With the 2020 US elections, the studio Bright commissioned us to think and create a content, which eventually became a caricatural video game, around the event.
The first thing we did after our research around the two candidates, was to list ideas of special moves that would match the political program and beliefs of Trump and Biden
Like for Trump, a Heatwave with trees burning for the “Climate change denial” or the attack of a flock of blue birds for “Excessive tweeting”
The gameplay of "Unpresidential!" is inspired by casual fighting games available on mobiles.
With its dozens of special moves ("Tweet Salvo!", "Russian Collusion", "Mega MAGA!", "Working Class Joe", "Unavoidable Tax!"...) and its dozens of punchlines, this game offers to discover the programs and politics of each of the White House contestants, in a parodic, funny and absurd way.
Each single shot, each special shot, each winning or losing game is accompanied by jokes related to the life or program of the candidate made by voice impersonators.
Also, "Special Events" can occur randomly ("Coronavirus!", "Impeachment!"...) during which the player will have to perform a combination of moves in order to get a "Mega Attack" ("Mega MAGA!" for Trump or "Obama Bromance!".
The game was supposed to receive additional content to renew its playability with new locations (A political rally in a stadium, The UN HQ, the Oval Office...) and new characters with their own abilities (Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Barack Obama...)
The game was available on Google play and Apple store. We also designed a website for the game to help the communication and share with different medias
We're always looking for new ways to push the boundaries of creativity, and we're excited to see what we can accomplish together.
