Play OverviewPlay Overview

Stick It to the Stickman (2022) is a fast-paced fighting game where you play a disgruntled worker on a killing spree through their office. As you play, you unlock more ways to batter your coworkers in ever more outrageous ways, all the while grappling with the intentionally awkward physics that sends desks and chairs flying. It's a wacky game, that leans into its absurd humour while requiring considerable skill to succeed.

You play a new hire at a large corporation, where individualism is frowned upon and higher-ups view you as just another number. Rather than acquiescing to this mundane existence, you rebel by going on a rampage of destruction. You destroy everyone and everything that stands in your way with punches, kicks, and an ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and tools, as you slowly work your way up to the CEO's office.

Play involves moving through the office building and fighting coworkers with different attacks. As you fight, you bash the desks and office furniture around the floor, creating ever more obstacles to traverse. You unlock new weapons and abilities to defeat powerful foes as you progress. When you die, you start again from the bottom of the building but retain upgrades to your character, allowing you to get slightly further each time, until eventually you make it all the way to the top.

The result is as chaotic as it is absurd fun. Wreaking havoc on your office and your coworkers and slowly growing in strength is the ultimate office power fantasy and makes for an entertaining escape.
