“No need for name calling, leading to fist-to-cuffs, when you have this virtual game!”
Professional Animator Unveils Cell Phone Game App to Address the Urge to Fight Over Candidates Trump and Clinton in this year’s presidential race
With both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions this year being so historic and sometimes hysterical, most voters want to take their angst and aggression out on someone or something. NOW is their chance to release their latent and blatant anger on Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton with a new phone app video game called – PRESIDENT STREET FIGHT.”
Here is a video link which allows you to take a first look at the new game:
This game was created at the beginning of the Presidential Primary Season, by professional animator and graphic design artist Tim McGee of Holyoke, MA. McGee is the founder and owner of McGee Media, of Holyoke, Massachusetts. Mr. McGee anticipated that the knock-down-drag out contest – for becoming the next Leader of the Free World – would come down to the Republican Nominee, Donald Trump, and Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton.
This year’s White House race has proven to have plenty of reports of vicious name calling, negative campaigning, violence, and something seems to come out every day in the news media about something that each candidate has done wrong – you know, skeletons in their closet which no doubt make their supporters cringe and the other candidate’s supporters (and the profit-seeking media) celebrate.
Thankfully, McGee’s new cell phone app will help those who have had enough and those who can’t get enough of “gaming” – of which reportedly 52% are women – to help their candidate settle the score in a karate-style street fight.
McGee has put out this game within the context of his “Stop the Violence Campaign.” As McGee puts it, “There has been so much controversy and violence, surrounding this political season, I felt it was important to help people exhibit some anger management by playing my game.” This app will be a great way to pass the time – particularly during the hot button presidential debates, that are sure to get people in an emotional tizzy to the point where they likely will need an emotional outlet. Instead of showing their anger toward those on the other side of the political fence, they can use their thumbs on a virtual screen to do the trick.”
More than that, the game is fun and can be played on your own or in a room with friends during a break at work, waiting in line for that morning coffee, or after hours hanging out before the game or your favorite show. Whatever you do, though, please play responsibly; we don’t want you to go falling off a cliff, or inadvertently walking into some strangers house, or into traffic – like some players have done playing another game … that shall remain unmentioned.
In addition to being able to fight as Clinton or Trump, McGee has included a cast of characters, such as President Obama, as well as former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Even the Vice Presidential Picks will be added into the gaming shortly.
Gamers and anyone else who wants PRESIDENT STREET FIGHT may have it – for free – by buying a Trump or Clinton T-shirt, with Original Art work from the project (with different types of prints, the T-shirts ranges in cost from $20 to $30) or you can choose a DVD starring Lucy Liu, called Nomads, a powerful movie on the subject of the dehumanizing experience of immigration, which Candidate Trump has certainly made a central issue in this year’s campaign. This means you get to see this movie months before its release this winter. Check it all out on Indiegogo, make your purchase, and set aside some time to have fun with this cool game.
Here’s a little more about the game app’s creator, Tim McGee
Since 1999, McGee has been producing animation movies and characters. On a vacation trip to Disney World, in Florida, McGee met a group of animators, working at the MGM Studio theme park (now known as Hollywood Studios). Here, they informed him about how one may get into the industry and where to go to school for appropriate training. The gentlemen gave him a list of colleges and an information packet on what the company looks for in an art portfolio.
While studying Graphic Arts at Springfield Technology Community College, Mr. McGee convinced his professor to allow him to do an independence study on animation. His professor agreed and suggested a number of figure drawing classes he would need to take, as well. After graduating from Springfield Technology Community College, McGee continued, in earnest, to draw and write scripts, and submitted applications with some of his work to the colleges, provided on the list previously given him by the kind Disney animators. McGee was accepted to a number of the colleges on the list including KCAI (Kansas City Art Intuition), the same college at which Mr. Walt Disney attended. McGee chose to attend this college as well. After finishing up the foundation program, McGee transferred to Atlanta, Georgia in order to finish his studies while launching a number media properties that he created at KCAI. In Atlanta, Mcgee attended AIA (the Art Institute of Atlanta)
While in Atlanta, McGee worked with a number of people from the industry, from a retired VP Executive at Turner programming, other animators in the industry, major league baseball players, such as Mark Wohlers, and world class entertainers such as Sir Elton John, TLC, Jagged Edge, Blaque, and Lucy Liu.
McGee began to branch out into the web-based media and video games, apps and programming and continues to work in this area. McGee, while creating a beta demo game to star Lucy Liu, he began to discover just how many people were upset with congress and the poor job they were doing. So, he turned his attention to this subject matter and developed a number of game demos, with PRESIDENT STREET FIGHT being one of them.
McGee owns the rights to the movie Nomads starring Lucy Liu. Mr. McGee states that he is working with Ms. Liu in order to promote this movie as one of the perqs in the indiegogo (crowd funding) promotion. This movie is about the dehumanizing experience of immigration. McGee will launch the movie in the Fall (on ITunes and Amazon).
