Originally released in Japan as Beit Hell 2000, WTF: Work Time Fun (an acronym better known as "what the fuck") is a compilation of minigames akin to Warioware or Bishi Bashi Special. loosely held together by a horror theme wherein you work in a temp agency in Hell, performing menial tasks for a paycheck almost on a par with that of a third- world textile worker, in order to purchase more jobs, tools and trinkets from Gashapon aka Capsule Toy Machines of varying prices. Duplicate items from the machines can hamper your progress, though this can be avoided by switching off auto-save and rebooting if funds are low.
Depending on your performance, you will receive award notices via email, strange emails from other employees, and even spam which may decrease your funds. Certain emails are received according to special circumstances (hint: play the game on your birthday) and some minigames will also vary depending on the time of day or date. Though there is no underlying story, the humor is more universal than similar games such as Hot PXL and Napoleon Dynamite giving WTF a certain level of charm.
