ABOUT THIS GAME
First day at a new job? What a nightmare!
Join Brian Pasternack, a young man with no future in a dystopian 90s society, on his first day at one of the world’s largest companies, Sintracorp. Uncertain, unprepared, and massively unqualified, will Pasternack have what it takes to shine in Sintracorp’s hierarchy? It all depends on how he performs on his first assignment… and whether he survives it.
During his unconventional employee orientation, Pasternack discovers what his new job really entails: hunting a “witch” whose powers made the success of the corporation possible in the first place, but who now seems to have returned to torment its employees. Brian will meet all kinds of odd characters, escape from terrible creatures, and unravel the hidden secrets of Sintracorp’s dark past.
During Brian’s Time at Sintracorp, you will:
- Familiarize Yourself with Your Workspace: Use the elevator to discover who’s working and what’s lurking on every floor of Sintracorp.
- Learn Office Protocol: Learn when to chat, when to work, and when to cower in terror from otherworldly beings.
- Engage in Watercooler Conversation: Investigate your co-workers and discover their sordid, blood-soaked secrets.
- Consider your five-year goal: Only you can choose how this story will end, so make your decisions carefully!
- Assess health and safety: Use different light methods to light your path and reveal what is breathing in the dark.
- Conduct a Rigorous Personal Assessment: Find clues, solve riddles, discover new paths – all without letting the Witch catch you!
The developers describe the game’s content like this: Yuppie Psycho is a horror game that uses depictions of nightmarish perversions of reality to distress, scare, and alarm the player. Gore, violence, suicide, murder, and depression are present within the game.
I think that this game indeed combines the real anxiety of being at a new job, getting treated badly others and some twisted fantasy-horror elements that seem imaginary but we can see some Atlus’ Persona game vibes from it. The game’s art style is beautiful, the pace is nice, surprises are truly shocking and the story is great enough to have sympathy for the protagonist. The game’s tone is satirical yet pretty dark and depressing as we can relate some work related things to our real life workplaces too. The developer should be applauded for portraying the tragedies of today’s corporate work cultures form some bad companies in a creative, humorous and scary way.
Some Steam Curator Reviews:-
“Yuppie Psycho cynically satirize the soulless nature of the corporate world and does almost everything right for a psychological horror game – an interesting story, atmosphere, and characters await.” – Rely On Horror Steam
“Yuppie Psycho is one of the few survival horror games to keep me on the edge of my seat. Though occasionally bizarre and tonally strange, it has the all the makings of a great adventure.”- TechRaptor Steam
“Horror-comedy of dark humor that examines a cursed workplace 💼 about to break all HR Policies 💼 ” – The Horror Shop Steam
