Democracy 4, as you might imagine from the name alone, is a political simulator and strategy game about running a country... or rather, desperately trying to run a country while everything collapses around you! In order to bring your vision of the future to life you'll need to carefully handle an assortment of complicated topics, work on passing unpopular laws without losing too much support from your voters, wrangle with the ever-annoying opposition, and most importantly, do whatever you can to stay in power or else it will all go to waste!

How all of this madness translates into actual gameplay, that you can find out through the freshly posted launch trailer. Have a peek, it's a fairly short one:

I haven't played it myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but from what I can read online it seems like Democracy 4 doesn't shake up the formula all too much and mostly serves as a bigger and better version of its predecessor. So if you've enjoyed the series so far, odds are Democracy 4 will also be up your ally. Similarly, if you've tried some of the previous games and simply bounced off them, it's unlikely Democracy 4 will do much to change your mind.

Whatever your thoughts on the series may be, you can learn more about Democracy 4, as well as check out some player reviews, over at Steam. Have fun ruining the world!
