Silicon Valley - (Rioters): The newly expanded World of Whorecraft online game is being launched next week.
The Burning Rampage edition has new incontinent players plus updated pests, stalkers, snitches and supergrasses. It is said to have been modelled largely on CIA rendition operations in the Iraq conflict during the last three years and has an upgraded multi-player online role-playing game functionality to include DefCon 3 status.
The product patch released today describes how the game "puts players in the fantasy world of the White House and allows them to choose to control a range of characters and professions".
Players are briefed that they can "carry out quests and go on adventures" - such as those enjoyed by Mark Foley or Jack Abramoff, to name just a few.
One of the objectives of the game is the killing of monsters which is rewarded with either money, more powerful equipment or in the case of British allies, some prime-time soundbites but no real overall political rewards.
The game is priced at $25 but can be downloaded free at all the usual internet sources.
