Political Activist Platformer Super Bernie World Campaigns on Steam Today
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – 10 Mar. 2020 – Super Bernie World, an electoral activism platformer rendered in classic NES style with nostalgic chiptunes from Gamedevs for Bernie and publisher Kitsune Games, is now doing its part for the American people for free on Steam for Windows and in your browser on Itch.io.
Take on MAGAmbas, Mitch Troopas, ICE Bullets and Tiki Torchers with the power of positive change. Campaign through 12 states and go up against two notable senators, a congressman and the president of the United States himself. With power-ups like Vermont cheddar cheese to embiggen him, red roses for tossing and the symbolic “Not Me, Us” raised fist firing him up with invincibility, Bernie will help achieve the dreams of millions of 8-bit Americans.
Learn more about Sanders’ policy platform in cutscenes at the start of each world. Look up how to support his campaign with time or money right from Super Bernie World’s main menu. Help Bernie inside the game and out in the real world to collect enough votes across the United States and win the presidency in November.
“We wanted to do our part and educate people about what a Bernie Sanders presidency could do for our nation, and as game developers, this seemed the natural way for us to do it,” said Emma Maassen, President of Kitsune Games, “We feel his policies are the best way forward for not just us, but our communities including LGBTQ+ and other marginalized groups. Accessible health care, living wages, less student debt and fighting climate change are critical to increased quality of life for us all.”
