London, 15th August 2008
For the first time on PC the Geo-political Simulator Game (GPS) is an ultra-real simulation of our world and its politics, from now until the end of the century. Energy, security, economy, environment, strategy, diplomatic alliances, culture policy, intelligence, infrastructure – anything could make you the greatest political leader of the 21st century ... if you stay in power!
The game interface consists predominantly of a world map with a number of icons representing the information available to you and your options. Reach any part of the world with one click on the map. Pause the game or skip forward in time with the time icons. Check the most important number in the game; your popularity rating or how many days you have left in office. Look up the GDP, population or 15 other examples of data on your allies and rivals, and keep track of your own country's economic strength and military force.
Also access your eleven ministries and read the weekly newspapers. Even get acquainted with the regular media personalities. Natural disasters or wars will be brought to your attention by a new icon on the screen, giving you the option of sending aid, breaking off treaties or declaring war on the countries involved.

You're in charge. You have the power. But do you have what it takes?
