Ant Workshop have announce their new game, Dead End Job, will be coming to Xbox One in February 2018, and it’ll be publicly playable for the first time at EGX Rezzed in London later this month.
Dead End Job merges the frantic, addictive, highly 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. 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.
Have you got what it takes to be the best at putting pests to rest?
Dead End Job features stunning cartoon-quality high resolution artwork by Joe Blakeston (Aardman, BBC and RSC), inspired by favourites like Ren & Stimpy. As well as an original soundtrack by the award-winning audio designer Will Morton (Grand Theft Auto series). The addition of Twitch integration allows viewers to help or hinder the streamer by choosing their power-ups.
