The Last Worker will tackle complicated themes such as automation and dehumanization when it lands on Switch in 2022. The game, which comes from Wired Productions, Oiffy, and Wolf & Wood, builds a gameplay experience out of “a unique blend of first-person narrative, work simulation and stealth strategy.” The Last Worker places much emphasis on its story, themes, and delivery, utilizing an “all-star cast” to deliver it effectively. Behind strong early impressions, the game earned a nomination for a Golden Lion in the VR Expanded category at the 78th Venice International Film Festival. In the trailer below, you can familiarize yourself with the game and get a first look at the carefully crafted visuals.
The Last Worker clearly has a lot of thought and care poured into its design. Of course, its story will need to deliver for a lot of that to be worthwhile. Hopefully, the narrative hits all the right notes and gives the Switch another must-have indie adventure when it launches on the hybrid platform next year.
