About the Story

Imagine a world where you sell your labour power for less than the value produced by your labour, and your company profits from this surplus value. Welcome to Dungeons & Deadlines, a card game where you have to balance work and life, success and sanity, career and family to survive the probation period. How long will you last? Will you burn out or fade away?

Created by Synthwave artist Miles Matrix during an extreme bout of depression as a means to a voice, Dungeons & Deadlines is a satirical look at daily work place horror and the meaningless emptiness of capitalism played out via cards. The aim of the game is to survive the probation period of 62 days but at what cost?

- Over 40 Work and Life cards respectively
- A dozen Go To Work Early / Later and Work Overtime / Go Home cards respectively
- 5 different outcomes based on your balance if you survive the probation period
- With an original 5-song chiptune soundtrack by game creator Miles Matrix (available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and many more) including the bonus track "Capitalism Stole My Virginity", a cover of The (International) Noise Conspiracy.

Daily grind as an RPG-can you survive 62 days? I couldn't, January 15, 2020

This game is kind of a blend between micro-text RPGs (like the Twinyjam game 'RPG-ish') and Fallen London (except instead of random cards you get fixed cards with random-ish effects).

It has some actually pretty good 8-bit music and a custom display. You are trying to survive 62 days, keeping your esteem, family, health, and stress at healthy levels.

I liked the conceit, but 62 days is really long. I died around round 39, and had seen a lot of repeated text. Maybe that's the point? Maybe you're meant to die?

I had two different encounters with sexual content, roughly as explicit as a PG-13 comedy in the US.

If you enjoyed Dungeons & Deadlines...
