Now that his job on Earth is done (and the planet is in ruins), Donald Jrump wants to make the galaxy great again by jumping into space on his favourite thing: walls! Jrump is a satirical game from Oddboy & Apparcanum that helps bring a smile into a potentially uncomfortable political climate.
What makes your game unique?
In a world gone crazy over the US Elections, we felt that the time was right for a game like Jrump. The mobile marketplace is saturated with political games that are lacklustre at best, so we thought “why not make a game based on everybody’s ‘favourite’ politician, and do it properly?” We created a game that combined a beautiful and unique art style with a simple and addictive mechanic. We wove layers of satire and humour into the game, and crafted marketing material based on the circus that was the US Election. The game features Mexicans, global warming scientists, jet-pack strapped politicians – and of course, walls! Go help Donald Jrump make the galaxy great again!
Why do you think you will win the Grand Prix this year?
Because everyone knows that Donald Jrump makes the best mobile games. He knows mobile games. This game is tremendous, it’s yuuuuge! But in all honesty, do we think we deserve to win the Grand Prix? Probably not. There are dozens of games that are more beautiful and engaging, but Jrump is somehow is bigger than the sum of its parts. It punches above its weight, and we are proud of that.
