Watch: This new video game is meant to be ‘satire and comedy’, but it’s just racist

Bad idea, even if your company is named Big-O-Tree Games (for ‘bigotry’).


A Canadian game developer has come up with a video game which is being criticised around the world for being blatantly racist and offensive. But that’s just what the company wanted. Because Big-O-Tree Games (for “bigotry”) believes that “being politically correct is so boring”, according to their website.

The game, called Dirty Chinese Restaurant, centres around a man named Wong Fu who has inherited a restaurant from his brother. In the trailers (above and below), Wong Fu is seen in the said restaurant, which is abundant with motifs of racial stereotypes.

Judging from the trailer, if you’re playing this game you must “ensure your top-notch eatery is always fully stocked with fresh provisions, has its bills paid, equipped with the most dedicated and hardworking staff, and is on its way to making the family business a wholesome household name in the community.”

Points are earned by Dumpster-diving for supplies, “hunting” stray cats and dogs with a meat cleaver, and running the kitchen at “sweatshop” speed. Tax evasion is encouraged, and immigration officials make Fu’s life difficult by deporting line cooks.

Big-O-Tree justifies the existence of this game by saying that they were “influenced by the classic politically incorrect shows like South Park and Family Guy we grew up watching” to create this game. Also, they “listen to Jay-Z”, so they should obviously be excused for developing the game.

But people are having none of this distasteful excuse of a satire. US Congresswoman Grace Meng blasted the game online, urging Google, Apple, Android, and any other platform to not carry it, “or any other game that glorifies in hurting any community.”

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
