  1. May 2015 elections in the UK will be most interesting and important for many generations. Glad we now have the game to go with it 🙂

  2. I may get the game when it is fine-tuned. I don’t know enough about UK politics to provide much feedback. Although, the game will be a good way to learn about things, I think, when I am ready to get it.

  3. So we will finally be able to view raw vote totals in individual constituencies, rather than just the percentages, right? Cool! Also what other scenarios will be included? Actually 2015 will probably be more playable than any historical scenario, given the uncertain prospects of the main parties, the rise of UKIP, the apparent surge of the SNP and the Greens looking set to make headway (at least in the popular vote).

  4. @Spring,

    Yes, you will be able to view actual vote totals by constituency in Prime Minister Infinity.

    @Erik,

    Work continues on President Infinity, including work with the latest release on features that will lead to a 7 day per turn feature.

  5. As they say “shut up and take my money”.

    This is great, been waiting impatiently for ages.

    As an enthusiast for politics in Britain I hope that I will be able to contribute valuable information to one of my favourite games.

  6. Will this game have Command Strength, Fundraising Strength and so on? I ask because the last British game didn’t.

  7. @SANC,

    Yes, Prime Minister Infinity will have Command Strength, Fundraising Strength, and so on.

    @DS,

    You won’t be able to directly port them, but there will be a Campaign Editor which will allow you to enter whatever information when creating a new campaign in a simple way.

  8. Given that the UK has only one timezone the polls close at 10PM throughout the entire nation. Is that how it will happen in the game? Or will (for instance) the North East of England (in which many seats declare early) have their polls close first in order to simulate the effect?

  9. Good idea.

    Oh, will alternative leaders be available? This was one complaint I had with the old version – that the scenarios had, at most two or three alternative leaders for each of the major parties. The Canada 2004/2006/2008 scenarios (at least on the 2008 version) had more like 7 or 8.

    If so, then these would be my suggestions:

    Conservatives – George Osborne, Boris Johnson, Theresa May, William Hague, Michael Gove, Phillip Hammond

    Labour – Ed Balls, Yvette Cooper, David Miliband, Alan Johnson, Andy Burnham, Chuka Umunna

    Liberal Democrats – Tim Farron, Vince Cable, Danny Alexander, Ed Davey, Chris Huhne

    UKIP – Paul Nuttall, Douglas Carswell, Mark Reckless, Diane James

    Greens – Caroline Lucas

    SNP – Alex Salmond, John Swinney

    Don’t know enough about Plaid Cymru, the Northern Ireland parties or the other minor parties to make suggestions for those.

  10. @Spring – Suzanne Evans is a popular UKIP leader possibility, more so than Diane James I would say, she should definitely be included in my opinion

  11. Will you be able to edit the candidates in different constituencies or will they be fixed because I found it odd that you could create a candidate and run to be the PM without being an actual MP?

  12. @Joseph- If you go into the files for P4E there’s a file called “scenario.p4e”- open it with notepad, ctrl+f for a constituency you want and then edit the candidate name for a party 🙂

    @Spring- more suggestions for the Greens would be Will Duckworth, fmr deputy leader, Amelia Womack, Shahrar Ali, Jenny Jones, Pippa Bartolotti, Jean Lambert MEP, Molly Scott Cato MEP and Keith Taylor MEP. You could also add in Patrick Harvie MSP and Allison Johnson MSP, and Maggie Chapman, all from the Scottish Green Party.

    That’s a point- will the Scottish Greens be playable separately? I hope so. It would be good to include the Scottish Socialists as well, seeing as they’ve had MSPs before and have a reasonable membership.

  13. @Spring,

    Yes, alternative leaders will be available in the 2015 campaign. Thank you for this feedback.

  14. @Mr. Awesome,

    The game will be released initially (to those who pre-order before the limit is reached) on Jan. 30th. I’ll announce if or when that limit is reached.

  15. As someone who will be on the ground (in a literal and figurative sense) would you like me to help with the background to this game by sending you the actual polls throughout 2015?

  16. Hi – Just to clarify, if i pre-order with i receive an early version of the game today? Or will I have to wait until the end of the month?

    Thanks

  17. @John G,

    If you order now, you will receive the first version of the game on Jan. 30th. Hope this helps.

  18. @Harry,

    Thank you for this, and yes – we’ll be looking at public polling, but if you see us missing something, by all means let me know.

  19. I’m very, very, very excited for this latest version of the game! You guys do great work and make a quality product.

    I was wondering if, given the likelihood of a hung parliament, you’d given any thought to including a coalition forming option in PMI, sort of like in Chancellor Forever. You know, instead of “No one has a majority–the Queen must decide,” etc. you could use command points or something to try to tempt one of the smaller parties into forming a government with you.

  20. @Jared,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    It’s a good question, given most predictions are of a hung parliament. The idea is noted – currently, you would have to create a coalition during the campaign. We’ll see.

  21. Hi there,

    The pre-order date hasn’t been delayed. People who already pre-ordered will receive the initial release on January 30th. Those who are pre-ordering from now on will receive it a bit later, on Feb. 15th.

    As noted in the original post, we were limiting the number of people for the initial release, because too many people actually can cause too much feedback in the early stages of things. Hope this clarifies things.

  22. I have pre ordered long before in December, is my order coming on the feb 15? i have actually received an email for the 30/1/15 release info… btw, i’m from Singapore.

  23. @JL,

    If you pre-ordered in Dec., you will be receiving the initial release today. The Feb. 15th date is for new pre-orders only.

  24. Just played the game, its great!!! I do think though that UKIP needs some revamps particularly their platform which is left wing in game but Centre/centre right/right wing in reality.
    i also think you should put in an European Union policy as this will feature heavily in the next general election, corruption should be taken out as well because that problem never features in the UK election.

    Great game so far!!!

  25. Great job, guys. Very enjoyable game. I do have a suggestion, though.

    I played the game on “hard” just now–as Labour–and still won a majority of 80. The Lib Dems were completely wiped out. The SNP only got 7 seats. These are all very unlikely outcomes in real life, based on current polling. So, maybe tinker with whatever algorithm controls the range of possible popular vote and seat distribution for each party? I mean, I’m pretty awesome at this game, but there’s no way Ed will win 365 seats! 😉

  26. Are there any plans for a Linux version of this? I would love to play it, but the inconvenience of having to go through an emulator is putting me off it for the time being.

  27. Labour
    Devolution – Centre – Centre left
    NHS- Centre right – Centre Left
    Post office- Centre right – Centre Left

  28. The link to purchase the game comes up on my computer as web address not found. any suggestions or is there another way I can purchase it?

  29. Got the game, but there is a weird glitch were there’s dots of random colours around all additional tabs (eg. when i open the endorsers tab this happens)

  30. Can you confirm that? On my Windows 10, I type in the search bar at the bottom of my screen ‘version’ and press enter. Then it brings up a screen that should various system information including the operating system version.
