Maids With Balloons. (This Is An Actual Game)



“Help these maids gather balloons and use them to fend off seagulls in a set of fun minigames.” Yes, this is the premise of an actual game on the Xbox Live Marketplace, titled Maids with Balloons.


And yes, that’s a screenshot. You can find more below, and a trial version here.


Unfortunately, the game fails to impress in the “cruelty,” “partial nudity” and “sexual overtones” categories, so really, the question you’re left asking is, “What was the point?”
