Infinity Blade Creators Pit Obama Against Romney In ‘Vote: The Game’

In one of the most bizarre uses of the Unreal Engine yet, Epic Games is releasing an app where you can beat up both of the United States’ leading presidential candidates. Odd-looking iOS title Vote: The Game is built with the same engine that runs Infinity Blade, but the cartoonish style looks dramatically more ridiculous.

As shown in the trailer below, the gameplay is ripped wholesale from Infinity Blade, with added features that show which candidate is “leading” the race.

Aside from the combat, the game also features downloadable items to boost stats, plus unlockable outfits, so you can beat up the game’s Mitt Romney caricature with a rolled-up Declaration of Independence.

Right now, Vote: The Game isn’t available to download from the App Store just yet, but will be later today.

(Disappointingly, there’s no option for Ron Paul.)

Despite the potential offensive parody, this game can serve an actual purpose, as it prompts vote registration through in-game links. Thankfully, that’s as far as it goes—just imagine if this was how you could actually vote.
