The 11 Weirdest Branded Video Games

by Dillon Baker
A couple weeks ago, Warby Parker, the trendy glasses startup, announced its first video game: Worbs. Made in collaboration with gaming magazine Kill Screen, Worbs is a simple in-browser matching game good for helping you kill five minutes. It doesn’t make much much sense—what does matching circles have to do with glasses? Still, it was a relatively innocuous way to promote the ...Read the full article

Uber Wants You To Play Its New iOS Game And Become A Driver

Uber's exclusive iOS game isn't a full-throttle racing experience but rather a recruitment tool for new drivers. Follow Leah Becerra: See more at Transcript: Thursday, Uber asked the Web, "Ever wondered what it's like to be an Uber driver-partner?" We're guessing no one who hasn't already applied has ever had that thought, but the company is still using this idea to push a new mobile game that's exclusively for iOS. It's called "Uber Drive," and the point of the game is get your passenger from point A to point B. And rather than driving around like a mad person — like in "Crazy Taxi" — Uber says more points are given "for identifying the safest and most efficient routes." There's just no way that'll be fun, but it doesn't sound like that's the point. The New York Times' Mike Isaac says the app is trying to recruit people who aren’t already looking into driving for Uber. He writes, "Users can sign up to become drivers and upload their applications and screening materials directly from inside the game." Uber has also added educational elements to the game so players can become more knowledgeable about the city. For now, the only city that's playable is San Francisco. But if the game does well, Uber plans to add more cities. (Video via Expedia) The Verge reports the game was an Uber employee's side project — meaning whether it flops or not doesn't matter. Which could be good because it sounds really lame. Unless of course you're an Uber driver working in San Fran, who wants to brush up on your Bay Area knowledge.

PSX Longplay [162] Hooters Road Trip Played by: NPI This game is released in 2002, at the demise of the Playstation. This is an awful game. The controls are awful. The car swings left and right out of control even with a tiny push of a button. Later I found out it is much more controllable if you play in first person, which I did for most of the time. Except big racks, this game has one more good feature: You can drive a Yugo! In this game the developers didn't had the right to call it a Yugo, so it's a Fugo, which I used to beat stage 2 (09:22). However this car is slow and hard to control. Just like the real one :)
