Ron Paul video game being made because of course it is

John Moe Apr 20, 2012

Supporters of Ron Paul have always been plenty dedicated and now that they’re not busy, you know, winning, they have plenty of time on their hands to make video games, apparently. “Ron Paul: Road to REVOlution” is premiering in the summer on the web and could move to Xbox Live soon after, just in time to be grumpy no matter who wins the presidency in November. It’s a sort of role playing game, says USA Today:

The player guides Paul across all 50 states, as he collects delegates and gold (not cash, but real gold, which the game refers to as sound money). Boss battles will occur along the way, 13 in total, each representing a branch of the Federal Reserve.

Because if there’s one thing gamers love, it’s battling the Federal Reserve!
