You've waited a year since our last game, but the time for patience is finally over. You can at last enjoy yourselves by playing KoopaTV's third videogame! What a great way to close out 2015, and shame to all the other gaming sites that have already declared their game of the year for 2015. This may be the last game to be released in the year 2015 (and in some timezones we're in 2016 already), but at KoopaTV, we've intended it to be a contender for the best.
We would like to introduce you to Capture the Confederate Flag. This is a game thematically inspired by all of the confederate flag controversies earlier in 2015. It'd be cool if the game could release immediately during that fallout, but game development takes time and can't take advantage of current events.
We're aware that in the digital space, the Battle Flag of Northern Virginia is being censored from many gaming portals. We hope that won't happen to our game for its tasteful portrayal of Southern heritage.
Capture the Confederate Flag features characters and themes that avid KoopaTV fans may recognise, such as Robert E. Stoutland and Confederate Metagross. It also uses the Stars and Firebars sprite I made over two and a half years ago that I thought was clever enough to be its own article. (Though it wasn't the only article that day.) We've also seen one of the villains. So let's just embed the game already:
Note 2: Click here for a less laggy version of the game for worse computers. It's very slightly different gameplay-wise and a bit worse graphically. Close superfluous programs!
The game provides the opportunity to learn a fact or two about each of the eleven states that formally joined the Confederate States of America back in the early 1860s. Whether it be Alabama's cotton production or Tenneessee's penchant for being musical, it's an educational experience that I think represents the Southern United States well, compared to its usually awful representation. Still, fun first before education, of course!
And it wouldn't be a KoopaTV game if there wasn't some political agenda behind it, so let's talk about what the setting is in-universe.
It's a not-so-distant future where Hillary Clinton is the “ruler of America”, and she has ordered that every Confederate object in the Southern states be moved to a museum in Washington DC, where she believes they belong. (She probably believes they're symbols of hatred, or maybe she's just a shrill jerk.) These include every state capital's Battle Flag of Northern Virginia, along with General Robert E. Lee's casket.
You play as Robert E. Lillipup, a young pup that sees his region's history being stripped from within. Now instead of traditional Southern values permeating the land, there are assholes like Dylann Roof taking women hostage and shooting people. Robert undergoes a coming-of-age story as he fights back and travels the Southern states. He's only a young'n, so the only move he's learned is Secret Power. Fortunately, that's all he needs, since Secret Power's effect changes depending on the location! Robert breaks into the Washington DC museum repeatedly, guided by a hologram of General Lee while pursued by Hillary Clinton.
What happens when the flags are returned to every state capital? A legendary figure appears from the past, not content with Hillary's utter incompetence. Then it's truly time for war...

If Hillary really did have her way, this website wouldn't exist. Neither would much of the videogame industry.
