You led the revolution that freed the People's Republic of Basenji from the shackles of a corrupt monarchy. But now the new regime will be tested. You are the Glorious Leader who must hold onto power by maintaining the delicate balance between the interests of fundamentalists, capitalists, patriots, and liberals. However be aware, your brother, Farouk, consolidates power and influence with the intention to overthrow you! How will you manage affairs with your neighboring countries while ensuring you don't attract too much negative attention from the Americans? Will you be a generous donor to the United Nations? Or an international pariah building nuclear weapons in secret? The choice is yours in Rogue State.Features
  • A world of possibilities! Over thirty possible state purchases, six clandestine projects, eight potential neighbors and hundreds of randomly generated events. No two games will ever be the same and the approaches you take in one game may not necessarily be successful in another.
  • Manage complex relationships that are more nuanced than war and peace. Forging unlikely alliances may just keep Basenji from the kinds of wars your leadership can't survive. Other leaders have distinct personalities that may inform your tactics.
  • Choose cabinet leaders to help manage your country. Maintain their favor by accomplishing relevant objectives.
  • Forge alliances, develop tourism, promote trade. Invade countries, assassinate your rivals, nuke the planet.
  • Beautiful comic imagery inspired by French comic artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud.
  • Thousands of lines of spoken dialogue, and the ability to play as either a male or female Head of State.
  • Be the dictator you need to be. Tackle problems with the level of freedom or oppression you desire.

Rogue State reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
A game whose concept pleases me. I bought it to support both dev. I would probably not play too deeply because it lacks a thing for me a French version. It is good though for me to support his indie titles which are often more fun than some AAA. If you really want to see a patch en bloom to be able to throw in it more thoroughly.

Product received for free positive points simple and understandable interface concept justifying a gradual start negative points lack of variety of actions difficulty very strong system of actions per round doubtful rogue State is a j geopolitical that does not convince completely. Although he has good ideas and in particular a good script, he lacks a certain richness, a variety in choices and a more enjoyable, less punitive balancing.

Product received for free a condition under the yoke of a tyrant and in the phase of being removed, that is strangely reminiscent of a situation that I already know. Obviously, a man is there to bring the slope back to our dogs of revolutionaries, and to make our nation of indidles shine again... AYE Caramba! Reconstruction, commitment of Zealander minions, negotiations, corruption, will be the means to regain your lost capitalist brilliance, because no one is fooled, we will have to deal with other countries despite everything; and with both physical and mental exploitation of individuals. -Ahmed, bring me a coffee please, I need to unpack. -Mister wants more capitalist or local coffee? -What question, of course I want the 2, so I can savor in advance the taste of invader/destroyer mixed with our coffee so pure... I feel like drinking their souls to his corrupt rulers Ah Ah Ah Ah.....-...-Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah ha Ah Ah... Let's see what did I say, Ahmed? AH Yes, a local coffee STP without sugar, because the latter still comes from his dogs of capitalists, we still have to rebuild and treat our fields of canes... A proud dictator of his new people will use all means to rebuild his pride, his nation... The family's little brother is good at trading so I'm going to put it to the Foreign Minister, and the pro-capitalist lady who thinks she's discreet, I'm going to put her in the Defense Department like that I'll order her to dump nuclear bombs on s one own country, in order to protect us from the invader... Ah La La, shoot her own "family" what happiness, Caramba, my if...-Ahmed!! Going to run my bath, I smell capitalist mushrooms pushing between my toes, damn "Candida" tints... For the reconstruction of our nation, the execution of this tyrant and the advent of the era of pépito, Viva la corupzion!!!!!! and cleaning!!!! EVIV BULGROZ!! A game of independent strategy, stewardship and physical and psychological travesty to bring your new country to the position it should.
