The 2016 election has been a strange one, to say the least. There has been fiery discussion over walls, socialism, health concerns, birth certificates and even more talk about building walls. To say that the whole circus is ripe for parody is putting it lightly; this whole year seems to lend itself towards parody and that’s precisely what a New Zealand-based game developer, Oddboy & AppArcanum has done, reports Mashable.
The game, which was released on Friday for both iOS and Android, is called Jrump and has its sights set high on making the galaxy great again. Set in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic 2017, a caricature of a victorious Donald Trump — called Donald Jrump — needs to build walls to jump on to make his way to space where he can then work on applying his policies that apparently led to the world turning into a dumpster fire.
As far as political satire goes, it might be a bit on-the-nose, even featuring caricatures of Obama, Hillary, and Bernie on jetpacks looking to stop Mr. Jrump. And the trailer is appropriately set on a fictional cable news channel called Faux News. Sure, that might be a bit heavy-handed, but it seems to be done all in the name of good fun. It is a game, after all.
