A fair number of members here played my previous two games, so I thought I'd let you know about my most recent effort. Hopefully I'll be forgiven for doing this one via Kickstarter, since I didn't make this one solely with free resources:

The Debt Alliance swept over the kingdom without warning. Suddenly Free Time Mountain and Hobby Oasis were lost, and the debt monsters were attacking the walls of Castle Sanity itself.
Cubicle Quest is a game about how life can suck. Dead end jobs, repetitive obligations, irritating coworkers... Cubicle Quest takes all of those things and turns them into enemies you can fight in an old-school RPG.
This isn't a bunch of financial advice repackaged as a game, and it's not going to hit you over the head with lectures. The enemy in the video is about as blunt as it gets: kill "Unpaid Bill" enemies fast, or they turn into nastier "Late Fee" enemies.Your skills and elements boil down to a few intuitive categories, so I think it makes for a fun RPG experience even if you don't care about the financial foundation.
But at least part of the fun is the ability to take a character from deeply in debt to a more fulfilling life. In real life, even if you have things under control, your finances can move pretty slowly paycheck to paycheck and it can take years to attain some goals. Cubicle Quest packages the feelings of moving up in life into a fun gaming experience.
I waited to post until after we'd made our goal. If anyone is interested, great, but if not, that's fine. If you were a beta tester on my previous games and want this one without contributing to the Kickstarter, send me a PM and I'd be happy to send you the game.
