Codex Gamicus

Bloodlust Software is a developer of humorous PC computer games. It was originally formed in 1992 by two high school students (Ethan Petty and Icer Addis) who were angry at the rise of movements against computer game violence. To parody the situation, Bloodlust ended up making excessively violent games.
