The American Dream is an upcoming VR game that takes a long, hard look at American’s gun problem. We played a short demo at PAX West and interviewed the developers last year and came away impressed with how well the team at Samurai Punk were able to blend the sardonic parody premise with rewarding gameplay. In the actual game, everything plays out as if you’re being treated to a tour of an alternate version of the future, similar to Fallout. Except instead of being obsessed with nuclear bombs, the world is even more obsessed with guns.
The latest trailer, embedded above, puts a new spin on the premise by positioning it as an old-school classic educational video about the usefulness of guns in American life. People use them for everything from feeding their children and doing laundry to driving cars and putting holes in bagels.
We’re interested in seeing just how far the satire will go when it releases for PC-based VR headsets (we demoed it on Oculus Rift with Touch previously) later this summer.
