How to gamble the American election campaign with a fighting video game?

Design

What if video games could convey political ideas, or even become a committed parody medium? "Unpresidential!" proposes to embody Donald Trump or Joe Biden in a real 3D fighting game, where each attack is an opportunity for each character to send a Punch-Line. Donald Trump V.S. Joe Biden engaged in a merciless struggle in "UNPRESIDENTIAL!", a parodic fighting video game.

Concept

Editorial

With its dozens of special moves ("Tweet Salvo!", "Collusion Collision", "Mega MAGA!", "Working Class Joe", "Unavoidable Tax!"...) and its hundred Punchlines, this game offers to discover the programs and politics of each of the competitors at the White House, in a parodic, funny and absurd way. Each simple move, each special move, each winning or losing game is accompanied by valves related to the life or program of each contestant.

"Politics is a combat sport"

The gameplay of "Unpresidential!" is inspired by casual fighting games on mobile phones: Simple Blows (left, right, head shots, legs) and Special Blows (about ten per candidate). Similarly, "Special Events" can intervene randomly ("Coronavirus!", "Impeachment!"...) during which the player will have to make a combination of hits in order to get out of it. If necessary, a "Mega Attack" ("MAGA!" for Trump or "Obama Bromance!" for Biden) will be triggered.

Parody in video games

"Unpresidential!" is one of the few video games parodying political life. According to Abdel Bounane, president of the 3D content studio Bright, and producer of the game: "At a time when parody and caricature are being challenged all over the world, I am convinced that strong messages can be conveyed through video games. Games are a powerful vector for conveying ideas, and their playful nature makes them a tool of choice for caricatured political protagonists, or even for conveying committed parodic messages - in this case, players will quickly discover in this game which candidate we attribute the term "Unpresidential"!"".

A game that can evolve with the times

Planned to evolve with the news, "Unpresidential!" was designed to:

. Propose new special moves according to political developments in the United States and the World.

. Welcoming new characters: Vladimir Putin, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Mike Pence, Kim-Jong Un, Kanye West (or Emmanuel Macron) could be among the next characters to be discovered.
