    Political Hack
  1. If you are unaware, Steam now includes a new feature called Steam Greenlight where you can display a game and receive votes, if voted for enough your game will be distributed on Steam. All that's required is: A square branding image (similar to a box cover) to represent your game in lists and search At least 1 video showing off your game or presenting your concept At least 4 screenshots or images A written description of the game along with tentative system requirements It should be considered, just put up President Forever 2012 and perhaps bundle it with Campaigns Forever and see if the
  2. A few ideas for the 2012 game, some big some small: - Putting states in your strategy should make it easier to gain traction there (Santorum in the midwest, Paul in caucus states). - "Add caucus states to strategy" "Add proportional states to strategy" and "Add winner take all" states to strategy buttons for convenience. - A fourth slot in theme, most candidates run on their experience, leadership, and integrity, but they also have a cause or issue. Conservatism, Liberty, Change, Patriotism, or even specific issues such as Outsourcing and Campaign Finance. - Make it so candidates who are
  3. Excellent, hopefully this makes it easier to pull off dark-horse victories.
  4. Will the "how well established" change to reflect the election better? We've seen that Romney, Gingrich, Paul, and Santorum we're organized better than the other candidates. Some candidates also seem to have percent ceilings you cannot break.
  5. Played a game as Paul, got endorsed by Terry Branstad, John Boehner, The Des Moines Register, campaigned in Iowa since day one, got Rand and the supporters, modded it so I had more energy points, modded it so I started with a slightly higher percentage, had full foot soldiers and released two pro-Paul ads and two anti-Romney ads before Iowa and still lost (to George Pataki, who I added but by no means was a strong Iowa contender), garnering an amazing 8% of the vote. Something is wrong here. Also, the game is taking this long because it's going to be awesome, so do not complain.
  6. Unrelated, I created a scenario and added an independent. Primaries work fine but the general election map spawns an Out of Bounds error. Any ideas?
  7. Not to be a derp, but how does one go about doing that?
  8. Not a bug per say, but I'm having Schrodinger's files here and I've wondered if anyone has had this same problem. I have many scenarios saved to President Forever 2008 + Primaries, but when I open my program files and go to scenarios, only the defaults show up. This is problematic since I'm trying to export a scenario I have created to have my friend test it and give me feedback and it's not showing up. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm using Windows 7. I know it's a Windows problem but I was wondering if anyone knew a fix.
  9. 1952 US Presidential Election: Eisenhower was the main reason the Republicans won, and Truman almost ran for a third term but failed. Stassen was considered serious. Very interesting election year. 1912 US Presidential Election: Wilson, Taft, Roosevelt. And that's not including the primary on Wilson's side. 1920 US Presidential Election: Primary decided in a smoke filled room. A good year for Republicans, but so are a lot of the scenarios.
  10. Governor Forever would be great but it would have to narrow down the races that you play. 1-4 for each state, one for states like Montana, Idaho, Utah, etc where election ares fairly boring. States like New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, California, and Florida would be interesting with the right elections. That'd be one big game however.
  11. President Forever 2012 should receive a release on Steam, it will get the name out there more (it will appear in searches, new releases, etc) and an attempt can be made to incorporate Steam play multiplayer (if that is something the production team is comfortable with, of course). Releasing a game on steam has been a great thing for a lot of independent game studios and gives a lot of opportunities to promote the game (including winter and summer events with challenges. You would also be able to add achievements to the game, which in a game like President Forever, could be fun and challengi
  12. Another addition needs to be momentum from second and third place in early states. I played Keyes in the '96 mod and got second place in Alaska 1 point behind Buchanan, but didn't nab any momentum off of barely losing.
  13. Some President Forever ideas: Some mechanic to make your supporters more dedicated. Getting supporters is one thing, keeping them is another. As we've seen with this election cycle people like Perry, Cain, and Gingrich can get supporters, but can't hold on to them. Romney and Paul on the other hand can keep their supporters, Paul more-so than Romney but some Romney supporters are fairly ardent. Straw polls, of course. State and county tea parties and interest groups for endorsers. Media relations. The ability to deal with the media, get it to pay attention to you, and to keep it from bein
  14. We should still have news events that happen past October happen. There should also be more consideration into the organization and supporter dedication of candidates. Not all candidates should be 60-20-20 with their supporters.
