10 Political game ideas

Eat Healthy

You go around grocery stores finding people with unhealthy or frozen foods in their shopping cart. You must then go and find the fresh or healthy equivalent and replace the item in the cart.

Guess the race

A picture will be shown to the player and a number of choices will be given. The player has to guess the correct race to get points. At the end the score will read “You are x% racist!”

Fish the sea

You must move your boat around the map fishing the various spots of tuna that have spawned and will continue to reproduce if not fished. There is a demand meter that the player must keep below a certain threshold by fishing the tuna. As the game progresses the player outfishes the reproduction rate of the fish eventually making the player lose.

Election ads sim

Turn based 1v1 strategy game where the player can choose to send their money that they gain every turn on various advertisements. These advertisements will either up the players public perception or lower the opponents public perception and the one with the best public standing at the end of the game will win. However, it’s really hard to increase your own public perception so the only way to win is by slandering your opponent.

Convert the young

In this time based game you run around as a priest converting people of all ages by standing near them. However the older they are the longer it takes for that npc to convert. Eventuality the player will only start converting the youngest npcs for the best score.

The pull out method

You press the spacebar repeatedly to fill up the bust meter. Once the meter is in the threshold you can press bust button to get score. The closer the player is to the end of the bar the better the score. However if the player hits the end of the bar he busts inside and the game is over.

Crybaby

Go to little league games during the summer and sit in the stands. Heckle the batters. Points for every time the kid looks at you and bonus points if you make a kid cry.

Textaholic

The player enters their number and will receive a text every couple of minutes with a simple question that most of the  population could answer such as what is 5×3 ?  The player gets points based on how fast they respond.

Uncomfortably long handshake

You and other players must go around shaking people’s hands at a convention. However, you must try shake their hand as long as possible. This game is best played with more people and whoever ends up with the longest handshake wins.

My Parent’s Money

You play a sims mod except your parents income is randomized at the beginning. This will give you a random amount of resources and you must try and build out of it. It’s obviously much easier if you start the game with a lot of money than not.

Political Art Game Ideas

Pokemon Penpal: Within Pokemon X/Y, nickname a bunch of pokemon to have a valid email address and wondertrade them out to the world. Be sure to watch out for an email from your new friends who randomly received your pokemon!

 

Data Tracker: A mundane rpg where you go around living an average life and doing average tasks, but the game tracks an absurd amount of data about the activities you do during play. A meter conveying NSA concern over your activities will have you second guessing every simple thing you do.

 

Gender Roles: Play as an androgynous person just going about their life. Everything in our society has some sort of gender expression to it, so everything you do will move your character more towards their action-associated gender. The player has no control of their physical gender expression, only their actions that determine what they convey to others.

 

Screw Public Transit: A game where you have to get to a bunch of cryptic landmarks around the city and you have to get there using the CTA. There are time limits imposed on the player between destinations, so if the CTA is slow that day, which it always is, then you’re screwed!

 

Express Lane: Go to a local grocery store and use the express lane checkout (usually has a maximum number of items). See how many items you can go over the limit without them sending you away. You must successfully check out all of your items for your score to count.

 

Self Portrait: Express yourself to being a fine artist to those on public transit and offer to draw portraits of people for free. Draw the shittiest picture possible. Don’t forget to sign and give it to them!

 

Risky Business: Basically the game risk but the names of the territories are large corporations that run the country. Use your army of lobbyists to conquer the globe!

 

We Can’t (Game)Stop: Go to a GameStop and buy a used game. Go back within the allotted return time and return that game and get a different one. Going to different GameStops usually helps, because returning to the same store often makes them suspicious. Bonus points for returning to the same store, and the longest chain of exchanged games wins!

 

Social Garden: Users can tend to gardens that are only viewable within a certain range of registered GPS coordinates. Realtime weather reports and time of day may effect the status of the garden.

 

Fake Server: In a restaurant, go around to tables and ask customers how they’re doing and if everything is okay. Offer to bring them things that you have no ability to bring them and say you’ll be right back.
