#252: IKI (title padding)

(They’ve done something to their RSS feed which, while technically valid, breaks the parser I’ve been using until now.)

As employers, we gamers are a strange lot. We are expected to feed our workers, house them, give them their raw materials; we tell them where to go, when to work,a nd for how long; we subject them to fires, predation, starvation… and on top of all this, in some games we appear to confiscate all their wages! At least in Food Chain Magnate we occasionally allow them to go to the beach. Under strict supervision. Until we permit them the sweet release of death. I mean, until they “retire.” Yeah, that sounds better.
