Funny premise and music is unique, but overall, this game is awful.

Shallow mechanics, limited range and direction of animations (ie: attacking) brings little depth to gameplay.

I could see a sequel of this, but with a much better effort behind it (animations, mechanics, programming a better game in general).

Great 8-bit style game with a hint of Sword and Sworcery in the characters, with the axonomietric layout of XCom, and the fast paced running and gunning of Hotline Miami. What is missing is Steam Achievements integration as that would really add another dimension to gameplay, such as trying to achieve the mission whilst getting a certain number of kills etc. plus due to the humour of the game I could see numerous funny achievements being applied.

I was expecting something about a guy going postal and killing all his coworkers. Instead it's about a discount Seth Rogan saving his coworkers from zombies. I mean, it would be the same gameplay either way, but the route they took was extremely lighthearted. I mean, everything about the game is lighthearted and it just feels good to play.

Also, the music's great.

Also also sometimes it crashes :(

Really buggy and hasn't been updated since 2014.
A bit easy, since everything goes down nice and quick.
Most hits don't register, whether on me or on someone else.
10/10 Best game.

Mmmmm yea, Im gonna need you to come in this weekend and kill some zombies...
What a great game! Takes place mostly in a cubicle farm where you rescue your daring coworkers to defeat all the corporate zombies to make it out alive! Works great with a controller for racking up zed heads. The game looks simple or retro, Don't let that fool you! The environments are entirely destructable, there are bosses, and TONS of weapons, including the mythical red swingline stapler!

It's like tongue-in-cheek old school Syndicate combined with Hotline Miami set in the world of Fight Club and Office Space.

Actual line from this game:
"I came here to kick ♥♥♥ and chew bubblegum. And I'm all out of gum because, seriously, who the ♥♥♥♥ chews bubblegum anymore. Like, I haven't seen bubblegum since, like, the 80s. And even if I still saw bubblegum, I'm a 30-year-old man. I'm not gonna chew bubblegum. That's just... That's just... *sigh*"

Some people like their jobs. Some people don't. And some people's jobs get overrun by zombie businessmen that groan things they learned in business school. Okay not a lot of people have had that experience in particular but that's what this game revolves around so just use your imagination.

This game is very fun in its own unique way. It straight up pokes fun at people not liking their desk jobs and making it very relatable and silly at the same time. The voice acting sounds like it can use a lot of work but they put that in the game for a reason (watch the trailer and you'll see what I mean). Sure there are some things that could use work but it's still a fun, fast-paced, adventurous game with a lot of potential to become somthing more than it is currently. But don't let that stop you from having a good time.

To conclude, I leave you with this:
There are boss zombies (yes, there are boss fights) that will show you brain-damaging powerpoints, breathe fire, shoot guns, and even turn into magic floating sandwiches.

If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is. You have to try this game yourself.

First impression: Well, the voice acting isn't that great. But the premise is pretty funny. Gameplay is a very simple isometric beat'em'up. Oh damn, this soundtrack... MMfff. Okay, that's pretty good. That's making beating corporate zombie ♥♥♥ just that much sweeter. Aw man, you recruit NPC people as you walk around? That's kinda cool to lead a herd of I guess what you would call your "buddies" as you battle through the zombie hordes.
2nd level: Lawl, the writing is a bit hit or miss, but It's pretty funny. I enjoy how you are rewarded between levels with a small skit of very home-hitting corporate life humor that's a nice touch to drive the player through the gameplay. I'll admit, the action of rampaging around the office and laying into corporate zombies is pretty fun. Watching my sprite hop over desks and wreck the office as he moves is fairly satisfying. But by the second level, the gameplay is already getting a little repetitive.
3rd level+: Listening to the zombies moan corporate buzzwords is also a pretty fun touch. The enemies are not seeing a whole lot of variation besides adding zombies with slightly more health to the mix each level. Also, I found a red Swingline Stapler and am using it as a weak projectile weapon. I also found a corded phone that I'm using as a morning star.

Overall impression: This is a fun little beat'em'up with stat tracking that will please the completionist in me, plenty of awesome theme humor keeps me giggling as I play, and a pumping chiptune soundtrack complements the frantic arcade action well. This title was well worth what I paid for it.

"Fun for when you feel like killing your boss"

- Graphics 8/10
I think for this type of game the graphics suit it very well, this ofcourse is my opinion.

- Storyline 7/10
The game has some story to it, not much of it though. I still enjoyed it quite a bit. It could have been improved a little, but what kind of story can you expect from a game where you can throw pencils and staples.

- Gameplay 9/10
The gameplay of the game just feels amazing, there are so many available options of how you want to kill the zombies its insane! You can kill them by just maning up and hiting them with your fists or just go out on a rampage shooting staples, shotguns, pencils, handguns or even ninja stars! Why not a 10 out of 10 you ask? (I know you do) Because there are some areas in the map where you just get stuck in debree or get glitched out of the map and can't get back in. The game also had a nice touch where at the end of each level you see how much damage you did to the level, how many zombies you killed or how many survivors you rescued.

Controls 10/10
I didn't find any problems with the controls of the game, the default wasd to move and left click to shoot. Switch between weapons with the num-pad or just scroll. Perfectly normal.

A.I. 5/10
It's zombie A.I. how can you screw it up, right?
It's acceptable, but not good. The zombies tend to form flocks of sandbags that do nothing.

Final Verdict 8/10
Enjoy it, Love it, Beat it.

A deep combat system, deep original story line, and beautiful graphics; this game has none of those. What it does have is office after office filled with management 'zombies' tied together with brief conversations with pre-corpse coworkers. It involves a lot of spaming left click and switching to another weapon when you want some range or appearance change. The perk is that you get to beat the stupid out of mindless idiots who spout off about paradigms, working smarter and other business school catch phrases. I would like to go on talking about it further, but CorporateLifestyleSimulator.exe has stopped working.

I happen to work in Corporate IT and this game is very realistic. Not sure who the devs are, but they are very smart people.

10/10 Must have

On a side note, if you are a manager in a corporation, you should probably not play this - it might actaully make you realise how pointless and horrible your life is.

I like this game. It's puerile wish-fulfillment, and I can dig that. Especially as a dude who works in an office. Synergy!

Am I PROUD to like this game? I am not. Will I recommend it anyway? Yes I will.

The title may be misleading when you see one of your friends playing it, and you just assume it's some sort of just regular boring desk job where you push pencils and type words on your fancy worky work machine but you would be ENORMOUSLY wrong!

This game is pretty hilarious and has lots of entertaining chatter as well as scenarios and it's own style.If you enjoy murdering zombies, hate boss like personas and want make a difference in your job , this is the game for you!
