Democracy is BACK! Democracy 4 is currently available in an alpha build to people who want to pre-order. We have taken our time (too much time!) to really give the political strategy game an update worthy of the wait. We have a totally revamped user-interface, tons of new policies, situations and events, new graphics, a far richer and more complex simulation, and incorporated tons of 2020-style political messaging into our game :D. Democracy 4 lets you take the role of President / Prime minister, govern the country (choosing its policies, laws and other actions), and both transform the country as you see fit, while trying to retain enough popularity to get re-elected...

Here is some of the new stuff in the latest version of Democracy!
Completely revamped user-interface, using crisp vector graphics! Icons resize on the main screen to show popularity / finances / influence or values. Policy areas resize dynamically. New screens show voter finances in-depth and tons more improvements to the UI
New policies to implement including Anti-Corruption Agency, Body Cameras, Border-wall, Helicopter-Money, Quantitative Easing, Carbon Capture, Capital Controls, Congestion-Charging, Prison-Regimes, Tear-Gas, Rubber Bullets, Gender-Transition and a ton of content that used to be in the DLC packs for Democracy 3.
Completely new events. Almost every event in the game has been replaced with new, sometimes more topical ones, including Cryptocurrency Crash, Coastal Oil Spill, Virus Outbreak, High-rise Blaze, Cyber-Attack, Football Team Defection, Female Leader, Gay Leader, School Shooting, Social Media Stupidity, Quantum Computing Breakthrough and lots more
New mechanics including...Coalition government and third-parties, allow for more accurate modelling of different countries. Emergency Powers give you more political capital in a crisis! Dilemmas can have 3 or more choices and display the outcomes once selected. Media reports give feedback on what the public thinks, and Donors and Ministers make specific political demands in exchange for their support!
An overhaul of the simulation allows us to model and track things in greater detail, providing a much more nuanced and sophisticated simulation of the thousands of virtual voters that make up the electorate.
We recommend checking out our developer blogs on YouTube to see how the game looks in motion, but here are a bunch of recent screenshots of the game showing how it looks. Click to enlarge :D
