Brave New Films Gives PacMan New Enemies: Palin, Limbaugh, O'Reilly and Beck

Just in time for your "election hangover," Brave New Films has a new game out in which a personalized PacMan, the immortal steady circle with a voracious mouth, gets chased down not by the usual ghostly goons--but rather by "Faux News'" commentators spouting angry catchphrases.

That's right, the floating heads of Bill O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh try to run down the hungry little guy--who is personalized based on the name of whomever is emailed a link to the game-- following him around a field while he tries to gobble up his beloved white circles.

Meanwhile, they're shouting, calling him a pinhead and wishing for his failure! Not pleasant for poor PacMan. But definitely cathartic for incensed internet users tired of right-wing rhetoric. "Reignite your progressive passion by showing them what you got," Brave New Film's Robert Greenwald and Laura Beatty urge players.
