Designers of the brilliant new online game, “Tea Party Zombies Must Die,” send players on a mission to kill “tea party zombies,” FOX Noise anchors, Republican politicians, and even activists, using weapons like machine guns, shotguns, crowbars and machetes.
“Tea Party Zombies Must Die” contains politically provocative imagery, like walking through the offices of Koch Industries wielding a shotgun, or attending a sparsely populated tea party rally and killing activists with a crowbar.
In-between levels 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 on politics and the negative impact of big money on American democracy.
“Tea Party Zombies Must Die,” launches via a Flash embed in almost any modern web browser, and is similar to PC first-person-shooter classic Doom. It contains a variety of enemies, such as: “Generic pissed off old white guy;” “Pissed off stupid white trash redneck birther zombie;” “Expresses racist views anonymously on the internet modern klan zombie;” “Factory made blond Fox News barbie who has never had a problem in her life zombie;” “The ‘we tricked the God people into believing in tax cuts for the rich’ executive zombie;” and the “Koch Industries ‘Koch whore’ lobbyist pig zombie.”
