Tongue-in-cheek TSA VR simulator, TSA Frisky out today.
TSA Frisky s a tongue-in-cheek look into the world of a TSA agent. Think Job Simulator but with something that people hate dealing with at airports. The game throws you right in the middle of a busy airport security checkpoint. Dulles International Airport security is jealous of all the action you'll be getting as a new recruit. Pat-down suspicious passengers and look through unassuming luggage to find pesky contraband items. The game originally started as a student project at the Savannah College of Art and Design and looks to poke a little fun at this now common aspect of traveling. Much like the indie hit Papers Please, the game takes a serious topic and adds fun and humor while still managing to keep an aspect of the hectic tension in the gameplay mechanics.
TSA Frisky is now available for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality Headsets on Steam for $14.99.
"VR creates a unique platform that allows developers to create unique first-person experiences," says Remy Bustani of Out There Entertainment. "Everyone hates the security checkpoints at airports, so we thought it would be fun to experience the other side of that nightmare."
Players will have to earn their promotions through multiple levels of stress-inducing checkpoints and unruly travelers in order to find success in their department. Each shift players will unlock new equipment to make their jobs easier but with better tech comes higher numbers of people and less time to get through them all.
