From Ivan is a fun little branching narrative adventure in which you control the story by selecting which greetings cards to send to friends, family and co-workers.
In From Ivan you take on the role of a newly recruited Human Resources Manager at a company that only loves profits and acronyms (but which realises that the best way to increase profits is to have a happy workforce). Your job is to increase morale by choosing the most suitable greetings cards to send to your coworkers for different situations. As well as work, you can also send cards to friends and family, helping to build relationships, learn more about your life and hopefully secure a job that doesn’t entail working for a soul crushing corporation that thinks everything can be fixed with cards.
It’s a clever concept, that makes for a unique way of storytelling as your entire life is dictated by the cards you send and other simple choices such as what font you send a letter in. The company that you work for is pretty terrible, but it does have a good point – sending cards rather than texts and emails is a welcome personal touch that can make all the difference to someones life.
