The Liberal Crime Squad Wiki
Liberal Crime Squad Strikes


Welcome to Liberal Crime Squad! The Conservatives have taken the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government. Over time, the Liberal laws of this nation will erode and turn the country into a BACKWOODS YET CORPORATE NIGHTMARE. To prevent this from happening, the Liberal Crime Squad was established. The mood of the country is shifting, and we need to turn things around. Go out on the streets and indoctrinate Conservative automatons. That is, let them see their True Liberal Nature. Then arm them and send them forth to Stop Evil. Eventually the public will fall behind us, and we will put more Elite Liberals in government for greater justice.

We have attempted to include foul language, graphic violence, politics, religion, sexual references, adult situations, narcotics, prostitution, bodily functions and bad pickup lines, but Bay 12 Games recognizes that there might be omissions which will make some players uncomfortable. In light of these facts, use your discretion when making decisions about downloading LCS.

Obligatory Conservative disclaimer

Liberal Crime Squad is a game. Any person who attempts to perform the activities described in the game in the real world is silly and will probably go to jail for a very, very long time — assuming they don't die in the process. The designers, developers, and players of Liberal Crime Squad neither advocate nor condone this behavior.
