This game is very buggy. Despite the instructions given at the beginning, I was still lost as far as what to do. I am all for authenticity, but it may have been best to dumb down the process of being a switchboard operator, perhaps using symbols or colors instead of numbers. Also the buttons constantly danced around and didn't want me clicking on them! I also got a lot of text indicating that the people on the phone only said "undefined" to one another before hanging up.

I know that is a lot of criticism. I absolutely LOVE the underlying premise. It's retro and charming to think of switchboard operators.


hi! This is very common feedback. The game was released without a win condition and with some buggy text because of running out of time, but I’m working in a post jam version thats  easier to play, and hopefully more fun. I hope you’ll play it!

Very cool new idea!

I'm sorry to say this, but after reading the tutorial three times I still don't understand how to play. Most of the numbers in the Call Monitor don't appear in the phone directory. Furthermore, when I click connect the status changes to 'connected' but I don't know if I'm doing it all right. 

It is a pity because the game looks super original.
