Much has been written about the ethics of punching fascists, but not so much on the ethics of whacking them with your purse in a video game, and that is what the new indie game Handväska! is all about.
The game is pretty simple. Players see from the perspective of a person with a purse. They use the keyboard to move around and have 15 seconds to whack as many lego-looking fascists with your purse as possible.
As the game’s description says, “Line up your swings, knock baddies into each other like bowling pins, and thwack your way to a 100% victory.”
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I would like
To smash nazis with you

The game is available for download here, with a suggested donation of $3. The first $500 went to the Southern Poverty Law Center, according to Friedhoff. The remaining donations will go to CUNY CLEAR.
