Hi, all. Glad to meet you.
My name is Mark Houck and my team and I are in the midst of creating an election themed educational game for release in the next couple months.
Our goal is to create a really funny game that will keep people interested and playing because of the humor while we secretly educate them about important issues they will be voting on. With luck, we will be able to create an unstoppable army of voters who actually know what they're voting on when they head to the polls in November. Democracy at it's finest. Gaming at it's most powerful.
The game itself is simple, has absolutely no political slant and is designed only to educate and entertain. We all have our own views but like good journalists, we are keeping them out of the game. It's the only way the game can have a real effect on people.
If anyone wants to pitch in, we could use extra hands. The game is self funded (me) and not really designed to make money, just to make an impact.
Hope you find it interesting and best of luck to you all.
