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 :(

Corporate Lifestyle Simulator is a fun pixel based game about taking on the zombie managers of the world. There are two modes. Story and Endless.

1) Story

There are about 23 levels in this game. It starts out hard, but over time gets easier. Like alot easier. The shotgun is the main reason for this since it does 120 damage (like a 1 to 3 shot kill, and you get it by like level 8), Boss fights are also easy (outside of the first one, the I.T. one, and Zombietron). I thought it was also funny, with great banter (LAPD part was funny af). overall the story was alright.

2) Endless Mode

Kind of boring, very easy. I like how its not kill based, but time based, so more zombies spawn every 30 seconds even if al zombies are not dead.

Verdict: While i like this game, I cannot recomend for full price (five bucks for this is redonk), Buy on sale (49 cents). If you are looking for pixel Zombie games, then checkout dead pixel. It blows this game out of the water and is cheaper

I decided to buy this because it was 49 cents. One of the best buys for less than 5 bucks ever. This game is amazing and SO addictive. If you want a time killer or something that makes you want to work in an office this is a perfect game for you. It's better than the tank dating sim. Yes, it's that good.

Have you ever thought "Its only 4.99,It wont be much fun" then just went into a 2 hour coffee break for playing too long? This is that type of game.

TL;DR Version:Amazeballs,Even for what i would call a "school project".


Actual Version:
This game amused and amazed me a ton! I got it for 49 cents (IN USD) for the "WEEK LONG DEAL!",and i have to say,0.49 USD well spent.

Graphics:
Im a sucker for Pixel-Graphics,just check my library,no really,check it now. No,ill wait,check it now,for 10 seconds.
Oh my god! Did you see how many pixel games i have? I am such a sucker for them. Anyways,back on topic,the game is,if you havn't watched the trailer,a Pixel-graphic shooter. And,if you checked my library,you'd know i love those types of games.
Graphics rating:9.5/10

Sounds:
Sound is a bit buggy,to me at least. The music normally crashed,and the music and constant ability to smash things are louder than the zombies and Dude (The hero,Protagonist,or player in the game). Other than that,they are pretty good,and fit the atmosphere perfectly. Speaking of atmosphere...
Sounds rating:7/10

Atmosphere:
For the name,the atmosphere is pretty accurate. The office looks well polished,the pixel love for filing cabinets is great,and there are sadly no fish tanks,but hey,sacrifices are meant to be made.
Atmosphere rating:8.9/10

Jokes♥♥♥♥♥♥ences:Dude makes a lot of jokes and references,whether its a song,or a quote he's going to say "Its time to kick ♥♥♥ and chew bubblegum,and im all out of bubblegum. Who even chews bubblegum anymore? Thats like,the 80's. Im 30 anyways,im not gonna chew bubblegum" at least once in your playthrough. The most obvious joke would be that they call the offices workers "zombies" (which they are)
J/R rating:9.9/10

Gameplay:Game is fun,and i would love a damn sequel. Is there really more to ask?
Gameplay rating:10/10

Weapons:Zombies have hands,and for some reason,you,an average office worker,have fists, a baseball bat,a chainsaw,a pistol,a sword,a shotgun,Molotov's,a burner and lighter,a fire axe,a fire extinguisher,an uzi,a tazer,a phone with the phone line,and a bit more.
Weapons rating:9/10

Overall rating:9.7/10
Thats technically a 97%,or the equivalent to an A,the only problem i see is the sound.

Playing this game just brings a smile on my face, honest smile, and laughter.

Something triple A games are failing with horribly. Is that not what matters in the end with GAMES? To have fun and enjoy yourself?

Give this game a go, it is completely worth 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.

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!

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.

Price at time of purchase: $1.24 USD
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.

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.

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!

Corporate Life Simulator is a joyful little game, but it feels a bit wasteful to spend money on. The game is basically an isometric pixel twin stick shooter but the point of the game is to be a bit of a mild satire. It certainly doesn’t come close to the laugh out loud writing of South Park SoT but the theme is clever and it’ll put a smile on your face hearing zombie upper management using buzzwords. Regardless, it feels like a game you could easily find for free on a flash game website. If you’ve got a spare dollar or two hanging out in your steam wallet and catch this game on sale then it’s alright, but I still haven’t decided if I regret my purchase or not. A VERY cautious recommendation.

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.

7 Co-workers, and 147 middle managers.
Just like in real life.

But seriously, it's a tongue-in-cheek, casual twinstick rompastomp game. 1h felt like 10 mins.

Oh, and the fire extinguisher spreads flames, rather than subjugates them. use wiht discretion.

Controls are simple, it would be nice to have a 1-level tutorial though. sound is passable, but I felt it was too high on it's default setting.

Voice acting is very good and the scripting is perfect for the game.
"this manager is eating my face! we've worked together in the same cubicle for 7 years... won't you avenge me?" "Um, no, sorry. I've got to get this report done".
