Didn’t this come out weeks ago on play store?
Very timely game. I remember playing this one when it was a WIP.
Only 35k? Also, “messiest drama in American history?” Not even close. Read some US history.
It’s free if you don’t mind timers and it’s a joke. Humour’s picky like that. It definitely won’t be for everyone. It’s why most humour based games on HG don’t do terribly well (although there are exceptions.) I dunno, maybe I’m desensitized. Where I’m from people pull fun at our politicians all the time whether they’re generally popular or not, and no one takes particular offense.
This was fun! Somehow it was available in the Play Store a week ago (you might want to check that) and I picked it up right then. For a free game, well worth it.
You should see the memes here, they’re hilarious as hell. Even the representative of my area puts them in his page
Great, now COG makes political statements. I think i will pass.
I’m not sure where else to let anyone know this, but the last bullet point in the first post is listed twice.
EDIT: It is like this in the blog post on the main site, as well.
Are you implying that COG wasnt political before? We can literally support anti-authoritarian movements in most official COG titles. The staff have even made their opinions known very frequently. By comparison this game is just a light and fun tongue in cheek reference to american politics. Like, right winger arent just a mass of trump supporters either, joking about trump is kind of universal nowhadays.
Post typos to support AT choiceofgames DOT com.
COG has literally always been political my dude
this is a Hosted Game, not a COG title, so no the company is not making a “political statement” by publishing a satirical title of current events
I hadn’t realized this title was completed! I love seeing things go from a WIP thread to an official release. I’ll be checking it out, it’ll be nice to play something silly these days
You new here or something? Lmao
Okay, friendly reminder: Running a government is not similar to running a business, those are completely different levels but are connected.
With that being said, This game is already promising alot of comedy and political-thriller by just existing or something alike
Disagree. Running a business and running a government are totally different.
One is about maximizing profit for shareholders. The other is, in theory, about maximizing long-term health, well-being, and sustainability of a population.
These two objectives are, broadly speaking, in direct opposition to one another.
-Running a business and running a government are totally different.
That’s what I meant
Oof someone’s getting old , Btw I think its a nice game, and its free, so, no harm done to anybody
‘Free’ isn’t exactly true. You can buy it if you don’t want To wait 20 minuets to continue to the next part.
I’m just gonna wait
