Cliff Harris, master of the Indie Game Universe and the fearless leader of Positech Games, announced his plans to produce and release Democracy 3, a political simulation strategy game representing the next generation of the previous versions Democracy and Democracy 2.
In the Democracy series of games you play the role of President, Prime Minister or Leader of a fictitious country who has deal with economics, crime, terrorism, the environment, and various constituencies with their own interests. Positech plans incorporate the multitude of changes occurring now in the “real” geopolitical world and they may include fiscal cliffs, Stupid PACs and even political pundits.
The Democracy 3 visuals will look familiar to fans of Democracy and Democracy 2 but Positech plans to completely overhaul the decision making engine used in the previous versions. Positech will give the user more flexibility in how they use both private/free market solutions to problems as well as more accurate simulation of financial markets, voter cynicism and stuff
The ship date for the game is currently set as ‘2013’ and will definitely launch on the PC, Mac and possibly linux, iOS and Android. You can check out the demo of Democracy 2 using this link.
