Democracy 3 beta lets you start enacting the policies you’ve been shouting at politicians for years


Democracy 3 is out now; here’s our Democracy 3 review.

I’ve been shouting advice at politicians from the sidelines (read: in front of my television) for years. Democracy 3 lets me put my policies where my mouth is and see if I can do a better job of running the country.

Of course, you can do this, too. I just worry you might opt for privatising the army or going in for another round of quantitative easing.

The game’s not out yet but you can get started right away by playing the beta.

“You can pre-order from my site now, and you get access to the beta immediately,” writes developer Cliff Harris. “This is, I hope, A pretty polished beta. It’s feature complete, it’s nice and shiny. It’s optimised. there may be bugs or balance issues, but I’m aware of none for the PC version, and only 2 or 3 minor visual anomalies in the mac & linux builds.”

The game’s running on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Buyers will also get a Steam key when the game is released. We still don’t know when that will be, mind.
