Wow, this is something bizarrely new and deliberately outrageous (as a selling point). It is a mobile game. It is called ‘Dirty Chinese Restaurant’. The players chase after cats and dogs to chop them up with a cleaver to cook and serve to customers (a play on the brutal cat meat industry). The game is intentionally offensive. Another goal is to try and prevent the restaurant staff from being deported.
Players have to keep the badly paid staff working at sweatshop intensity. There is illegal gambling in the restaurant.
The game was created by ‘Big-O-Tree Games’. A play on the word ‘bigotry’. The game is full of bigotry.
The game uses demeaning stereotypes of the Chinese American. It is racist. I wonder if the game will survive the authorities. I’d be surprised if it did not breach some law somewhere.
It is also horrible from the point of view of the glorification, mockery or belittling of the brutal killing and eating of cats.
One of the game’s developers said: ‘Our game in no way is meant to be an accurate representation of Chinese culture’. Fine, but what about the cats? We don’t want to see something horrible such as brutally killing cats for cat meat turned into a stupid game. That’s unethical. I guess you guys know that and have deliberately used that fact to promote the game which was registered by George Lambropoulos.
It is unlikely that the game will be sold through Google and Apple online stores because the game breaches their terms and conditions.
