About The Company Man
The Company Man is a classic side-scrolling action platformer. The game’s setting, and even the main character’s name, is clearly evocative of the popular TV series The Office. You play as Jim, a young salaryman starting out at the Good Water Company. Unsatisfied with how the company is run, Jim sets out to overthrow his boss and become the CEO. Battle your way up the corporate ladder by launching email attacks against coworkers with a powerful keyboard. Run and jump across departments from Human Resources to Marketing. Boost up with coffee beans, and show your boss who’s boss!
