Tony Abbott gets his own video game

Android Gaming / Gaming / iOS Gaming / Mac / PC

The world of video gaming is an ever growing and expanding universe of the weird, strange and bizarre. There have been video games based on numerous ideas and subjects that would not generally come to mind to develop. The latest addition that fits into this weird and wonderful category comes to us in the form of an RPG utilizing former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott as the titular character.

Tony Abbott And The Quest For The Suppository Of Wisdom is a game officially described by the developers as “an episodic RPG that explores the world of Tony Abbott as he endeavors to make his political comeback.”  The title plays and looks like an early Final Fantasy title from the 16-bit era, with Tony Abbott being able to utilize basic attacks such as “argue,” along with special attacks like “nodding silently.”

The developer behind this title expresses their frustrations with the current state of Australia’s political government and encourages players to get out there and do something if they do not like the current state of the country, this can clearly be seen in a paragraph pulled straight from the titles official about page:

If you’re pissed off about the state of the world right now (and you should be), then do something about it! And I don’t mean online. Actually go outside and meet with people. Join a union, form a union, write angry letters to your MPs/senators/employers/newspapers, join a political party, make a political party, campaign, stand for office, make a stupid computer game, write political songs, go to a rally, put up inflammatory posters about lacklustre political representation, start writing for your university magazine or local newspaper, talk to your colleagues and friends, learn your rights, stand up for your rights, call out racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia and classism when you see it, and demand more from a political class who lament about the burden of “the welfare state” while accepting huge donations from destructive industries and using tax loopholes for their own advantage.

I personally enjoy a good parody and satire of anything, but being that I am Australian, this title is sure to have some form of an impact on me, whether that makes me take a closer look at my government or not is a different story. Here’s hoping for some brilliant Aussie puns and jokes to be included. The title will be released episodically every six to eight weeks starting from late November 2016, and the best part is the episodes will be absolutely free for PC, Mac, and mobile devices.

What do you think of this title? If you are not Australian, does this title still intrigue you? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
