In case you missed our previous roundup, here is a quick overview and a very comprehensive list of features:
The Company Man is a classic action platformer inspired by the popular American TV series The Office. You play as Jim, a young employee who works for the Good Water Company. Dissatisfied with the way the company is run, Jim sets out to topple his boss and become CEO. Launch email attacks against colleagues using a powerful keyboard, run and jump between departments from HR to marketing, power up with coffee beans and show them who’s boss!
