The Year Past and the Year Ahead

We had some big milestones in the past year.

1. We released our first cross-platform app, President Infinity, for Mac and Windows. Behind this was a big shift to new core technologies to power the games.

2. We had our first simultaneous Windows-Mac update release, instead of the usual staggering of releases between different OSes.

3. We released Congress Infinity, the sequel to Congress Forever.

4. We have a unified game engine powering President Infinity, Congress Infinity, and (soon) Prime Minister Infinity – U.K. This means new features added to any one game are more easily ported to the others.

5. A lot of work refactoring the code, to clear the way for future enhancements.

For the year ahead, our focus is simple – President Infinity, Congress Infinity, and Prime Minister Infinity – U.K.

Thanks everyone for your feedback over the last year!

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.
