The Last Barfighter: An Arcade Game That Pours You A Beer If You Win.
Call it a cross between Street Fighter and Tapper
We’ve seen some crazy video games in our day. There’s one called Toilet Kids from Taiwan, which is almost as cool as one called Super Pii Pii Brothers. Anyways, those games are nothing compared to The Last Barfighter — a collaboration between ad agency McKinney and Raleigh, N.C. beer company Big Boss Brewery.
In the game opponents kick, burn and “butt slap” each other in a bloodsport-ish battle royale that plays like a cross between Street Fighter and Tapper. But instead of bragging rights, the victor wins a pint of beer. (The brewery is known for exceptional Belgian wit ale and American IPAs.) Yes, this is correct, the winner gets beer. Genius. Big Boss plans to offer the game at festivals and events. No word if the technology is being used elsewhere. Are you reading this, Barcade?
