Video game developers save global economy, Usher in age of politician gamers
The world is facing a recession, instability in the middle east, the continued threat of runaway climate change, peak-oil, overpopulation and the ongoing war on terror. Clearly, such drastic times cause for drastic solutions. Clearly the solution is computer games.
UK PC developer Positech Games have identified the cause of most political failures in the modern world - Inexperience. Politicians are clearly unqualified for the job. There are no ‘practice’ countries for would-be presidents to try out their policies on. Or are there?
In a selfless bid to solve the worlds political problems, UK game developer Positech Games are giving away free copies of their ‘government simulation’ game ‘Democracy 2’ to every elected politician on Earth.
The world has had a long, and disastrous flirtation with inexperienced politicians flailing around with control of the economy like gamers fumbling through a pre-game tutorial. The world needs experienced political strategists, people who have solved the debt problems of the fictional country of Malaganga, and calmed the religious tensions of Biblonia. The age of amateurs is over,
This is an open invitation for any elected politician, anywhere in the world to contact Positech Games for their free copy of this political strategy game. Full details on how to apply can be found at positech.co.uk/democracy2/politicians.html
Positech will happily keep the identities of the politicians a secret on request, but this is also an opportunity for statesmen and women to admit to the ever-growing and widening games playing demographic that they too enjoy playing games.
The age of amateurs is over. Bring on the age of the gaming politicians.
