"A Game For People Who Hate Disney"

The year is 2015. Steeped in national debt, the United States reluctantly allows the Walt Disney Company to purchase the entire peninsula of Florida in the largest geographic acquisition since the Louisiana Purchase. Under its new president, formerly-ousted CEO Michael Eisner, the newly-sovereign state is renamed Los Disneys. Your job is to infiltrate the Magic Kingdom, blasting your way through animatronic pirates, holographic ghosts, tourists, security guards and even Mickey himself in an attempt to seek and destroy the frozen head of Walt Disney. However, doing so inadvertently triggers Eisner’s doomsday device… unless you can stop it.

Sound like fun? Well then, Los Disneys, a new video game, which I learned about through the CrunchGear site, may be just what you’re looking for.

Apparently this is a reissue of an older game that used be compatible only with Macs. According to the Los Disneys site, the new version “is now compatible with Windows and even allows for cross-platform network gaming.” You can download the game at the site.

Some other site features, including “Disneyworld Babylon,” described as a “discussion forum for disgruntled tourists and employees of the Magic Kingdom,” weren’t working on a recent visit.

From what I can see of the game via the screenshots, it looks like it gives players the opportunity to waste some beloved Disney characters. I can’t imagine that Disney will sit still for this unauthorized use of their intellectual property. It’ll be interesting to see how they respond.

Disclaimer: Save the hate mail. I have nothing against Disney. In fact, I love Disney, as my participation in Disney-related events like Magic Meets and MouseFest will attest. I just thought the Orlando-loving community would like to know about this.

Also, I’m not a gamer myself, but I’d love to hear gamer reaction to Los Disneys. Feel free to post in the Comments.
