Modern Government simulator

Recommended Posts

I've just found this game, was directed here from the Paradox forums. Just curious as to why you're not on Steam ? For easy access to your games ?
I very much like the looks of this and is something I have been after for a while. Accuracy, to sum it up.
Have you ever thought of going one step further ?

What I mean by this is into actual government. For as long as I can remember I've been after an accurate government simulator with all that entails, politics, the economy, world affairs... etc etc.
Obviously, this is no mean feat, but there is very little out there to resemble this. Democracy 3 tries and fails, as the accuracy simply isn't there.
It could follow on from the election game. I might envisage this..

You must form a government. Appoint your cabinet ( much like democracy does it, but more detailed with character traits and loyalty/ effectiveness in the post )
You implement your manifesto ( or not - the choice is yours, but you will suffer the kickbacks if you don't )
You see how the economy and social transformation occurs, if at all, or goes backwards.
You deal with daily world events and political shenanigans at home.
Every year you set a budget, see how things are going economically and socially - and abroad.

So really, to sum it all up. I'm looking for a detailed simulation that feels real.

It isn't a government simulator whatsoever, it only simulates elections,with primary,general election and an editor.

Yes, I gathered that. I was simply wondering if they have thought of going the next step into a government simulator.

Yes,Actually quite recently,I and many other people,except for a few were very excited for it but for some reason @admin_270 decided to not go forward with it which I believe is a missed opportunity. He said he will be adding "Incumbency" features in the future,which who knows when the ETA is on that,as we have been waiting on voting blocs and favorability for over a year now,also second round elections.

It would take at least one year of development, more likely two, to do it properly. I'm not at the point to be able to do that. Much work remains to do on the Infinity games.

We're not on Steam right now because it has certain development requirements that would be added overhead, but it might happen at some point in the future.

Thanks very much for the reply. Most interesting to hear. I am very keen on seeing a decent government simulation done. Have you ever thought of taking on staff to do this ? Or engaging with a publisher such as Paradox ?
I'm not a developer, so don't know the ins and outs, but thanks for the information anyway.

Well I'm sure it would sell well, especially if it were marketed and platformed well.

 

So would non-FPTP or Presidential election games, but both are on the backburner with no ETA of being serious projects... :(
