The First Ever Realistic Thanksgiving Simulator

If you only play one game about an endless queue, make it this one.

Posted on

While brands and lifestyle magazines never miss a chance to remind you that Thanksgiving revolves around one orgiastic, earth-toned meal, we all know the truth: Thanksgiving is about waiting in line.

It starts at the train station. It continues at the buffet-style serving setup. And it ends in a mist of blood red rage during Black Friday. Finally, a game has arrived with the courage to speak truth to deceitful power: Waiting in Line 3D.

Waiting in Line 3D finds you in the middle of an endless line. If you do nothing, you fall asleep and lose. You must punch yourself to stay awake. Punch yourself too much, though, and you die and lose. Good luck.
