About this Game

Nowadays, due to a turn on working society, Burn-out became a mass phenomenon.
Burn-out is a physical and psychological reaction from chronic occupational stress.
Stress issues at work became an important concern for business companies. It is considered a working risk that companies have to fight.
In Europe, 22% of workers are touched by occupational health and stress problems.
It’s important to let people know about this phenomenon and try to give them the keys to fight this problems, and reduce their pain at work.
Based on this observation, we chose to make a game to inform people about this sickness of our society.

This prototype don’t have a positive ending, we choose to first show, how it can be hard sometimes to deal with a lot of request at work and no resting time for ourselves.
