Watch The Last Worker “Capitalist vs. Activist” Launch Trailer:
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. Created from the ground up to deliver both VR and flat-packed experiences, the game combines a hand-crafted art style created in collaboration with comics legend Mick McMahon (Judge Dredd, 2000 AD) and unique, immersive gameplay mechanics, seamlessly interwoven into a narrative game like no other.
The Last Worker was the only game in competition at the 78th Venice International Film Festival (2021) and 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 (Riviera, Children of Men), David Hewlett (The Shape of Water, Oddworld New’n’Tasty), Zelda Williams (The Legend of Korra) and Tommie Earl Jenkins (Death Stranding, Wednesday). The Last Worker is scored by Oliver Kraus, known for his collaborations with the likes of Adele, Sia, and Florence and the Machine.
“Making The Last Worker has been a long and hard journey but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.” Said Writer and Director, Jörg Tittel, whose company, Oiffy, is also producing the game. “I got to work with the magicians at Wolf & Wood, the legendary Mick McMahon, bring composer Oliver Kraus and opera star Jakub Józef Orliński together and direct the finest actors under the sun. It’s tough to make something original but all these talented friends have made it feel natural. I hope our game will spark conversation and – most importantly – bring fun and joy.”
“It has been a joy building the vibrant-dystopia of The Last Worker.” Said Ryan Bousfield, Creative Director at Wolf & Wood. “We aim to surprise the player at every turn, with a satirical adventure, filled with varied gameplay, unusual missions, narrative twists and a foul mouthed robot.”
“Videogames are a great vehicle for escapism, having fun, enjoying art and the narrative, but sometimes, just sometimes, there is a game that comes with a great message.” Said Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions. “Wired don’t shy away from games with strong messages and The Last Worker has this in abundance!”
Players can also support capitalism by ordering the Jüngle Pronto physical edition. Packed with a reversible sleeve, Jüngle stickers and a double-sided poster, fans can grab a copy from the likes of Amazon (not awkward) at just £19.99 / $24.99 / €24.99 for the PlayStation 5 version and £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99 for Nintendo Switch.
