Simulation or strategy? describe my game!

Like most small-game developers, I spend some time getting listings for Democracy on sites like ‘’ (you have to pay for that one though).
One of the decisions you have to make when you submit a game to these sites is what ‘genre’ it falls into.
I never know whether to pick Simulation games, or strategy games. If its possible, I pick both, but often it’s not. If you had to pick one or the other, what category would YOU put democracy in?

I guess it’s more simulation than strategy…

Simulation :wink:


I think it’s just on the strategy side of things.

Marsoe, it’s clearly simulategy!
