‘Mx Democracy’ is a project initiated by the Election Commission of India in association with NID, to develop a game for the people of India to help them have a clear knowledge about the process, rules and regulations of Indian elections. In Mx Democracy, the player takes on the role of a curious citizen who wishes
to understand how elections are conducted to appoint leaders. The objective of the game is to educate users about voter registration, election process and ethical voting. The game art included character design and mini game layout designs along with UI. The character design followed a strict specification of age and Indian wear along with Indian facial features. The mini game and maze layouts, were given the look of Indian streets, buildings, trees and other elements. The style of the art followed a casual and cartoon feature, to make the game visually more attentive for teenagers, the main target audience.
