Trash Wars Lampoons Toronto’s Sanitation Strike

A recently-concluded strike by sanitation workers in Toronto serves as the subject matter for Trash Wars, an online parody game.

As the Toronto Star reports, the game was designed by Hafiz Kassam, owner of Q-KMBR Games. Kassam told the newspaper:

It just popped into my head. I have made games in the past… just for the sake of making them, but I wanted to (release) something for the mainstream public – something with a message versus just a game.


I dumbed [the complexity] down so people don’t get overwhelmed. (It’s) for people who don’t play video games that often.

Indeed, the game simply involves shooting ever-increasing numbers of rats as you stand atop a large pile of uncollected trash bags.
