Ever wished you could blow away a zombified version of Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Bill O’Reilly or Glenn Beck? In Tea Party Zombies Must Die, you can.
In the new game, authored by the folks at Starvingeyes.com, your character totes around a massive gun and dispatches zombies bearing the faces of conservative pundits and politicians.
The game is already raising eyebrows among folks like the brothers at The Daily Conversation (above) and The Raw Story, which smartly points out the tongue-in-cheek nature of Tea Party Zombies Must Die.
Still, the game is apparently not devoid of meaning or message:
In between levels, the game presents quotes from journalists and activists from organizations like The New York Times, The Guardian and Greenpeace, outlining the activities of Koch Industries, the influence of Fox News and the impact of big money on American democracy.
As with games like Kuma War, which lets gamers carry out their own version of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, or Modern Warfare 3, which gives players the chance to explore a terrorism scene in a London subway, Tea Party Zombies Must Die is a way to blow off steam, rather than doing it for real.
If you want to check out Tea Party Zombies Must Die for yourself, you can play it online.
Is this game all in good fun? Or does it go too far? Would you play it? Would you let your kids play it?
