Sex, Religion, Possession, Death

Bob is the scum of the Heavens, an angel in name only. He's been asked by the `Big Man´ Himself to rub out those "Screw Ups down on Earth". He has the power to possess anyone and use sinners to slay sinners. He can enter over 40 characters and control them to mutilate, sneak, impale, charm and creatively wipe out other vermin, but it takes cunning to decide who to possess...

* As Bob, you can possess and control any of the over 40 characters, including: Prostitutes, cops, behemoths, priests, bouncers, sub girls, bondage dancers, gigolos, demons, chots, welders, nuclear workers, medics, bartenders, dwarves, pimps, monsters, animals and much more!

* Over 10 different weapons, including: rocket propelled harpoons, needle guns, rocket launchers, flame throwers, grenades, stun guns.

* Use enemies as weapons.

* All characters have real skin covering their bones, resulting in skin that jiggles and stretches in all the right places.

posthumans - the Chots (devolved rather)
cannibalism - it is said the Chots eat their own. (Unverified if this is actually seen or if the player can perform this when possessing one of them.)

--- notes
religion-christian --- the most I can gather from this game is that there's a single god who sends out Bob the cherub down to Earth to fix things because satan or some other evil devil/demon is messing things up. This seems to be more as punishment for Bob than actually to save Earth. The focus of the game is humor, however, so the religious content may be only superficial.
