A downloadable game for Windows
"It’s a fun little game that does a great job of building up tension as the time ticks down as well as making you increasingly exasperated at its (deliberately) convoluted automated telephone system."

I'm sorry but I rage quit so hard >.< It's because this game truly does replicate the hell of automated systems. 10/10 purely for that realism.
streamed this a while ago and it was super tense, really enjoyed it
Yo! I have played THREE games of yours so far! No Players Online, MapFriend and now THIS.
Gosh dude, you are amazing in how you present your games. The sound design, the visuals, the tension... all amazing!
Thank you so much! Glad you like them :)
I called the number. 1 (800) 773-7368 aka 1-800-PRESDNT.
OMG!! THEY RESPONDED.
What an amazing little game, the tension during the 10 minutes is carried perfectly and the gameplay mechanics are really well integrated. I love everything about this game :D
Any plans to make a Mac version? or is it possible to play it on Mac using Crossover for instance?
This is such a great small game! By the way, you could pretty easily make the game blind friendly :)
Love this suggestion! It really would be easy to add this as an accessibility feature.
looool, good jo!
Very small game but very fun! Winning the game felt great and the frustration with the phone bot helped build tension.
This game was wild! It reminded me too much of my time at work. All you have to do is change a few words here and there for it to be medical records instead of nukes. RIP
Very interesting AND very stresfull:D
10/10 will recommend
wow that was really fun, nice game!
could you release a build for linux
what even is the verification code for USSR?
you need to find it in the 3rd option of the 3rd menu!
please make a version for mac!!!! :sob:
hey first time I downloaded this it gave it a virus warning. For people who also downloaded it on Windows could you tell me if it is?
also gave me it i just ignore it and said run anyways
This game is fine and will not cause any harm. Windows is just over reactive about programs.
The game is fine. You can check the report from virustotal: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/2de75adf71494c6110af6c970209ff8d854d0c793e2a...
Hold on, I'll transfer your comment.
This was such a cool concept and the execution was great, if you're up for it, I'd love to see an expanded version with more scenarios (unless there already are and I've just missed it)
Really interesting concept perfectly executed.
It has an interesting control scheme.
Really good work!
The most stressful phone menu i have ever experienced! Great job on the unique concept :)
I called the number, the office is closed
Really fun game with an interesting concept, i would like to see another with the phone menu mechanic maybe with dialogue choices that would change the outcome.
For some reason my PC is saying that the game is a virus? Can anyone confirm or help my PC run it if it's not?
Not a virus. I think so. Didn't downloaded yet but planning tomorrow.
It's not a virus. Windows says basically any game is a virus and that can be ignored
first try, get in!
enjoyed the concept despite the fact it was frustrating
this had me sweating, great job :)
Very funny game! Great job!
Love it! Really Like This Idea<3
Ever since I've played this, I've had a yellow bright flashing number in the top center of my screen (where the last number is in the game). Anyone know how to fix this?
hey! i had reports of this as well before, seems like on some very rare instances some monitors have trouble with the flashing number, but it should heal over time. i'm gonna try and get an update out soon that fixes this!
HELP MY PC IS SAYING ITS A VIRUS WHAT DO I DOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
it's not a virus, don't worry! false flag probably
are you sure about that?
are you REALLY sure?
it's highly unlikely, what makes you think it has a virus? is your antivirus software flagging it?
Pressing 1 and 2 doesn't work without a numpad at the end of the game. Besides that, incredible work on this! I really enjoy these types of games
I had the same issue
Really fun idea! Well, as fun as can be navigating a phone menu. I really enjoyed my time playing it, you really captured the anxiety and stress of being stuck on a phone!
Great game! got it first try (kinda, I restarted initially, because I didn't remember I was chairman,but I restarted from scratch and finished with 25 seconds)
bro's being a speedrunner 💀
I have achieved world peace! (on my second attempt)
