A walk through the front door brings you to Pam’s office, empty of her signature candy dish and plants. Hey, there is the teapot Jim gave her for Christmas! What’s inside — Jim’s high school yearbook picture? A packet of hot sauce? A word confessing his secret passion? Um, no, looks like all you can do is drop it on the virtual floor.
A walk around the offices doesn’t yield much – a security badge for Dwight with Fart for his middle name. Some thoughts on Creed on a computer screen. Nothing happens in the conference room except for a half-hearted birthday banner.
The most “robust” walkthrough experience is Michael’s desk, which includes a stupid Dundie, a Post-it note with Michael’s easy-to-guess password, and a World’s Best Boss coffee mug that looks like a toilet paper roll with a handle. .
At least on this walkthrough, it doesn’t look like you can hang out in the virtual rest room, bullpen, warehouse, or bathroom. But it’s early. We understood. The experience will surely become more robust over time. But will it continue to be so… empty? It’s post-apocalyptic Scranton, office furniture in place and utterly devoid of life. We guess your digital friends can come along, or virtual strangers, probably. It could be just as off-putting – what kind of desktop environment is full of floating, legless avatars?
