Really cool. Theres a lot of funny stuff in here. I did get some issues that it disconnected when I pressed throttle.

Well that was certainly fun. I love how I was able to work with this one although it does get harder as the days progress. Love the content. If I find this on gamejolt I am so supporting this. 5/5 all the way.
love the theme!
I'm not sure I quite get the concept even though i've played games like papers please.
I think I might have to give this another go!
Thank you for playing Packets, Please!
It seems you have been boosting customers who are already using more than their allotted data (the gold, silver, bronze badges indicate what tier the customers are. Their data usage is next to their start time), and sending some responses that violate HR (“eat my butt”). Once you get 5 strikes you are fired from your position at CosmoCast. We will add more clear messaging at the beginning so you know where to find the relevant info.
We hope you give it another shot!
This is so clever!! Love it! Congrats on jamming!

We are thinking of having him in the game as an Easter egg :)
This is fantastic. Super challenging and relevant. A+
I liked it, but it was very confusing at the beginning. The UI is just hard to make sense of.
I got a handle of it at some point, though.
thanks for making this video! We’re definitely going to address some of the issues you identified!
How do you play this? I get fired before I even read the intro text and figure out what's going on.
Got through the first day by constantly clicking outside the game to pause it...
Thanks for trying out our game!
The goal of the game is to throttle, boost, or disconnect customers based on the company policy of the day. Sometimes the information is in multiple emails.
You get strikes from multiple sources, for example:
- Choosing the wrong action for a customer based on company policy
- Not keeping up with the queue of customers you need go handle
- Choosing responses to emails that violate HR
We plan to make this more clear in an updated version.
Got it, thanks!
Maybe make emails modal (front & center) & pause the game while they're open?
We plan to make it so you can take your time reading the initial emails and then press a button to start receiving customers for the day.
However, once customers start coming we want you to balance your time handling customers and reading emails as it’s part of the difficulty :)
