i quit

Your job change has failed!!

Incredible. Simply put. I played this as the first game in a 3 Scary Games video, and it was fantastic. I'm never not going to think about Damp Poo. Watch the video below!

I am unable to delete this game. My computer keeps glitching. I think it might just be me. Idk .

For a game that was made in a week, not too shabby. I do wish the horror was a tad bit better, i can definitely respect Carl the IT guy. Best part of the game honestly.

I made a video on your game if you'd like to give it a watch :)

holy crap. Wtf man?! Hahahah I loved it 


second game 


3 Scary Games #5

I love it!!!!

*Game Starts 5:24*

It is different, strange at the same time but interesting to play. The beginning reminded me of the backrooms.

Really good short horror game! Pretty funny as well lol. I did get frozen in fear when that clown popped up. Keep up the good work! (gameplay starts at 18:51)

I had to get a job at Shampoo Inc. But fate led me to the wrong place ((( The game has a nice visual and a realistic office worker simulator - 10/10.

I will be glad to subscribe to the channel (✿◠‿◠)

Great Job! I actually got a good laugh at the characters/ name. Only issue was the mouse sensitivity was super high. The game was the first one in the video :)

Had fun and had a laugh for a game made in a week that was only 10 min long that's pretty good for me. Thanks for making it and sharing it. Check out my playthrough here

I hate to be that type of guy, but can you please compile the game for Linux and MacOS. Thanks!

Hey bug report went in elevator before the guy stopped talking and got stuck. Also, door is slightly out of the frame in the work station area so you can see the dead body. Carl runs in place at the door as well. Lastly the characters are blue like smurfs for me.

This was cool. I liked the basic kind of style going into it. it was just a fun spooky game

I putting in my my one hour notice. Good game bad job 10/10

I had a lot of fun playing.
Thank you for the production <3

Hey Ajackster, thank you for making this game, sadly it wasn´t as scary as it was hilarious to me, the voice acting did a pretty funny job and I was having a blast playing it. Gush Damyum Carl, he´s a nice joke

What the heck carl!! Lol i loved the game the ending got me pretty good lol

Fun game for a quick scare, pretty sure carl bugged a bit at the end though haha

Good Game. Pretty sure I called it though.

this game was definitely different and interesting. Very very random with the clown and I’m 99 percent sure I found a bug with the tech dude at the end of the game. The game wasn’t really scary at all and I’m sort of disappointed.

Hope I get the job! ;{D

The start of the game was hilarious and the connection between Carl and the receptionist was subtle yet great once you realise the similarities! The parts where everyone were screaming was pretty spooky as well! I might have glitched out Carl towards the end though and I just realised as I was typing this that the other receptionist could have been the one in the stretcher, man that was a good indicator at the start!
