Parodic Business RPG WorkeMon Journeys Onto Android
A darkly satirical new RPG about running a business that riffs on the popular Pokemon franchise appropriately titled WorkeMon has appeared on Android. This humorous retro parody from indie developer Quick Turtle puts players on a quest to start their own succesfull company with the twist being that employees are literally treated like Pokemon with there even being 151 to collect to complete the gag. While as a surface level joke this game would run out steam rather quickly WorkeMon is a surprisingly detailed pixel RPG that goes the extra mile to commit to its premise.
Just like in the Pokemon games players start out by picking one of three WorkeMon and using them to rise up in the world so they can catch ever more rare employees. There are even mock battles where instead of attempting to lower a Pokemon’s health so they can catch them here players are trying to degrade prospective employees’ self-esteem and desired salary in order to add them to their retinue. Once hired these employees will generate income and experience provided players motivate them properly which usually involves a lot of yelling. RPG fans and Pokemon lovers in the mood for a slightly guilty feeling laugh will want to check out WorkeMon.
WorkeMon is free to download on Android and iOS.
