We re-teamed with Ultrabit, the creators of Kong favorites Raid Brigade and Pocket Politics, and FOXNext Games to bring Mike Judge’s 1999 cult film to the small screen in Office Space: Idle Profits, available for free today on iOS and Android. Now office workers around the world can tap tap tap their way to an early retirement and really stick it to The Man... LUMBERGH.
“I uh, I don't like my job, and, uh, I don't think I'm gonna go anymore.”
You’ll start the game as a lowly Initech worker trying to make ends meet when you learn of your impending layoff. You decide to strike first and team up with Peter, Samir, and Michael Bolton to devise a virus that steals pennies from different departments within the company. As you upload the virus to each department, you’ll unlock new floors to infect, and start saving for your early retirement.
“Looks like you’ve been missing a lot of work lately.”
“I wouldn't say I’ve been missing it, Bob!”
As you continue your quest for revenge, you’ll collect and upgrade all your favorite characters from the film including the Bobs and Milton. Strategically assign them to each department and take advantage of their unique skills. Once you’ve made all the money you can imagine, exchange your cash for travelers checks, pack up your red swingline stapler, and burn down the building to cover your crime. Then start all over again, but with more and faster rewards.
“I just stare at my desk, but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch, too. I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.”
“Everyone, at least once, has felt underappreciated at their job,” said Cooper Bachman, General Manager at Ultrabit. “When we started working on Office Space, everyone on the development team knew we were onto something special. Even 18 years later, the film’s themes are still relatable to all ages. And when we paired the film’s story and hilarious cast of characters with idle mechanics, it fit incredibly well.”
