There's something about corporate satire that hits differently during a pandemic. With many still working from home - something Going Under recently touched upon - that lack of socialising almost makes you miss the office at times. Almost. Thankfully(?), Studio Fizbin are here to remind us of that daily stress with Say No! More, now confirmed to launch on April 9th.
Calling this "the world’s first NPG (NO!-Playing Game)", this adventure offers a satirical take on office "Yes Man", taking aim at workplace standards and social etiquette. Published by Thunderful Publishing, they've outlined what to expect within this press statement:
In a world where everyone sticks to the status quo of saying “YES”, create your own custom character and take on the role of an intern on a mission to change the world with the positive power of “NO!”. With this new power nothing will get in your way as you shout “NO!” at any absurd requests fired your way.
Using simple controls designed for anyone to pick up and play, start your working life through a predetermined path in a quirky office environment. As well as shouting NO! in your chosen language, use your NO! different emotional states to send them reeling. Confuse people with different actions to let their guard down, then charge up your NO! for an even greater effect on unsuspecting colleagues.
Touching on timeless and modern issues such as social etiquette, friendship and workplace standards, this hilarious adventure also has tender depth. It’s all wrapped up in a fun late 90s video game style, complete with chunky, colourful visuals, comical animations and jazzy music that you’ll struggle to say “NO!” to.
Having previously been delayed from its 2020 release, it's nice to see Say No! More finally arriving on Switch. It's not up for eShop pre-order yet, but Thunderful Publishing has confirmed it'll cost $14.99.
