Are you ready for some zombie arse-kicking?! Well, look no further! Brooklyn-based “advergaming” company StarvingEyes has created the best game ever in “Tea Party Zombies Must Die”! What could be better than backtracking on our pledge for civility, whipping out the virtual violence, and assassinating Americans all in the name of political righteousness?!
Okay, yeah, technically they’re zombies but they were born in the US so they are still American citizens.
But if you thought killing Americans was cool, it gets even better. You also get to face some major Tea Party zombie baddies like “Lobbyist Pig Zombie” and “Express Racist Views Anonymously On The Internet Modern Klan Zombie”. And if that weren’t enough, you even get the opportunity to actually “take out” (thank you, James Hoffa) the likes of Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Brit Hume, Sean Hannity, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Fox News, and the Koch Brothers all in zombie form of course.
And what’s great is that in between bouts of brutality, you are treated to little “public service announcements” telling you how stupid the Tea Party is, like this one:
Only 12% of the Tea Partiers know that taxes went down under Obama. 77% of Tea Partiers thought their taxes went up or stayed the same. – CBS
Taxes are the lowest they’ve been in 60 years. 95% of people got a tax cut last year. – USA Today
That’s nice… Give me my friggin’ AK47 back! I’m playing a video game, damn it! I wanna kill stuff, not learn stuff!
Anyhow, aside from all the learnin’ of stuff, the complete breakdown of basic human civility and the virtual killing of American citizens, I give this game five thumbs up.
