New Mobile App: Help Romney’s Dog Escape!

Were you shocked by the now-infamous story of how Mitt Romney drove for 12 hours with his dog Seamus crated atop his car roof, back in 1983? Well, while it’s not possible to travel back in time to help the stressed-out pooch, you’ll soon be able to help Seamus escape in game form.

On August 26 (which is both National Dog Day and the day before the Republican National Convention), the digital game publisher Censault LLC will release a mobile game app in which the user acts as Romney’s dog Seamus. You’ll help him escape the crate, dodge airborne debris, and find treats, while Romney continues blithely driving the car beneath him. You will even be able to enlist the help of other famous political pets. (You can see a preview of the gameplay in the video above.)

As the game developers describe it, “The Crate Escape: Seamus Unleashed, is one of the first entries into a powerful new genre of mobile games-as-social commentary – games designed to use humor, satire and fun gameplay to engage players and affect social change.”

The creators of the game have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help with finishing and polishing the game, as well as releasing it on a broader variety of mobile platforms.

Romney and Ryan are the wrong choice for women, children and the middle class. Vote all republicans out of office in every state at every opportunity.

Mitt's hands are tied together like the winter mittens with a string...so he won't get lost from his money:

"He paid 13.9 percent in taxes on an income of $21.7 million in 2010, a rate "lower than that of a person earning $50,000," The Huffington Post reported."

It is App-solutely essential that the public is able to escape from him as quickly as possible, before he crosses the border to my country! We already got stuck with Harper.


Seamus would have Mitt Romney wear the Eternal Dog Cone Collar Of Shame.

I've got to agree with Chris C. about the young child vs. adult thing but I really won't be surprised if republicans make a game now that has The President chasing a dog around with a knife & fork and a napkin tied around his neck.

This would, in sensible times, AUTOMATICALLY dis-qualify a person from running for President of the United States and World Leader! [Not to mention his whole string of gaffes in London at the Olympics -- again, THAT should immediately dis-qualify ANYone right there! A complete and total Foreign Policy FIASCO!]
Unfortunately, the Rethuglicans have NOBODY ELSE. Who even wants to be the Vice-presidential candidate, or is qualified to be? NObody!

I would expect, with all this negative publicity, to actually see Willard have a NERVOUS BREAKDOWN and go all to pieces at some point!
THAT would surely be the Revenge of Seamus!
