"The Presidential Prizefight" is a client project we recently finished putting together over here. I had a hand in creating the background and ring, the line art for the t-shirts, and creating new art for a presidential coffee cup featuring only the most worthy contenders.

From the Portland blog, explaining the nature of this boxing game :

The interesting thing about this game is that it’s not just one person vs. the computer, it is everyone playing for Obama vs. everyone playing for McCain! The results have real-time impact on the game’s electoral map and game play. There are also fun facts throughout in order to increase your knowledge of the electoral college - how it works and why the battleground states are so important.

In case Zach didn’t already mention this, I think this is one of the first times that everyone at Portland had a hand in one project. Justin and Zach did all of the face and body animation. Cory did the background and the “Cheering Presidents Mug.” He also did the line art for the t-shirt, mugs, and stickers and Matt Mantooth created all of the products. Mantooth and Kammer worked on the design of the landing page, and of course Mark Johnson developed the game play. You would have to create an algorithm in order to figure out how many algorithms Johnson created for this game.

We just hope you have as much fun playing it as we did making it!

Play the game here.

Or, if you're just like that, here's the trailer.
