About Going Under

About this game

Going Under is a satirical dungeon crawler about exploring the cursed ruins of failed tech startups. As an unpaid intern in the dystopian city of Neo-Cascadia, you’ll wield office junk as weaponry as you make your way through the offbeat procedural dungeons beneath your company campus.

The Future is Wack

Failed businesses no longer just cease to exist--they sink beneath the earth, and their employees are cursed to wander the halls for eternity as monsters. It’s your duty to put these monsters out of their misery and repossess their assets--so that your boss can afford a new car, or something.

Not All Heroes Get Paychecks

Battle through the remains of failed startups themed off of gig workers, dating sites, and cryptocurrency. Uncover the true motives of your employer, a carbonated drink startup known as Fizzle, and their parent company, a subscription box manufacturer with an army of helpful shipping drones. Make friends with your co-workers! Hire a freelance goblin! Date a slime! Invest in crypto! Set a rideshare on fire!

Fight Flexibly

In the dungeons of Going Under, almost everything can be used as a weapon, from laptops to brooms to body pillows. Proper weapons can be found as well, but even they can break at a moment’s notice if you aren’t careful. Playing cautiously and picking the right weapon for the situation are musts if you intend on surviving your internship.

Horrible Bosses

And you thought your boss was a monster. At the bottom of the dungeons lurk the founders of the cursed startups, getting rich off of investments while their employees fight amongst themselves. Defeat them and return to the surface with their enchanted relics to empower the company you work for.

Get Paid in Experience

As you explore, you’ll encounter powerful Skills that change the way you play. Learn them at the Cafe and they’ll show up in future runs. Use a Skill often enough, and you’ll get it “endorsed” and available to start your expeditions with. Combine multiple Skills for crazy synergies, and you’ll be cleaning house in no time.

A World of Characters

Complete Tasks for your co-workers to gain Clout with them and unlock their unique bonuses. Learn more about Neo-Cascadia, the origins of Fizzle, and how the drone shipping empire known as Cubicle came to dominate the city. Can you save your company and yourself from going under for good?

Pretty fun game, not quite a rogue-like but the diversity of the runs (weapons and buffs) are especially astounding

I really liked the graphics of this game. Working in an industry similar to what was featured in the game, I really liked the humor and presentation of Going Under. The way it poked fun in the industry while delivering a great gameplay loop hooked me in. And did I mention the graphics and the textures that really made this game pop out among other games in the genre?

Great game

Very fun game, good combat and good rouge like elements. The only real complaint is that I wish there were more dungeons, but the 3 the game offers are distinct enough to be enjoyable.

This is a very good, if somewhat off-beat, action roguelike. The premise is you play as a college "marketing" intern at a startup that's funded by and affiliated with a large tech company. On this note, there's a lot of sarcastic humor pertaining to tech startups and large tech companies, and that adds to the charm of the atmosphere of the game. The artstyle is also a bit quirky and cartoonish, but it actually complements the feel and gameplay in my opinion. Gameplay-wise, the combat and missions are quite challenging, but like many other roguelikes you need to restart and grind a bit in certain dungeons/levels. You gradually can acquire some in-game currency, along with stronger abilities and skills. Overall, I'd recommend this to action and roguelike fans, but keep in mind it can get fairly grindy.

Fantastic, simple, monster killing good time

As far as roguelites go it's a great time, the feel and art style play with the story and the writing brings it home. It can be difficult but it's a roguelite, get up, brush yourself off, grab a monitor and swing away.

Gets a little grindy in the second half of the game but gameplay is fun and level/art design is spectacular

Fun game, possibly too long and second half difficulty spike can be a turn off.f.

Going under is a delightful little roguelite with a satirical take on startup culture. Wielding oversized office supplies and snagging power ups during your run is fun and will delight fans of the genre. However I feel like it overstayed it's welcome a bit. There's a second half to the game that takes a massive difficulty spike, and while hardcore fans of roguelites may enjoy it it frankly annoyed me more than it kept me wanting to take another run.
