An Office Space Video Game Is Out Now, 18 Years After The Movie Came Out

18 years after the release of the the workplace comedy Office Space, a video game based on the Mike Judge film has arrived. Called Office Space: Idle Profits, the free-to-play game is out now for iOS and Android.

Idle Profits features characters from the game such as Michael Bolton, Bill Lumbergh, Samir, Peter, and Milton (with this red stapler, of course). You play as a “lowly Initech corporate drone” who is about to lose their job to a recent college grad. Just like in the movie, you’ll work with your fellow disgruntled employees to install a virus on the company’s mainframe to steal money.

As the money piles up, players will unlock new departments of Initech and new characters.

“Everyone, at least once, has felt underappreciated at their job,” developer Ultrabit GM Cooper Bachman said in a statement. “When we started working on Office Space, everyone on the development team knew we were onto something special. Even 18 years later, the film’s themes are still relatable to all ages. And when we paired the film’s story and hilarious cast of characters with idle mechanics, it fit incredibly well.”

And don’t worry, Idle Profits will indeed pay homage to Office Space‘s famous printer-destroying scene. As you can see in the image below, Peter, Michael, and Samir deal out their own brand of justice on the device in the middle of a field, just like it happened in the movie.

Ultrabit is a subsidiary of GameStop’s mobile game unit, Kongregate. The studio worked on Pocket Politics and Raid Brigade.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
