Super Bernie World is a new free and retro political platformer from a team of different indie developers and it's out now with a Linux version.
Is this real? Yes, very much so. The Lead Developer and Producer is Emma Maassen from Kitsune Games (Lore Finder, MidBoss) and it's also made with the cross-platform FNA tech, with Ethan Lee doing the porting work as confirmed to us on Twitter.
Run and jump your way across 11 states and the District of Columbia as Bernie and free the USA from the clutches of four Republicans in their castle lairs. Find power ups like Vermont cheddar cheese, red roses, and the power of "Not Me. Us" to overcome obstacles such as walking red hats, Mitch troopas, and tiki torch throwers.
A political retro game rendered in classic NES style and colors, accompanied by nostalgic chip tunes.
For an old dude, Bernie sure has a lot of agility in this. Jokes aside, it's a very retro and surprisingly polished Mario-styled platformer with a nice challenge to it that's supposed to encourage people to get out and vote (and they would obviously prefer you vote for this Bernie fellow). There's even a few real statements included from politicians.
Find it free on itch.io (you can play in the browser too) and also Steam.
If there will be a vote that is... I fully predict sars-cov-2 to wreck havoc on the US pretty soon. Apparently president Trump was two handshakes away from an infected person at his last rally. Clearly there are thousands of infected flying under the radar in the US, and government and healthcare is poorly prepared and not taking it seriously. I fully expect it to be as bad as in Italy, Iran, SK or China.
Game looks noice BTW.

That's exactly why people need to get off their couches and vote. ^_^
