About This Game

Are you ready to enter the cutthroat world of politics? In "Here to Stay," a new indie political strategy game, you'll build your own political party and compete in regional elections to gain control of the government. As the head of state, you'll be responsible for running the country, managing the budget, and making diplomatic decisions.

Step into a fictional Eastern European country in the 1970s and navigate the complex political landscape. This game is more than just a battle of units on a virtual battlefield, it's a battle for power on the political scene. You'll need to consider the economic situation, the ideologies of the population, and the actions of other political parties as you make your way to the top.

"Here to Stay" offers a unique and challenging experience as you manage your party and its members, prepare for various types of elections and political campaigns, and make decisions that will affect the entire country. From hiring party members to managing the state economy, every choice you make will have consequences.

Political party is formed by 4 departments: Internal affairs, Finance, Propaganda and Power. Make sure you balance them well and use full potential of their strength.

Leading the political fight means a lot of bureaucracy. You control the entire party and state with documents and contracts. Sign important documents and overview all important folders and mails.

Member actions
There is a lot to handle when it comes to party members. Make sure they are not unloyal and protect them from being killed or sent to prison.

People in the state perceive the player's political party and its ideology according to the way the player handles individual situations.

Elections are one of the most important events in the state. It is necessary to prepare for the election campaign and choose strong candidates.

The political party with the largest representation in parliament is in charge of the state's economy.

Banks, schools, prisons or media houses. These are important to control. Each of them gives you more actions you can do in the state.

In each city, you will find different buildings with different benefits. However you need to appoint key members in the management of the buildings first.

State laws
The state laws determine the rules and the course of the entire state which everyone, including the player, must follow. Rules are not to be broken, however they are to be changed!

...and much more...
