Cultural Enrichment, Issue 1

Good evening. Welcome to the first edition of an enlightening and likely short-lived feature.

It is vital, dear reader, that you visit http://raptorsafari.com/. Off-Road Velociraptor Safari is a free web-based game that was released today by the folks at Flashbang Studios. The object, as you’ve guessed from the name (if you’re a crazy person), is to speed around in a Jeep, committing vehicular homicide against velociraptors and then hauling their feathered carcasses to extraction points. The story, if we must assume there is one, seems to involve time travel and cannibalism – raptors are described as food, although the driver of your Jeep is himself a velociraptor. Wearing a monocle.

And if you’re not playing by now, I don’t know what else to say. Should you desire to track your progress towards better well-roundedness in relation to my own, aim for my high score of 931,250. And from there, the stars! Eventually Off-Road Velociraptor Safari will be released on Xbox LIVE Arcade, which could be fairly amazing when and if they add multiplayer.
