I can’t tell you how often I have heard “walgreens tech ridge”, it’s a phrase that is so overused it’s become a cliché. Well, that’s why I love the phrase, because it has a very specific meaning in the context of what I do. I’m a technology consultant and consultant. I make my living out of it, and I make it by selling it.
I know you probably have heard this from your grandma, and that’s okay. You can be forgiven for forgetting it, but the concept itself is as true as ever. To be a consultant implies that you have a very practical and hands-on approach to a problem. The phrase is often used to describe someone who has spent their career in an industry that they aren’t really sure they know anything about. It can be used as a compliment or a bad thing.
Walgreen’s Tech Ridge is a game that has me wondering if I’ve made the only mistake possible in this life by picking it as my career. In a lot of ways it is a perfect example of the new age conundrum that it’s trying to tackle. The game is set up so that you play as a Walgreens tech consultant. A Walgreens consultant is someone who spends a lot of their time working in a Walgreens department.
The game is divided into four distinct time periods, each one of which can be played in a different order. This means that you can play the game as a consultant in any of three time periods but you have to work in a Walgreens department in the fourth. It also means that every time you play, you have a set amount of time to complete the level. You are not limited by the amount of time you have to complete any section of the game.
This is also the game where the levels play as a time loop because of the same sort of looping mechanism, which is a concept similar to that of a game full of time loops.
The problem is that there are very few ways you can complete levels in Walgreens. You can visit each of the store’s departments and talk to the people in them. But there is no way you can complete any level while you’re visiting other departments. So you have to get there early or stay late so that you can accomplish one task at a time.
Walgreens Tech Ridge is a game that I’ve heard of, but didn’t play, so I can’t confirm whether it’s good. This is the same sort of game, in a way, as Walgreens’ latest offering. It’s called Walgreens Tech Ridge, and it follows the same time looping mechanic, albeit in a more linear fashion.
I have to admit that I didnt know that they were releasing a new game with Walgreens’ name attached. I thought that Walgreens was a brand name, which is why I was confused. It feels more like a game company, in that it is a company that has a set of products (and a brand) and a set of people that are responsible for the products.
Walgreens Tech Ridge is exactly the sort of game that companies like Walgreens should be releasing. With a time looping mechanic, it plays in the same way as Walgreens Tech Ridge. Except in Tech Ridge you can’t actually go in the store and buy the product at all. You have to wait for them to release it somewhere else. It is a game that plays on the idea that you are an employee of a company with a set of products to sell.
If you think games like this are just a couple of extra dollars for some of your employees to sit around and play with, think again. If you think the company you work for is some sort of corporation and you are just sitting around and playing with your employees, think again. It’s just the same old same old.
