Being the Vice President of the World means asking not what you can do for your countrymen, but what your countrymen can do for you
Atlus U.S.A. has released a new video for Citizens of Earth, a role-playing game from indie developer Eden Industries due to arrive later this year, for PC, PS4, PS Vita, 3DS and Wii U. Citizens of Earth pits players as the second-highest-paid bureaucrat in the land. The game begins just after winning a long, drawn-out candidacy, and the VP returns to his hometown for some taxpayer-funded rest and relaxation. But after just one night passes, the VP awakens to find the world gone berserk. As elected official he has two responsibilities: investigate what's caused people to go crazy, and delegate as much of the dirty work as possible.
Citizens of Earth has 40 citizens to collect to fight in your party, each with their own unique play-style and out-of-combat world abilities. Everyone in town will lend a hand, from the way-too-jittery Barista and the ever-optimistic Weatherlady to the notoriously skeezy car salesman and the ridiculously shy (and totally real) Sasquatch.
The game features 16-bit standard graphics but with real-time lighting, HD art, a day/night cycle, weather effects, and more.
