    Yuppie Psycho is the newest game of the publisher Another Indie (I highly recommend you to follow AI on steam and join their Discord Server). Its a lovely puzzle-based horror adventure and an absolute necessity for indie fans like me.

    Yuppie Psycho features an enormous amount of detail. You can tell that the developers put their heart and soul (heehee) into this, making it - even though I've played quite a few indie horror games in the past - unique. The cut-scenes are interesting, they look incredibly well done, making the experience even more extraordinary. The character design suits the story perfectly.
    Even though the graphics might seem friendly and cute, this game is not. The "monsters" are incredibly well done and scary as heck, as well as light flickering (and in general not a lot of light in some places) and a creepy atmosphere in general.
    The game itself runs smoothly.

    the minimum requirements are:
    a 64-bit processor and operating system
    OS: Windows XP
    Processor: Core 2 Duo
    Memory: 2 GB RAM
    Graphics: Intel HD 3000
    Storage: 2 GB available space

    story - 9/10

    You, Brian Pasternack, start off by receiving a letter from a corporation called Sintracorp. They want you to work for them, but your job isn't what it seems like. I'm not going to spoiler everything, since I want you to experience it yourself, but let me tell you - you are going to be drawn to the story, making you want to play several hours in one go.
    The game doesn't really explain anything, you have to discover how to save, how to use things (you have to use items yourself. Like click on them and press use, otherwise you won't progress even though you might have the correct item for said task) and even how to make a sandwich. This might seem outdated to some, but for me, its just another mechanic that makes the game even scarier.
    Every character is unique, most of them are intriguing and leave you wanting to know more about the company and each characters' background and secrets.
    After you log into the Sintranet, your true purpose is revealed - hunting the witch thats been haunting the place. To do so, you have to aquire specific items and information. This is where things start to intensify - but I'm not going to spoiler :P
    All in all, its a really interesting approach to a horror indie game which kind of reminds me of "The witch's house" - if you like twh, you will LOVE Yuppie Psycho.

    music - 10/10
    Finding the perfect balance between tracks that could actually send chills up your spine and some that are much more relaxing, almost like elevator music, isn't an easy thing to do.
    The composer, Garoad, already demonstrated his talent in the game "VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action". He definitely hit the bull's eye regarding the music in this game.
    Even though some of the songs (like Sintranet's song meet and greet) are very reminiscent of VA11 Hall-A's songs, most of them are unique and fit perfectly into their scenes.

    content - 9/10
    Yuppie Psycho might seem like "just another indie horror game" at first, but its so much more than that. It features several endings and a lot(!!) of character background, secrets and hidden items. The outcome of the game depends on the amount of time you're willing to spend on it.

    controls - 10/10
    precise controls. WASD to move, shift to run, e to interact, i for inventory, etc. The game does a good job explaining the controls. They make it a smooth, not frustrating experience.
    Did not try to play with a controller.

    tl;dr - The game is amazing and a necessity if you're a fan of indie horror games (or well made indie games in genernal)

    Kill the Witch. Join Sintracorp.

    one of the most surreal experiences I ever had in a video game.
    Fantastic.
    Congratulations to the Developer Team

    Fantastic Game Highly recommend.
    Is a great indie horror game, make sure you clear your schedule as you wont want to stop once you have started.
    Best part is when you have finished you can start all over with multiple endings so it's not just a once play through game.

    10/10

    Very creative indie horror game. Havent played it much yet but I like its concept and the way how it is implented. People with epilepsy may not play this game.

    Excellent game that fascinates with its style, until the very end without stopping to mix fun and horror.

    Yuppie Psycho is a fun indie game with the unusual premise of being an office job survival horror. Developer Baroque Decay has a distinctive art style and tone he brings into his games with characters brimming with personality and freakish enemies throughout. The game can be often times silly and has fun at the main characters expense.

    A fairly abstract action-adventure game, Yuppie Psycho begins to slow down and wear out it's welcome by the middle of the game. The writing, while creative, does not always make much sense.

    This game is compared to these big tripple A Cakes a really delicate and smoothe piece of tart which makes your senses go crazy. It's a tad sweet and sour, at the same time creamy smooth and the bottom is crunchy and delicious!

    Whit this Dessert you get a little bit of everything: Awkward Humor, Scary Spooks and a tad of romance. What do you want more ? You get a good amount of hours of playtime and riddling so there is no time to be bored, rather you're gonna be cracking your head about how to solve riddles and not die in this crazy company!

    En Yuppie Psycho, lo fundamental es un muchacho que se ve inmerso en algo que no quiso (o que no sabe si quiso) y que busca encajar en un contexto cada vez más ominoso.

    En Yuppie Psycho, lo fundamental es un muchacho que se ve inmerso en algo que no quiso (o que no sabe si quiso) y que busca encajar en un contexto cada vez más ominoso. Y también lo son esas idas y vueltas instantáneas entre realidad, ciencia ficción, comedia y horror que logran emparentarse con la flexibilización e inseguridad que viven tanto nuevas como viejas generaciones.

    Aunque el discurso central se antoja trillado, la alternancia entre un Pasternack nervioso pero asentado o un Brian jovial pero sumiso es atractiva. Acompañada de mecánicas alejadas de lo genérico y con fallas menores, esa reflexión logra que el título consiga un lugar entre las mejores aventuras del último tiempo.

    Balanced firmly between satisfying puzzles, survival horror gameplay, and an amusing story that satirizes the grind of corporate life, the odd but thoroughly engaging Yuppie Psycho has all the makings of a cult classic.

    Yuppie Psycho is a very funny and enjoyable adventure with a lot of puzzles that will give you hard times. Perfectly balanced, we can surely recommend it to fans of this type of games.

    Yuppie Psycho is an adventure game that depicts an exploitive employer through both comedy and horror. It’s too bad that the actual survival gameplay lacks tension. During the latter part of the game, the concept of the employer loses its importance, and while that might make sense for the story, I found the game’s original concept far more appealing.
