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.”

About Tofu Tengo

A rule-bending sports game made during a 24 hours long Hackathon. This playable prototype is based on the street version of football tennis otherwise known as tengo. The goal is to score points by hitting the ball and making it bounce twice in the opponent’s area. Players are allowed to kick other player characters as well. Simply walking into a ball juggles it.
