Disaffected: The Game That Lets You Hate Yourself

It’s not often we get to link to videogames, but we’re happy to direct your attention to ‘Disaffected,’ a sort of inverse to the advergame—games that shill products as their primary or secondary purpose—where players experience what it’s like to be a Kinko’s-like employee.

For we consumers, think of it as an opportunity to empathize with those behind the counter. Or if you’re really looking for a moment of workplace therapy, turn Disaffected on and leave it running unattended while you take a coffee/tea/cigarette/barbiturate break, thereby doubling the amount of responsibility you are shirking (which always makes those breaks that much more delicious).
