What is Political Animals about?
Political Animals is an election simulation game set within a world populated by corrupt crocodiles and meritocratic mice. In a political contest where corruption is always around the corner, we want players to find out how incorruptible they really are. Do you have the integrity of Mousey or the ruthlessness of Croccy? Will you fight your campaign on issues and in the best interests of the people, or will you succumb to the easier path of bribery and intimidation? Will you win votes...or will you buy them?
Each turn you spend points to move your candidate and their supporting agents around the political landscape to whip up popular support. You can bribe the voters to support you, raise funds from the wealthy, give gifts to the influential local district patrons, or hold rallies to build grass-roots support from the electorate. Along the way, expect to encounter random events that test your moral mettle, scandals both real and fabricated
This new turn-based strategy game is developed by Philippines-based studio Squeaky Wheel and published by Democracy-3 developers Positech Games. Political Animals features a choice of playable characters, a choice of different maps and a number of strategies you can employ to win over the population, district by district.
