A brand new trailer has been released for Ant Workshop and Headup Games' upcoming Switch title Dead End Job; we hope you're ready to (ghost) bust a move to this one.
The musical number above hopes to demonstrate exactly what players will be getting up to in the game, a procedurally-generated twin-stick shooter which sees you blasting and sucking up ghosts in equal measure. The trailer isn't all that's new, either, as we've also received this monstrously descriptive feature list for you to check out below:
You take on the role of Hector Plasm, a worker at Ghoul-B-Gone – ‘the Number One experts in paranormal pest control’ – as you’re tasked with heading to haunted offices, restaurants, and other everyday buildings before freeing them of unwanted guests. One minute you're sucking up specters, the next you're sucking up to your bosses, chasing that promotion.
Have you got what it takes to be the best at putting pests to rest?
Don’t Suck… Well, Actually Do
Exercise that fighting spirit, since every specter you snag and every resident you rescue is added to your client’s bill at the end of the job. Haunted by the ghost of your mentor, quite literally, you must learn the ropes and to save her soul before she’s forced to spend eternity as a spook (voted “Least Preferred Fate” in Ghost Hunter Monthly).
Play alone or bust ghosts with a buddy in drop in / drop out co-op that works seamlessly within the main adventure. Plus you can play to an audience with Twitch and Mixer interactivity that allows viewers to help or hinder your assault on the afterlife.
Do you love 90's cartoons? Yeah, so do we, and we grew up on their stretchy squishy gross-out laughs. Our love for them spills over into the game like so much ectoplasm. See every nose hair in wacky, vibrant art that brings everyday items to life as screwball spooks to suck up. To top it off, the entire adventure is backed by music from the award-winning Will Morton (Grand Theft Auto series).
Dead End Job is scheduled to launch on Nintendo Switch in Q2 2019. We recently shared another trailer for the game in a round-up of Headup Games titles coming to Switch this year - make sure to check it out if you're interested.
