National Republican Senatorial Committee Launches 'Mission Majority' Game

August 25, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has released a 2014 midterm election-themed game called Mission Majority. The game stars an elephant named Giopi, but before you can control him you'll have to give up your email, Google Plus or Facebook information to receive some political mailings about various Senate races around the country. After willingly adding yourself to the NRSC e-mail list, the game charges you with helping the GOP... get a majority in the Senate.

If you were expecting anything else, then you are probably confused and need some time away from Twitter and Facebook.

Still, it's an interesting new approach for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, who is trying to find and capture some of the youth vote. Whether it succeeds with this particular update is anyone's guess.

I'm thoroughly confused... Are we actually saying the Republican party, famed for how it targets the elderly and whatnot as their core audience, actually released a game for younger people? And to boot, the character's name (yes I know it's just a phonetic of GOP) looks like it's Italian...

Pretty pathetic IMO however, that they force you to give up your contact info in order to play it.

The majority of those in D.C and in politics that go after video games are actually Liberal Democrats. Most Republican states have tax credits for video game companies to move there.

I'm curious to see the UI for how you go about disenfranchising minority voters. Fortunately, with this being Senate based, they didn't have to bother with the complicated mechanics of implementing gerrymandering.
