Publisher Wired Productions, writer/director Jörg Tittel and game studio Wolf & Wood present a brand new Christmas spot from Jüngle Corporation, the largest online retailer driving the increasingly automated world of The Last Worker controlled. In addition, is The Last Worker now confirmed for PlayStation VR2. In addition, the title will be released in 2023 for Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Meta Quest 2. The brand new physical Jüngle Pronto Edition was also announced.
The Last Worker is a first-person adventure set in Jüngle Fulfillment Center 1, the largest retail facility on earth. The title is about humanity’s struggle in a world where humans are increasingly being replaced by robots. The game combines a hand-drawn style created in collaboration with comic book legend Mick McMahon (Judge Dredd, 2000 AD) with uniquely addictive game mechanics.
Players who purchase the title on PlayStation 5 will also get the PSVR2 version at no additional cost – and save files and progress will be carried over between the two versions.
In addition, Wired Productions has released the Jüngle Pronto edition of The Last Worker announced. The Pronto Edition will be released in 2023 and includes a reversible cover, Jüngle stickers and a double-sided poster.
The Last Worker delivers an emotional, thought-provoking story with richly crafted characters, narrated by a star cast that includes Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, Star Trek Discovery), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (The Meg, True Detective), Clare-Hope Ashitey (Children of Men ), David Hewlett (The Shape of Water), Zelda Williams (The Legend of Korra) and Tommie Earl Jenkins (Death Stranding). The Last Worker was voiced by Oliver Kraus, known for his collaborations with artists such as Adele, Sia and Florence and the Machine.
“Like his real-world counterparts, Mr. Jüngle has a lot to be happy about,” says author-director Joerg Tittel, whose company Oiffy is producing the game. “While he’s making billions, hordes of increasingly dehumanized workers struggle to get you the superhero-themed electric toothbrush head on time. Of course we couldn’t let him get all the $$$ so we made this cynical product for you. Happy capitalist ho-ho horror!”
“The player embodies Kurt, a tall man with a large beard delivering ‘gifts’ on a flying scooter,” said Ryan Bousfield, Creative Director at Wolf & Wood. “Even though you have robots instead of reindeer, it’s a testament to the immersive power of VR that such an unusual and stylized world still feels ‘real’ when you’re in it!”
