The staff at my call centre are a slovenly bunch. I learn this on the first day I hire them when, after finishing their shifts, they leave the office ankle-deep in rubbish. It's okay, though, because I hire some janitors to work the night shift, cleaning up after the slobs.
I'm still a little worried about the receptionist, who sits all day and all night, hammering at the keyboard of her computer, a manic grin across her pixel-art face. Nobody says hello to Jill - they just walk past her, even though she's there all the time, giving me information and hints.
This is the world of Smooth Operators, where silent, sweetly animated men and women slave away to fill up my coffers, and in turn I build them toilets that are closer than the ones in their houses.
A twee and entertaining sim, Smooth Operators isn't perfect, but it's deep enough to satisfy the call centre-running urges of most
