About the StoryThe best worker in the office, Bob Newbold, has been tragically run down and only YOU - the company tea boy - has a hope of getting everything shipshape before the Japanese businessmen arrive. Are you up to the challenge?
2nd Place - ADRIFT One Room Comp 2003
A Day At The Office suffers from some of the usual ADRIFT parsing problems, but makes a nice snack-sized game if you're willing to deal with that.

Delron Review Compilation
Set against a time limit
I've done everything I can think of, and I'm unable to find the telephone socket, the pencil or the desk key, and I'm guessing some or all of these are vital to getting the good ending.
Also, a little bit of GTV, as it will accept armchair and comfy armchair, but not chair. And it will accept telephone but not phone. I also noticed one very minor typo.
That said, despite the frustrations I've had in figuring it all out, the author has done very well in getting a lot out of a single room and I very much enjoyed the writing. It's written in a very humourous manner and the style of humour is right up my alley.
3/5, as although I found the gameplay (and the very well hidden items) frustrating, the writing was very enjoyable.
