New York (Oct. 29, 2004) – In the spirit of Halloween, Kuma\War has once again pushed the political envelope, allowing players to ’dress up’ in-game as either of the two presidential candidates to battle two of the worlds most evil and notorious villains, (with a twist), in their latest online update.
Available today, Kuma\War now gives subscribers the option to ‘wear’ the likeness of President George W. Bush, Senator John Kerry, Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein while fighting it out in multi-player mode. Modeled using advanced gaming tools, this is the first time President George W. Bush has been available to the gaming public. Also included are special Saddam and Osama Halloween likenesses.
“The most popular costumes in an election year are the candidates who are running for office,” said Sarah Anderson, VP Marketing, Kuma Reality Games. “In fact, the most popular costume is usually a predictor of who wins the election. Since our audience is keenly interested in politics and news, we wanted to take this to the next level – all in good fun for Halloween - - and allow them to ’dress’ in-game as George W. Bush or John Kerry as they battle it out.”
Players can make their own political statements by wearing these in-game ‘costumes’ in multiplayer mode, available for all 25 Kuma\War missions.
