The Last Worker - Promo

Publisher Wired Productions, Writer/Director and comic creator Jörg Tittel and pioneering independent games studio Wolf & Wood have announced that first-person narrative adventure The Last Worker, featuring design work by 2000AD artist Mick McMahon, will come to PC first, launching on Steam, Epic Games Store and GOG on 19th October 2022.

Both Jörg Tittel and Mick McMahon are guests at the upcoming Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Bowness-in-Windermere (14th – 16th October 2022), where they will be discussing the game’s development and delivery.

Set in Jüngle Fulfillment Center 1, the largest retail facility on Earth, The Last Worker is a first-person narrative adventure centered around humanity’s struggle in an increasingly automated world, where humans are being replaced by robots.

The game combines a hand-crafted art style created in collaboration with comics legend Mick McMahon (“Judge Dredd”, 2000AD) and unique, immersive gameplay mechanics, seamlessly interwoven into a narrative game like no other.

The Last Worker delivers an emotional, thought-provoking story filled with rich characters performed by an all-star cast including Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, Star Trek: Discovery), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (The Meg, True Detective), Clare-Hope Ashitey (Children of Men), David Hewlett (The Shape of Water), Zelda Williams (The Legend of Korra) and Tommie Earl Jenkins (Death Stranding).

The Last Worker is scored by Oliver Kraus, known for his collaborations with the likes of Adele, Sia, and Florence and the Machine.

Watch The Last Worker PC Release Date Trailer 

The official PC release date trailer gives insight into the lonely, oppressive, yet strangely beautiful setting of JFC-1. Featuring gameplay footage of our protagonist, Kurt, aboard his corporate issued JünglePod set against a ‘motivational’ speech by CEO Josef Jüngle reminding players that customer satisfaction is what holds the Jüngle Family together, whatever the cost.

“I never thought I’d turn into Kurt, but after spending over two years mostly working from home, I feel his pain. Thankfully The Last Worker is much more fun than our real-life dystopia”, said Writer, Director Jörg Tittel, whose company, Oiffy, is producing the game.

“It is a unique setting, with a colourful mix of retro-futurism but it is also a working facility, the WorkerBots are carrying out their day-to-day dispatches or patrolling the No-Go-Zones. The team have come up with all kinds of creative solutions to bring this hand-drawn world to life.”, said Ryan Bousfield, Creative Director of Wolf & Wood.

“With Christmas being such a big season for certain retailers, we wanted people to have the opportunity to truly digest the important message conveyed in The Last Worker well ahead of time.” Said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “Get ready to fight the establishment!”
