Office jobs look like hell in survival horror Yuppie Psycho

So this is what happens in offices

When people tell me working from home must be great, they don't expect me to rave about the delights of office chairs, office coffee machines, office clothes, and office deskmates on the rare occasions I've done freelance odd jobs in offices. Mate, I'd love to work in an office. No, from the looks on their faces, their idea of offices must match up fairly well with those in Yuppie Hell [official site]. It's an upcoming survival horror RPG about a chap starting a new job at a huge corporation which, turns out, is cursed by a witch. That'll be why the photocopier is crawling around on four giant hands.

Turns out, your new job at this mysterious megacorp is to hunt the witch who once boosted the corp but now, well, have you seen their photocopiers?

Developers Baroque Decay - who you might know for their Alec-exciting last game, The Count Lucanor - explain:

"Set in a dystopian 90’s with shades of cyberpunk, the player will have to break into and investigate the secrets hidden deep within the heart of Sintracorp. Avoiding traps, solving puzzles, exploring, and utilizing stealth to avoid the creatures swarming the company along the way."

They say it's got a bit of 16-bit RPG, a smidgen of Silent Hill, a dash of Deadly Premonition, and an inkling of Junji Ito.

Yuppie Psycho is due to launch some time in 2017. It's currently trying to reach Steam through Steam Greenlight.
