Games that make you rage the perfect amount without actually shutting down the game and never opening it again. I made it a goal to buy every possible thing without skipping any emails. Succeeded, but at the cost of my sanity. Probably one of the best games I've found on here and definitely my favorite typing game by far (yes, I'm one of those freaks who plays enough of that genre to have an ongoing ranking).

Greetings,

The tasks assigned for this week are as follows,.
*falls down the cliff*

Best bullshit job simulator ever. Thanks for the customization. It really gets to me to feel like an idiot as I do in my real job. The feeling is really well recreated.

Typing alone is enough to fill a man's heart.

I just think your game is broken. Correct me if not :)

Edit: Just saw it isn't broken at least the download one. The browser one IDK.

Hi there!

Would you be able to clarify what you think is broken? The game won't launch on mobile as it was designed for desktop.

Thanks!

Hello,

One must imagine one imagining that one imagines imagining imagination. If the image is imagined again then one must imagine without margins. 


Hope this was helpful,

Hi there! Sorry to hear you're having trouble. The game is case sensitive, but let us know if that isn't the issue and we'll try and recreate it. Thanks!

every time i type the first word I get rolled back into a bank

(+1)

Just checking that you're also entering the space key between each word? Let us know if that solves the problem. Thanks!

(+2)

Man! I was so close to reaching the top! I just need to have a longer username! ...right

This game is brilliat, I love it.

It isnt letting me actually type words or gain money? what should I do

(+1)

Hi there! Thanks for playing! Please let us know what it was that you couldn't type, so that we can look into what the issue could be. Perhaps it's worth making sure that you are typing a capital letter - the game is case sensitive. We are also yet to test support for keyboard layouts other than English, if that applies to you this may be what is causing some problems.

Thank you for the game!

It was fun to type absurd corporate letters while my man Sysyphus was pushing that ball. Recreated that Monday feeling perfectly. 

(+2)

does this work on linux?

Hi there! The web version should work on all modern browsers. Simply click the 'Run Game' button to start. Let us know if this works for you.

Thanks!
