Enterprising developer Free Lives and their overbearing publisher Devolver Digital have announced Stick it to the Stickman, a practical guide for hands-on management-type industry rockstars seeking to climb the corporate ladder in the fastest way possible.

A leaked company memo indicates that applications for aspiring interns will open in 2023.

Stick it to the Stickman is a groin-kicking, staple-gunning, chainsaw-wielding roguelike brawler loaded with high-impact, physics-based combat, copious amounts of coffee and weaponised farts!

Batter your way through compliant coworkers, menial middle-management and brutal bosses, learning more powerful “business techniques” on your way to becoming CEO of the worst company in America.

Attack is the best form of defence in business, and it’s kill or be killed. Pick up powerful upgrades and HR-approved weaponry to ensure your Stickman is more than just a yes-man.

Your career trajectory isn’t just vertical! Incorporate new subsidiary companies to squeeze out the competition, with each acquisition offering new gameplay, new enemies, new bosses, new weapons and more! Build a conglomerate that rules the marketplace and dominates our hearts.

Stick it to the Stickman’s corporate dystopian setting, with clever yet harrowing gags about the future under capitalism, is sure to raise a smile at next year’s company retreat.

Queue up for your first taste of the rat race at PAX West, September 2 to 6 2022.
