Right before the presidential elections in Mexico, planned for July of 2012, a local software enterprise has developed a smart-phone game that shows how to commit fraud at the elections. The game, called Guerras Electorales (Electoral Wars)and created by a team of developers from Innox, offers its users 33 different ways of cheating to control the political campaign of a presidential candidate and to contribute for this candidate to either win or lose a fictional election.
