Update on next version of President Forever 2012

Hi everyone,

Right now, v. 1.1.7 of President Forever 2012 is being worked on. This will include offers between players (including the ability of computer players to leave the election), and an expanded number of veep options for the Republicans side. This is being held up by some subtle bugs, but should be released soon. We’re looking at an official release of 2012 in late August or early September. The game will then continue to be updated until the election. Thanks for your patience!

Release: President Forever 2012 v. 1.1.6

President Forever 2012 Beta v. 1.1.6 has been released. Instead of adding a turn multiplier to speed up the game between primaries and general election, a ‘Fast Forward’ feature has been added instead. Let us know what you think – the obvious advantage is that it is simple, the disadvantage that you lose some control of what happens to the campaign in between. We’re still evaluating this feature.

What we’re working on next:

Offers, including Non-Aggression Pacts, Veep offers, Endorsements between players, and Withdrawals from the campaign (this is useful in particular for primaries). Once this is implemented, you’ll be able to get other candidates out of the election by negotiation, among other things.

Note: computer player AI is not complete. This results in computer players not focusing on the optimal states, and so on.
