TSA Frisky is an independent VR game that had garnered interest from fans with over one million views on Let's Play on Youtube.  As a TSA Agent, your job isn't all apples and oranges, you must manage your stress levels while holding authority clearing all passengers and luggage through multiple levels of checkpoints to progress your way up the TSA ladder.

Each shift, players will unlock new gear to make their jobs easier. Better tech means higher stakes though, and they’ll have to clear more people in less time. The progression is important in this game, as the developers wanted to make sure there were some clear goals and players will earn their promotions with the end goal to get into management, where they’ll never have to touch another person again – in the meantime they’ll have to pat down passengers and relieve them of the ridiculous,  and sometimes rude, contraband they may find.

Now with TSA Frisky on Springboard VR, players have a chance to challenge each other in a dual of the betters in the Virtual Department of Airport Security and see who will rise above in ranks as a TSA Agent together at VR Arcade hangouts and facilities globally.
