CEO TEST update 1: Gesicht software & gameplay

The development of the CEO Test has progressed as far as we have now have most details of the Gesicht software worked out and functioning. The gesicht software is an interface the Glazial Group has developed to control the company, and it will be the primary tool in the upcoming game CEO Test. Its features include




tech_hoverCOURSE PLANNER – In order to best all competitors, the Glazial Group seeks to augment all its assets, including your brain. From artificial intelligence research to marketing, the pathways of knowledge are open to you – paid for by the Glazial Group.


emotions_hoverEMOTION EVALUATION – We care for our employees on the deepest level. Your emotions guide your actions, which is why we take a great interest in them. Our system measures 8 mental states: aggression, joy, sadness, fear, detachment, focus, curiosity, and love.

We at the Glazial Group realize that we cannot stop our employees from using coffee, alcohol or LSD. This is why we encourage sensible use, be it for recreation or performance enhancement.


planner_hoverCALENDAR – Plan every weekly activity and decide how much time you wish to allocate to actual work, courses, or recreational activities such as powernapping, meditation or sex. Each activity is measured for its emotional effects.

CONFERENCE CALL SYSTEM – As CEO of the Glazial Group, you will never have to leave your chair. All human contact you need is transferred to your office, directly analyzing emotional interactions.

EMPLOYEE TRACKER – The Gesicht software calculates company resources by work hours. Each office drone, programmer or lawyer is important to the firm. (make sure to fire them after projects to avoid redundancies)


executives_hoverEXECUTIVE SURVEILLANCE – Your top managers are the backbone of the firm. But since they are also often the source of intrigue and power shifts, their financials and psychologies are carefully observed. Have them manage company floors, assign them to projects and send them on missions.

storage_hoverSTORAGE – Equip yourself and your managers with useful items such as golden golf clubs or experimental laptops.



The story of the CEO Test will branch according to 1) the choices you make in conference calls (depending on your emotions, substances how well you get along with other characters) and 2) which deadlines you choose to meet (depending on your economic and strategic choices in the game).

What is left is integrating the Gesicht software with the nonlinear story, or the countless story branches. We at the Glazial Group are anxious to present you, potential CEO candidate, with a playable version of the CEO Test soon.
