The day started in the worst possible way: an email with a sudden, team-wide meeting invite, offering no clues to its content. Nervous interns shuffled their way into the cavernous meeting hall where they are met by their handler, Mr. MacCallan. He beams at them, with all the warmth and charisma of a shark. "Interns! I'm pleased to report that InternCo has secured several full-time positions at prestigious corporations. Soon, your time with us will come to an end, but I'm sure you will never forget the valuable lessons you learned here." There was a pause, long enough for everyone to figure out there was a catch. "Unfortunately, we will not have enough positions for everyone on the Intern team. Management will make its decision by the end of tomorrow." MacCallan lingered on the last three words. "So this is your last chance to make an impression and rise above the competition." The interns looked among each other, awkwardly shuffling away from what had now become 'competition'. "As such, I've taken the liberty of booking you all for another eight hours of overtime today, so you can really impress. No need to thank me." Their handler concluded. "And no, you won't be paid for it. Now get back to work and show everyone who the best intern is!"Intern Royale is a short adventure for 4-5 players set in an Intern Mill type of corporation, run by one Game Master. The players take the role of interns that has to rise above their competition to secure full-time employment by working together and screwing everyone else over. With stakes so high, the office soon becomes a battleground between interns, fought with ass-kissing and sharp office supplies. Players have sixteen work hours to gather merit awards, eliminate enemies, and generally be scheming little interns. Win, and rise above the minimum-income existence. Lose, and probably end up at a Brain-Box farm. Good luck, Interns!
