While animation has emerged as the most popular medium for political satire, one company is bringing it to the interactive realm. Game studio InnerMation has created a twisted casual online racing game franchise titled Roadkill to the White House, which it will present during The Art Institute of California’s Animation 2005 Lecture series, taking place before the IDGA LA Chapter meeting on Thursday, March 3, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
InnerMation, a recently christened Virtools Certified Game Developer, is utilizing the Roadkill games to showcase new talent, as well as Virtools’ development tool set. A member of Virtools’ exclusive stable of 10 developers, InnerMation produces both 3D online and CD-Rom games using the software package.
Far from being a roadmap to peace in American politics, the first mini-mission game, Roadkill to the White House: Mision Extreme Move-On Over, gives the green light to anyone who has ever felt the need for speed and the urge to purge the political landscape of hucksters, pundits, and an assortment of the usual suspects.
InnerMation’s creative team is headed by co-founder and president Phil Snyder, is a veteran standup comic-impressionist. "Our goal is to lay tread-marks on every political animal in the world by the year 2010," he quips. "We expect it to become a badge of honor that says, “I have arrived.”
This event is open to the public and will be held in the Big Room of the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, located at 2900 31st Street in Santa Monica. For more information, contact Bijan Tehrani, Industry Liaison of the school at (818) 613-4227 or [email protected]
