    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:
    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]

    So many cartoons made fun of Bush's ears for 8 years. Obama beats him on those!

    Just had a go at it.. it's really well put together. Built on the unreal engine and plays like a charm.

    I don't really like the slow motion look of it, but otherwise, it looks great, excellent idea.

    I wonder how long before Apple pulls the app and enables the KILL SWITCH. It does violate one of the app store guidelines, which is making fun of political figures.

    I think I have enough posts to post a trollish message, though I won't.

    Looks fun!

    It will be nice if they show which candidate is winning once everybody starts playing, they can be like CNN show a map Of the 50 states * points to Atlanta where it should be Obama undefeated lol

    There's a % on the menu screen, was 52% Obama, 48% Romney. Later it changed to 53/47.

    Is that the people choosing to play each character being updated live?

    My first thought, too ... No, mid of August ... Not a classical joke season

    ----------

    But it's balanced with both side part of it ... You might be right though

    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?

    And no one seems to notice that the president is wielding the weapons in his right hand?

    Well spotted! You're up there with iJohnhenry as a contender for the Columbo award :D

    (once saw him deduce a car model and year off the top of his head from where a guy lived & that it had a non-magnetic side panel)

    Well, at least among iPad users, Obama will win in a landslide. And considering that all of our sales reps and medical scientific liaisons in the field use iPads and IT hasn't been able to stop them from getting stuff like this from the Appstore, I'd say that includes a good chunk of older adults as well.

    Since when did ATL become a state? That's some fuzzy geography.

    No, not iPad users, that's way too broad a universe. Among iOS users that chose to download the game yes. All iPad users, no, you can't draw that conclusion. Sorry.

    Sure, but I think it pokes fun at both sides evenly, doesn't it? No affiliation or bias? Should be safe.

    If the devs really wanted to 'reach' the gaming sector, those numbers would be updated to reflect current polls, not some fictional gaming metrics.

    . . . Why would owning an iPad make one more likely to vote for Obama? Or do you mean his character requires complicated multi-touch gestures to truly dominate, thereby giving the advantage to those with bigger screens? Or are you really stating that people with iPads obviously have extra cash laying around, who therefore are seemingly unaffected by the current financial crisis in this country, and who therefore aren't going to vote for anyone else to kick Obama out of the pilot's seat and pull the stick back as hard as they can to keep this country from plowing into the mountain?
