What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I wanted to make a fun and unique game that the community would love (as well as myself) and I feel that New Hire is playable enough in its current stage to bring enjoyment to players. Making it available earlier will allow me to get input from players and make New Hire the best and most fun it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm estimating that it will be less than a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game is planned to have multiple days at work, different jobs, and new locations besides the warehouse. In its current state, you complete one shift in the warehouse and there are many endings to achieve.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of New Hire has most of the mechanics in place and allows you to go through an entire shift at the warehouse. There are a little over a dozen endings to achieve and loads of clues scattered about as to what happened to your co-workers and why.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game will increase as it expands in scope. There will likely be one price increase during Early Access and another at release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I want to hear what everyone thinks and what they wish to see in the game! If it's feasible and fits the theme, I'll add it. I'll also take any other complaints or suggestions into consideration and adjust the game to make it more fun for everyone. Through the Steam community and Discord, players will be able to help direct the course of the game!”

About This Game

It's your first day at a new job. Everyone else apparently quit and the place seems quite haunted, but it doesn't matter. You've got bills to pay. Pack boxes, drive a forklift, avoid ghosts, and do your best to stay alive. There's even a promise of a pizza party. Not so bad for your first day.

Do as you are told and finish your job to get that paycheck you so desperately need.

Or wander off the main floor and piece together what happened in the warehouse.

Just be careful as you wander, things seem harmless at first but can quickly become dangerous.

Will you be a good little worker and follow orders?

Or will you explore where you shouldn't and try to figure out what's going on?

With over a dozen endings to find (and many, many more planned), the choice is yours. Just watch your back, okay?

New Hire blends simulation and tense horror as you try to finish your overnight shift in a factory. Terrors lurk in the darkness and you have to keep your wits about you as you pack and deliver packages to get that sweet, sweet paycheck. Staying on the path laid out before you and doing your job will keep the dangers to a minimum while exploring the warehouse will help you figure out exactly what happened to your co-workers, but draws unwanted attention to yourself.
