Seattle, Washington – February 14th, 2019 – It’s Valentine’s Day and you know what that means: Love is in the air, birds are chirping, and the Supreme Court is deciding on cases that affect the entire nation.
When our civil liberties are at stake, it’s up to nine Supreme Court Justices to provide essential checks and balances that are crucial to our democracy.
In “Supreme Courtship” (which launched its Kickstarter campaign just recently), you are the newly appointed 9th Justice on the Court, tasked with making rulings so important that they will change the course of history forever. And it’s your first day. Gulp!
But fear not, as you’ll learn the ropes from the young, stylish alter egos of such judicial superstars as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and John Roberts.
But being a Justice isn’t all work and no play – spending time with the Justices outside of the Court just might earn you some influential new friends!
From Just Us Games comes Supreme Courtship, the world’s first judicial friendship simulator. Inspired by the warm-hearted humor of Phoenix Wright, Supreme Courtship aims to not only provide an appealing, comical adventure, but also to teach players about the people and procedures of the Supreme Court.
Every Justice is based on their real-life counterpart, with Just Us Games having gone to a ridiculous amount of work to accurately represent each Justice based on their background, political ideologies, and what they looked like when they were younger.
Supreme Courtship is more than mere satire: it’s a crash course on how one of the most overlooked branches of the US government actually operates!
So how can you help Supreme Courtship, an educational comedy game with a goal for good, make it to players like you? Easy! Check out its Kickstarter campaign, running from February 14th until March 16th.
Just Us Games aims to raise at least $32,000 – and hopefully hit a few nifty stretch goals along the way. Thankfully, there’s a free demo available to all, so you can get a taste of what comical courtroom capers lie in store for you when Supreme Courtship launches next year.
