MIDDLE MANAGER OF JUSTICE!

Biff! Kapow!!

That’s the sound of Double Fine bursting onto the mobile scene with Middle Manager of Justice!

That’s right. The superhero management game you’ve been waiting for is here! And it’s just the first title to be announced of an all new, three-game partnership with our pals at Dracogen Inc.
It’s going to be FREE to play on iOS and will be available soon on iTunes.

“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!”

“Wow, a game about Superheroes AND middle management! That’s what I’ve always wanted!” said a soot-covered orphan we hadn’t noticed before hiding in the shadows. “But, surely, a penniless, adorable ragamuffin like myself could never afford an amazing game like that…” He looked despairingly at his iOS device.

“Sure you can,” said Kee, “It’s free!”

“Free? Well then…Looks like it’s HERO TIME!” the orphan declared with a sly wink. Then he kicked aside his crutch, wiped the coal streaks from his face, and stood tall to reveal that he was actually Steven Dengler of Dracogen Inc., stalwart ally of Double Fine Productions!

“All I ask is that you release it in Canada first, so I have a chance to get to the top of the Leaderboards,” added Steve, as he went back to watching that game where the ice skaters fight over the ashtray with sticks.

Now check out our awesome Website of Justice!

"This is just awesome. And it´s made even better by the fact that Double Fine are making it together with a company which names makes you think that it´s run by a Bond movie villain. :)"

"It looks very appealing! The only thing that will keep me from playing it is the announcement as an F2P game... I wonder what the virtual currency will be... :-/"

"@CecilRusso - That is one of the main reasons I chose the name."

"Dracogen: Since that makes a bit unsure (read: uneasy) about your long term goals with your enterprise......wanna be friends?"

"Yeah Android is a must"

Acefox:

"Finally! A game that celebrates the real heroes out there! The guys that handle the payroll and deal with all the messy PR clean-up work while the masked vigilantes have all the fun. You rock, Overlord Dracogen!"

"Maybe if we all shout Android loud enough it will happen faster? :-)"

"@DocAce I can shout! AndroidAndroidAndroid... or maybe not, I don't need yet another way to subject my wallet to my horribly poor impulse control *hinthint* :P"

"Assuming that these comments are a representative sample of the world, that means that there are almost 4 billion of us who want an Android version! Seems like a no-brainer to me. ;)"

DF Kee:

"As with all DF games, we want to be on as many platforms as possible! PC, Android, iOS, TI-82, Etch-a-Sketch, everything!!! We are focusing our launch to iOS first, and hopefully we'll be on everyone's platform of choice! Maybe less so the TI-82, programming on those were hard. I have played a mean game of Tetris on one though...."

Illessa:

"Woo, thanks for confirming Kee! I look forward to dusting off my Etch-a-Sketch ;)"

"Oh wow. I heard Dracogen was behind the psychonauts update and rattled off an email to him. Awesome guy and runs a good webcomic with his sister. Is he a bit more involved with this game? If so, pretty cool."

"Please bring this game to Windows Phone and I will love you forever!"

Kanashimi:

"This is one of those games that I'd really love to play, but I don't have a phone that can. I'd certainly pay for this for the Vita or even 3DS. I know we saw a Vita in Tim's office during one of the interviews, kinda hoping and praying!"

Hasenpfote:

"why oh WHY for Apple only? *insert rant against Apple here* This sucks... :'-( Bring it to a platform which everyone has, like: a PC! Stupid, shiny, pieces of handcuffing crap!"

Chris Beard:

"I'd be ever so grateful if Doublefine would consider releasing this on Android. I understand as a customer profile Apple users are a lot freer with their wallets, but Android has an increasing market share of over 50% on smartphones and this is increasing. Smart money says that in 2-5 years apps&games; will be android first. Get ahead of the trend - start doing Android development well now."
