Shop ’til You Drop Your Rivals

by Nick Montfort · , 1:03 pm

Xtreme Xmas Shopping, which allows you to pummel fellow purchasers for plunder, is now out from Persuasive Games. Oddly, this PG game, unlike several others, doesn’t feature much waiting in line, even though such lines are prime places for consumer beatdowns.

    While I still remain true to the underserved genre of “queuer,” for this game we wanted to explore the equally underserved genre of the “consumer brawler.” I suppose, in a certain sense, Disaffected! could be considered a consumer brawler/queuer.

    Great idea, and great theme music!
