Scathing first-person cultural commentary The Last Worker is primed and ready for dispatch, ahead of its scheduled delivery on 30th March. The title – coming to PS5 with full, optional PSVR2 support – promises a narrative adventure centred upon “humanity’s struggle in an increasingly automated world”.
The press release explains: “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 [Judge Dredd] comics legend Mick McMahon and unique, immersive gameplay mechanics, seamlessly interwoven into a narrative game like no other.”
Writer and director Jörg Tittel added: “Just as the pandemic has made us all dependent on home deliveries, it took us a whole pandemic to deliver this game. We've often felt like [protagonist] Kurt: overworked, lonely, and tired, with [robot companion] Skew reminding us that there will be fun and light at the end of this fulfilment centre. I hope you all make The Last Worker your next instant purchase.”
While you’ll be able to purchase the game from the PS Store, a physical version will also be made available, featuring a reversible sleeve, some stickers, and a double-sided poster. You can check out a new trailer embedded above for a better idea of what to expect come launch.
