I’m going to be honest with you, if you have important things to today, stop reading now. Learn from my mistakes because I’ve already lost a significant chunk of my day playing this godforsaken ScoMo Simulator game.
To backtrack, I discovered ScoMo Simulator about an hour ago, and I’m obsessed. It’s made to look like an old school flash game, and it’s a little bit like Snake with way more political snark.
The idea is that you’re a floating picture of Scott Morrison with flowers on his head, and you’re constantly followed around by a trail of prayer hand emojis. You have to run over as many fires as possible to put them out, while avoiding fire trucks and collecting handshakes and cricket stumps.
If you collect a handshake, you get put on a Hawaiian Airlines plane and get to zoom around with extra speed for a little bit, and the cricket stumps will put out all the fires around you. You lose if you hit a fire truck or get overrun by the sheer amount of fire.
The about section of the site brings up a pop up which reads:
“Made by an aussie. Please donate to RFS/WIRES if you can, revenue from these ads are going to these organizations. ScoMo is a joke.”
There’s also a donate button which takes you to the RFS donation page.
Back in 2015, Bronwyn Bishop got the boot after spending $5k of taxpayers money on a helicopter to take her 80kms. The scandal, affectionately called #ChopperGate, was everywhere.
It also sparked a brilliant game – this one inspired by Flappy Bird (R.I.P.) – called Bronny Copter. Sadly the link to that game doesn’t work anymore, but here’s a video of how it worked.
So off you go, enjoy wasting the rest of your work day playing ScoMo Simulator, cause that’s absolutely, definitely not what I’ll be doing…
