When you're laid-off, it's sink or swim.

This is an RPG I made in 3 days for Low Effort Game Jam 13. The theme I wanted to focus on is job hunting, since that's what's occupying most of my time (as of this game's release date). It's a bit of therapy for myself, to be honest, so I can start working on my next project with a clear mind.

You're a writer who lost their job during the pandemic of 202X. Find a new job before you run out of money or pass out from exhaustion.

- Depictions of Anxiety and Depression
There are two secret battles in this game that simulate depression and anxiety as RPG battles. The depression is a nearly unwinnable scenario and playing it may cause stress. Please do not play this game if you are in a vulnerable mental state as it does feature rejection and isolation.


Standard RPG Maker MZ controls, including keyboard and mouse support.
ESC - opens menu
Arrow Keys - move car / select choices
Z / ENTER - make a choice
X / SHIFT - cancel / go back

I would love to know if anyone beat the game or how many days you survived before you decided to call it quits. There's no shame in giving up on something that's not working. That's the point of this game. :)
