Sick of your job, but can’t afford to quit? Why not sit in your cubicle and play video games all day? But your boss is always looking over your shoulder, you say? Now that’s no problem thanks to these clever games disguised as office applications.
Just stop by over at CantYouSeeImBusy.com, choose your program, and get to work! Right now, you’ve got three great timewasters to choose from – Breakdown, which conceals a game of Breakout in a word processor (I love how the horizontal scroll bar is your paddle, and the words are the bricks); Cost Cutter, which plays sorta like a sideways Tetris, but with bar charts; and finally Leadership, an updated version of Lunar Lander, built on a set of line graphs.
The guys over at CantYouSeeImBusy are themselves actually hard at work making up new games for you to play while your boss walks by. Of course, if he’s not watching, you could always be more conspicuous and just play some of these classic games recreated in Excel.
