Sounds like corruption: Democracy 3 on sale now

democracy 3

Positech Games’ Democracy 3 is now on sale. Just like democracy in real life HA HA POLITICAL SATIRE.

Democracy 3 is a political simulator in which you take on the role of prime minister/president/other leader of a real-world modern-day country, and set about making things Better. And then, most likely, sacrificing your principles to stay in power. Or mucking up horribly and ushering in a new dark age. One or the other. Either way, there are all sorts of links and simple graphs indicating what each mandate or change you make will affect, so you’ll likely have some idea of the problems you’re about to cause. It sounds fascinating; I am honestly curious about how quickly my misguided notions of politics would lead to a national collapse.

The game will cost you around £20, and you can either buy it directly from the developer or on Steam. Note, however, that buying it direct from the developer will also net you a Steam key, which is rather neat.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      It’s a fun little sandbox game – relatively ‘easy’ though to just ramp up spending on technology and let GDP jump quickly to outpace your spending. If only that worked all the time in real life 🙂
