Hello IVAN

As our new Human Resources Manager, your job is to manage our human resources, which means picking out the best greeting card to send people on the many occasions when sending a greeting card is appropriate. Studies show that distributing appropriate cards has a significant impact on the mood, productivity, and long-term outcomes. Do not take this responsibility lightly.

From Ivan is a short branching narrative game where you control the story indirectly by sending mail to your friends, family, and coworkers. It was created by Sean Bouchard, Martzi Campos, and Will Campos. Music by Kyle Laporte.

  • Receive mail from your boss, coworkers, family, and friends
  • Send greeting cards to mark a wide variety of special occasions
  • Maybe find love?
  • Eight different endings based on your choices

This game is a companion piece to Cosmonet. You do not need to play Cosmonet to enjoy From Ivan.

From Ivan is a game about cards. Cards for people who need them. Everything from "congrats on your meteor shower" to "Sorry for your loss". Will we get the girl? Will we keep our job?

i Had no idea what i was playing i went in blind i didnt even look at the tralier.

First off, I absolutely adored this game. It was slightly confusing at first, but I quickly became acustomed to the ways of this (futuristic?) world. I got really attached to the characters even though it was a half hour experience. The style is fantastic and the sounds (and furthermore soundtrack) were fabulous. 

Looking forward to more content from you guys.

Whoa this was really good. For a 30min game I really wasn't expecting to have so many favorite moments! Definitely going to play through it again soon!

This is a pretty fun and sympathetic game! The writing is really great and the graphics add to the good impression.

We'd like to let you know, that games like this would fit well in the annual Game Development World Championship, which is a contest open for all indie developers.

really fun!

Hi there :) This is a great game, however I think I came across a bug. When I picked the Stay Strong card for the colleague in an accident, the response from his wife suggested I picked the bee-themed one. Just thought you might want to check that out, and otherwise I'm loving the game so far! 


Thank you so much! I'm investigating this bug right now and will let you know when it's fixed.

Found it! There was a typo in the script. So sorry about that, but thank you for pointing it out! The files have been fixed so if you download the game again, it should work this time.

Really appreciate your kind words about the game, too!

Glad I could be of assistance, and no need to apologise, these things happen! I'll be sure to give the game another go, as it was really enjoyable the first time around :)
