New videogame lets you slap CEO online.
Would you leave this recession alone or confront it? Playing this game, if you leave the recession alone, you see lots of people asking for money, but you just don’t give them any. You can give them money or not give them money. If you give them all money, all the CEOs and defaulting homeowners, your economy will fail, but if you don’t give them any money you can slap them instead. That’s right, in this game you can slap those people who make monetary requests. So if you slap them all, your economy fails, but if you don’t slap them, do nothing, or give them money, the only other option is to QUIT THIS CRAZY GAME.

The demo that is available is actually really fun to play. I highly suggest downloading it. It’s only 36 MB in size, so I suspect the programmers are really good at what they do!
