Exterior of the PU Games 001

Exterior of the PU Games.

PU Games is a location in Paradise Lost. Formerly the Bank, it is now inhabited by the Game Devs, still with the intent of exploiting the wallets of the populace. The company's notable departments include:

  • Cosmetic Items
  • Day One DLC
  • The Amazing Microtransaction Super Computer

One of the errands given to the Postal Dude by Papa Desi on Tuesday is to trash their offices as they act as the VD Clan's opposition in the game development field.

Trivia Edit

  • The company is a parody of asshole video game devs who exploit their gullible audiences.
  • PU Games' name is a parody of Electronic Arts, or "EA" games. Their extreme reliance on paid DLC and micro-transactions is also a satirical slam at the company's financial practices.
  • Several references to Double Fine and Tim Schafer appear throughout the building:
    • A poster advertising a game called "Psychonuts: The Seminal Adventure That'll Squeeze Out Trusting Fans for Years to Come!" appears several times, a reference to Psychonauts. The game's main character is portrayed as a humanoid penis with similar facial hair and fashion sense to Tim Schafer.
    • Another poster advertises a game called "Wastebase DP-0: A Simulation of a Concept of a Complete Game". This is a parody of SpaceBase DF-9, a Double Fine game that was cancelled during the Early Access stages of development due to financial issues. The source code for the game was later released as compensation.
    • An arcade cabinet for a game called "Stocking" can be found, referencing Stacking.
    • On the PU CEO's computer, a "Punchstarter" page for a game called "Loot 'n' Stash" can be seen. This is a reference to Hack 'n' Slash, of which Schafer was a producer.
    • In the elephant foot wastebasket (itself a reference to Apocalypse Weekend) next to the PU CEO's desk, a discarded game box for "Cost-U-Quest" can be seen. This is a reference to Double Fine's Costume Quest, which was later adapted into an Amazon Prime series.
  • Several computers in the officers have the webpage "Old Man Murray" on their monitors. Although this texture is an older asset, Erik Wolpaw, former writer of the site and writer for Valve Software, was also the co-writer of Psychonauts.
  • Several computers in the office have parodies of real-life websites on their screens, including 4chan, Reddit, Facebook, Facepunch, etc.
