17 years ago, the world was given Mortal Kombat; a video game that was partially responsible for the creation of the ESRB due to high levels of violence, blood, and gore. Needless to say, it was a hit. However, no game is perfect for its entire target audience, not even Mortal Kombat. The question remains; how can the remaining target demographic be captured by the series? It’s all a matter of niche customization. The first step in Mortal Kombat’s complete demographic domination is here; philosphy and psychology nerds, get ready to have your socks rocked (assuming your socks exist in the shared perspective universe we inhabit and are not aspects of your own multiple perspective fractal universe). We give you….MORAL KOMBAT!
This holiday season, be prepared to kick some metaphysical ass!
Lindsey and I were chatting on AIM, when she accidentally said “moral kombat” instead of “mortal kombat”. Lindsey picked up on her mistake, and I started suggesting matchups like Freud vs. Nietzsche, etc. We moved the conversation to Twitter, and it occurred to me to make a blog post about it. I mentioned it to Lindsey who suggested I find pictures of philosophers and put together a character selection screen. I picked out some philosophers, psychologists, and thinkers and put together what you see above. And so, Moral Kombat was born!
-Because I said so
Fine Print Legalese Mumbo Jumbo:
Moral Kombat is the sole intellectual property of the World of Meh creators, Chris and Lindsey. Any proceeds from this concept must first be approved by Chris and Lindsey and appropriate compensation agreed upon. If you want to make a real Moral Kombat game, we want lots and lots of MONEY.
