Polokwane croc debacle inspires game parody

“Gotta catch ‘em all”

If you think that the chaotic (and often comedic) news stories in our little corner of Africa don’t reach international eyes, you’d be wrong.

Popular gaming publication GamesRadar have picked up on the little issue of 15,000 loose crocodiles in Limpopo, and crafted together a preview for a new crocodile catching game (which doesn’t actually exist).

“As the plucky farm hand at a now croc-less Crocodile Farm, it’s up to you to bring home 15,000 escaped crocodiles. Working from your base in Polokwane, you must man the phones and listen to reports of croc sightings before taking to your trusty 4×4 and travelling to your destination through accurately mapped African countryside,” describe GamesRadar.

GamesRadar even thought out the Wii U-exclusive features of Polokwane Snap, and also detail their dream of a limited edition.

Well done to GamesRadar, for snapping up one of the best gaming ideas since, well, ever.
