Shift 87 – Release Date Trailer

Job Announcement: Join NORN Corporation with SHIFT 87 on July 23rd!
“Only minor risks regarding your psychological stability.” Not so different from your current job, is it? Check it out

HAMBURG, Germany (July 11th, 2024) – Developer Pixelsplit and Daedalic Entertainment are here with a job offer for you from NORN Corp., who were somehow involved in the mysterious events of March 24 at the Nelson Bros Circus. Shift 87 is an observation horror game. The primary responsibility of the vacant position is reporting anomalies and horror observation, so if you think “well, horror observation is what I do all day in the office anyway,” then this opportunity is for you! Shift 87 is coming to Steam PC on July 23rd, but you can start right now w/o any embargo whatsoever. Just reply to this mail, and we’ll provide access. But please, read on! There is more, funkier stuff yet to come. 

Psst, hey! This is just for your ears only, okay? I wanted to give you a heads-up, to make sure this package truly is worse than your current situation. NORN Corp. claims they have “more variety, more environments, more details than in comparable places.” Not sure what exit they were taking, but they go on about there being some “secret ending if you find all 66 anomalies.” Wait! It gets even weirder… “Playtime: 2-3 hours.” Guess that means you’ll have a lot of free time on your hands after your shift! There is one caveat, though: “50% of the anomalies may be creepy, but easy to spot – the other 50% are more subtle and easy to miss.” So. There. I warned ya. Good luck with not getting paranoid!

Your personalized contract is ready and waiting for your signature. Due to its size (384 pages), it will only be provided digitally. Don’t worry if your first shift takes longer than anticipated; our medical intervention team will take care of you.

Background Information:
Anomaly (plural anomalies): From Latin anomalia, from Ancient Greek ἀνωμαλία (anōmalía, “irregularity, anomaly”), from ἀνώμαλος (anṓmalos, “irregular, uneven”), negating the meaning of ὁμαλός (homalós, “even”), from ὁμός (homós, “same”).

Observation (plural observations): From Latin observationem (nominative observatio), “a watching over, observance, investigation.” Noun of action from past-participle stem of observare, “watch over, note, heed, look to, attend to, guard, regard, comply with.”

Quality Assurance (plural quality assurances): From early civilizations’ rudimentary quality checks to modern approaches like TQM, ISO standards, and contemporary methodologies, quality management has undergone remarkable transformations. At NORN, our priority is to ensure that our disruptive technologies are sufficiently tested before we present them to our partners in the civil and military sectors.
