Stores Nationwide Vote For Democracy


15th February 2008

Democracy, the political strategy game on PC from Ascaron Entertainment, is elected into stores across the UK today. Players take control of countries modelled on real democratic nations such as the UK, USA, France, Germany or Sweden.

As Prime Minister or President, players need 50% of the vote at each election to remain in power. Think strategically to secure position for as long as possible - implement the necessary new policies or solve national crises to placate or rile voters.

Make decisions on a number of controversial subjects including the legality of cannabis, drinking laws, street violence, fuel tax or the Armed Services that serve to either attract voters or dispel the voting public. You could choose to maintain the 'special relationship' with America, or alternatively look to Europe for closer alliances.

Whatever you decide, your electorate will tell you what it thinks; the response means winning and losing power.
