UNEMPLOYMENT QUEST! A completely non-epic role playing game! Our protagonist has found that with school over, the oppressive challenge of joblessness is bearing down and crushing all joy in their life! But will you give up? HOPEFULLY NOT! Equip your resume and DO BATTLE with your doubts and fears! Show that you have what it takes to survive in the face of UNCERTAIN FUTURE! This game is not so much a traditional RPG as much as it is an allegory for personal experiences. It is in no way an epic quest as much as it is an exploration of experiences through the tropes and cliches of an RPG.

I'm pleased to announce that Unemployment Quest is now available on Desura!


This is a game based primarily on personal experiences during a long stretch of joblessness, but told through the trappings of retro-RPGs. I hope that everyone enjoys this reality-grounded, personal take on the
RPG Maker style of game!

Will you be sending out Desura keys to the Kickstarter backers?

How do we use the key to download/install the game (without paying the $4.99 in checkout)?

Cool! Nice to see UQ getting around! You hit Greenlight yet? As for Kickstarters getting keys, will there be a mass emailing or need we contact you directly?

Mass emailing! As for Greenlight; I don't feel like I have the energy for another crowdsourcing-type campaign - as rewarding as Kickstarter was, it also took a lot out of me!

Ha the title makes it seem fun, though I wonder what the story actually lets us do - downloading the demo via the main website :D

This game doesn't have the best graphics, nor is it the most intense story ever. I loved it though just because it's unique. I'm tired of games being all the same with people just using what's already out there and just putting an extra goblin in it.
