Please Hold! A Representative Will Be With You Shortly! allows you to replay a classic tale of love, loss, and - most importantly - the trials and tribulations of troubleshooting your internet connection. This is a choice-based game. It takes between 5-45 minutes to complete, depending on how you play. There are random disconnect events that may extend your play time. (That is a feature, not a bug). Please Hold! was originally created for Ludum Dare 30 for the theme of "Connected World".

Go forth and make people miserable! Armed with ‘misery tokens’, make choices and ruin people’s lives! Sarcastic and witty, Misanthrope twists the initial encouragement for your life-ruining into a subtle guilt-trip. In the beginning/middle, the game gives sometimes cruel options - options that people in real life clearly opt for, but at that level of casual cruelty. At first, it’s weirdly satisfying to wreak havoc, but towards the end, the author turns this around by humanising all the people whose lives you have ‘ruined’. Despite the title, Misanthrope is, in truth, surprisingly compassionate.
