RT Reports On 'Ron Paul: The Road To Revolution' Video GameSubmitted by shifty1032231 on Fri, 04/13/2012 - 14:42
Houston, Texas’ Daniel Williams is just as old as Super Mario Bros., but it’s only now that the programmer is giving the game a much needed make-over. Forget Nintendo’s official sequels, Williams, 27, is about to bring a new meaning to "GOP."
Williams hopes his latest brainchild, “Ron Paul: the Road to REVOLution,” will have both dweebs and Democrats alike praising the GOP. In this case, though, that means “grand old play.”
“Ron Paul: the Road to REVOLution” borrows from iconic video games including Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog and Castlevania, but combines the classic side-scrolling gameplay that made those titles smash hits with America’s favorite 76-year-old political candidate. Instead of a perturbed plumper or a speedy blue anamorphic rodent performing as protagonist, Williams relies on Republican Party presidential hopeful and Texas Congressman Ron Paul to grab the attention of gamers.
“I love video games, and I’m a programmer by trade,” Williams tells Raw Story. “Programming video games is kind of a hobby of mine. I’m the lead programmer on a site called RonPaulSwag.com, where we sell t-shirts and promote liberty to younger crowds. A video game was kind of the next step for me.”
