World Domination at Retail
Toronto, October 12, 2004 – DreamCatcher Games today announced that SuperPower 2, the only geopolitical simulation on the market, is now available at major retailers in North America.
In SuperPower 2 regular citizens are given Presidential powers as they seek world domination, but in order to be successful, players will need intelligence, political-savvy and a touch of shrewdness. Digital dictators will build up their own countries and increase influence in the broader world while competing against a sophisticated A.I. They will also have to master economic sanctions, political alliances, and military actions to wage battles. The craftiest gamers are able to fine-tune each country’s performance, from creating or breaking treaties, to making strategic decisions in particular military conflicts.
SuperPower 2 is developed by Canadian studio, GolemLabs, whose original SuperPower sold more than 200,000 units. The game has an ESRB rating of ‘T’ for Teen in North America and “3+ PEGI” in Europe. This title will begin shipping to European retailers on October 27th.
