If you've ever dreamed about being the President, you'll soon be able to do exactly that in the upcoming game Suzerain. You will quickly find out that it's not as awesome as you'd expect.

Check out the Suzerain announcement trailer to see some of the terrible choices you'll soon have to make:


The glorious land of Sordland has been led by Colonel Soll for more than twenty years following the conclusion of a terrible civil war. The country did well enough in those times, but the citizens are eager for reform.

In 1954, politician Anton Rayne surprises the nation by ascending to the presidency in a democratic election. Now, it's up to you to lead the country to prosperity.

It won't be easy. There are many difficult decisions ahead! Will you succumb to temptation and jail your political opponents or is it more important for the nation that they are allowed to speak freely? Will you aim for a planned economy or a market economy?


Thankfully, you'll have advisors who will help you along the way. Whether or not you can trust these various ministers, officers, and politicians in your fledgling nation is something that you'll have to decide for yourself.
