Former HuffPost journalist aims to make an 'NBA 2K' for American politics

Nelson left HuffPost at the end of 2018 to work full time on the concept for the game. While at HuffPost, Nelson wrote a newsletter with a humorist spin on the day's political headlines. But Nelson says the news cycle can often feel like a "SportsCenter" highlight reel, continually cycling through provocative tweets and sound bites from politicians. And, because of that, Nelson said the average reader may think American politics are nothing more than a "Twitter-fueled boxing match, where occasionally there's a Supreme Court nominee or a major bill."
