    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 gives us a glimpse into the neo-corporate future depicted in science fiction films like Robocop and The Matrix, where normal people try to navigate the corporate dystopian workspaces they’ve found themselves in. It’s a highly polished look at what we once imagined as the reality of the corporatised future, and still could be. It’s entertaining and engaging with its poke at modern life and the flimsy social systems we cling to. It argues that you are not defined by your job – and, on occasion, that’s something everyone needs to hear.

    While the difficulty level may scare some away, Yuppie Psycho has so much great writing and clever gameplay that it would be a crime to overlook. Pasternack’s journey through SintraCorp is equal parts scary and hilarious, and the handful of annoying moments were more than made up for by a fundamentally humane story about people trying to connect and help one another within a system designed to grind them into a slurry of blandness. Sometimes literally.

    Yuppie Psycho is a great survival horror adventure with a good retro style, an interesting story and a great variety of challenges.

    Yuppie Psycho is a solid adventure game that plays rough with first-timers, but offers enough hidden content to make exploring worthwhile.

    Yuppie Psycho turns a workplace satire into a survival horror adventure, and does right by both parts of that strange formula. Despite some frustration from its punishing difficulty, Yuppie Psycho is a surreal but cogent parody that’s well worth clocking in for.

    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.

    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.

It's a tadThis 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!
    What you're staring at? Get your own damn piece of Tart! the buttons right there! You won't regret it trust me ;)

    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!

    I'd highly recommend this game if you're into games like Undertale, Oneshot and LISA: the Painful.

For about 2 hours of game so far i was so bored, that i refunded the game. Because of stupid puzzles, dumb characters designs (pixel + anime-like art design and characters itself), and not really interesting story Expand
