Sprung

Kara Petrich, a Spanaway, WA mother, got an unexpected surprise the other day when she bought her daughter a copy of Petz: Monkeyz House  Instead of the simian simulator, the cartridge contained T-rated "dating sim" Sprung. It wasn't just the wrong box, mind you, it was the wrong cartridge.

Sprung contains dialog like:  "You wanna rock my mountains, don't you?" and "As your friend, I demand that you get out there and hook up with as many boys as possible." This is not appropriate for an eight-year-old.

"I want parents to know that you can't just hand kids a game and then send them off," Petrich said.

Wise words. And a weird story, eh? Both games are from Ubisoft, so I suspect someone in the factory slipped up, but I feel I should mention that willingly giving your children games in which common words like "Monkeys" and "Pets" are spelled with a "Z" instead of a traditional "S" is bad parenting too!
