Passage: A Job Interview Simulator launches first two episodes on Android, with a full 5-chapter launch in May

Mangotronics has announced the official launch of Passage: A Job Interview Simulator, letting players experience what it might be like when a god that has been reincarnated into your cat has the ability to stop time during your interviews (a handy skill indeed). The indie game is a follow-up to a visual novel that was released in 2020, and the first two chapters are out now on the Google Play Store.

In Passage, players can expect to step into the shoes of a wide-eyed graduate fresh out of college and eager to step into the cutthroat world of corporate life. Jobhunting is never easy - and even more so when big business moguls seem to have questionable motives.

"Passage initially started as a graduate thesis project, but has grown to be so much more," says Matt, founder of Mangotronics Games, from the press release. "With this game, we hope to teach players real-life communication skills and spark conversations about the ever-changing job landscape."
