Go here to watch what could be the world's first studio-made parody game

With a new record-breaking Call Of Duty game released every year, some would say the military shooter genre is overdue a spot of parody.

Epic Games’ subsidiary Chair Entertainment has responded to the call beautifully – not with a blog post or some ‘whacky’ cartoon, but an actual game built to mock Activision’s sacred cow.

Known as Duty Calls, the game jabs at Call Of Duty’s incomprehensible plot lines, obsession with cinematic vistas, and occasional moments of jingoism.

Perhaps most impressive is how Epic Games and Chair Entertainment threw the game together during final stages of developing Bulletstorm – an FPS billed as an antidote to the stagnated FPS genre.
