Bulletstorm devs release Duty Calls

In a quite cheeky bit of marketing, Bulletstorm devs People Can Fly have released a free FPS title that parodies Activision's FPS series Call of Duty.

Called Duty Calls, the 758MB download doesn't take itself too seriously. In fact, here are some choice snippets of dialogue:

"Here's your objective: blah blah blah blah blah blah blah secret base blah blah blah nuclear war blah blah blah blah blah blah counting on you."

"I'm gonna point at you and say something serious to further develop the game's storyline. Oh, I'm dead, increasing the drama of the story."

"You cannot shoot me unless the game goes into slow motion for some reason and I become easy to shoot."

"I am a paratrooper because that's a real life war scenario. you cannot shoot me because this is a cut scene to make the game feel more dramatic like a movie. Soon I'll be landing. I have landed on the ground."

"I have a bog gravelly voice with a big full accent. I have an eyepatch and I wear a nice suit. This means I am leader of bad guy. I hold nuclear missile bomb. I will never give nuclear missile bomb to you."
"Give the nuclear missile bomb to us, enemy leader boss. Then put your hands up."
"OK. USA is dominate."

The game's 'hero' also says "boring" every time he shoots his gun and can pick up inventory items accompanied by messages such as "500 Sheets Of Wide Ruled Notebook Paper Added To Inventory".

Players can also rank up in an increasingly absurd manner, with the final rank being "Sergeant Of The Master Sergeants Most Important Person Of Extreme Sergeants To The Max!"

You can watch a video of the game below, or download it yourself at the official site.
