Bad Day Airport

“The Airport” is one of the disasters in Bad Day LA. We included some nonsense about how the “food” is made, the baggage is searched, and the interrogation process is handled. It’s in the airport that the player acquires the smart-bomb weapon, a pair of nail clippers (The BDLA-9000).

I was going to comment on the recent airport-related nonsense currently gripping the US and UK, but this guy did it better than I could have:

We Have Met the Enemy in the War On Terror. . . and He Is Us, by Doug Newman
Thursday’s news read as follows: “Airline passengers around the country stood in line for hours and airport trash bins bulged with everything from mouthwash and shaving cream to maple syrup and fine wine Thursday in a security crackdown prompted by the discovery of a terror plot in Britain.”

I too keep wondering when Americans are going to wake up to the fact that all of these Bad Days are happening for a reason. And it has nothing to do with protecting freedom or spreading democracy.

  1. Thanks for talking about this American. I wish more people would. Im personally in love with the quote
    “When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. When you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.”
    How true that is.

  2. Hey, I just wanted to thank you for making this game. Living in the midwest, sometimes I go a little crazy thinking I’m the only one for whom “they hate our freedom” is not a sufficient explanation for why people would be willing to blow themselves (and others) up. I know the game won’t change how media folks do their business; they’ve had too much success with fear-mongering, but at least it lets rational, thinking people know they’re not alone in thinking that all this is a little insane.
    Also, I was impressed by your identification of Wii as being “the only true next-gen console.” I’m a big fan of what Nintendo’s doing, and I was impressed that you would pay respects to that despite the fact that the game you’re promoting is coming out for one of their competitors. When the creator of the Katamari games said he wasn’t interested in the Wii, I took it as a sign that he was more or less a Sony shill. Nice to see you’re loyal to your vision and what genuinely interests you.
    Anyway, sorry about the long comment. Just wanting to give some positive feedback. Good luck with everything. I hope Bad Day LA does everything you hope it will.

  3. What’s ever funnier is that security could inadvertently be making an ‘uber’ bomb by mixing all those chemical and liquids together, don’t they know that’s how ‘the enemy’ make WMDs these days?… all it’s takes is a lit cigarette (as the advert for safety in the home reminds us).

    “Irony Alert” doesn’t quite fit the bill on this one!
