Truth Invaders Game Busts Campaign B.S

Online games spoofing the 2008 presidential election are plentiful these days, but Truth Invaders takes one of the more unique approaches that we’ve seen.

In the Space Invaders knockoff, players select among several questionable statements made by both the Obama and McCain campaigns and then try to turn lies (red) to truth (green).

Designer Jeremy Bernstein, who previously created The Redistricting Game, describes Truth Invaders as meets Space Invaders.

    I have learned to ignore/discount anyone and anything that uses the word "truth".  Chances are, they are full of crap.  Case in point: Rush Limbaugh, Michael Moore, Al Franken, etc all claim to speak the "truth".  They can’t all be right, but they certainly can all be wrong.

    I remember that, he played the space invaders Mccain game then he went on to play some FPS and pretended it was a Barack game as a joke.

    Reminds me of that Daily Show bit where they compared McCain’s ‘Facebook Invaders’ to what Sen. Obama had, something that I believe was ripped right out of Gears of War, only with Obama as the protagonist.

    Made me lol, anyway.
