Going Under is a dungeon crawling Roguelike set within the world of Startup conglomerate Cubicle. Cubicle has managed to acquire a number of smaller startups, and you join their humble workforce as Jackie, an un-paid marketing intern at Fizzle, a sparkling water company who is planning to replace all meals with their hydrating beverages.
Going Under immediately manages to strike a balance between laughing at the stereotypical startup tropes , and pointing out the very real issues that many employees face at these types of companies. It’s a difficult thing to pull off, but the writing in Going Under is thoughtful, considered, insightful, and at times hilarious.
Going Under is available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
