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, find out just how incorruptible you 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 logistics to move your candidate and their staff around the political landscape to whip up popular support. Your choice of staff affects your strategy! A lawyer can settle your scandals, but a preacher can energize the population. Raise funds from the wealthy, give gifts to political patrons, or hold rallies to build grass-roots support from the electorate. Along the way, expect to encounter scandals both real and fabricated as well as random events that test your moral mettle.


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 large and continuously increasing set of playable characters, eight different maps and and infinite strategies you can employ to win over the population, district by district.

  • A bite-sized yet deep turn-based strategy game that you can play in 1-2 hour campaigns
  • Eight beautifully designed maps based on countries around the world
  • Numerous animal candidates to choose from and customize
  • Eight different staff types with special abilities to suit your campaign style
  • Political Events that draw inspiration from world politics

Political Animals reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Political animals is a strategy games that will lead your nerves to hard test think at least 2/3 shots in advance if you want to win. Quick description: political animals is an election simulation that takes place in a fictional world you will have control over one of the many animals and will you have to hoist up to win the elections for that you will have various actions in your hand, funds (money) and logistics (actions per round) are used to execute orders: move to a new neighborhood, rally to promote a specific file, campaign to get votes, buy a gift to increase the rating of a "citizen raise funds, special action. There are three influential citizens per district, an economic citizen, a logistics and a popular one. The economical serves to receive more money, the logistics do actions at a lower blow, and the popular bring back more people in the campaign to get votes. Citizens will be able to be with you where well with your opponent and in this case the effect will reverse you'll get less money, the shares cost more and you will bring less vote these for that the action "buy a gift" is the it you will swing between the two. the captured districts (80% of the votes) are more difficult to claim. Beyond the initial claim of two starting districts. After a certain time 15, 20, 30 days (round) the game stops and the votes are places! Random events create unpredictability that can disentangle any already established strategy and overthrow a catastrophic situation at times. Positive points: + the choice between a complete variety of candidates and have it can unlock another one over the course of the campaigns. + Game customization options include selection of candidates (including an advantageous trait, a disadvantage trait, and a special ability among different choices). + choose its campaign between two main axes (health, religion, public order, work, education and public works) + the different game cards more than one has unlocked as the campaigns. + the choice of his campaign team 3 people in all that go from the spy, to the activist, or even the lawyer, the courier; the reporter, the preacher or the security guard all having a special capacity, a benefit and a defect. + The opponent can be personalized from the attitude he will have towards you to the other criteria list if on. + The AI is good at the game, even if it performs useless actions (such as performing actions in the districts they can not win, or raising money on the last round) the negatives:-the childish look that could be put off certain. conclusion: Although the theme gives it the air of a casual and childish game, political animals to a sophisticated political gameplay and both complicated, these a good game, watch out for the heads to establish the best strategy. If you want a little gameplay video, feel free to go see the video I made. And if you like, don't hesitate to leave me a little blue thumb or subscribe to the channel! It will motivate me even more to provide you with videos and regular content. And it will reward the work done! =) https://youtu.be/bweNt0o4lnY
