VR Videogame THE LAST WORKER unveils an A-star casting including british actor Jason Isaacs

Wired Productions, Oiffy and Wolf & Wood today revealed the world-class talent delivering the inspired narrative in the forthcoming, award nominated adventure, THE LAST WORKER.

Created by Writer / Director Jörg Tittel – and the only video game selected by the 78th Venice International Film Festival (La Biennale di Venezia) – THE LAST WORKER is a first-person narrative adventure centred around our struggle in an increasingly automated world. Combining a hand-crafted art style with uniquely immersive gameplay mechanics in an epic setting, THE LAST WORKER delivers an emotional, thought provoking and comedic story packaged with rich characters performed by an all-star cast:

THE LAST WORKER felt entirely unlike every game I’ve played or been a part of. The characters were human and complicated and funny, the story was poignant and personal and, yes, the game-playing was addictive and fun. All round it felt fresh, creative and original. When was the last time you had a helper bot from Liverpool?!  The creator, Jörg, is a risk-taking nerd of the highest order. Roll on THE LAST WORKER 2… if that’s not a contradiction!
- Jason Isaacs

Jörg Tittel said, “It is with great pride that we are able to announce our all-star voice talent during La Biennale di Venezia, the world’s oldest film festival. Every member of the cast brings their respective characters to life in ways that go beyond what we cover ever have hoped or imagined.”

Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions, continued, “THE LAST WORKER being the only video game up for an award at the 78th Venice International Film Festival is a testament to how unique an experience it already is for VR and traditional gaming platforms.”
