With StarCraft: Brood War, recently re-released for free with its first new balance patch in years, there are two campaigns. There's the solo experience, where you play each of the three factions in an epic story of ambition, betrayal, and existential crisis against a backdrop of alien horrors, commanding vast armies and crack squadrons in a brutal bid for survival and dominance.
And then there's the political campaign.
If you've been following international news recently, you've probably heard about the impeachment of former president Park Geun-hye, as well as the criminal trials surrounding it that's dragged even the likes of Samsung into its widening gyre. Political systems and nature alike hate voids, though, and her replacements are already actively campaigning.
As caught by Kotaku, apparent frontrunner Moon Jae-in is bidding on both his countryfolks' esports zeitgeist and the recent re-release of South Korea's former king of gaming to attract the younger voting demographic to his cause.
By releasing two custom Brood War maps.
His YouTube account even has a timelapse of his creation of the map. Yes, a South Korean politician personally made a custom RTS map.
Of course, all he really did was modify an existing map to include put his name front and center. But as outreach attempts go, that's still more on the ball with the esports generation than anything else out there.
Whether or not his slate of policies are actually pro-esports and gaming is another thing entirely, of course.
StarCraft: Brood War is out free for PC, downloadable over the Blizzard client.
