Networking Event Simulator

“Networking Event Simulator” by corpsepile.

“[A comfortable] environment to [h]elp develop your core competencies and take a deep dive [into] the next generation of [s]ocial interaction and strate[g]ic interpersonal [a]lignment!”


Certain types of events lead to a certain type of attending audiences. It’s important to understand that the rules of an event and the diversity of the invited people form its individual culture. That’s why networking events often feel so dull. Overambitious personalities try to get their names out on the street and try to connect with anybody they think could be useful somehow for their careers. Business networking is mostly about efficiency and optimization, not about creative or social synergy and conversation.

“Networking Event Simulator” is a fantastic satire game about exactly this topic. Here you can go to two networking events and face a good dozen of corporate people caricatures. If you ever were to such an event, you will recognize a couple of them: The dudes who can only talk about their business trips, the intoxicated guy in the corner who had one too much to drink, people who just love to rant, arrogant assholes and many, many more. And even if you never had the questionable pleasure to be such an event, you will find it funny for sure.

Over the time this simulation game becomes a spectacular and over-the-top designed hyperbole. Just when you think it couldn’t get any crazier – I’m just thinking of the business card shooting mechanic in the second part of the game -, “Networking Event Simulator” shows off its secret weapon: The several minutes long ending scene! This sequence is like an infomercial about the upcoming, fictious DLC packages for “Networking Event Simulator”, and I couldn’t think of a more fitting finale. So let me just say this in the end: [EXPRESS RECOMMENDATION BY REPLYING WITH GAMING INDUSTRY BUSINESS JARGON OPTION #2]
