Eschborn, April 19th, 2016 — My Night Job is an action arcade game, offering a very special side job: inspired by monster movies from the 1980’s, My Night Job’s hero Reggie takes a stand against monsters and zombies in old-school 2D side-scrolling fashion.
My Night Job: nonstop action for Reggie Players accepting the position of a monster hunter in My Night Job will receive the order to escort 100 survivors from 25 different settings in an old mansion by helicopter. But nasty monsters will be trying to prevent their rescue! In My Night Job, players rescue survivors – but not only with their bare fists. Reggie has a total of 63 different weapons at his disposal. Reggie turns anything and everything that isn’t nailed to the old walls of the mansion into a weapon: in an emergency an umbrella or a hat stand will come in handy. When things get tough, players can grab an ax or various firearms. The longer you play, the harder things get. A round of My Night Job is over when all 100 survivors have been rescued or Reggie kicks the bucket. But be warned: if the monsters take control of more than three rooms, the rescue operation is also over.
Monster hunting in the 1980’s My Night Job pays homage to the horror movies and games of the 1980’s. The game’s hand-drawn setting was inspired by the horror movies of the 80’s. The charming pixelate style lovingly reflects the dark mood of monster hunting. The incredibly high level of detail in My Night Job invites player to explore. Observant players will find references to horror classics from the 80’s everywhere.
