Rogue State Update 1.36

And here comes another update for Rogue State, which rebalances some parts of the gameplay. Most importantly, the effects of taxes have been revised. Setting the taxes very high or very low now has more consequences than before. In addition to that we fixed a number of small bugs in the treasury calculations and policy effects, and a few minor graphical glitches have been fixed too.

Thanks for all your feedback! It's been 10 months since we have released this game, and it's been quite a journey. Thanks to your comments and suggestions the game has grown considerably bigger, better and more enjoyable.

“I highly, highly recommend Rogue State to all fans of Civ and anyone looking for a real challenge.”

“The game is one of the best for replay value I’ve ever seen in a plot focused game.”
Brash Games

“Rogue State is a surprisingly good game that came out of nowhere. I had no idea that being a dictator... ahem... president in a democratic country is so fun and yet so difficult.”

About This Game

You led the revolution that freed the People's Republic of Basenji from the shackles of a corrupt monarchy. But now the new regime will be tested. You are the Glorious Leader who must hold onto power by maintaining the delicate balance between the interests of fundamentalists, capitalists, patriots, and liberals. However be aware, your brother, Farouk, consolidates power and influence with the intention to overthrow you! How will you manage affairs with your neighboring countries while ensuring you don't attract too much negative attention from the Americans? Will you be a generous donor to the United Nations? Or an international pariah building nuclear weapons in secret? The choice is yours in Rogue State.

Features

  • A world of possibilities! Over thirty possible state purchases, six clandestine projects, eight potential neighbors and hundreds of randomly generated events. No two games will ever be the same and the approaches you take in one game may not necessarily be successful in another.
  • Manage complex relationships that are more nuanced than war and peace. Forging unlikely alliances may just keep Basenji from the kinds of wars your leadership can't survive. Other leaders have distinct personalities that may inform your tactics.
  • Choose cabinet leaders to help manage your country. Maintain their favor by accomplishing relevant objectives.
  • Forge alliances, develop tourism, promote trade. Invade countries, assassinate your rivals, nuke the planet.
  • Beautiful comic imagery inspired by French comic artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud.
  • Thousands of lines of spoken dialogue, and the ability to play as either a male or female Head of State.
  • Be the dictator you need to be. Tackle problems with the level of freedom or oppression you desire.
