I swear, on all that is holy, may my 360 elite show the accursed ring of fire and my vending machine be forever bereft of Dew, if I don't shit you not:

Picture a game where you are an immigrant who must invade America with your "alternative" food, ie. not cheeseburgers, and your "other" gods, ie. Vishnu, Alvis, etc, and live life "under the radar" and "not be so ethnic" as to attract the attention of Homeland securritah. This is no Newgrounds flash turd, either. This is completely cereal.

Players try to avoid deportation by keeping a low profile and performing community service. Shoplifting or jumping a subway turnstile loses points. Lose too many, and your character ends up in a federal detention facility.

"You can get a lot out of a game, more than from film and other media in some ways, because you are actively engaged rather than just a passive consumer," said Suzanne Seggerman, head of the nonprofit group Games for Change.

You can't make this shit up.

In the first level, players keep a low profile in a city vaguely resembling New York. In the second level, they must navigate an immigration detention center. Programmer Heidi Boisvert estimates the game can take 10 to 30 minutes to play.

Steven Camarota, head of research at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, questioned the value of a game that focuses on individual cases rather than the complex issues surrounding immigration.

Hey! Asshole! Yea, I'm talking to you, Steven Camarota, where do you get off saying this game "doesn't convey the complexity of immigration"? Didn't you read that quote right above your fucking head? She said it takes 10 to 30 minutes to play. Now I don't know about you ignorant motherfuckers, but I learned about penal code reform in a minute thirty and pretty much all of new york state tax law in under five seconds, so you can pretty much just STFU.

""ICED!" gamers can become a Mexican high school graduate whose family overstayed its visa, or a Haitian war veteran who faces deportation when he turns to alcohol and crime after returning from Iraq. "

I can't wait.
