Loyalty is Everything

Republia Times

Check out this awesome mini-game by Lucas Pope, a game designer who made The Republia Times as a “warmup”  for Ludum Dare. For a warmup, sir, this is some very decent material!

You play the editor of a newspaper in a recently “stabilized” dictatorship, er, glorious republic. With the articles provided, you have to pick the ones most likely to positively sway public opinion of the “glorious leader”, while at the same time increasing readership. Oh, and don’t worry about your family, the government is taking good care of them…

ProTip: Really hang in there as long as you can to see everything of the game 😉
