My name is Jörg Tittel, writer and director on The Last Worker. Together with Ryan Bousfield and his wonderful team of developers at Wolf & Wood, and publisher Wired Productions, I’m delighted to show Xbox players the first glimpse of gameplay from our narrative adventure coming later this year.
In our brand-new trailer, CEO Josef Jüngle takes us on a tour of JFC-1, the flagship fulfilment center servicing the billions of customers of the Jüngle Corporation (whose resemblance to real world corporations is purely coincidental of course). After all – like all leading online retailers – Jüngle has nothing to hide.
Our new trailer offers a sneak peek of the people, the technology, and the high-tech computer algorithms at the centre of Jüngle, with boxes piled as high as skyscrapers. Players will soon be able to experience first-hand Jüngle’s promise that the future can in fact be delivered today.
Dispatching to Xbox later in 2022, The Last Worker is a first-person character and gameplay driven narrative adventure centred around humanity’s struggle in an increasingly automated world, where people are progressively being replaced by robots.
I’ve been lucky to work with the greatest creative team money can’t buy, e.g. composer Oliver Kraus known for his collaborations with Sia, Adele, Florence and the Machine and others and legendary comic artist Mick McMahon (Judge Dredd), whose character designs and concepts we have been working hard to bring to life in immersive, hand painted 3D. Along with these unique visuals, our characters are performed by an all-star cast including Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Jason Isaacs, Clare-Hope Ashitey and David Hewlett… and a couple of actors we’ll save for a future unboxing!
I hope you enjoy the screenshots. Please give @TheLastWorker, @wolfandwood and @wiredp a follow on Twitter and stay up to date on the way to launch!
