The #HESHETHEY project by yanni

Do you know enough about gender discrimination? This game puts you in the shoes (heels, actually) of an oppressed office lady struggling to rise in position. (or, on a smaller scale, unblock her boss's printer)

This game is workable as a demo, but there isn't really enough to call this a full game. I found it difficult to figure out what to do and navigation was tricky as it wasn't always made clear what travel was possible. Also, some parts of the scenery remain static even after the scenery's been altered and interaction is frequently unintuitive. I'll give you a point for the writing, but even then it could stand to be more fleshed out-- it's very interesting as a concept to be able to play as a character so suspicious of the world around her that she takes it personally when people privately communicate to each other and convinces herself that what is (presumably) inconsequential movement is in fact a sexually-motivated wink at her, but you could really do more with it. I'm not sure where you're going with the comically over-the-top womanizing that would get one fired, sued or even jailed in a real workplace. Were you trying to satirize both sides? Whatever the case, I can't in good faith give this any higher a rating; you still have a ways to go, not to mention that making fun of tumblr stereotypes got old a long time ago. I don't mean to discourage you, though. Do find a stronger target to pick on, and keep practicing. Then I'm sure you'll be able to put together a good parody.
