Chair Entertainment, the division of Epic Games responsible for the first two games in the Infinity Blade series, has released a new game called Vote!!!. The game pits U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney against each other with the same gesture-based fighting mechanics from Infinity Blade.

Though the game only launched today, it has already drawn a lot of media attention including from Bloomberg:

The candidates wield lightsabers and baton-like microphones, facing off in the Oval Office, the White House lawn and the debate stage in "Vote," from Epic Games Inc.’s Chair Entertainment. The company plans to offer the game for free starting tomorrow on Apple Inc.’s App Store. It lets users of iPods, iPhones and iPads pick either the president or his Republican challenger, Technical Director Geremy Mustard said.

Chair Entertainment, maker of the popular "Infinity Blade" sword-fighting game, goes a step beyond political satire by working with Washington-based Rock the Vote for the first in-game attempt to register thousands of young people to cast a ballot this November.

"Gamers are a pretty hard audience to reach, and the game is a really fun way to keep people engaged in the political process these next critical two months," Mustard said in an interview.

Our sister site TouchArcade recorded this video of their first play through.


VOTE!!! is available free for iPhone and iPad on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Does it have a function where these two criminals kill each other so that a real leader can take the White House and lead the American people out of debt slavery?
