“If you fail to satisfy a client in time, they begin to protest and cry.”
This is a fun way to spend a spare hour and a perfect choice for any Linux user who doesn’t want to dive into serious and time-devouring Steam games. It was originally designed as an entertaining placeholder for the ‘Page not found’ page of the Zalando web site. Zalando is a German brand of shoes and apparel and in the game you’re trying to deliver these to Zolando customers in order to prove yourself a diligent and smart Zalandoer.
The screen shows two fashion stores and four clients — semi-naked people who express what they want in thought balloons. You must load your bicycle with the proper goods and deliver them to each customer. The game is about strategy and planning, because you need to think ahead and decide in which order you should visit the clients. The maximum load of your bicycle is only four items, and takes some time to get anywhere, so while you’re heading to the client, they may reconsider and change their order. If you fail to satisfy a client in time, they first begin to protest and cry (it looks a bit repulsive, just like in real life), then after a while disappear and get replaced with another person — that’s when you loose another life out of the three available lives you start with.
