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.

why is so hard to make greg hate me.

why.

How do you beat Greta,Angelo and Greg?It's kinda hard.

for Greta you need to be lazy and unprofessional as heck, for Angelo you need to be very professional, and for Greg you need to be a violence loving psychopath

(+2)

I liked playing the game, it was interesting to find out what each of the people like and dislike. I only got the chill dude right the first time around and Greg was even too hard for me in the second round. They are all pretty unique and cool and the random Q&A's make it super re-playable. Love the little details in the offices as well, especially the little penguin in the moon. Makes me go "noot noot" every time. (Hehehehehe.)

(+1)

This game is COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE, like I try to choose the worst answers and... I got the job somehow, this job is impossible not to get...

While it's intentionally difficult and possibly a little unfair, it's not impossible. 😅Hope you enjoyed it all the same!

Thank you for playing! Has been fun watching - the music is made by me for the game by the way, no copyright issues ^^

Also, I have no clue why Greta liked you after all that haha

Thanks for sharing! Great editing, very entertaining. ^^

I've come back, it's me! The guy who requested to add a potato in the game!

amazing

(-11)

this game also sucks ass

(+6)

but it has a potato

(-1)

Guess I never saw the solanum tuberosum

(+5)

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 

(+6)

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!

(+4)

Greg T posing is the laughing stock of my life

bruh

(+8)

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...
