Win the hearts and minds of America’s voters and
take the 2020 presidential election by storm in this exciting
political strategy game. Candidates include current Democratic
front-runners like Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and
Pete Buttigieg, as well as Internet favorites such as Andrew Yang
and Tulsi Gabbard. Republican candidates include Donald Trump,
George W. Bush and Mitt Romney.
Don’t like any of the current candidates? No problem, just
create your own! Or, if you believe everything is going to hell in
a handbasket, play as the Giant Meteor and adopt some truly wild
ideologies (ban all video games – they’ll rot your brain!).
The Political Machine 2020 features brand new unique ideology
trees for candidates, which allows them to play very differently
from each other. Throughout the game, you’ll visit Town Halls to
gain ideology points that you will be able to spend to own certain
issues. For instance, Bernie Sanders has ‘Medicare for All’ as an
issue he can own, while Donald Trump can use points to purchase the
‘Build the Wall’ issue.
Each issue is modded on a per-state basis with their voter
support based on data in order to allow for an accurate simulation
of how those issues will play out in different states. It’s
important to win 270 votes in the electoral college, so you’ll need
to pay attention to what issues voters care about in the swing
states. What plays well in Texas or California might hurt you in
Ohio or Florida.
The Political Machine 2020 is a complete rewrite of the original
versions of the game with vastly improved graphics and a more
sophisticated simulation that combines polling data, voter
enthusiasm, and the most recent US census results to deliver a game
that is both fun to play for casual players, and realistic enough
for political wonks.
Do you think you have what it takes? Take to the campaign trail
and show the nation why you should be the next President of the
United States of America!
