This is the setting for G4's animated SitCom ''Code Monkeys'', which revolves around the antics at Game-A-Vision, a fictional video game company. Aside from Jerry, an amiable [[TheEveryman everyman]] game programmer who's more than a bit of a pushover, Jerry's [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold mischievous, obnoxious friend]] and [[TheStoner stoner]] Dave, and Mary, the [[OnlySaneMan put-upon]] [[TheSmurfettePrinciple sole female]] programmer, most of the crew at Game-A-Vision are crazy, stupid, sadistic, or some combination. There's Mr. Larrity, a [[BadBoss hot-headed, money-grubbing]], [[CloudCuckoolander borderline insane]] Texas millionaire who becomes Game-A-Vision's owner in the premiere episode and shows a fondness for [[GambitRoulette wildly complicated schemes]]; Mr. Larrity's [[DumbMuscle dimwit]] [[JerkJock jock]] son Dean; Todd, a [[FatBastard fat]], [[SmallNameBigEgo narcissistic]], and often creepy uber-geek; "Black Steve", the [[HairTriggerTemper ill-tempered]] accountant and [[AngryBlackMan token black guy]]; Clarence, the [[CampGay outrageously gay]] audio designer who always talks in a sing-song voice; Clare, the [[ReallyGetsAround flirtatious]] receptionist; and Benny, a mouthy, [[{{Keet}} hyperactive]] Korean kid who [[BasementDweller lives in the basement]] and works as a play tester.

Much of the show's humor comes from spoofing not only the video game industry, but VideoGameTropes as well. The animation style is entirely in 8-bit style pixel art (which resembles ''RiverCityRansom'' sprites), complete with status bars at the top and bottom of the screen that display absurd things depending on the action in the show (like a health meter that decreases when someone gets injured or killed, a "Douche" meter when Todd starts talking, question marks appearing when Larrity starts making bizarre comments, etc, etc.).
