Chair's Next Game Features...Obama And Romney?

Partnership with Rock the Vote, others fueling goofy political fighting game.

In just a little while, the next game from Chair Entertainment will be available on the iOS App Store, in which you’ll finally get to live out your fantasy of, um, a boxing match between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

It’s called VOTE!!!! The Game.

Yes, it really has does have four exclamation points.

It’s a goofy partnership with the well-intentioned Rock the Vote folks, who work each election cycle to encourage voter turnout, so it’s hard to say too much about it, one way or the other. Chair has also partnered with the Video Game Voters Network and Project Vote Smart to connect players with relevant information for this year’s election.

And even though Infinity Blade is more popular than Shadow Complex multiple times over, I refuse to characterize today’s news as “from the developers of Infinity Blade,” if only to encourage Chair Entertainment to finally make Shadow Complex 2.

VOTE!!!! The Game is already live in some territories (click this link to check yours), and should be available for everyone within the next day or so.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Such a waste of developer. This is the type of shit I'd expect from the people who made Advent Rising or a shitty swipe based iphone "game". Fuck you, Epic, for keeping Chair a one-hit-wonder.

Ironic, given that Chair was founded by the lead designer of Advent Rising.

That was an intentional reference.

Yeah, realized that a second after posting. Whatevs. I agree.

Awesome. Wait. I forgot about the translators on my end. Besides, it's not like you would even be able to read what I'm writing.

Is P Diddy involved with this game?

Sadly even if Chair went through the trouble to make a Vote or Die game, I feel like the reference is just too old at this point.

Is Seth Green involved in this game?

This game looks completely stupid and it'll only be relevant from now until November in one country. What are they thinking?

I suppose it is a mobile game though...

And I once thought Chair showed so much promise with Shadow Complex. Ah well.

This game had better not be a US-only release. People from all countries deserve the opportunity to beat up Obama and Romney.

I can only hope that Ross Perot ends up being DLC.

Something tells me that Shadow Complex 2 is probably never happening.

Seriously, if they have them working on stupid crap like this...... sad face.

This is an unpredictable release, I'll give 'em that. Video games are weird.

Shadow Complex 2 would be real cool to play. Needs an Inverted Castle though. I wanna 200.6% dat ass.

When the revolution comes...well, Zynga will be the first in line. But Chair will be in there somewhere. It'll be like that board game Guillotine, except with game developers.
