Dallas Game Publisher Makes Statement With Political Game
A Dallas-based video game developer, Censault, is making a political statement with a new game it has just released for the iPhone and iPad. Censault said that its new game. Crate Escape: Seamus Unleashed, features President Obama's dog, Bo, and Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's dog, Seamus. Censault said the game is a parody of the now infamous dog-on-car-roof incident with Romney and his family dog--where Romney strapped his dog Seamus to the top of a station wagon for a 12-hour drive to Canada. The mobile-app-as-political-satire also includes a tie into New Wave band DEVO, which has contributed an alternate sound track for the game called "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro!".
