Stardock today announced the launch of The Political Machine 2012, giving players a chance to play as one of the 2012 US political candidates in a simulated election. The game is available via major digital distribution portals.
“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 take to the campaign trail against a computer controlled opponent or a human challenger over the Internet. Can you conduct a campaign savvy enough to win the hearts and minds of America’s voters to achieve victory in the 2012 presidential election?”
