Post news Report content RSS feed On Conveying An Atmosphere Of Despair

Hello, ModDB readers, viewers, and listeners (if you're a blind videogamer having this read to you). Impromptu Games inquires of you: Are our offices dismal enough?

Posted by on

For Velociraptor Job Interview Simulator Pro's first set of offices, we're trying to convey the feeling of working a soul-destroyingly low-level office job. These offices (and related areas) are actually subterranean, and we're trying to make them as depressing as possible. Compare these screenshots to those in older posts. Is it more depressing? Is it depressing enough? We need your input!

Is that office lit by only one fluorescent fixture, or are more hiding out of view? If so, it should be even moodier!

Paint unhappy smiley faces on the cardboard boxes.

In seriousness though, does look pretty depressing, it could use huge stacks of books and paperwork on the desks.

I often find small personal items meant to cheer up a work place to be the most depressing features of all - please add motivational posters, pictures of people with their pets, bobble heads, and cartoon bendy toys in a vain attempt to denote individuality that actually merely reinforces the sad uniformity of the corporate cubicle.

A few cracks in the walls, perhaps some water dripping from the ceiling, and I believe you'll have it.

Could be a bit more dark, I suppose. And grim. Grimly dark. Or darkly grim.

Not quite as depressing as it could be.
I think it's because those terrible offices have either terribly dark yellowy lights that cause you to squint at everything and destroy your eyes within a couple of months OR a million watt white halogen lights that destroy your eyes within a couple of months.
But then your mod wouldn't look so damn sweet anymore
