About

Welcome to Africa
Have you ever wanted to be president or prime-minister? Convinced you could do a better job of running the country? Let's face it, you could hardly do a worse job than our current political leaders.Take Control of African Politics Democracy 3: Africa is the new standalone 're-imagining' of the hit political strategy game 'Democracy 3'. Set entirely in countries on the continent of Africa, D3:A puts you in charge of these countries and challenges you to stay in power whilst fixing each country's problems, improving the quality of life for your electorate, and steering them towards greater prosperity.



This turn-based political strategy game uses a unique icon-driven interface to help you navigate the most complex political and economic simulation ever seen in a computer game, custom-built on its own proprietary neural network. Democracy 3: Africa simulates the myriad interactions between voters, policies, economic and political variables, political parties and the various situations that develop over time.



Democracy 3: Africa uses the base design and gameplay from the original game but the diversity of social and economic situations in Africa presents you with new challenges and opportunities. Foreign aid and investment takes on a new meaning and often comes with strings attached. Serious issues like malnutrition and access to clean water could be a matter of life and death for the poorest. This new game will let you try your hand at governing the diverse democracies of Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Zambia, Senegal, Tunisia, Botswana and Mauritius.When you step down, will your country be in a better state than when you took up office?



Although it builds on the existing game, Democracy 3: Africa has completely new artwork, music and a series of new events and dilemmas tuned to the issues and situations that are relevant in contemporary Africa.

Can you turn your country into an economic powerhouse that competes with the strongest world economies? Is this the vision you have for your country, or are you aiming for a socialist haven? Can you improve health and education for all your people? Does a little corruption help oil the wheels of power? And can you do this whilst keeping the competing demands of the people under control?

Who needs cities and technology anyway, when you can have the majority of your citizens out in the fields doing an honest days toil?

Flip Flops
You have managed to second-guess your policy decisions so many times that the electorate are accusing you of being the 'flip-flop' politician. Perhaps you should be more decisive in future?

They say its important to stick to what you do best, and looking at our economy, we grow food and export it better than anything else. Bananas for Lunch!

Democracy 3 Africa reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
A very nice Pastime, if you like to click and enjoy playful details and supposed hyper complexity. The Principle and System of State Simulation seems as simple as it is complicated. Easy to steer after some Trial runs, once the Legalities are well looked through, but with increasing Difficulty rather complicated to control the Coupled systems in such a way that one can make your potential Electorate right. The Multiplicity of Possibilities to shape one'S State contributes Acricably to the Ubiquitous Entertainment: Surveillance and punishment total, Boundless Freedom and hardcore capitalism, or rather a closed Socialism. The Ambivalence of various Policies is quite realistically presented, so a Ban on Child labour also initially has negative Consequences for the poor Rural Population or the Legalisation of all Drugs, it is astonishing that problems that cannot be used in this way. Expected-> To stick with the Example, it turns out to be a helpful Skill to compromise and, for example, to only uncrimminalize Cannabis. In Principle, if one wants to be successful and popular, Decisions must be weighed up and checked with regard to their manifold Effects. This is very interesting at first. Overall, I recommend the Game for a short entertaining simulation kick, which can turn into habitual clicking Through relatively quickly.

Right in Advance: ES IS SCHWERER ALS THE NORMALE DEMOCRACY 3 However, I recommend it only to People who are interested in politics and have General Education in Politics. (If the Words "legislative, executive, judicial" don't tell you anything, you can forget about it here) Info: In short: A really very good Game! Originally posted by Karl Marx: "Being Radical is to get to the Root of the Matter." You have to act Radically in this Game! Most Countries are destroyed! Economical, Military, Social. You have to save these Countries! Originally posted by Unknown: Politics is the Art of getting the Money from the Rich and the Votes from the poor, both on the Pretext of wanting to protect one from the other. Capitalist, communist, socialist, democratic, social democratic? Your Choice! This Game is about building your own Country. One is elected for 3-7 Years and until then manages that Country has been selected. After that, you should win the Election otherwise is that Game end. In order to be elected, citizens must be fine. But that's Hard. Originally posted by Wolfram Weidner: Making policy: Invoking people so afraid that every Solution is right for them. For example, if you invest more in the Military, the Patriots are happy, but the Liberals don't like that. If Liberals aren't satisfied, they don't elect you. (At Worst, there is a Stop and that Game is off.) Everything Hangs together, though. When there is a War and you don't have a Military, the Liberals don't like you either. With the Military, there are fewer Unemployed people. Then you have to pay less Unemployed money. Etc. Usw. If someone now says, "These stupid Politicians! I can do all this better! "After 2h Of play, will say," How do the Politicians do that good? " Originally posted by Egon Bahr: International Politics is never about Democracy or Human rights. It's about the Interests of States. Remember that no matter what You're told in History class. Do you Renounced Democracy and oppress its People? or not? Your Choice! Conclusion: For all those who are interested in Politics, this Game is a must! If you want to be a politician for a Day, you've come to the right place! However, I recommend Democracy 3 (Normal) as this is easier: http://store.steampowered.com/app/245470/?l=german Review of Democracy 3 (Normal): http://steamcommunity.com/id/JensK/recommended/245470 If you liked my Review, follow Our Review Program: http://store.steampowered.com/curator/12168974/
