What do you get when the great minds at Comedy Central and 2K Play collide? Well you get Comedy Central’s Indecision Game of course. Comedy Central, as we all know it, is the only all-comedy network available in millions of homes nationwide. And 2K Play is one of the three divisions within 2K which develops and publishes games for console systems, PC’s and handheld devices.
So what is this Indecision Game you ask. Well it is a new game/app for your handheld devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android; including the Kindle Fire. It was designed to add a “new wrinkle to the partisan divide.” You will be able to decide who really is smarter; the Democrats, the Republicans or maybe it is the Independents?
Here is how it works. The gamer selects their political affiliation and gear for their avatar. Costumes are inspired based on the party and include items such as “Comedy Central Donkelphant”, trucker hat “I See Russia’ specs” and the “O-Bomber” jacket. All items can be purchased in game via the in-game currency. What’s that? You say you are super patriotic? Well you can even acquire the Statue of Liberty costume that comes complete with the torch, crown and robe.
You then go head to head against the opponent in an obvious battle of the wits to answer humorous, voila – Comedy Central, questions that of course will be politically themed. This is a fast paced game and you are being timed so try to not only be witty but quick to respond because every correct response nails you voters for Election Day. Each voter earned can be strategically placed on the games map, a map of the United States.
The goal is to acquire the most voters and obtain the most states dominated. This results in victory for both the player and their party. But be warned players can obtain help from “Political Aides” and this includes stealing states or demanding a “Recount”. There will be no question as to who is the smartest with the “Real-time” results which are displayed in game via the “Election Headquarters”.
Here is what 2K and Comedy Central had to say
“2K Play is excited to partner with COMEDY CENTRAL to bring COMEDY CENTRAL’s Indecision Game to iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android,” said Steve Lux, Vice President of Business Development for 2K Play. “As the real world race heats up between Obama and Romney, it’s refreshing to play a game where smarts count and ballot peeks, smear campaigns, filibusters and investigative committees are all part of an honest day’s work.”
“COMEDY CENTRAL is thrilled to work with 2K Play for the launch of the Indecision mobile game. This innovative strategy and trivia game further expands the network’s Indecision brand on multiple platforms,” said Dan Yang, Senior Vice President & General Manager, 345 Games. “As we close in on the race to the White House, we’ll be excited to see who will win this battle of political intellect-Democrats, Republicans or Independents!”
Comedy Central’s Indecision Game is available on both the App Store for iphone, iPad, and iPod touch as well as the Amazon App Store for Android.
