Ever wondered how it would feel to be President?
Democracy 3 is the third instalment in the Democracy series.It was developed and published by Positech Games. Found this one in my Steam suggestions and gave it a shot.
Basically a mirror of ours albeit simplified to be compatible with the video game format. You can choose between four different countries, each with their own respective rules, policies, morals and preferences, each with their own respective problems as well so watch out for that.
Otherwise there’s not a lot to say, it’s planet Earth on a video game.
No story arcs at all, the narrative of the game is based on your decisions you make. It comprises of a screen notifying you about certain events that had happened or might happen in the future. You can be assassinated by some powerful groups if you aren’t careful.
The crux of the game, as the president/prime minister you oversee the country itself. From there you can see that there are various factors that affect the GDP of a country and these factors are usually interconnected and affected by other various factors.
My favorite part of the game however is implementing various policies. These will usually determine what state your country will be in the coming years. If you’re good enough you can completely change the direction and rules and regulations of the country, making it quite interesting.
This can be an incredibly boring game to most people since the gameplay is moving sliders and watching their effects but if you are interested in government simulations this is one of the most accurate ones out there. It's actually pretty fun for what it is and there's actually DLC for this game extending its lifetime by quite a bit.
