“We left the drudgeries of Corporate America to do make a game satirizing that world, and it’s done so well we’ve been able to turn it into a real Corporate America-style business!” said Astro Ape cofounder Chris Cheung.“With a little extra support from Free App A Day and Apperang, we thought we’d reward all the new recruits with some fake money for their fake offices!”
