In the game of life, do you ever really win?

"Sometimes You Just Can't Win" is a "game" where you manage an employee as he works in an office. The employee faces different and possibly difficult working situations, and you can help him by buying gifts and items to affect his mood, motivating them through a project.

Featuring realistic 8-bit pixel "Designer Artstyle", authentic Chiptune/Synthesized music (noise), and so many in-jokes that will not be obvious to most people, this inspired by real life event "game" will evoke gritty emotions (mostly rage) out of all players.

Find out more about this game and the story behind it here:

Free additional stages and minigames will be arriving in the coming weeks.

This App Just Keeps Blowing Me Away

This is my second review a made one a while back and i think thi game just keeps getting better and better . I would like to see more apps from you because this one is fantastic . I like the mini games and how challenging and balanced this game is when it comes to motivating him or "yourself" . Keeps up the good work!

It's O.K

Let's be honest not every app can be perfect, and it's true that some can have interesting qualities. I recommend this for people who can see that.
