This Is The President: A Corrupt US President Simulator!? [VIDEO]

SuperPAC and THQ Nordic are setting the United States on an interesting alternate history after the 2020 presidential election in This is the President…

 

The story begins shortly after the election, with the goal being to enact the 28th Amendment to the US Constitution. It would turn the United States of America into a banana republic because if this Amendment were passed, the elected President would have immunity from prosecution for the rest of his life. However, it will not be easy because our dark past as a multimillionaire businessman before we took office will come to light, which could lead to us being handcuffed.

Here’s the game’s overview from Steam: “This Is the President is a story-driven management game. In the year 2020, you are elected to be the President of the United States of America. To escape justice for your past crimes as a shady multimillionaire businessman, you need to ratify Amendment 28, which would grant lifetime immunity to the President. Manage your official and unofficial staff like a real mafioso to deal with all the old problems you’ve had in the past, as well as the shiny new problems that come with the office. You’ll battle with your competitors, the establishment, the media and even foreign leaders.

In this political thriller-satire mix, the player’s actions will inescapably lead to situations that escalate into absurd, terrifying, tragic and even ridiculous problems. There’s only one way out. Change the fabric of the Constitution of the United States by persuading, blackmailing, bribing, and bullying a large part of the political system into granting you lifelong immunity. Manage your approval rating, cash and crew unlike any US President before – stay on top of your presidency by any means necessary.

Hold speeches, draft executive orders, manage daily crises, hold press conferences, and tweet better than any President before. Hire a team of assassins, hackers, lobbyists, and other specialists. Send them on dangerous missions that can be solved by legal means. If that doesn’t work, send them on dangerous missions that can be solved by illegal means. Experience a compelling interactive narrative with a wide variety of choices and story branches. Will you end your term on your terms, or are you just a pawn in a bigger game? Rule the country as an actual mobster would with a shadow cabinet that is feared and respected on a global scale,” SuperPAC and THQ Nordic wrote.

This is the President will launch on December 6 on PC. We wonder who they refer to
