The Company Man is a 2D action-adventure game. You will rebel against the corporate regime, use your trusted keyboard sword to fight through your crazy coworkers, and shoot your evil bosses with emails as you survive the struggles of working life and fulfill your lifelong quest to be CEO!
The Company Man is developed by Forust. Forust is an indie game studio from Malaysia created to create beautiful experiences told through the art of video games. The Company Man is the studio’s debut project and the only project since its founding in 2018.
The Company Man is a game that is as crazy as real life. It’s a game designed to spoof office culture. You recover health by drinking coffee. Forust has infused the game with quirky, silly animations that people can laugh at, and depict the current office departments.
The combat is crafted around positioning and timing with simple controls anyone can use. We spent time creating opportunities for the player to use the environment to contribute to the combat in a way that makes each moment unique and rewarding.
You can push your annoying coworkers off cliffs. The Company Man is a game we hope reflects our everyday beautiful, weird, and wacky 9-5 job.
You play as Jim. Jim finally graduates from university, ready to launch his epic career in the Good Water Company. But things quickly spiral into insanity as he finds himself fighting to avoid getting fired.
Jim must learn the quirks of each department, from the air-conditioned ice lands of accounting to the mountains of paperwork in human resources, beating every floor on his journey to the top.
While playing you will encounter new levels of the office that will take you to a new department, after your demotion on your first day, you will be working for the Customer Service, which is a bunch of colleagues that are so fed up that they breathe fire at you.
Also, this office is well known for its intern firings, by dropping them down a tube and having them explode on the ground, so watch out where you walk!
Take up the fight with your keyboard sword and beat your colleagues up, something almost everyone has dreamed of, working at an office.
Each department comes with a “boss”, or they might actually be a Manager. That you have to defeat to progress.
The first one actually looks a lot like Dwight from The Office. They all are unique and tied to the story and office life, so be sure to expect new combat moves anytime.
At the moment there aren’t any accessibility settings in the game, and unsure if this will be changed for the full game.
