East Side Games is going to the office.
The subsidiary of LEAF Mobile has announced their next free-to-play mobile title, The Office: Somehow We Manage, inspired by the U.S. version of NBC’s The Office.
Launching worldwide later this year, the new game will let fans play through hilarious moments from the critically-acclaimed Emmy award winning comedy, where they’ll tap their way to record profits at Dunder Mifflin, and get down to business with Scranton officemates Michael Scott, Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Kelly Kapoor, Dwight Schrute, and Stanley Hudson.
In the game, regional manager Michael Scott needs to improve the Scranton branch’s performance to avoid downsizing – easier said than done when Jim won’t stop pranking Dwight, Dwight won’t stop complaining about Jim, and Stanley won’t stop doing crossword puzzles.
Look out, though; at the end of each business day, Corporate takes their share of the money. Sorry, Michael, it’s back to work at the office tomorrow. But don’t worry, any upgrades built stay with players as they progress in the game, and players will be earning more in-game rewards before they know it.
“The opportunity to bring the five-time Primetime Emmy award-winning TV comedy series The Office to mobile in our trademark idle-game style is an honor for us here at LEAF,” said Darcy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of LEAF. “We’re looking forward to sharing this new experience in with everyone from new audiences to Dunder Mifflin diehards.”
“The Office continues to bring joy to new and longtime superfans, and the upcoming launch of The Office: Somehow We Manage demonstrates our commitment to offering new and authentic ways to engage with one of the most celebrated TV comedies of all time,” said Jim Molinets, VP of Production, Universal Games and Digital Platforms.
“The game is reflective of the show’s signature humor, quirky characters and memorable storylines, and will deliver an exciting interactive experience for players to enjoy for a long time to come.”
