How’s that postal plebiscite on marriage equality? A waste of $122 million or, no…that’s about it. If you need some prep before you vote yes to make marriage equal in Australia, try out Going Postal a retro, 8-bit online game.
The web based game, which can be found at goingpostal.com.au, inserts hurdles between you and your ‘Yes’ vote being posted. All you have to do is jump these hurdles to make it to the post box. Just as in real life, hurdles include a conservative, budgie-smuggler wearing, deposed ex-Prime Minister, our current, almost as unpopular Prime Minister, a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and plain old rocks.
The game was created by Agency, a creative studio for social change, to keep the marriage equality vote at the forefront of peoples minds in the three weeks we have left until Australians receive their postal ballots.
The game isn’t hard to complete – just like voting Yes to give people the right to love and marry whomever they want – but it’s fun.
The opportunity to check your address for the vote with the ABS closed at midnight last night, so we’re hoping you checked your details before hand.
While normally we stick to tech subjects, this is one subject the Ausdroid team supports wholeheartedly. Vote yes to the marriage equality survey and tell those politicians to get on with the job.
