In the wake of Father's Day, Bumrise players are making a joyful mess in the streets of New York.
New York / Hamburg, June 22nd, 2011 The homeless people from the browsergame Bumrise are going completely wild this week because of Father's Day.
In the games, players control virtual homeless people and make them evolve in the streets of New York. They make progress by selling the bottles they have collected, begging, or fighting against other beggars. Of course, the game is based on satire, and each "bum" also has to drink more alcohol to improve faster.
For Father's Day, the bums have been invited to raise their glass together and make the most of the time spent with their friends. They had to drink until they went to hospital to complete their daily task and get a valuable credit very useful for the development of their character.
To celebrate properly, bums also get special offers: junk kits to equip their characters and improve faster.
Last but not least, the players are now competing in a writing contest. They have to write a poem about their fathers or about Father's Day. The best ones will win virtual money as well as an award to decorate their profiles. This contest proves once again that street life can generate new kinds of poetry.
