Shadow Government. It’s coming, it’s close to my heart and it’s going to be awesome. It’s a reality-based social game for iOS – a “nation builder” if you will. The title has been in the news for a while, but was officially announced this morning, in preparation for preview demos and a fancy public debut at GDC.
Reason #1 you might care: Illuminati is one of the coolest things (or words) ever.
Reason #2 you should care: It uses real government data so game events play out the way they do in the real world. That’s sweeeeet. (With an extra 3 “e”s for good measure.)
Reason #3 you will care: All the cool kids are doing it and you might learn something.
Wait, what’s that you say? You aren’t a reporter but you want to play Shadow Government before anyone else? I have terrific news. The very first preview build will be on display Swiss Game Arcade 2012 during GDC on Tuesday, March 6th at Swissnex. This will be the public debut of Shadow Government, including a presentation on the game’s background and real-world roots from its creators. To get more info and RSVP for the event, go here.
