The game screen looks like this, with illustrations and text displayed at the same time. All texts are in English, so you need to translate them yourself or use a translation service such as

Google Translate or DeepL Translator. The opening said, 'When you look in the mirror, you will find sandy hair reminiscent of your favorite Roman emperor, soft but sharp blue eyes, and moles and freckles scattered around your neck and chin.'

If you make a mistake, you end up developing other software or services instead of Facebook.

Sometimes I developed Facebook-related software like Wirehog, and sometimes I was absorbed in developing completely unrelated services and ended up becoming a Google engineer. Please note that the purpose of 'Zuck: The Game' is just to 'launch Facebook', so if you work on development other than Facebook, the game will be over.

It took about an hour to clear it.
