Play the Election was a web based platform developed by ImpactGames in partnership with Rand McNally intended to educate secondary school students about the history and workings of the US Presidential election process. Based on the award winning Play the New platform, Play the Election was comprised of a total of eleven casual form games released in time with major events within the 2012 election campaigns that gave students a deeper understanding of the issues and allowing the to predict the outcome and give their opinions as to what would occur. Developed and deployed in a four and a half month period, Play the Election functioned on a variety of platforms including tablets. This presentation will provide a post mortem of the development process including the challenges of deploying a large scale application to a large audience in a short time.
