File Your Taxes Prototype

This is a game that tries to capture the boredom and frustration of filing taxes. To complete your taxes, you will have to painstakingly jump through arbitrary hoops that you don't even know exist. Just like real life! You will have to deal with employees who are too bored and cynical to give you even the least amount of help. Just like real life! If you fail to complete your taxes in time, you'll be sent to jail. Just like real life!

When the game starts, you are randomly assigned a character and occupation. Your occupation determines which forms you need to file to complete your taxes. Wait in line to talk to a tax agent, who will tell you one form that you need. Each agent has a different set of forms to give you. Some forms require that you already have other forms.

Move with the arrow keys.

This game is in a rough state, but it was completed in two weeks of free time for my April entry in the One Game A Month challenge. There are still some AI bugs, so the mindless drones might cause a problem that prevents you from completing your taxes. Just like real life!
