Want to Be the 1%? There's an App for That

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be the 1 percent — one of the wealthiest people in America — it’s your lucky day! There's an app for that. Which means you can be the 1% anywhere — in the airport or in the tub.

Spur of the Moment Games is about to launch their debut mobile app called, “Clear the Park,”where you get to play the role of an executive who “clears the park” of protesters by throwing things at them from your office or luring them away with prizes like Radiohead tickets, Ben & Jerry’s coupons — or a sandwich. If you win, you get that gorgeous park view back for when you’re kicking back in the corner office. If the protesters win, they may turn your office into a Ben & Jerry’s or something — Sorry, I meant a Ken & Gerri’s.

(Ben & Jerry’s came out as an early supporter of the Occupy movement. The developers have approached the socially-conscious ice-cream maker but haven’t yet gotten the approval to use their name. So, for now, it's Ken & Gerri’s.)
