The new game Black Friday was recently pulled from shelves and banned in several states after gamers and critics alike denounced it for its brutality. “In a world populated by games like God of War and Call of Duty,” one critic wrote about the game, “this one makes them look like Super Mario Bros..” A gamer posted, “for once, I am actually traumatized! To quote Transformers, ‘oh the humanity!'”
The game takes place in various shopping malls and retail stores nationwide. The gamer plays a person desperately trying to conquer growing crowds of violent hordes of people scrambling for the best deals the day after Thanksgiving. If the gamer attempts to buy something in demand, the bloodbath really starts.
Black Friday developer Batshit Crazy explains further details. “Once you grab something that’s in short supply or at a discount, like a flat-screen television, a PS4, an Xbox One, or even an iPhone 5s, you run the risk of attracting attention to yourself, and that’s when you grab your weapons. Thematically, it’s very similar to the many zombie games on the market, but this time you have to deal with human beings at their most primal. That in itself puts most zombies to shame.”
