Wario Starts Silent But Deadly Crowdfarter Campaign

by on May 23, 2013


Proving that they will not rest as they relentlessly pursue the lowest common denominator of the gaming culture, Nintendo has released a fake marketing campaign for their upcoming Wii U “Game & Wario” video game where visitors to a Wario-manned site are implored to donate to a fund to help the game gets its release a la Kickstarter or Crowdfunder sites. Visitors can “donate” to the fund by clicking on a Facebook “like” or Twitter “tweet” button to drive up the fake money count. When it reaches five bajillion coins, you receive a coveted “I crowdfarted” digital badge [and presumably a clump of broccoli], followed by similar high-falutin’-style prizes all the way up to 100 katrillion coins, which gets you a trailer for the yet-to-be-released Wii U game [and, we would have to presume, a video of the campfire scene from “Blazing Saddles”].

“Game & Wario” is set for a June 23, 2013 but you can try to get your crowdfarter badge at the official Crowdfarter site.
