Politico is a game that has been in the making for almost five years. I look back and I can't believe that i started it when I was 17 and i'm now 22, time sure does fly.

Politico was never supposed to be a commercial game, it started as a tech demo that I used to learn how to build a tile mapping system.

Over the summer of going into college I continued to add to the tech demo, and by the time I entered college I had something pretty cool on my hands.

I continued to work on it throughout college, while trying to stay interested in my computer science courses.

After a year and a half of college I took a break to finish the game, unfortunately I never did.

I was frustrated with the project, the design wasn't coming together, the stats didn't make sense, I was way past my original launch date, I wasn't happy with the graphics, the code was bloated and needed major refactoring, the OUYA was a complete failure, Xbox Live indie games was dying, and most of all I felt completely burnt out.

I decided to pivot and focus on smaller apps and games for mobile, I ran with that choice for over two years, launched over twenty different apps for smartphones with over one million downloads across all apps and platforms.

I used my new resume and portfolio to get my first real job in Philadelphia, I had the pleasure of working with some of the smartest and most talented people I've ever met. That job showed my I could do anything.

Except I never finished the game that I worked so hard on, I've had a nagging feeling ever since I switched focus that I let a lot of people down, myself being the most important one.

But now I'm back.

=======================================================================

Politico is an economic and political simulation game unlike anything you've ever played before. This will be the most in depth simulation game you've ever played, you will have the opportunity to simulate an entire economy with political influence playing a key role.

Balance your Finances, Approval, and Environment to create the most prosperous city you can.

Manage hundreds of different products, all of which will have an effect on your economy. Would you like to build a corporation that produces cars? Sounds good. The price of cars will drop and consumers will be happy, but what effect will this have on your environment? Real Time Traffic and Real Time Environmental Degradation will show you in.... well.... Real Time.
