About This Game



Dead End Job sends you into a madcap, Ren & Stimpy-esque world to bust up ghosts. It’s a procedurally generated, couch co-op, twin-stick shooter that straps a vacuum pack to your back, and puts a plasma blaster in your hand. For you, it’s just another day in the office.

  • Exorcise restaurants, offices and other buildings.
  • Use a plasma blaster, your trusty vacuum pack and a whole range of supernatural items.
  • Save your mentor's soul or she'll spend eternity as a spook (voted “Least Preferred Fate” in Ghost Hunter Monthly).
  • So many ghosts.
  • A madcap story written by IGF nominee Xalavier Nelson Jr
  • Drop in/drop out couch co-op, as your mentor appears to lend a hand!
  • Stunning cartoon-quality artwork inspired by 90’s favourites like Ren & Stimpy.
  • Actually, maybe too many ghosts?
  • Featuring original music by the award-winning Will Morton (Grand Theft Auto series).
  • Twitch and Mixer integration allows viewers to help or hinder the streamer.
  • Seriously, can someone please get rid of all of these ghosts?



Please note that Dead End Job supports mouse & keyboard controls for single player, but couch co-op requires at least one player to use a controller.

Familiar Haunts

You take on the role of Hector Plasm, a worker at Ghoul-B-Gone – ‘the Number One experts in paranormal pest control’ – as you’re tasked with heading to haunted offices, restaurants, and other everyday buildings before freeing them of unwanted guests. One minute you're sucking up specters, the next you're sucking up to your bosses, chasing that promotion.
Have you got what it takes to be the best at putting pests to rest?

Don’t Suck… Well, Actually Do

Exercise that fighting spirit, since every specter you snag and every resident you rescue is added to your client’s bill at the end of the job. Haunted by the ghost of your mentor, quite literally, you must learn the ropes and to save her soul before she’s forced to spend eternity as a spook (voted “Least Preferred Fate” in Ghost Hunter Monthly).

Kindred Spirits

Play alone or bust ghosts with a buddy in drop in / drop out co-op that works seamlessly within the main adventure. Plus you can play to an audience with Twitch and Mixer interactivity that allows viewers to help or hinder your assault on the afterlife.

Ghost Writer

Do you love 90's cartoons? Yeah, so do we, and we grew up on their stretchy squishy gross-out laughs. Our love for them spills over into the game like so much ectoplasm. See every nose hair in wacky, vibrant art that brings everyday items to life as screwball spooks to suck up. To top it off, the entire adventure is backed by music from the award-winning Will Morton (Grand Theft Auto series).
