Civil Service is a fantasy text adventure. Despite its name this has very little to do with the Civil Service. The premise of the game is that the Civil Service is to be privatised and reorganised. As a result all recruits must go through a tough interview process.

Well actually, it's an obstacle course designed to test endurance, puzzle solving skills and lateral thinking. The objective being to complete the course and recover six gems hidden by the examiners.

This game was developed using Professional Adventure Writer. It supports the standard shortcuts such as N/S/E/W for North/South/East/West as well as more advanced commands.
