Cubicle Quest is a game about how life can suck. Dead end jobs, repetitive obligations, irritating coworkers... Cubicle Quest takes all of those things and turns them into enemies you can fight in an old-school RPG.
Adventuring in Cubicle Quest doesn't earn you levels and gold to fight some great ancient evil. Every quest has an impact on your character's life, whether it's getting a promotion at work, finding new friends, or figuring out what you want to do in life. Gain allies and personal strength until you take on the forces keeping you in your cubicle!
20-25 hours of gameplay, including post-game challenges and secret ending. Permanent choices and time-based challenges add replay value.
Monsters don't drop gold. All your cash comes from the complex financial system, including your regular job, side gigs, and potentially starting your own business.
In addition to destroying your credit card and college debt, you can invest your money in savings accounts and stocks.
Instead of elements like fire and ice, you fight enemies with work or interpersonal skills for intuitive strategy. The enemies will be hitting you with unique elements too, many of them not comparable to normal RPG strategies.
Nine party members, each useful for supporting you in different challenges.
Multiple choices for marriage, each providing unique elements to the second half of the game. Or stay single, if you find the right quest.
I've been playing this game for about three hours now. OK the combat is pretty standard RPG, Pokemon-esque fare but I found the actual content of the story and the way it's presented very entertaining. Who doesn't love defeating 'Preventable Death'? In this day and age, only in this game can you pay off your student loan. I found all too many parallels to my own life in this game. At least somewhere, I can feel like I am progressing in my career with some hope of owning my own home. I've genuinely found it far too satisfying watching the numbers of my character's debt decrease. So yeah, I gave it five stars for making me believe there's a world where I can own s**t.
Cubicle Quest gets by on its amusing concept of fighting against and with real life things. You start off with Castle Sanity being attacked by the debt alliance after they conquered the nearby Free Time Mountain, cut off by the Mom 'n' Pop Kingdom it is your job to fight the Debt Alliance while seeking promotions, and maybe finding some roommates along the way to join you. Your characters will be equipped with accessories such as a resume and battle with skills like Self Esteem boosts. You can use items like soda, some will have effects such as increase MP while decreasing HP. The game's theme is what is amusing but it is made using default RPG maker textures, it only runs in a small window, it can be difficult to find where you need to go, and, unless you get the game when it is on sale, the price is too high. A good theme but not enough effort put behind it.
