Compré el juego en la web del desarrollador y me gustaría tenerlo en Steam. Por favor, una traducción al español !!

Looks promising.

Greetings from Monochroma!

You have a promising game out there, I hope it will be greenlit soon and thanks for visiting our booth.

I'd definitely try a civilisation simulator that actually simulates civilisation.

I've played the game a bit now and it's hard to recommend at this stage. In a nutshell, the mechanics that govern gameplay hove no real, in-game, relationship to the larger critique that the name and description imply, and which make the game so potentially intriguing. Adding additional complexity to the game as of this date 2-21-2014 might be a course to improve, but at the moment it doesn't yet have any of the special touches I was hoping for.

Cmon, greenlight this thing already;-)
T0AST Feb 2 @ 12:46am 
Saw on kickstarter couldn't back at the time great that it is on greenlight. Good luck

looks like fun
dereknor Jan 21 @ 9:47am 
haha, just like it because the world is shown in its real proportion and upside down ;) Everything is relativ, and the world could also be mapped this way
Talk3008n1-09 Jan 17 @ 3:50pm 
This might sound really dumb but why is the map upside down? I dont really get it :o

@Verratus: Consider playing the demo!
@disco_syphilis: Thanks!
@DarthCalvert: I've never played either, but I've had the sense that Neocolonialism is similar to Democracy only insofar as they are both serious strategy games.
DarthCalvert Jan 8 @ 8:29am 
Looks a lot like a redress of the 2005 game Democracy, which itself was an upgrade of the 1993 game Shadow President.

See if I can rule the world

Looks really interesting. One review mentioned settlers of catan, but I think the War on Terror board game looks closer. I love strategy games, but all too often they are glorifications of being a mad imperialist b******. Contempory, thoughtful strategy, look forward to it coming to Steam.

Verratus: Bothered? Creator Bothered? Boy are you petulant. The difference between fmc and corporatism wouldn't have been an enthralling game play element, couldn't be implemented, or implimented in time, lack of money etc. You assume way too much, child.
[YG] Henter Jan 3 @ 1:04pm 
Ah ha! Well, could be a good edition to the list!

australia on top of the world - lol
Verratus Jan 1 @ 3:00pm 
It would be nice if the creator bothered to make a distinction between free market capitalism and corporatism. It's a big turn off to those of us who know the difference. It's really too bad, there's definitely a market for this type of game.

Please, spanish in the game. Congratulation from Spain for a left political game.
Th3^Jack^Frost™ Dec 23, 2013 @ 8:36pm 
so far so gud...it looks like a real reality game...gotta try atleast once
raixel Dec 16, 2013 @ 10:24pm 
For some reason the upside-down map seems really sinister to me based on the game's concept. Like it creeps me out. Not sure why, but it does.
Hackey McNoobster™ Dec 16, 2013 @ 7:04pm 
Good to know. And i always thought it was the Top O' The World !!

@Hackey Antarctica is a myth.
Hackey McNoobster™ Dec 14, 2013 @ 4:40am 
Looks awesome, love the map, but where's Antarctica??
Mickmane Dec 10, 2013 @ 2:02pm 
I don't see any indication of what you actually do in the game, as in how you do what the description says.
raixel Dec 7, 2013 @ 11:36pm 
Holy crap, this isnt a virtual reality simulation, its a real reality simulation!
sampedestal  [author] Dec 1, 2013 @ 9:02am 
@clear I'm glad you liked it! I intend for the keys to be redeemable on Steam.
clear Dec 1, 2013 @ 5:00am 
I recently purchased this on amazon. If this is greenlighted, will I be able to get a steam code for the game? Thanks. Also, I pretty much purchased this when it was described as a "marxist strategy game". Like, I didn't even know I wanted this.
zajog Nov 17, 2013 @ 4:48am 
I love turn-based strategy games and so few do intrigue. So this looks right up my street. Good luck!

You had me at; "The map is upside down".
tokisto Nov 11, 2013 @ 8:33am 
Is there any possibility that your game come to GOG.com?
sampedestal  [author] Nov 10, 2013 @ 8:47pm 
@tokisto With this government, *every* time is the right time...
@LogicalDash This is VERY FRUSTRATING because Amazon will not tell me how to re-upload the patched version! But it *is* fixed and I am doing what I can to contact them...
LogicalDash Nov 9, 2013 @ 10:23am 
FYI, the Amazon version is busted. Buy it from Subaltern's site if you want it.
tokisto Nov 7, 2013 @ 10:38am 
Looks very interesting, and it came out with all the fuss about government espionage, at right time!

It's exactly the sort of thing, you would expect the templars to do in Assassins Creed. I love the map being upside down, as it's all about perspective.
smegs Oct 1, 2013 @ 9:18pm 
@sampedestal, pt. 2

Amazon's Digital Games Marketing Manager, Tony, will promise on every forum around that Amazon will give the customer an extra copy or other compensation if the game fails to activate down the road, but there's zero promise of this in any official policy of Amazon.

Besides the Steam key issue, I'm very excited about this title; I like strategy games and political satire. I've also been looking at different games with potential social/political/philosophical/industry commentary for a paper topic (I'm a grad student studying philosophy in literature / culture studies).
smegs Oct 1, 2013 @ 9:17pm 
@sampedestal My aversion to the Amazon direct download is that games on that platform can have any DRM system, and with my game backlog I may not get to the game before the third-party DRM system goes offline. Also, being that Amazon is not a game-focused company, their future download availability seems more suspect. With Steam, I have Valve to put pressure on game publishers/developers to make sure games on Steam actually work, as it becomes their reputation as a gaming platform that will be in jeopardy.

On your Amazon listing, I just now noticed that it says DRM-Free at the top, which at least gives me some comfort; I'm glad to see your political awareness reflected in not following anti-consumer practices. A one-time key to install/run isn't awful, but are there limits on activations and what about ten years from now?
sampedestal  [author] Oct 1, 2013 @ 4:08pm 
@Blackdeath I like this idea a lot and if I can do it I will.

@smegs There is an error on the Amazon site that I am looking into--you need an access key, but it is not for Steam. The game without the access key will be freely downloadable but more or less unplayable. I'm not sure what the distinction is otherwise, though, but I'm curious: given that one can add arbitrary games to a local Steam library, and that Neocolonialism will be available on Amazon long before it is hypothetically Greenlit, why is a Steam key better than just any key? (Understanding this may help me better clarify things in the future.)
smegs Oct 1, 2013 @ 9:10am 
I pre-ordered this game on Amazon because it lists it as an "Online Game Code" and in the Description it says "Steam account required for game activation and installation". Looking at the dev's response to Blackdeath, however, it seems like we will not get Steam keys. If I won't get a Steam key, then I'm canceling my pre-order.
Johnny Sep 24, 2013 @ 4:51pm 
Absolutely genius, I love it.
Blackdeath Sep 23, 2013 @ 2:52pm 
Correct i was wondering if it makes it onto steam those of us that purchased it elsewhere will be granted a steam key as some devs do?
