Liz Truss is ‘immortalised’ in a video game where she grabs pound coins from the public
Prime Minister Liz Truss has a new accolade, joining the likes of Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog as a star of a fast-paced platform game: In Liz We Trust?
The 8-bit romp is sure to be a hit with anyone fed up with rising energy bills, mortgage spikes, bankers’ bonuses, hedge fund profiteers and a falling pound.
In the game, you get a chance to control the Prime Minister (and yes, she is for turning) on her mission to grab as many pound coins from British homes as possible and deliver them to the City of London.
The only thing getting in Liz’s way are Leader of the Opposition, Sir Keir Starmer; Conservative Party plotter, Michael Gove, regional BBC journalists and Governor of the Bank of England, Andrew Bailey. And unlike her predecessor, Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister in this game only has three lives before it is GAME OVER.
The satirical spoof In Liz We Trust? was conceived and developed in
just five days by Construct in collaboration with creative agency, Cow
and games developer Bart Alluyn of Lessis Games.
Commenting on the release of the game, Tom Gullen, co-founder at Construct said: “We provide a platform for users to make video games for educational, recreational, and business purposes. It’s quick, cheap, and easy to do and anyone can create a game in a matter of hours without any knowledge of coding. In Liz We Trust? was conceived and developed in three working days at a cost of just £750, which is even less these days than it was before the mini-budget’.“
”In Liz We Trust? is free to play here.
