Hillary’s Smash and Dash
An 8-bit game for Stylist magazine
“I’ve had an idea and I need your help… I want to make an 8-bit computer game!” — Tom Gormer, Photography Director at Stylist Magazine.
On the run up to the US elections, Stylist were running an article on Hillary Clinton’s campaign journey. Paying homage to the eighties 8-bit retro revival, (another hot topic in the up-coming issue thanks to Paul Smith, Anya Hindmarch and Netflix Original, Stranger Things) Tom insisted that the issue should launch with an actual arcade game, naturally.
We were only too happy to oblige.
We had an idea but needed the skills and expertise to make it happen… Eight Arms were quick to turn our retro 8-Bit American dream into reality.
– Tom Gormer, Photography Director at Stylist Magazine
Over three levels, you play Hillary on her race to The White House, smashing glass ceilings and escaping the clutches of The Donald along the way.
The game launched with a feature in the magazine and had 10,000 plays within its first week!
