The game has been inspired by experienced of young and educated people who struggle to find a job. By mixing retro role-playing style and real-life challenges, Unemployment Quest brings a unique concept where players get to confront their challenges in a positive and fun way.
The story is not some fantasy based adventure, it is a real-world experience with every day issues that people without a job have to face. There are no monsters, or any other imaginary creatures. The real enemy here will be Isolations, Doubts, Shame and the most worrying one Uncertain Future. The focus is on a young character who just graduated school and is trying to find a paid work.
Unlike most other RPG games, Unemployment Quest aims to turn the negative experience of being jobless into something less terrifying, by creating a fun gameplay that anyone can enjoy. Fighting obstacles such as the “1%”, and emotional despair for some four hours, with the final part being a job interview in a department store, gives a pretty good idea what youngsters have to go through to get a job these days.
Game’s humorous way of presenting the real world issue will turn player’s dull day into something fun.
Indie developer, Charles DeYoe, created a game based on his own experience and what he had to go through after graduating at SUNY-Buffalo. It is not the prettiest title by all means, but the unique concept is worth playing. Successfully funded through Kickstarter back in 2012, Unemployment Quest went for $1,000 and got $10,000 in the end. This is one of the most realistic games we have seen so far, and could be classed as surviving the real life.
