Democracy 3
  • GENREStrategy

Democracy 3 simulates the motivations, loyalties and desires of everyone in the country. A custom-designed neural network is used to model individual voters, each which varying memberships of voting groups, political parties and pressure groups. Each voters income is modeled, along with their levels of complacency and cynicism. This is the most sophisticated political strategy game ever created.

Despite being vastly detailed under-the-hood, Democracy 3 has a unique user interface that makes visualizing the connections between laws, policies, voters and situations easy. A simple iconic-based view of your countries issues allows you to 'drill-down' through all the relationships between policies and voters to quickly analyze the impacts of your decisions. Your trade policy may affect GDP, which will affect unemployment, which will effect poverty, and thus crime, leading to a change in tourism, which affects GDP...

Each individual voter is a mixture of a subset of the 21 different voter groups represented within the game. They might be a young, wealthy, liberal socialist commuter, or a retired conservative religious capitalist, for example. Not only this, but the extent to which they identify each of those groups is both variable, and can be affected by your policies in the long term. Convert your country to religion, or atheism, to capitalism, or socialism by careful and nuanced adjustment of your policies and laws over time. A 'focus group' feature lets you look at individual voters and see exactly how they came to a decision to vote for you (or not!).

  1. Okay
    by DamonK, USA - Oct 4th 2014

    An okay game, but I got a bored with it pretty quick. I'm a big fan of simulation games, but maybe this one isn't for me.

  2. For those who enjoy being hated.
    by monkeynutsmatt, United Kingdom - Sep 24th 2014

    Like most polititians in a modern democracy, owners of this game are undoubtedly hated.

    The members of the public are impossible to please, one group dislike the way you tip-toe over crime, so you introduce the death penalty, this annoys another group, so you introduce more power to the unions, this upsets another group, so you raise road tax, this upsets another group, so you ……….. you get the picture.

    A very detailed and well thought out game, I have never played the previous democracy's so this was a first for me, and safe to say i'm impressed. I'll be honest, I haven't a clue what i'm doing !! Yet the experience is still satisfactory and enjoyable. There are many policies you can introduce or abolish, many sliders to adjust how much effort/money goes into them, many variables to take into account and many things that can go wrong. I barely scrape through a term, on the cusp of being elected out of office , yet I shall replay and change my tactics slightly to find the initial problem solved…… yet now I have 100 more to deal with!

    Highly recommended.

  3. Too complicated for me
    by MaitrePlante, Canada - Aug 25th 2014

    I did not play this game a lot because of its hard mechanism... Maybe it's just me, but it was not the kind of game I tought it would have been.
