The Political Machine 2012 Released

Stardock Entertainment announces a chance to take another ride on the virtual election cycle with the release of The Political Machine 2012, an updated version of this simulation of the squeaky clean world of U.S. politics. Here's the deal:

Calling all armchair presidential candidates! Today Stardock Entertainment announced the 2012 edition of its popular political strategy game, The Political Machine. Play as a myriad of political powerhouses including Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich or create your own candidate from scratch and march toward the White House in the best election simulator available. The Political Machine 2012 is available now for $9.95 through most digital distributors, including Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/211120/). It requires a Windows PC and an Internet connection to download.

The Political Machine 2012 features updated political topics from across the United States such as Afghanistan, the economy, Obamacare, income inequality, gun control, gay rights and the national debt. Regional issues require the candidate to walk a tight rope between appealing to the widest range of voters and appearing to “flip flop”.

Players take to the campaign trail against a computer controlled opponent or a human challenger over the Internet. Can you conduct a campaign savvy enough to win the hearts and minds of America’s voters to achieve victory in the 2012 presidential election?

Stardock CEO and President Brad Wardell stated, “The algorithms involved in this simulator are frighteningly accurate. When playing the game as true to reality as possible, the last two presidential election results came very close to what the game ultimately predicted.”

The 2012 version includes user interface features allowing for fans to create custom candidates and post them on Facebook, Steam achievements, graphical improvements, new gameplay features and more.

You know, I love politics, and I love games, but the idea of a game based on politics is just so unappealing? Is it just me? Maybe I feel this way because games are fantasy and politics is reality?

Actually, there's a board game called 1960: The Making of a President that's *excellent*, a real brain-burner.

Also, the 1993 PC game Shadow President was quite good.
