Prime Minister Infinity – U.K. is coming!

Prime Minister Infinity UK

Prime Minister Infinity – U.K. is coming for Windows (7, 8, 8.1) and Mac (OS X 10.8.5 and above).

It will feature the latest game engine, new user-interface, a Campaign Editor, and – of course – the 2015 campaign.

The pre-order link will be open for the first 200 people,  here.

Pre-orderers will receive the game on January 30th, 2015 (and then all subsequent updates), be able to get a sneak peak at how it will play, and be able to give 270soft feedback before wider release that can shape the way the game plays.

Pre-orderers are also eligible to get the game at a discount, at £9.95 (instead of £14.95) or $14.95 US (instead of $19.95 US).

Q & A.

Q. Why are you limiting the pre-orders to 200?

A. Having too many people to start testing a game in its early test releases can cause too much feedback. The initial pre-ordering will be for the January 30th release. We will then open up pre-ordering again with a later release date if there’s more demand.

What’s Romney doing?

The reporter linked to in this recent article on Republican contenders dismissed ideas of him running.

So here’s an open question – if Romney isn’t preparing for a possible third bid with his extensive campaigning on behalf of Republicans, appearances on news shows, press releases about Hillary Clinton, and so on, then what’s he doing?

Romney poll numbers

Now that Romney is added to 2016, I’m fine-tuning his starting %s. If anyone has links to recent polls (primaries or general) that include Romney, feel free to post them here.
