Greetings! I am Lee Yunseok, creator of YGGDRASIL STUDIO. 2018 Summer Sale started on Steam! We are participating with our title called Discouraged Workers with historical low price. Hope you like it!


Discouraged Workers is an independent progressive kinetic novel created by YGGDRASIL STUDIO. The episode is the fifth in the Project DW series, a satirical story based on the popular Korean soap operas-styled plot. It compares Ga-yeon’s bleak everyday life to the dark side of youth.


Overview


As a hospital coordinator, Ga-yeon fell in love with a doctor at the hospital she was working in and they had an affair even though the doctor was a married man. When the director found out, she was fired. For over a year she tried to find another job, but her mental uneasiness eventually made her give up and she became a recluse.

A year later, in the spring of 2013, her younger sister, Hye-na, and her first love Yunwoo come to her.

A story about the dark side of today’s youth and serious life events happening around Ga-yeon.

The English translation is rather spotty. Based on the demo trailer there's some errors and dialogue seems rather unnatural for speech.

Otherwise it seems rather interesting

It was used my english and the magazine too. My translator will translate what I ordered(currently working for demo game). The trailer will be renewed again when the official release. Current trailer is the updated version of arts.
