Big Fat Simulations and Fluik Entertainment proudly present Office Jerk Holiday Edition, now available on the iTunes app store! If you’ve tried Office Jerk, I think you will enjoy this one.
Unlike the previous versions of this game such as Office Zombie, this one is not free (sorry). The cost, time and effort required to build an iPhone app makes it difficult to release them as a freebies.
In case you are wondering why we are making iPhone apps instead of Airport Madness 4, rest assured we are getting close to a release date for it! A huge thank you to everyone reading this blog for their support with all of our projects.
It is difficult to believe that it has been five whole months since Office Jerk hit number 1 in the iTunes App Store. We are pleased to announce that our latest game in this series, Office Zombie, has achieved the #1 rank as well.
Office Jerk and Office Zombie were developed in cooperation with the amazing Fluik Entertainment mobile game development company. These games are a departure from our main theme, which is air traffic control games. Developing for mobile devices involves a completely different audience. People on-the-go, sitting on a bus, on a coffee break or whatever, want games that are simple and entertaining. Having said all of that, I do get emails from fans asking, “So what’s the deal with this game? Are you just supposed to throw stuff at the guy?”
The objective in Office Jerk was, simply, to huck stuff at your coworkers, which is something many people would like to do in real life. That seems to be what mobile gamers are after. Simple, mindless entertainment. Office Zombie, however, has everything that Apple had previously banned from Office Jerk. They will not permit things like knives, chainsaws, and other dangerous objects to be used as weapons against humans. They won’t allow blood, either. So we went with zombies. After all, who cares about zombies? To heck with them! The original Office Jerk was a flash game that I built years ago. It was extremely complicated, and involved climbing the corporate ladder by strategically choosing office enemies. The iOS version of Office Jerk does not have the same depth, but is much more polished, and actually great fun.
Office Zombie comes just in time for Halloween. We intend to release many more such games in the months to come, so check back here regularly for details.
An Office Jerk update is now available from iTunes! Version 1.3 offers three new FREE weapons as well as tons of new taunts, reactions and mayhem. We are getting some terrific reviews, and are moving our way back up the app store chart with the many improvements we have made.
If you own an iPhone or iPad and haven’t tried version 1.3 of Office Jerk yet, grab it here. It’s absolutely free! And be sure to follow us on Facebook for news, updates and freebies!
It’s arrived, the biggest time toilet of 2011. Mindless carnage, endless fun! Big Fat Simulations and Fluik Entertainment are proud to bring Office Jerk to the Android market. We have had over 7 million iPhone downloads in over 50 countries in just two months. We’re excited to see how it is received by the Android market.
