May indie games have managed to turn mundane tasks into compelling experiences and 'From Ivan' is no different as it manages to be an incredibly entertaining greeting card game. Developed by Sean Bouchard, Martzi Campos and Will Campos, From Ivan places players in the shoes of a new HR Manager. This title is a tad overblown as players will rarely do any real HR work and will instead spend their time choosing greeting cards and sending them to the correct person.
A greeting card game may sound pointless or boring, but From Ivan manages to be incredibly compelling and hilarious throughout the game. The narrative of the game is branching and depending on which cards the players chose will dictate the various endings of the game.
