Release of New Game "Are You Meaner Than Dick Cheney?" Coincides With New Book
To coincide with the new tell-all book by Dick Cheney, a new video game has been released. "Are You Meaner Than Dick Cheney?" pits gamers against the former vice president.
A game developer - who does not wish to be identified - says that "all situations depicted had to be carefully translated to the game, as the original manuscript for the book was written in human blood."
Player levels start with the novice level Eric Cantor, experienced level Bin Laden and of course the most challenging level, Dick Cheney himself.
The publisher of the game, WMD, provided us with a sample question:
1) An old lady needs help across the street. What do you do?
a) Help old lady across street
b) Do a full body search of old lady
c) Administer water-boarding on old lady
Gamestop is offering non-incentives to purchase "Are You Meaner Than Dick Cheney?", including "continued ownership of your mortal soul", and "goodwill toward men and women of all races and creeds".
In related news, "Call of Duty: Battle For Benefits" is expected to hit shelves not soon enough.
