John McCain presents "Pork Invaders!"

Posted at 11:25 AM on June 26, 2008 by Sanden Totten (1 Comments)

A few days ago, you might have thought to yourself: "The day John McCain is the first to harness a hip new Internet trend and put it to use for his campaign is the day pigs fly." Well . . . introducing John McCain's "Pork Invaders.

Considering that it was only a few days ago that a McCain staffer let us know that the candidate was indeed "aware of the Internet," launching a serious game is a pretty slick step forward into the realm of digital campaigning. Couple that with the fact that Obama has been known to bash video games in his speeches, and you might think McCain is making some inroads into the much coveted young and tech savvy voting block.

But then again, "serious" might be the wrong word to describe a game that involves firing vetoes at a herd of floating hogs. Go ahead and play it. Let us know what you think.
