Re-testing the Employment Collection games on Linux via Steam+Proton today

Just want to give a quick shout-out to @mangotronics, who is doing some great work filling a void in indie gaming.

Lots of super-fun but super-short indie games out there that are awesome but a tough sell on their own. These guys are working with the devs to create bundles!

Happy Wednesday! The Steam launch is now scheduled for July 30th.

Version 1.0.7 is out now on itch.io! Job at Risk (formerly Employee Sim) has some substantial updates. Check it out! We'd love to hear your feedback.

Grab the Employment Collection on Steam, launching on July 30th, and stack cheese for maximum efficiency.

It has come to our attention that we will be trapped in some sort of alternate dimension where hyper indie games have their own showcase, and business does not reign supreme.
Join us...tomorrow at 12pm PST. The future of indie games is in your hands.

Obligatory summer gamefest teaser announcement: We're working on updating and prepping the collection this weekend for a few new games. More about those games soon!

We're working on a collection of games about the harsh realities of job searching and employment, bundled up into a nice little themed launcher.
All profits get split evenly between the devs, to help support development of future indie game projects!

From terrible jobs to firefly horror, it's an odd one for itch.io releases this week! There's a good blend in there though! Check out the week's most creative and different games:

We got a new game alert! This Tuesday I'm going to try out a new game my good friend @LilMackaronii recommended, it's called Passage and it's made by @mangotronics and I can't wait to try it out. Plus more Cuphead, Baseball, Genshin and boss fights throughout the week!

In Boxcorp Employee Training you are tasked with packing boxes as efficiently as possible into holes in the ground. You can either take your job seriously and be careful or just enjoy some good old fashioned video game physics.

Buy it here: mangotronics.itch.io/mangotron

Same vibes. I hope we can release something like this in the near future!
