Apparently, this online game hit the internet sometime back in 2008, but this is the first I’ve heard of it. So… this is the first I’m posting about it.
ZenSoft, a three-person software company in Madison, Wis., created an online video game about President-elect Obama. I’m not sure if they’ve since changed it to President Obama (minus the “elect” part). Either way, as you can see from the screen shot of the spash page, “Super Obama World” bears more than a passing resemblance to the 1990s game favorite, Super Mario World.
In the first installment, Obama is in Alaska, where he scores points by collecting American flag lapel pins, and battling hockey moms, Russian soldiers, Gov. Sarah Palin, oil company executives, and pigs and pitbulls wearing lipstick.
Stores where Palin’s pricey wardrobe originated — Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s and Neiman Marcus — are in the background.
Noteworthy – There is a Bridge to Nowhere.
The gamemakers say future installments will put Obama in Illinois, Arizona, and Washington, D.C.
