Everyday Misanthrope will relieve your stress after a crappy day in the cubicle.

Sweet, sweet schadenfreude in Everyday Misanthrope

Everyday Misanthrope will relieve your stress after a crappy day in the cubicle.

If you have 5-10 minutes to spare, you need to play this game. It’s the shortest and most satisfying game I’ve played in a while. Everyday Misanthrope is a text-based “choose-your-own-adventure” type that is reminiscent of Shadow Gate in style and Leisure Suit Larry in humor.

Bwa ha ha ha!

It’s a simple story of a day in the life of a total tool. Because you are miserable, and everyone else should be as well. It’s really fun.

The gameplay is simple enough. You wake up, are given misery tokens and proceed to spend them to create misery around you. However, not every high-token-action rewards accordingly.

You get to do pretty much everything the 10-year-old Dennis the Menace inside of you wants. I don’t want to ruin too much of it (it is only a ten minute game at most) but the replay value is comparatively high from sheer curiosity for the possible dialogue. 

 Liz England at Insomniac games created Everyday Misanthrope and is free to play on PC, mac, and Linux.
