No Benefits is a card game about your job. The temp job you said you’d quit in four months, five years ago. Remember how you said you wanted to be a writer? An artisanal pickle maker? Now's your chance!
It only takes you two hours to finish your data entry, but management doesn't know that. Do you really want to make copies of copies all day? Why not work on your fucking novel and brine pickles in the bathroom instead? You’re pulling a paycheck either way.
Relive one week of your life in one hour.
We channeled the stress, fear and anxiety we felt while working in our soul-crushing jobs into the mechanics of No Benefits. The game simulates how it feels to make it through a workweek, without actually getting fired or lighting yourself on fire.Watch the Video
