From the title alone, you can pretty much guess that the 'Crackathon' game was made in response to the ongoing scandals that surround none other than Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto.

The game was created by Nick Mostowich and Chris Ngan, and it is a side-scrolling platform that features the now infamous mayor running and jumping around to collect pipes, marijuana leaves and bottles of alcohol, while stomping on the heads of police and the media. Collecting these items will increase your "party score," before the timer, or "public opinion" reaches zero.

When time is up, the video game announces that "You've been impeached!" followed by a smaller line of text in brackets, noting that Canadian mayors actually can't be impeached.
