Take on the role of a campaign manager in the 2004 election. It's Bush vs. Kerry in this new strategy game. Take out ads, give speeches, hire operatives, and spin the media.
The Political Machine is a strategy game in which players must put all their political knowledge to the test as they campaign around the country in an effort to garner enough voters to win on Election Day. The game makes heavy use of real-world demographic information to provide a realistic playing field, and it models contemporary issues, such as the war on terror, the economy, and policy in Iraq. Players take out political ads, build campaign headquarters, make speeches, go on cable TV shows, and even deal with spin doctors, scandalmongers, and smear merchants. Players can create their own candidates from scratch or make use of historical candidates from Bill Clinton to Abraham Lincoln.
