Double Fine has announced superhero management iOS game Middle Manager of Justice.
Set to launch soon as a free-to-play title, Middle Manager of Justice Is the first in a three-game partnership Double Fine has with Dracogen Inc. and sees players managing a band of superheroes.
"Somewhere between GOOD and EVIL... Between ORDER and CHAOS... Between UPPER MANAGEMENT and the SENIOR STAFF... You'll find the glue that holds it all together: The Middle Manager... of Justice!" said Kee Chi, the game's creator, dramatically reading from the marketing text.
"Congratulations!" he continued, "You have been promoted to Middle Manager.. of Justice! You have been chosen to whip the latest branch of Justice Corp into shape! Train and manage your team of superheroes to thwart crime and save citizens around the city! Increase efficiency in your branch by building new facilities and upgrading the equipment! Could it be done without you? Yeah, probably, but it would be sloppy, costly, and demotivating!"
Taking to the Double Fine forums Chi explained just how free the game really is.
"We've been VERY careful about any sort of predatory iOS IAP practices. You can play through Middle Manager without paying anything!" Chi explained.
"There are absolutely no paywalls. All that purchasing currency does is allow you to experience the content quicker and have stronger heroes earlier, but you can experience all the game at whichever pace you want!"
Chi added that versions for other platforms may follow the iOS release.
