Description: In the 30th century, robots have taken over the Earth. Humanity’s numbers are dwindling, but rising robot labour costs have created a need to increase human labour forces to save costs.
The Earth Transit Authority, trying to cut costs has hired you to perform tasks once performed by a more expensive robot. It is your job to sort Proprietary Units for Transport and Containment, objects created by the ETA to simplify transportation of goods all around the world. But your task will not remain so simple, as the ETA continues to increase your workload and their profit margins.
In light of humanity’s newfound importance, a small group of new employees are taking advantage of the situation to try and topple the status quo. Assist your fellow humans by moving the resistance’s equipment, or maintain the status quo, siding with your robotic overlords. The choice is yours.
Review: 30th Century Post Office sees you doing a small variety of things to keep your futuristic post-office up and running. Your main job is to sort the post with is all the same shape, but you will need to take care of the other machines around you by putting fires out, fixing them and general upkeep. I normally like these virtual job games, but this one isn’t the best at all. Maybe it is the basic graphics that put me off, but I suspect it is the repetitiveness of the manic post sorting that I really hate. It just feels so borning and there are far too many bugs to make this game enjoyable. There is no way on earth this game is worth £6.99, but I would pay a quid or less for it. So one to look out for in a good sale for sure.
