In Lebanon, First Use of Games As an Election Campaign Tool

Here at GamePolitics we lay no claim to understanding the complexities of Lebanese politics.

But we do note that Lebanon-based WixelStudios has launched what it says is the first use of games for a political campaign in the troubled nation. From the company’s website:

For the first time in Lebanon, games are used as an election propaganda! …

Wixel Studios produced an interactive animated documentary for the Liberty Front… in addition to the documentaries you will find four games accompanying to the stories.

The four browser-based mini-games, which are nicely varied in presentation, involve themes in which the player does battle with Syrian forces. Based on its Wikipedia entry, Lebanon’s dealings with Syria is a prime concern of the Liberty Front.

Check out the games here.
