plan a presidential campaign
Magic Lantern games has just released their presidential campaign game, Frontrunner. There’s a story about it in USA Today, and more information at their website. I wonder how people are going to like pitting Kerry and Bush against each other – fictionally…?
A few months back I noted the use of the Howard Dean campaign game. If you’re interested in political games you should read my summary post on the Bin Laden games and look up Gonzalo Frasca and Ian Bogost’s Watercooler Games weblog, check out Newsgaming and also Gonzalo’s articles about how games could, perhaps, make real changes – Ideological Videogames/a>, Videogames of the Oppressed and Ephemeral Games.
