VOTE!!! The Game from Chair and Epic now available for free in App Store
VOTE!!! The Game has been releases by Epic Games and ChAIR Entertainment. It’s a free, cartoon-style game for iOS where US president Barack Obama and Mitt Romney go at it, and it’s in support of the Rock the Vote incentive.
In the game, players assume the role of one of the two men in a “slapstick battle for the White House.”
Players can dress up the candidates and put “fun and iconic items” into their hands. Players use their skills to unlock score boosters, and earned votes are awarded to the candidate of the player’s choosing as they are tallied in tracked in real-time worldwide.
Here’s the official word on the incentive:
“In addition to Rock the Vote, ChAIR and Epic Games have also teamed with Video Game Voters Network and Project Vote Smart to provide easy access to informative, real-world voter resources where gamers can register to vote, learn more about the candidates and issues, and become more informed about the election process.
“A portion of the proceeds will go to Rock the Vote to support their efforts encouraging voter registration among young voters.”
VOTE!!! The Game is available now and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch 3 (16GB+), iPod touch 4, iPad, iPad 2, and the new iPad.
