A downloadable game for Windows

It’s the end of the world, but there’s also an important deadline coming up. If you want to keep your job, you’ll have to stay behind and pull some serious overtime! That's a sacrifice you're willing to make for a steady paycheck, right? Balance work, coffee, bathroom breaks, and not being eaten by zombies, in this corporate action shooter. Your goal is to finish all 20 jobs (blue).

You can play with mouse and keyboard, but we recommend using a gamepad. It’s a twin stick shooter:

  •  [WASD]/[L-Thumbstick] to move
  •  [Mouse]/[R-Thumbstick] to aim
  •  [LMB]/[R-Trigger] to shoot
  •  [RMB]/[L-Trigger] to interact

Made in made in 72 hours for the Ludum Dare Jam 43.
