Oh no!

Your recruiter has accidentally set up an interview with some crazy people at a company called The Forum! 

Your task is simple, just go through the motions and whatever you do, DON'T get the job. But as it turns out, that's a bit harder than you might've originally thought.

This game was made in 3 days for the Wowie 3.0 game jam, we hope you enjoy it! And if you wanna know more about The Forum, check out another game we're working on; Glitcheon!

This game has been updated

To play the original game jam version, made for Wowie Jam 3.0, download the jam version build. The Webgl version has been updated with fixes, new content and improved balancing.

Played this game first few months ago and finished it, replaying now again and I saw new phrases and new dialogues, which is really cool!! I love all the "traps", like the managers being different, adds spice to the gameplay. Ost and sfx are really cool, and the graphics with out fit perfectly, got media molecule vibes 

(+3)

The Greg guy is the hardest. No matter what I do, he will still want me to be his rotten campaign manager. I even told him I was gonna ruin his campaign.

(+1)
yeah i have that same problem.
(+3)
I GOT ALL 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(+1)

I got all three as well and it only took a few more turns. That Greg guy likes everything you say. Smh.

(+1)

I didn't know not getting a job would be difficult. If only this was real life. Nonetheless, Awesome game. Had fun at the lil jokes. Thank you for making this :)

(+2)

I may as well make another video! Great game!

(+1)

Thanks for playing! Been a fun watch

(+2)

“are you planning to slug?”

Yes

(+3)

I'll be keeping this in mind for my next interview...

Truly a joy to see the game from your perspective! Thanks for sharing.

(+1)

My pleasure! ;{D

Greg is impossible

(+2)

If you want to get Greg to dislike you, be serious but threatening and concerning. When you can, make yourself out to be overqualified. Never give him any compliments. Act like you don't know him / like he's nothing special. Don't tell friendly harmless jokes.

(+1)

thank you!

(+3)

Greg T posing is the laughing stock of my life

(+2)

Amogos

(+1)

bruh

(+5)

stage 1, be unprofessional

stage 2, be boring and overconfident

stage 3, be stand uppish and rebellious

(+1)

That's a pretty nice & concise guider right there!

what are the endings in the game and how do i get them?

Hi, you can get a good and a bad ending and two in between, depending on how many interviewers end up liking you. The endings are not super different from each other though.

(+2)

How do you even beat Greg?

Bully him. Talk bad on his campaign and seem a little boring. 

(+1)

You have greatly helped me. I send many thanks to you. Thank you

(+1)

It gets easier when you learn about the game. That said, I liked it

(+1)

Well guess its time to get a new recruiter...

(+1)

SUS

(+1)

Required

(+2)

Im going to win this time!

(+6)

I'm just going to put this here without any context

111100111 011101 10010110

AH IT BURNS MY EYEBALL'S EYEBALLS

��

(+1)


did it but im certain that mr martini is impossible to make mad

(1 edit) (+1)

Just be on the job and actually sound like a good employe. He wont want to hang with you


edit: the want want is gone.

Thanks, this is pretty much spot on

you have to NOT get the job

Dude you have to try to get the job on mr martini to not get the job.

(+2)

must be a god at being boring i gues

indeed i am

(+1)

Omg what is this game 😭

(+3)

Getting rejected has never been so hard lol! 

And still you managed it somehow :D Thanks for playing!

(+2)

I really enjoyed this game! Such a hilarious premise and with so many directions to go! I'm going to have to livestream this, where I go in a different direction! Awesome job on this!
(+1)

Oh, I'd love to see that livestream! They all loved you haha. Though I think you got pretty close with Greg not liking you which is really hard.

Little tip: say boring and serious stuff to Angelo, he hates that ;)

(+1)

Thanks for the tip! And wooo, glad I at least got close with Greg, bwahaha! I'll definitely share when I do the livestream version. 😊

(+1)

I mean... who wouldn't want to get close with Greg 😍

Looking forward to the stream!

How many endings are there, so far i got

*Rejected

*Call security

*Accepted

That’s the main stuff for endings (except maybe one for when everyone likes you), but each interviewer has a few different statements before the next interviews comes in depending on how you do with them specifically.

(+1)

There's no way the recruiter didn't know about the Forum beforehand, my theory is that hes a member.

ill get 2 abhorrently angry faces and one like barley a smirk and still lose, damn

(+3)

This game was difficult, but it was still really fun!

Tip for people struggling: Greta is professional, Angelo likes fun, Greg likes people who suck up to him.

(+2)

Super hilarious game! Gave me some good tips to get out of a job interview lol! Hope you enjoy the video! 

Looks great! We've actually added a bunch of content since this video was recorded too, maybe you want to go for a round two! The game play has been cut to be a little faster, but also with no repeated questions. :)

(+2)

i played your game and it was really fun. I really liked the art style and it was very funny. It would help alot if you could check out my youtube channel and possibly subscribe! Thank you!

Thanks for playing! Glad you liked our game - it was fun watching ^^

any tips on how to get past greg? he really likes me

Answers that seem arrogant, insulting, offensive etc. usually work well with Greta and Greg.

(+1)

but how do i get the job but great game 100/100

pick the most silly awnsers for greta  pick the most boring awnsers for angelo and pick insulting awnsers for greg

(+2)

Great Game! Really enjoyed it!
(+1)

Great video! Thanks for playing :)

(+1)

Appreciate that! :)

(+2)

Will you be my campaign manager??

(+1)

I would love to 🥺🤣

lol

(+2)

managed to get all of them to reject me! they even called security!

Heeey, great job! Perseverance is key. How many tries did it take?

how

(+5)

2nd try. Tip for those struggling: The decorations on the walls tell you a little bit about the interviewer's personality.

(+4)

Damn it, I got the job.

(+2)

cool project

(+3)

i finally won 3rd try, greg just loves me too much-

(+2)

I loved the game! Definitely vibed with the second boss. Greg scares me though. 
(+2)

This is by far my favorite video of Don't Get The Job!

(+1)

Means a lot!

ummmmmmmmm?
