Democratic Party’s virtual reality game featuring Renho draws mixed reactions

Picture1In the game "VR Renho," players can become the prime minister trying to endure questioning from DP President Renho during Diet deliberations. Renho attacks with some of her famous lines such as "Huh? I don't understand the mean of that," and "Where do you see the freedom to play around here?" The game displays the player's level of composure in the face of Renho's grilling by measuring changes in the player's pulse rate.

The DP has received strong criticism from both outside and inside the party that the game is "stupid," but the DP's youth division that developed the game, maintains that it would like to connect with young people who are currently disinterested in politics.
