How to play The IT Crowd Game Game.
For those who have watched the TV series it shouldn't be hard to understand the game. It represent a company with 5 floors, where employees work on their computers. Down at the basement is the IT department and the player take the role of one of the three IT employees to fix the computers on the upper floors. Move with the arrow keys up, down, left and right, and stop with space bar. Avoid the wandering figures on the floor 5, 3 and the basement. They represent the two bosses of the company Douglas and Denholm. If they catch the player while not fixing computers, they will subtract from the morale points(left on the screen). If morale points drop to zero, the game is lost. While repairing computers they are harmless. The third character to avoid is Richmond, who will wander at the basement and hide behind his red door. From time to time the computers on the upper floors will break down and the pleyer need to go to the broken computer and fix it. If the computer is not fixed after 16 seconds it will dissapear and subtract one point from Working Computers count (left on the screen). If Working Computers count drop to zero, the game is lost. Roy, Moss and Jen have different abilities to help with fixing the computers. For example, Roy is moving faster and Moss is fixing computers faster. The only advantage of Jen, is that she does not suffer a social attrition. But Roy and Moss does. While they move among the company employees, the Social Attrition bar (left on the screen) begins to drop. If it drops to zero, the game is lost. To replenish Social Attrition bar and get +10 points of morale, the player need to go and take the coffee icon, which will appear down at the basement. And finally, to win the game, you need to fix 42 computers. Oh, and IT means: Information Technology.
Know what IT means and get +1 Knowledge Level.
Class subject: The IT Department.
The IT Crowd movie represent a company environment with IT department in a hilarious, yet very accurate in some aspects storyline. First, a lot of people do not comprehend the importance of the IT specialists. Second, a lot of the IT specialists are not very social persons and do not like tasks to go public. And third, the computer skills of 70% of the employees at European private companies and government institutions are below the minimum, making it hard to work with them in year 2018. The IT Crowd is a British sitcom, set in the offices of the fictional company Reynholm Industries. The show revolves around the three staff members of its IT department: a geeky genius named Maurice Moss, the work-shy Roy Trenneman, and Jen Barber, the department head/relationship manager, who knows nothing about computers. The show also focuses on the bosses of Reynholm Industries: Denholm Reynholm and later, his son Douglas, as well as goth IT technician Richmond Avenal. Roy and Moss, the two technicians, are socially inept geeks or, in Denholm Reynholm's words, "standard nerds." Despite the company's dependence on their services, they are despised, ignored, and considered losers by the rest of the staff. Roy's exasperation causes his laziness: his support techniques include ignoring the phone, hoping it will stop ringing, and using reel-to-reel tape recordings of stock IT suggestions. Moss's wide and intricate knowledge of all things technical is reflected in his accurate yet indecipherable suggestions, while he cannot deal with practical problems like extinguishing fires and removing spiders. Moss has trouble speaking to others in a rational manner, often citing bizarre facts about himself or technology, and is occasionally arrogant around others when it comes to computers. Jen, the newest member of the team, is hopelessly non-technical, despite claiming on her CV that she has "a lot of experience with computers." As Denholm, the company boss, is equally technologically illiterate, he is convinced by Jen's interview bluffing and appoints her head of the IT department. After meeting Roy and Moss, Jen redefines her role as "relationship manager," yet her attempts at bridging the gap between the technicians and the business generally have the opposite effect, landing Jen in situations just as ludicrous as those of her teammates.
