Video: Online Video Game 'Tea Party Zombies Must Die,' Players Gun Down Palin, Bachmann

| by Michael Allen

In a new online video game, 'Tea Party Zombies Must Die,' players are sent on a mission to kill Fox News anchors, Republican politicians, lobbyists and activists. In the violent game, players can use machine guns, shotguns, crowbars and machetes (video below).

Though tongue-in-cheek, the video game contains provacative imagery, such as players walking through the offices of Koch Industries with a shotgun. Some of the "zombies" to be "killed" include Rep. Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin and Bill O'Reilly.



In between levels, the game presents quotes from journalists and activists from The New York Times, The Guardian and Greenpeace, describing the activities of Koch Industries, the influence of Fox News and the impact of big money on democracy.

According to the designer, Starvingeyes, this new 'advergame' was not commissioned by any person or organization. Starvingeyes has previously worked with companies like Red Bull, UPS, NASCAR, Motorola, Pepsi and Craftsman, among others.

In an email exchange with Media Research Center, company founder Jason Oda explained: "The game was just a personal project. I am not worried about it effecting business."
