Kongregate & FoxNext Games Launch ‘Office Space: Idle Profits’ Mobile Game(April 19, 2017)
SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FoxNext Games and Kongregate, a leading publisher of mobile, PC, and web games, today launched Office Space: Idle Profits for free on iOS & Android devices to save you from suffering through another “case of the Mondays.” Ultrabit, a Kongregate subsidiary known for their work on the hit mobile titles Pocket Politics and Raid Brigade, developed the idle mobile game based on the cult film.
Based on Mike Judge’s cult classic about office culture and “sticking it to the man,” Office Space: Idle Profits takes players back to the era of Y2K, cubicles, and TPS reports. It combines the popular characters from the film including Michael Bolton, Lumbergh, and of course Milton and his red swingline stapler with a traditional idle, or clicker, game.
Players will start the game as a lowly Initech corporate drone that's about to be replaced by a recent college graduate. They’ll team up with fellow disgruntled workers Peter, Samir, & Michael Bolton to install a virus on Initech’s mainframe that siphons undetectable pennies from each department. As players make money they will unlock new departments within Initech and classic characters from the cult film.
“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.”
