    I really enjoyed Suzerain... for the first few days. It got boring after that. Hopefully, this can hold my attention.

    is this going to be political propaganda?

    and who had the ridiculous idea of photographing miniatures and calling it CGI?

    It's an interesting concept. A game where you are... what some retard in some part of Europe imagines the President of the United States is.

    I'll just be playing Hidden Agenda for millionth time since the 1980s since it's the only game of this kind that was ever any good.

    To be fair, at this point, it's pretty clear that being the President is actually kind of a joke. And the blurb is pretty spot on.

    It's gonna be shit unless you can do this.

    All joking aside, making such a game in the current political climate can only mean the devs are going to be pandering to the leftists, hard.

    Or not, and every little thing in the game will just be nitpicked to death by either side looking for the enemy lurking in the shadows.

    No matter what the devs do, they'll receive an unending flow of hate coming their way.
    Hope it'll be worth it for them :lol:

    It'll certainly be worth it for spectators to appreciate the mayhem around it.

    This needs an edit for 2021 where this makes your popularity skyrocket, since both the grassroots left and right hate Israel now. The only people who like them are establishment pols (for obvious, corrupt reasons).

    Didn't read their site as it's not a genre I'm interested in.

    But yes, that does sound pretty obvious :lol:

    Going to be tough to match the stellar writing of Suzerain, but at least there's gameplay.

    Blompf simulator in the current year? Going to guess they started working on this before the election.

    Same devs as This Is The Police. That game had a lot of potential but fell off after a few hours, hopefully this game is much more consistent.

    Going by this, it seems to be disappointingly linear in terms of roleplaying this or that ideological stance. You're basically roleplaying a guy with no convictions whose main goal is just to get lifetime immunity through his political maneuvering.

    Look on the upside, they can re-release blompf simulator in 2025 as a definitively butthurt edition for mega sales.

    Somehow I have the feeling that you shouldn't take the game too seriously...

    Not a bad idea, games are overpriced nowadays, multiple times.

    So, is this a TRUMP! simulator, or a Biden one?
    Can you try to make harsh-but-good policies, or are you limited to only lol-evil choices?
