Layoff – could be the official game of the financial crisis


Layoff is one part Bejewelled, one part Dilbert and all snark. Rearrange your workforce to cut costs but don’t you dare try and layoff the businessmen. When times get tricky, beg for a bailout, keep your money and start again. A facts ticker along the bottom of the game helps you maintain the rage.

LAYOFF uses a simple casual game paradigm to comment on the current state of the US financial crisis. Both friends and strangers face tough times in an unstable economy. Part dark humor, mostly grim portent, in the game players play from the side of management needing to cut jobs, and match types of workers in groups in order to lay the workers off and increase workforce efficiency.
