Ron Paul might not wind up in the Oval Office, but if one man has his way, he might land in an equally visible spot: on computer and smart phone screens, as a video game star.
Daniel Williams, the game’s creator and the founder of a web site that sells Ron Paul merchandise, created a Kickstarter campaign last week to fund the game. He set a relatively modest goal of raising $5,000 over two weeks to fully develop the game. As of today, he had already raised more than $9,000.
The game, titled “Ron Paul: The Road to REVOLution”, will play like Super Mario Bros., as the player moves through 13 levels (one for each branch of the Fed) attacking enemies and final bosses and collecting gold along the way.
The game will be playable through internet browsers, as well as on iPhones and Android phones. Williams estimates it will take two months to complete, with a beta-testing version ready in mid-June.
