Made on Ludum Dare 36 - Entry Link
I'm happy to greet you in our one big Telephone National Inc. family.
My name is Harris and I will be your mentor and supervisor, opening the doors to the new and exciting world of public service to you!
I am sure that you already know the ground principals of our work!
They are the following:
- Be nice to our subscribers
- Do not chit chat with clients
- When you want to go to lavatory, don't say it. Raise your hand instead.
The basics of operating a telephone switchboard:
- When you have an incoming call - the lamp will be lit above one of the sockets of the left switchboard
- Grab one of the output jacks from the jack board
- Insert it in the socket with the lighted lamp
- Switch on the button corresponding to the used cable, to hear the caller
- Usually a customer will say something like: "Please, connect me to the A14"
- Say something nice, to let him know that you are doing the request and grab the input jack for the cable you used to connect to the caller
- Insert it in the socket of the corresponding subscriber on the right switchboard. You can find it by combining letters and number on the edge of the board
- Now switch the button for the cable off, to not listen to the call. Eavesdropping is wrong.
- After the call is finished - the lamps above the the used sockets will flash. You can now remove the jacks
After a day passes you will get an evaluation from your supervisor, containing details on the statistics of:
- Calls received
- Calls connected correctly
- Сalls handled incorrectly
- Calls Disconnected Prematurely
- Calls duration
- Answer delay
- Connection delay
- Calls overheard
All of that is summarized and you are given a mark:
- If you get a bad mark you will be warned. And if you get a bad mark the next day again, you will be fired.
- Also, if you fail miserably and get an E - you will be fired right away. No one wants such bad servicemen.
Left mouse button - pick the jack / plug the jack
Right mouse button - drop the picked jack
- Accurate simulation of a mid 30s of 20th century telephone switchboard operator work
- Intriguing score system
- Increasing complexity
