Warehouse and Logistics Simulator Gets Zombie DLC

Warehouse and Logistics Simulator Gets Zombie DLC

Warehouse and Logistics Simulator somehow found a way to get even more thrilling than the core forklift-operating experience.

The "Relatively Mundane Career Simulator" genre has inexplicably taken off, and the latest product of that trend is Warehouse and Logistics Simulator (yes, really). The game tasks players with the operation of a forklift as they complete various exciting tasks like moving heavy boxes. The core gameplay faithfully recreates a good day as a policy-obeying forklift expert, but what about the bad days? What about the days where you show up to the warehouse, sit down in your trusty forklift, and realize that you're surrounded by the living dead?

Luckily for all of us, the developers have you covered. The Hell's Warehouse DLC fills the aisles with ravenous zombies just waiting to be skewered by your heavy machinery. Throw your safety manual out the window, because the undead have infested the local docks and supermarkets and for some reason, you're the only one who can stop them. Crates of produce are replaced with explosives for efficient zombie slaying in these depots of death.

In all seriousness, I'm not sure what to make of this - developer app2fun has combined the most over-crowded genre in gaming with what is probably the most obscure genre (with apologies to forklift enthusiasts - both of them). The original game was itself the punchline to a surreal unspoken joke, so I guess you can't blame the devs for getting one more laugh out of it.

If you need more forklift action in your life, the game and its DLC are currently 20% off on Steam.

I guess the undead...will get forked.

But yeah, I just saw the Giant Bomb quick look on this thing, and it was absolutely hilarious.

I hope this zombie thing gets out of everyone's system pretty soon. It really is grating.

so its forklift driver klaus: the game.

i am suprisingly okay with this.

Oh my god it finally happened. Admittedly not exactly the way I was hoping, but I've been wishing that one of these stupid boring-job simulator games would randomly use its mechanics to suddenly have the player defend themselves from aliens or something. I personally was hoping for Demolitions Expert simulator to do that, but eh.

Reminds me of that Train Simulator Zombie/Halloween DLC.


It's absolutely silly, of course, but I like that the devs are having fun like that with their games.

This honestly sounds like an amazing development

I want to see this with the farming simulator: I want to use a combine harvester on zombies!!!!

Curse you, fellow German, for beating me to introducing the world to Staplerfahrer Klaus!!! D:

Well as long as stupid can be sold stupid will be made, so enjoy everyone who has no concept of quality entertainment.

I drove forktrucks for 4 years and have been looking for a good material handler sim.

Unfortunately, this is an United Independent Entertainment GmbH title and they have a history of publishing barely playable crap. Such as: Professional Farmer 2014, Airport Simulator 2014, Game Tycoon 1.5, Agricultural Simulator 2013, and Farming Giant. None of which do what they say on the tin.

Forklift drive Klaus, who ever said the Germans didn't have a sense of humor? It's just ridiculously gory

Mr.K.:

First, if people like to play forklift sims, who are you to question their taste?

Second, these games are a similar case to Twilight: A market so devoid of offerings that people interested will buy anything, no matter how crap it is.

Almost makes me want to develop niche simulators that are half-decent.

I like that you've put it as NSFW, especially because we watch this video at work for our forklift training :)

So, yeah... I have no idea what to make of this either. Why make a zombie DLC for a game like this? It makes no sense. If you want to kill zombies, you don't buy a forklift simulator, and if you buy a forklift simulator, chances are it's not to kill zombies.

Also, because it has to be used when ever someone utters the word:

This is actually my current job. The pop music they play makes me want to go on a murderous rampage constantly. I think I'll try playing the zombie DLC whilst blasting shitty Katy Perry songs and see if I feel better.
