The premise is simple: you are a humble office worker dressed in your best suit. Your mode of transportation is your rolling office chair. And the only way to move is to propel yourself around with the blast of your shotgun as you fight for dominance over your fellow employees.
Last Man Sitting is an indie game currently in development that gained attention on Reddit last month when a post featuring a GIF of the gameplay went viral. Gamers were already on board with that image alone, but now a new trailer has dropped showing off even more of the explosive action.
The magic of the game comes from the ridiculous premise and nonsense physics that cause players to go flying out of their chairs and all over the map. There will be shotguns, rocket launchers, giant soccer balls and more to interact with as you attempt to take out your competitors. Released images also showcase a few different office environments, as well as different chairs to cruise around in.
The initial release will feature two different game types: battle royale and team deathmatch. Battle royale will pit a few players against each other in a last man standing type event, where team deathmatch will see players forming teams to see who comes out on top.
Developer Kevin Suckert, the one man team behind this game, says initially the game will release on itch.io for PC and Mac with a planned move to Steam shortly after. He also notes he will be looking into creating a Linux version once the others are established. At the moment, he has no plans for a console release.
Suckert is currently looking towards a January 2018 release date, with a bit of playable testing beforehand. With the same type of chaotic rag-doll physics that made titles like Gang Beasts so successful, Last Man Sitting could be the next sensation.
