The Last Worker is a first-person narrative adventure centered around humanity’s struggle in an increasingly automated world, where humans are being replaced by robots. Created from the ground up to deliver both VR and flat-packed experiences, the game combines a hand-crafted art style created in collaboration with comics legend Mick McMahon (Judge Dredd, 2000 AD) immersive gameplay mechanics, seamlessly interwoven into a narrative game like no other.
It delivers an emotional, thought-provoking story filled with rich characters performed by an all-star cast including Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, Star Trek Discovery), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (The Meg, True Detective), Clare-Hope Ashitey (Riviera, Children of Men), David Hewlett (The Shape of Water, Oddworld New’n’Tasty), Zelda Williams (The Legend of Korra) and Tommie Earl Jenkins (Death Stranding, Wednesday). It is scored by Oliver Kraus, known for his collaborations with the likes of Adele, Sia, and Florence and the Machine.
“Just as the pandemic has made us all dependent on home deliveries, it took us a whole pandemic to deliver this game.” said Writer, Director Jörg Tittel, whose company, Oiffy, is also producing the game. “We’ve often felt like Kurt, overworked, lonely and tired, with Skew reminding us that there will be fun and light at the end of this fulfillment center. I hope you all make The Last Worker your next instant purchase.”
“At the heart of it is the story of Kurt, someone who puts their job before everything else and we pick up as he, rather uncooperatively, is thrust into a scenario that requires him to take back control. From satisfying the daily quota, to moments of satire, stealth and a shootout, The Last Worker is always moving in a seamless flow of adventure and absurdist narrative.” said Ryan Bousfield, Creative Director at Wolf & Wood.
