Game created by Advisa

A much-needed injection of fun has been put into the ever rancourous Brexit debate with an online game featuring the notorious '£350m bus'.

The bus, which was used by the Vote Leave campaign, was at the centre of the claim that dropping out of Europe would lead to an extra £350m a week being spent on the NHS. That claim, endorsed by foreign secretary Boris Johnson among others, was later revealed to be false.

In the first stage of the game, users have to 'drive' the bus across bumpy terrain towards the first goal of an EU referendum. They can use their keyboard or mouse to accelerate.

The game then moves on to other major political events such as Theresa May becoming prime minister, the 2016 Tory conference, the autumn statement, May meeting Trump, the Article 50 letter being delivered, and the 2017 general election.

For gamers who manage to reach the end, they're rewarded with the confirmation that they are "strong and stable", the mantra of May before her devastating general election fiasco.

The game was created for Swedish financial firm, Advisa.

Josef Rantamäki, on the marketing team of Advisa, told IBTimes UK: "We wanted to make a lighthearted bit of content that taps into the great European issue of our time.

"With so much uncertainty and differences of opinion, it's often hard to predict what's going to happen next. It's all very serious, important stuff, but sometimes it's worth poking a little fun at the situation.

"Over the last year or so we kept seeing this red bus turn up in the British newspapers, so it felt like a good excuse to make something a little tongue in cheek that spoke to this uncertain and economically volatile period."
