About Counties Work

In Counties Work, students learn about local government by playing a county official responding to citizen requests. They must keep citizens happy and manage county resources responsibly. Are citizens making sensible requests? Which department of local government has the solution? Do taxes need to be raised or lowered to keep a balanced budget? How will citizens react—and what’s the best action when crisis strikes? Challenges come from all directions in this fast-paced game!

About Corporate Lady: Modern Worker 7/10ths: Lord of the Files

Corporate Lady is a match-3 game with a corporate office theme. It started as social commentary on income and sexual inequality, and the banality and repetitive nature of modern office work, and was originally going to be titled Carla Duty (but no one wanted to tangle with EA’s lawyers). It has been described by beta testers as “a bad acid trip at Dunder Mifflin” and “probably too socialist for the average American.”
