National Tejo Championship 2000
Categories: Computer / Internet, computer installation, Installation
A sport videogame for people of all ages to enjoy! Colombia’s national sport is crazy and fun! Select one of the many typical characters and compete your way to the top. Rival your closest friends and family on the 2 vs. mode or try to fight your destiny and challenge Death on the solo mode. Tejo is simple and amusing: just aim and shoot! Throw as many metallic weights as possible into a clay basket full of explosive targets. The louder the explosion, the more points you get. Boom, Boom, BOOM! This game is written to offer a neutral ground in which Colombians that in real life would never meet, meet. The game juxtaposes and confronts members of all social and economical milieus whitin a big Tejo tournament. In the game you can find a series of fictional characters that are either a caricature of single real persons or of a group of people that share similar features. There is for example the “Andean Farmer”, the “Banana Picker”, the “Godo ultra Godo” (conservative ultra conservative), the “Megalomaniac expresident”… Each one with their own idiosyncrasy, the game opens a invites the players to participate in a very-necessary-for our-own-society-health political debate.
