Animated TV show, South Park released a new episode, "Informative Murder Porn", which is a spoof on the highly successful indie game, Minecraft.
The episode unravels as the children are worried that their parents always watch "murder porn" (which is about married couple killing each other) after one such incident with their schoolmate. All the kids vouch for a parental lock on the channels that show such content.
The children set up a question, answering which the lock is opened. The question is "How do you tame a horse in Minecraft?"
This measure by the kids pushes parents to learn Minecraft. Eventually they learn the game and start acting out the game in real life. The kids are now forced to take harsher measures to stop their parents from spoiling the game, Forbes reported.
The game touches upon various issues in the real-world, such as monopoly of local cable networks, the false notion that video games are violent when adults prefer to watch more violent TV shows and young kids' craze for Minecraft.
However, this is not the first time that South Park is exploring video games for its content. Previously the show ran an episode titled "Make Love Not Warcraft," which was about Blizzard's popular multiplayer online game.
Meanwhile, there is a new game based on the TV show, written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, titled, "South Park: The Stick of Truth". The game is expected to be released on Dec 10.
