Jonathan Rieder Lundkvist created PolitikerStarcraft, a Starcraft 2 tournament where Sweden’s political parties battle it out.
It was the finals which Lundkvist found the most entertaining. “The Green Party put up a really valiant struggle, especially in the third game where I thought Vänsterpartiet [the Left Party] would lose at several points. His Baneling detonations was absolutely beautiful.” In the end though, it was the Left that won – whether that’ll prove true at the elections in September remains to be seen however.
