Today Stardock released The Political Machine 2016, allowing players to give speeches, get on talk shows, hire unsavory operatives, and, in general, do whatever it takes to win the presidency in a political strategy game.
This title gives you the choice to play as one of over a dozen candidates, including Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and more. If you prefer, you can also create your own custom candidate, complete with avatar, party, and hometown.
Patrick Shaw, producer, stated, “The game deals with topics like the Keystone XL Pipeline, human trafficking, and other issues that are current and relevant to this year’s election. We’ve added a poll tracking feature so that you can see how your own political races are matching up to what’s going on in the United States right now.”
This title also features opportunities for candidates to interview on various talk shows in an attempt to raise their ratings. You’ll need to keep on your toes and deal with random events, including torrid affairs, natural disasters, and email scandals if you hope to come out ahead of your competition.
