A young manager working in a large technology company with an excellent reputation discovers that, behind all the talk and corporate messaging around recycling their e-waste, the company’s policy is actually completely immoral and illegal, focusing on short-term profitability despite pollution risks, and contrary to the reputation of the company as an ethical one.

“So good! In my first try I got carried away and things ended badly for me, then I came back to it to find the most pleasant ending (but I don’t want to spoil it). It’s very realistic.” — Goss, author of “Late for Love”.

“One of the best games I’ve played (AAA titles included). The game is full of atmosphere, great writing, and the puzzles are all very well thought out and intuitive. I have a ton of games on my PS4, and I’ve had more fun with this indie title than most of them 🙂 I seriously can’t wait for more games from Hugo Labrande.” – Ninjadoodle
