Description

Ever wonder what it's like to have a sickness you're forced to work through? Unsavory let's you experience the world of restaurant work without paid sick days. You'll push your body to the limit in order to make ends meet in the challenging unforgiving world of the fast food industry. Complete orders with lightning speed and wipe that snot away, you've got money to make! Just don't contaminate the food.

History

After working with Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United) on a mobile app for ethical dining, the unsavory thought of preparing food while sick stuck in our heads. Most people support businesses having paid sick day policies, yet the majority of restaurant workers don't have them. We wanted to design a game that confronted this issue head on.
