A game about the often meaningless and always painful process of getting laid off, Canned depicts the ways in which workers are denied their humanity and defined by their economic output before extending a hand to build them back up.
Although they don’t know why, several employees have been summoned to their boss’ office and are waiting outside. Players play the boss as well as nervous employees, who for various reasons cannot afford to lose their job. This is a game about the perils of capitalist productivity standards and how the system pits workers against the needs of one another in order to sustain income inequality.Tags: Collaborative, Dark, Emotional, Freeform, Improv, Serious
