Chronic 2005 is an open ended adventure allowing you to play as one of four distinct characters, each with their own special skills and abilities. With $2,000 in cash and $5,000 in debt to the loan shark, your journey begins at the Los Angeles airport as you explore the neighboring cities in search of the best suppliers and buyers. Upgrading your guns, armor, hiring thugs and staying ahead of the cops soon becomes the way of life.

“Pimpin’ aint easy, but if you want to get to the top, visiting the car dealership and buying a van to transport all the Chronic Girls will make you some fast cash,” said DMC, writer and producer of the “Chronic 2005 Anthem” title track.

The free version of the game allows you to experience up to 31 days of the adventure. A Premium Membership account that allows you to play as long as 120 days and hire mercenaries, drivers, bodyguards and pimps is available for as little as $2.49 per month.

Chronic 2005, a highly popular yet controversial game, has been met with open arms by the online gaming community with over 250,000 games being played world-wide.
