What this game does so well is bringing out people's true selves. I never even thought about the fact that I could possibly be a brutal Muslim dictator, but this game showed me my true calling. Allahu Ahkbar!

This game is all about watching one color get bigger than other colors. The color also a name attached to it, which you can watch get bigger as well. Some colors are stronger, other colors are more financially savvy, and other colors are better at conducting genocide. If this sounds like the sort of thing that sways your cardinal, than get it!

Sadly due to the rapidly globalized economy and world we live in, exploiting indigenous populations is not nearly as easy nor profitable as it used to be. But thanks to the fine people at Paradox Interactive, I can unleash the inner beast that resides within all white European christians and do my part for humanity. Once I get bored from ousting the filthy Turkomans from Constantinople (not giving it back to Byzantium because ♥♥♥♥ orthodoxy Pope #1 forever get rekt bearded priests) I can turn my furious and just gaze across the atlantic and kill lots of savages (not my fault those filthy natives were living on Burgundian Florida). Soon the whole world will be swathed in burgundian colors, or all thats actually worth ruling (not ruling africa because africa and lots of zulu rebellions plus mosquitos).

This game is best played with a warm cup of Folger's coffee in your hands, so you can actually smell the oppression while you relive the greatest period of time of all time. The period when white people discovered the world, and decided they didnt like it.
