Congress Forever 2014 – Latest Info

Hi everyone,

Congress Forever 2014 is currently our top priority. It has taken longer to release than anticipated because of the long period of time the Mac version of President Infinity took.

Congress Forever 2014 will be available for both Windows and Mac. Initially, it will contain the 2014 Senate and House campaigns. Additional historical campaigns will then be added after that.

When further info is available (such as initial release dates) it will be posted on the blog.

Thanks everyone for your interest and patience on this!
