WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – In a game dedicated to his hero Ron Paul, Daniel Williams has raised eyebrows of sharp-eyed gamers.

It appears that the “Ron Paul: The Road to REVOLution” video game is actually copied and pasted from a template, and the character models came from various sources from Super Nintendo games of the 1990s.

In the game, Paul appears to be a modified version of “Waluigi” — an evil version of the “Mario Brother” Luigi.

The crowd that Williams has shown in the screenshots is ripped directly from the SNES Game “Earthbound.” Finally, the enemy character is a modified version of a “Monstar” from the Xbox live game “Braid.”

The source code also revealed that the game is being made via a template instead of being a new design like Williams has promised.

In a statement to Buzzfeed, Williams called it “unfortunate” for leaving “an early version of the game in an unprotected directory online.”

“Rough drafts are rough,” Williams told Buzzfeed. “This is just some trolls attempt to find whatever they can to make some noise.”

The Kickstarter for this project is still taking funds and has reached $9,782 from 227 backers. Its initial goal was $5,000.
