President Infinity v. Ericson – 2.2.1 for Windows and Mac has been released!
If you are a President Infinity owner, you are eligible for this upgrade.
Highlights: over 40 scripted events in 2016 (real-world events that have occurred, and that can change issue profiles, player momenta, and more), bug fixes, scripted events editing, and more 2016 updates.
Note: for Macs, there appears to be a bug loading save games from the Start Screen. Workaround: start a new game, then go to Options > Load Game.
