President Forever 2016 – What’s coming in the next few months

For the next few months, the focus will be on President Forever 2016 for Windows.

A few things that I’ll be focusing on:

  • Fixing remaining bugs
  • Adding Favorability Scores, which will replace the current electorate system and allow for more realistic primaries modeling
  • Continuing to add to the 2016 scenario
  • Expanding the number of scenarios, including finalizing the 1912 scenario (provisionally, my goal is to have all scenarios from 1912-2016 – we’ll see)
  • Allowing for expedited gameplay during the primaries (it drags a bit, especially once the primary contest is locked up)
  • Continuing to enhance gameplay, the user-interface, and help
  • Expanding the candidate editing tool

Have a great new year everyone! Looking forward to making President Forever 2016 the best election game ever.
