Cartridge 1: MacIver
The story... The game author works for a think tank in Madison, called MacIver, and during the major protests this year they were taking pictures and documenting it. There were some real screwballs that didn't like them hanging around. There were zombie protesters that interrupted a ceremony for the special olympics, a guy on a segway who staged disruptions during committee meetings, and finally there was this guy in a pink dress who chased their intern around the Capitol for taking pictures. That's where the idea for this game came from.
Cartridge 2: Balloon Protest
During the Madison protests this year, protesters started bringing heart shaped balloons into the Capitol and releasing them in the rotunda. Their goal was to fill up the dome with these balloons. One day a staffer, who was going crazy from the months of protest chanting and singing in the building, snapped. He grabbed a letter opener and tried to pop these balloons. So in the game, you try to navigate heart shaped balloons up into the Capitol dome, while dodging the enraged staffer.
