“Two mall shop-girls find out they’ve been stiffed wages that the men in their department haven’t. Can you help them make up the difference?
Lost Wage Rampage is a fast-paced riot grrrl driving game: Grand Theft Auto crossed with Thelma & Louise. The goal is to steal as many valuable objects from the mall as possible, in order to get the money that should have been the girls’ in the first place. Drift, skid, and rocket your car through the mall, crashing into and collecting valuable loot to add to their payback. Get your score as close as you can to the money they should have made while navigating infinite and constantly changing mall layouts. And look out: an ever-growing presence of mall cops is intent on stopping your heist.” – About, Lost Wage Rampage
