Play Where's the Naughty Governor?

July 9, 2009 -

New from Addicting Games is the tongue-in-cheek puzzler Where's the Naughty Governor?

The super-easy Where's Waldo? clone challenges player to find visual clues related to the cases of philandering guvs and ex-guvs like South Carolina's Mark Sanford, New York's Eliot Spitzer and New Jersey's Jim McGreevey. Philandering would-be president John Edwards is tossed in for good measure. Sarah Palin  made the cut too, but for quitting her post rather than for extra-curricular marital activities.

As an added bonus (and this lackluster game needs all the help it can get), the Los Angeles Times has an interesting article on the creative process behind Where's the Naughty Governor?:

The quintet [of game designers] quickly work their way through 15 politicians with slippery zippers before settling on five. Sen. Ensign of Nevada is labeled "kinda boring" and tossed out because he promptly admitted his infidelity; mayors Villaraigosa [of Los Angeles] and Newsom [of San Francisco] don't have big enough national profiles; former Sen. Larry E. Craig of Idaho is set aside because his arrest for allegedly soliciting sex in an airport bathroom by tapping his foot could... deserve its own game.

Those making the cut: Sanford, Spitzer, McGreevey and Edwards [Palin was apparently added later]. Dave Williams, senior VP of Nickelodeon's games group, even reaches into the past for one more addition.

"Could we end on Bill Clinton? He's the big boss!" [a designer] says with a laugh, using the video-game term for a final and most difficult opponent.

Re: Play Where's the Naughty Governor?

You say that only because you're jealous because you can't be in there yourself.

Re: Play Where's the Naughty Governor?

Of course I'm jealous.....who wouldn't want a slutty librarian MILF?

I'm just afraid of any bizarre punishments Christians give out when you have pre-martial sex with someone

Re: Play Where's the Naughty Governor?

I think having to keep the kid is punishment enough, lol

You mean like being stoned to death?  Oh, wait, that's Muslims.

Re: Play Where's the Naughty Governor?

Christians loved stoning. Or burnings.

Disobedient son? Stone him!

Working on the Sabbath? Stone him!

Daughter of a priest is a slut? Burn her!

Hell, if you have sex with a woman on her period, you both are to be banished (Leviticus 20:18).

Re: Play Where's the Naughty Governor?

To modify my above post, Keyword being loved, as in, they don't do that anymore.

Re: Play Where's the Naughty Governor?

And there in lies the problem of trying to make wit out of insulting other religions when Christians / Catholics / Jews did the same for millenia, or I guess everyone forgot that part of history.

Keyword being history.  Nobody says anything about stonings still happening in the Middle East by Muslim nations because they're worried about their feelings, but we can pick on Jews and Christians all we want for stuff that hasn't been done in hundreds of years.

benohawkI hope the new ghostbusters is good regardless, but I also expect it to have to surpass the orignal for people to acknowledge that.08/03/2015 - 1:37am
benohawkMecha, those changes are also some of the bigger complaints I've heard about the Abrams Star Trek movie.08/03/2015 - 1:35am
MechaTama31https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vU_D96AdK0M <-- Letterman interview with Bill Murray, he seems to have a similar opinion to mine about the pink-slime movie.08/02/2015 - 11:27pm
MechaTama31I don't think it's as big a deal as you think, matts. After all, JJ Abrams' Star Trek removed the original cast (mostly) and changed the formula significantly. If the movie is enjoyable, people will enjoy it.08/02/2015 - 11:23pm

Matthew Wilsonit wont let me update it, so the title is Tifa's Breasts Too Big for the FF7 Remake?08/02/2015 - 6:14pm
Andrew EisenRemember, when linking videos, please tell us what it is (title usually words) in addition to who it's from.08/02/2015 - 6:05pm
Matthew Wilsonhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxVv7pbqXvY a interesting video video by Gaijin Goombah08/02/2015 - 4:54pm
MattsworknameInfo: Well thats something at least08/02/2015 - 3:04pm
Infophile@Matt: Apparently Dan Aykroyd actually is involved. We don't know how yet, though, but he's apparently going to be in the movie in some way.08/02/2015 - 4:17am
MattsworknameI still hold that not having the origonal cast invovled in any way hurts this movie, and unless the 4 actresses in the lead roles can some how measure up to the comic timing of the origonal cast, i just don't see it being a success08/02/2015 - 12:46am
MattsworknameMecha: regardless of what you think of it, GB 2 was a finanical success and for it time did well with audiances ,even if it wasnt as popular as the first08/02/2015 - 12:45am
MechaTama31I think they're better off trying to do something different, than trying to be exactly the same and having every little difference held up as a shortcoming. Uncanny valley.08/01/2015 - 11:57pm
MechaTama31Having the original cast didn't do much for... that pink-slimed atrocity which we must never speak of.08/01/2015 - 11:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew: If the new ghostbusters bombs, I cant help but feel it'll be cause it removed the origonal cast and changed the formula to much08/01/2015 - 8:31pm
Andrew EisenNot the best look but that appears to be a PKE meter hanging from McCarthy's belt.08/01/2015 - 7:34pm
Matthew Wilsonwhy, let me guess it runes like crap?08/01/2015 - 7:29pm
Andrew EisenInteresting. These throwers are different than the ones we saw in the earlier Ghostbusters prop pics. https://twitter.com/feigfans/status/62754147689817702508/01/2015 - 7:28pm
