A help-desk for wearable emotion-manipulators. Fiction through bureaucracy., May 22, 2018
But instead of normal IT, you're troubleshooting a device that creates impulses in others.
As you progress, your performance is evaluated, and others might respond to you. The story slowly splays out.
It's an odd story, too. Like Morayati's other works regarding technological dystopias (Laid Off from the Synesthesia Factory, Take), the game explores uncomfortable parts of the human condition.
The game takes real-life issues (like the below-minimum-wage oppression of gig jobs like Mechanical Turk, having to buy cheap knock-offs of products that can harm you, workplace harassment, etc.) which people have gradually become numb too and puts them in a startling new light by applying them to new situations.
If you liked this work, I strongly recommend the two other games I mentioned earlier.
