Dead End Job, a new twin-stick shooter styled like a 90s cartoon, will launch in February 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, indie developer Ant Workshop has announced.
The game promises to merge the frantic, replayable gameplay of a procedurally generated twin-stick shooter with the iconic look of a 90s cartoon.
“You take on the role of a worker at Ghoul-B-Gone – the #1 experts in paranormal pest control,” explains the blurb. “Ghosts are captured using a tug-of-war mechanic and every ghost you catch, citizen rescued, and job completed is added to the client’s bill. Every week in-game you’re competing against the company golden boy for the coveted “Employee of the Week star” based on the amount of money you earned.”
Twitch integration will make it possible for viewers to help or hinder the streamer by choosing their power-ups.
Dead End Job will be publicly playable for the first time at Gamer Network’s EGX Rezzed in London from March 30 to April 1.
