Hyderabad, Nov.5 : Though the United States of America has now voted in favour of African-American Barack Obama for the top post, he may continue to struggle to win in a 'fist-fight' with his chief Republican opponent John Mc Cain in the near future.
Motivated by the huge enthusiasm among youngsters here to keep track of the two candidates' months-long contest to the White House, a technology-based Indian company has developed an online game where both the contestants for the U.S Presidential post could be made to settle scores by winning by a fist-fight.
To provide entertainment to computer buffs, a company here has developed an online game 'The Big Fight' in which the individuals can enjoy Barack Obama and John McCain fighting it out in the ring with fists.
The objective behind developing such a game is stated to be developing youngsters' interest in international news events like the recently held US poll.
The techniques used in the online fight will involve boxing, kickboxing, karate and wrestling.
"People from all over the world have been eager to know the winner of the United States Presidential elections. We thought of having a different scenario than having just a verbal fight between them. In this fighting concept, there is a lot of kickboxing, punching, reverse kick that provide big enjoyment apart from giving the joy of being a part of election fever," said L. Maruti Shankar, Managing Director of the 7Seas Technologies Limited.
Targeted at adolescents and above, the online game will be available on the company's portals - www.onlinerealgames.com and www.neodelight.com.
It will also be available through over 50 aggregator portals in a week to 10 days from now.
Online gamers opine that this game is quite unique as it helps everyone relate this fight to the real American election that concluded today.
"I want to defeat McCain in this game because I like Obama. United States had different Presidents but not the one like Obama. His ways of working are different and does good work and that's why I like him," Abhi Bhattacharya, an online player of games.
The Big Fight, the first such game to be developed in India, took three months to develop at a cost of 3.5 million rupees. By Narendra
