Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Dilberts & Downsizing at [Mini]Phalla Bell [Reserves welcome]

Everyone knew downsizing was coming. Someone in management decided that if they got rid of all the engineers, they could profit the payroll as bonuses! Heck, theoreticaly, if they cut enough costs, they could even be profitable if they didn't sell anything!

The company probably will go down in flames, though. But that's the stockholders problem. And sales. And marketing. And engineering. And, well everyone who's not a manager to be honest. But the managers decide the direction of the company. And the diection they want is all the way into the ground, baby!

But, someone [strike]incompetent bufoon[/strike] manager let it leak. The mail describing the plan got CC'd to the whole company. The engineers, in an entirely out of character move, find their spines and fight back. Their plan?

Well, they're working on it. But if they get rid of all of the Managers, the company will enter a glorious age of productivity and stockholder value will skyrocket! Until someone steals all the office supplies for personal profit anyway. So, for about a week or so.
