Create your campaign strategy and hit the digital campaign trail in this classic election simulator
Stardock has announced that the 2012 edition of its political PC strategy game, The Political Machine, is available now for $9.95 through most digital distributors, including Steam. 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 can take to the campaign trail against a computer controlled opponent or a human challenger over the Internet.
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.
