A Satirical Gem

This game is amazing, and I use that word literally. I was amazed about what it accomplished; the developer's goal of provoking thought about politics. It's not just bashing Democrats or vilifying Republicans. It's doing both. Regardless of your opinions, playing this game makes you feel like every decision is the wrong one.

For example, the game gave me the offer to gerrymander, which would increase everyone's views on my office. However, you can also reject the offer, giving you a boost for the justice system. I knew that gerrymandering sounded too good to be true, so didn't decide on it. I lost that game, and part of me wonders if I could have totally changed the outcome from that one decision. That's the beauty of DSS.

From the wonderfully designed characters and dialogue, to the immense amount of replay potential, I'm amazed that this game is free. My only negative thought is that the game isn't at the scale it deserves. I'm waiting eagerly to see what's in store for the next project.

Top notch political simulation

As a fellow Leftist, I deeply enjoy this game. Sure, it is focused on a very improbable reality, but a fantasy can still blossom a sense of pride for most. Unfortunately, what is applied here is considered “radical” in our American political climate when it should be fundamental, but I won’t dive into that element deeply for the sake of brevity. I do, on the other hand, think that some improvement can be made. Firstly, I would pay to see what it would be like to get to play for longer than two terms. We can’t just let FDR be the only one, right? Another thing, I think that the music could be a bit more original. I love it and I totally get it, the music has a background, it fits to the theme, but I think something new can get our minds off the past and on to a better future. A future of reform. But, otherwise, it’s a nice use of the chorus of “Solidarity Forever” and the tune to “The Internationale”. Overall, it the best-ish game of its type (up next to Reigns).

Limited, but still Fun

I’m not at all a socialist, but I found this game very amusing. I hope the developers will make it more challenging and in depth. As a side note, I would like it if they provided access to background information on topics presented in the game. Sometimes I’ll read a question and not really know what the policy means, and the game's context isn’t enough to figure it out.

This game is also a very fun game to play with friends, especially when you play with fiscal conservatives who are forced to socialize the means of production when they run a surplus. I still want more detail, and I’d like some sort of achievement system. Another suggestion that’s kind of out there is a “feral mode” where you can go rogue during your second term and actually destroy the billionaire class, or something to that effect.
