The Konami code does nothing in the new game from Republicans

, | News

The National Republican Senatorial Committee wants the GOP to win the mid-term elections, and apparently the best way to get the grassroots support they need is with a video game. Mission Majority is a simple platformer that stars a pixelated elephant named “Giopi”. (Har, har! Get it? Gee-oh-pee!) It’s a free web game that’s obviously been made to collect social media participants’ information as well as educate the masses.

Hi, my name is Giopi! I’m one of the GOP’s best volunteers for the 2014 midterms, and I’m here to show you how we can win back the Senate! There is going to be a lot of red tape and regulations in our way, but we need to overcome them in order to succeed. At the end of each level, there is a link that will bring you to a site where you can support Republicans in real life. Ready to get started? Great, have fun!

The Mario-esque enemies in the game include “Taxers” sent by President Obama to catch Giopi. As of this posting, there is no video game from the Democrats’ side of the aisle for the upcoming elections.
