it comes to pay raises I would like the nominees to fight to the death in a arena cage....
