The Illinois Senate may have given Rod Blagojevich the boot via impeachment, but game developer Yanki.JP is celebrating the disgraced ex-Guv’s reign with with Pay2Play, a new iPhone app.
The game’s website lets us know that this is not exactly a hardcore political sim:
Pay2Play is the game of trading and danger. How much money can YOU make selling senate seats? Head all over Illinois trading your way to success!
You have 30 days to pay back the unions, make tons of cash, and get out of town all before getting impeached! Transposing a trading game such as Dopewars with a slick interface on the iPhone.
Also a gaming first! Alcopops make it to the game scene for the first time. See what Illinois politicians have been so worried about!
The alcopops reference is a dig at a recent Illinois law prohibiting the depiction of the sweet, boozy drinks in games aimed at children – not that there has ever been an alcopop depicted in a video game.
Eager to try your hand at corrupt Illinois politics? You’ll have to wait a bit longer. Pay2Play is currently on hold pending AppStore approval.
