Following the release of Salad Days, a recent Treble Album of the Week, Mac DeMarco is now the subject of a new video game developed by Subbacultcha. It’s called “Mac DeMarco: Squish ‘Em,” and it’s actually pretty hard! In the game, you try to squish as many crawling insects as you can using only your cigarette (we — and Mac, himself — recommend Viceroy). It’s a little tricky but you get the hang of it after a while, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself at the end of the day having gotten very little work done. Mmmm… how about just one more round?
Play the game here.
