LEAF Mobile, one of Canada’s free-to-play mobile game groups, along with their subsidiary company, East Side Games, in collaboration with Universal Games and Digital Platforms, announced their next free-to-play mobile title, “The Office: Somehow We Manage,” inspired by NBC’s “The Office.”
Launching worldwide later this year, “The Office: Somehow We Manage” lets players through moments from the award-winning comedy, where they’ll tap their way to record proﬁts at Dunder Mifflin with show characters Michael Scott, Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Kelly Kapoor, Dwight Schrute, Stanley Hudson and to make sales. They’ll need to keep the branch afloat by selling paper to unlock and upgrade characters, desks and more episodes.
“The opportunity to bring the five-time Primetime Emmy award-winning TV comedy series The Office to mobile in our trademark idle-game style is an honor for us here at LEAF,” says Darcy Taylor, chief executive officer, LEAF. “We’re looking forward to sharing this new experience with everyone from new audiences to Dunder Mifflin diehards.”
In the game, regional manager Michael Scott needs to improve the Scranton branch’s performance to avoid downsizing and at the end of each business day, Corporate takes their share of the money. Any upgrades built stay with players as they progress in the game, and players can earn in-game rewards.
“‘The Office’ continues to bring joy to new and longtime superfans, and the upcoming launch of ‘The Office: Somehow We Manage’ demonstrates our commitment to offering new and authentic ways to engage with one of the most celebrated TV comedies of all time,” says Jim Molinets, senior vice president, production, Universal Games and Digital Platforms. “The game is reflective of the show’s signature humor, quirky characters and memorable storylines, and will deliver an exciting interactive experience for players to enjoy for a long time to come.”
“The Office” Experience will make its debut in Chicago on Oct.15. The interactive fan experience based on show was created by Superfly X and Universal Live Entertainment, in consultation with Greg Daniels, producer, “The Office’ U.S. Tickets are on sale now and more information can be found here: TheOfficeExperience.com.
