What is a work trial and when is it okay? As part of the recruitment process, an employer might ask you to do a work trial. A work trial is a short (often unpaid) stint in the workplace. Work trials give you a chance to demonstrate your skills and suitability for the position. TrialWerk is an experimental narrative in the form of an exploration game, featuring intertwined characters, objects and landscapes. A rather small domain of perplexing office-based deadline environment is overflowing with layers of living systems, functioning like a speed dating event held on your first day at work. While trying to make the best first impression, the feedback they receive leads the main character through a series of curious situations with their colleagues.
