"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.

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.

What you see is what you get, basically...and that's a good thing!

Have you ever wanted to punch your workmates? You can.
Have you ever wanted beat your workmates off with a bat? You can.
Have you ever wanted to extinguish that fire in your workmate's pants? You can.
Have you ever wanted to say "it's for you" while whacking off your workmates with a telephone? You can
Have you ever wanted to TASE your workmates while they scream DON'T TASE ME BRO? You can

Coffee is your lifeblood.
Everything is breakable.
ALL your managers are out to kill you, that one guy from accounting, Tech Support, the dude in the cubicle across the aisle from you AND that one chick in reception that you've wanted to ♥♥♥♥ since your first day on the job.
YOU are the only hope left.
Your name is Dude and you are all that stands between your co-workers and certain death.
GO TASE THEM BRO!

12/10 would staple again

It is games like this that make me wish Steam had a "neither recommended nor not recommended" option. First off, the main menu looks like something out of a bad flash game, it defaults to windowed mode (and crashes when going to fullscreen), the humor is poorly delivered, the voice acting is... ok but way too quiet compared to all the rest of the sounds, some of the weapons are near impossible to use (main example being the chainsaw), and the story I feel was poorly thought out.

The good things I have to say about this game is that the music is really good, and the combat is almost fun but there are so many junk weapons that it quickly becomes a hasstle. I think the combat really would have benefitted if the developers had gone with "quality over quantity", making some weapons that are really fun to use instead of a bunch of weapons that don't really feel right. Also, in some areas the environment is too cluttered so it is hard to see the zombies.

The boss battles are ok, but range from annoying zombies that take a few more shots to kill to being complete bullet sponges where it really becomes a matter of patience more than anything. "Endless mode" is really where I was expecting to get the most enjoyment, but of course it suffers from the same combat problems I mentioned before, plus new zombies spawning in is poorly implemented, droping in suddenly causing you to take damage from no fault of your own.

Overall, this is a good game if you just want to waste an hour or two, but I would never waste my money on it. The soundtrack *maybe*, but if you really want the game sell a few things on the Steam Market and wait for it to go on sale.

If "The Office" or "The IT Crowd" added a gigantic zombie invasion and no censorship, they would look a lot like Corporate Lifestyle Simulator. The game is short but sweet, and includes some great zombie killing, plus cut-scenes and in-level voice acting that is actually funny! Although I would've liked some Steam Achivements thrown into the mix, even without them, Corporate Lifestyle Simulator is well worth a look.

"Can I borrow your chainsaw?" "No you can't borrow my chainsaw!"
These people get me. Pixels. Check. Zambies. Check. Explosions. Check. Terrible but funny voice acting. Check.

Well I think you get the idea.
All im saying is that its a great game. So get it now. Its only 5 bucks (unless its on sale while your reading this).

It seems a pretty fun concept. Until you realize the keyboard doesn't work right. Then you try with a gamepad, moving is easier but the buttons don't all seem to work right and there's no sane way to map which buttons do what. It might be a good game in the future, but the controls need some serious polish before I'd recommend anybody get this.

A fun game to play if you are bored and just need something to do, With the new music player on steam the sound track is definitely worth a purchase on its own without the game 36 songs and as far as I can see they are all pretty good.

The game itself is pretty decent, the way the people look is slightly strange as everyone looks like they have been in the local fast food place for a little too long, whether it is a way at looking at the obese population of society or just the people not being too good at making people you tell me, that doesn't really take away from the game at all and it is still enjoyable, the cutscenes between the levels are kind of awkward to watch as the voice acting isn't the best in the world but some of it is quite amusing to watch, if this bugs you you can skip them and get to the action quicker.

Wide variety of weapons available and with power ups appearing now and again to make it more enjoyable (flamethrowing chainsaw...I think yes) some ranged some melee so it does give you an option on how to play.

I personally bought the game on sale for £1.24 (Soundtrack edition) I would say the off sale price for the soundtrack is worth it more than the game but that is just an opinion. I would say if you don't have a powerful machine to run a lot of games at a solid 30 and suffer from frame drops (me currently) it is a decent game to pick up. If you also don't have tons of money as well as this I would suggest putting this game on the list

aaahhhh, so satisfying man. This, Payday 2, and Hotline Miami are my jam for therapeutic anti-capitalist ultraviolence. This really gives me hope for the video game industry since good wholesome anti-social fantasies can be realized with over the top irony, a total lack of taste and great electro house music.

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!

Rating: 10/10 Value: $7.99

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.

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!

I'd like to preface this by saying this game does have potential. It just needs a bit of fleshing out.

There isn't much substance to the game at current; it lacks any big RPG elements that keep you hooked to other games of this genre. It's just running around killing zombies and ♥♥♥♥, as if that isn't commonplace enough. So this game tries to shine in other areas.

The humor, at times, can be quite witty. The origin of the zombies is especially funny and the pre-level dialogue definitely gave me a few hearty chuckles.

However, the main character (aptly named "Dude") is often set up in situations reminiscient of third grade lunchtable comedy. You know, when you have to basically set up the scene with your words and then pantomime everything. (The sandwich level cutscene definitely shows this)

It's like saying, "Imagine I'm in a bulldozer," then acting like you crash through the wall of the teacher's lounge to create comedy. It doesn't work. It's a juvenile sense of humor that I hate.

This is especially disappointing because the maker of this game obviously has the capacity to make some funny ♥♥♥♥, the delivery is just flat-out bad. The voice acting is, to the trailer's acknowledgement, also bad, which totally killed some of the funnier parts of the cutscenes. There are a few redeeming moments, but those are sparse throughout the 100 minutes it took me to beat the story mode. If you want a really funny, cheap game, you're better off playing Dungeons of Dredmor.

The one redeeming factor of this game is its soundtrack, one of the best I've ever heard. This game's music is definitely on par with something like Hotline Miami. If, despite my reccomendation, you still buy the game, get the soundtrack with it.

If you're really willing to shell out $5 to fulfill some fetish of yours, just buy the soundtrack available on Bandcamp. It's a better use of your money than playing through this game.
