Continuing our spoopy Spotlights to celebrate Halloween, today I’m going to highlight Lobotomy Corporation | Monster Management Simulation by Korean indie developer Project Moon.
Lobotomy Corporation is a narrative-focused, light management game with some roguelite elements inspired by Cabin in the Woods, SCP, and Warehouse 13. You are the administrator of a top secret underground facility that contains “Abnormalities,” supernatural beings that generate energy that your parent company is trying to harness as a fuel source.
Experiment on and observe these Abnormalities to learn more about them, and deal with the inevitable containment breaches when they escape. Unfortunately, the game’s translation looks really shoddy based on the Steam page description, but that hasn’t stopped the game from amassing nearly 3,000 positive user reviews. You can check out a trailer above.
Lobotomy Corporation | Monster Management Simulation is available on Windows PC via Steam for $24.99, and its currently 25% off as part of the Halloween Sale.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
Administrator and monsters, you cannot possibly imagine.
Lobotomy Corp is a Monster Management Rogue-Lite Simulation game.
Our game was inspired by the monsters from game and movies such as SCP series, Cabin in the woods and Warehouse 13. Furthermore, it was developed from the thought of “What if those monsters were real and your job is to manage them”.
You will be playing as an administrator of the company which is in the management of such creatures. These monsters generate a new energy source, and your job is to collect them through giving out to your subordinates. Through this process, you can open new departments that facility allows and encounter various monsters. In the game, the player will have to go through the company’s fear and tension filled the atmosphere.
“Our new technology will bring salvation to the human race.”
Lobotomy corporation is a newly established energy company that extracts an infinite amount of entropy through the isolation of abnormality with our self-developed technology. This is only an impression that the public has regarding our company. You will see its reality after you have joined us.
Our facility is formed of many departments just like any other companies. You will have access to various departments as you gather more energy. The more you have access to various departments, the much easier the management of abnormality will become.
Furthermore, an AI ‘Angela’ and ‘Sephira’ will be by your side to support your needs for the smooth process of work.
