Just in time for the upcoming midterm elections, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has come out with a game app designed to encourage people to vote. The aptly named “This is not a game: The game” attempts to educate people about voting by drawing them in with gamification.
Samantha Bee says that “only 52% of her audience is actually registered to vote”. Those statistics are terrifying when you consider that the midterm elections are coming up fast.

We tried the game ourselves and were pleasantly surprised by the great sense of humor it employs. It even managed to teach a few things about our government. And along the way, there are prizes to entice you. For instance, the game has the option to enable voting reminders. If you do so, you get entered in for a chance to win a trip to NYC to see a taping of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.
This is one game that we truly hope goes viral.
This is Not a Game: The Game is available now for iOS and Android.
