I was basically inspired to create a game based on my experiences with being a highly-educated unemployed young person. And even though this experience is fairly common, I wasn't seeing much representation of it in current popular entertainment. So I decided to download RPG Maker and make my own retro-style RPG about it.
The big hook is that instead of monsters, you fight enemies like "Doubt" and "Isolation" or do battle with potential employers armed with your resume, casting spells like "firm handshake."
I'm also composing an original score using Korg DS-10+ which is aimed at recreating retro soundtracks. Sound effects are being created on a Game Boy using Nanoloop.
Here are a couple screenshots:
I have a Kickstarter page here to fund a limited, physical release.
I'd really appreciate any pledges! My current plans are that the CD version is never going to be available for sale online. So Kick in if you want one!
So far it's been very satisfying to make and I'm hoping to end up with an fun, relevant final product. Yeah!
(BTW, at the moment, it's going to be Windows only.)
I realize this forum is a little dead, but I want to share!

I sympathize with you, as I'm dealing with trying to find a job - even something humdrum retail - and having little to no luck, even though I would make a fantastic chemist in a lab somewhere.
When I get the rest of the month's funds figured out, I'll gladly kick something (albeit small) your way.

I just have to say that my head is been spinning from the phenomenal support I've gotten for this over the past couple days on Kickstarter. @_@

The game is now on Desura for people who go for that sort of thing!
MORE EXCITINGLY: It's a part of the current Indie RPG-themed Bundle In a Box! So for anyone who's vaguely curious, wants a while bunch of other awesome RPGs and doesn't want to pay a lot of money while supporting charity and other indie developers... CHECK IT OUT!
