This is a great game that brings up done great points and facts about the hiring process. Both sides are the exact same and the only difference is how the interviewer views both of them. To the people notching because this game "pushes an agenda" so does Dumb Ways To Die. This game gives facts and information on the very real reality women & men face (docked points for jewellery) in the job search. Good game 10/10
I really enjoyed this game, thank you for making it. It was definitely thought provoking. I enjoyed it all but I really appreciated the facts thrown in. It's simplistic but very interesting and really well done. My only complaint would be that I replayed it upwards of 20 times in order to see what choices affected what and in those different combinations I could never get the woman hired. I'm fairly sure that's by design in order to drive the point home but if you ever decide to make any updates to this I think that would be a very neat thing to see. But even so I must say once again, I enjoyed it a lot!
Pros: Nice art style, funny at some points and the ending was sad but sweet. Cons: The buttons were small and hard touch and this game was made with a clear message/agenda in mind. I don't mind that too much but it feels like it might have limited the potential of the narrative.
Not very accurate to any hiring regime that ive had to follow in the places ive worked. Generally decisions are made entirely on the personality, what their work ethic looks like, hygiene, confidence (not arrogance, generally see more arrogant males than females as well) and qualifications. Sometimes ive hired people with less qualifications because they were more presentable, confident, and eager to learn and earn the qualifications than that of an arrogant person who has them. That aside however, great graphics and simple design make it easy to follow and engaging at the same time. 3/5 only due to accuracy in hiring process, (at least innacurate from my standards here)
Multiple spelling errors throughout the game. Boring gameplay which obviously pushes a political agenda. Statistics provided are pointless as none of them speak to why the gap exists. Despite all the stats provided there is no actual evidence that any malpractice resembling depicted in the game actually takes place.
Interesting but not enough to go through more than a couple of times. I understand this was developed for a wide range of countries, but some of the interview questions are not legal in the U.S. For example, an interviewee can not be asked about their marital status. This makes for some of the responses difficult.
