Jason Isaacs said, “The Last Worker felt entirely unlike every game I’ve played or been a part of. The characters were human and complicated and funny, the story was poignant and personal and, yes, the game-playing was addictive and fun. All round it felt fresh, creative and original. When was the last time you had a helper bot from Liverpool?! The creator, Jörg, is a risk-taking nerd of the highest order. Roll on The Last Worker 2… if that’s not a contradiction!”

Jörg Tittel said, “There is no better occasion to announce our wonderful cast than the world’s oldest film festival, La Biennale di Venezia. We have recorded over 200 pages of dialogue between London, Reykjavik, Adelaide and Toronto and I hope that people the world over will fall in love with their characters and get lost in our story.”

Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions, continued, “The Last Worker being the only video game up for an award at the 78th Venice International Film Festival is a testament to how unique an experience it already is for VR and traditional gaming platforms.”

The Last Worker will be released on Oculus Quest 2 / Quest, Steam VR, Steam, Epic Games Store, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch in 2022.
