Democracy 3: Clones & Drones Press Release

The population of earth is predicted to hit 9 billion in 2040, up from 7 billion today. Climate change threatens the food supply on which those 9 billion will depend. Meanwhile Technological growth threatens to put tens or even hundreds of millions out of work, and an over-use of antibiotics means we may soon see widespread resistance to them and a resurgence of once forgotten diseases. Combine this with a stock market now increasingly controlled by computers, wars increasingly waged by machine and the future looks more uncertain than ever.
Into this chaos steps YOU. As newly elected president, you have these problems in your inbox on day one.

Positech Games announce the release of Democracy 3: Clones & Drones, the expansion for their hit strategy game for the PC. Adding new policies, situations, dilemmas and events to the game to simulate the challenges of the immediate future. Players now need to keep an eye on global food prices, as well as worry about the impacts (good and bad) of industrial automation. Conservatives may have issues with human cloning, Liberals may have an issue with the use of Drone strikes... Ultimately it's up to you to keep the country in one piece, and your re-election chances intact.

What challenges are to come for the politicians of the future? Mass unemployment due to the automation of factories? or will this lead to a leisure society and equality? Will ubiquitous drones lead to better law enforcement and less traffic congestion or to widespread crime and infringement of privacy? Should we give the go-ahead to human cloning? will climate change cause problems for our country? Are we going to run out of rare earth metals? or oil...? The people look to YOU for leadership in these turbulent times. Can you keep the country happy and prosperous as we head to the 2020s and beyond?
