Pareffa The Ref

Making the right calls, in the right rhythm, is harder than it looks in this PaRappa The Rapper-themed tribute to the tragicomic antics of this year’s replacement NFL referees. All you want to do is call a few penalties, collect your paycheck, and go home, but the hot dog-throwing crowd has other ideas. Dodge their attack, but don’t lose the beat!

Pareffa The Ref is an original game created for The Gameological Society's Play The Year retrospective. We invited four indie development teams to make a browser game inspired by a major news story from 2012, with two weeks to bring their game from concept to reality. And now you get to experience the results. Play Pareffa The Ref at!
