Auroch Digital and Positech Games have announced that they will be releasing the hit-political title Democracy 4: Console Edition on the 5th of June 2024 on Switch.

Democracy 4: Console Edition is a political simulation game where you take on the role of leading one of several countries. In your position, you will be able to choose policies, laws, and take other actions which will positively impact some areas of your country, while having a negative effect on others. The ultimate goal is to win your next election through your actions.

As you begin your political career, you’ll have the option to take charge of one country from a selection of ten. These include USA, UK, Japan, France, Canada, Australia, Spain, Germany, Italy, and South Korea.

From there, you will inherit a pre-elected cabinet, who will have their own biases and opinions from the previous leader. It is then up to you to determine your chosen country’s future.

Introduce new policies, tweak existing bills, react to developing events, and look to gain the momentum in the polls from the public. You’ll have years to create your legacy – will it be one to remember as you get re-elected or one to forget as it ends in disappointment?

As leader, you will be asked to comment on situations which have achieved headline status in the press. Depending on the direction your government has gone in so far, how you deal with these can impact how the public feel you handle unforeseen events and times of crisis.

With you beginning to make your mark on the country you are overseeing, some people will get behind you and others won’t agree with the decisions you have made. This may even be taken to the extremes as you can experience assassination attempts and other challenges throughout your tenure.

If you can make it to the end of your time in office, you will have to lay out a manifesto to show voters what the future will look like for them if you are re-elected. Will these be realistic, or will you offer what you can to try and get the public’s vote if things aren’t going well otherwise?
