Ancaster, Canada – BattleGoat Studios has answered the call to make available new DLC, TRUMP RISING, for its Geopolitical Game Supreme Ruler Ultimate.  Commented Lead Designer, David Thompson, “It is with incredible anguish that we feel obligated to provide our players with a new option to our game.  We have prided ourselves with our games’ realistic approach to the world but absolutely nothing prepared us for this…”  Lead Programmer, George Geczy added, “”Our games have  always excelled at creating a real world simulation with a chaotic future storyline.  Now the chaos can feel even more real!”

Availability: Supreme Ruler Trump Rising (FREE DLC for Supreme Ruler Ultimate) will be available for download from Steam on Tuesday July 26th.

“Make America Great Again!”

At first he was dismissed as comic relief and a game show host in a country whose election cycles were long, arduous, and boring.  With his bombastic style, he brought entertainment to a process that had long since lost its lustre to a jaded population.  However, as the election progressed from Party Primaries to National Conventions and into the General Election, the international community started to take notice, and in some cases, make plans.

“I, Donald J. Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

And with those words, the world changed…

Within the United States, civil unrest fueled by racial tensions reaches even higher than in the 1960’s.  To China and Russia, the new US President seems so unpredictable and reckless that it seems logical to make a pre-emptive strike rather than wait for him to have a ‘bad hair day’ and launch a strike against them.  In Western Europe, leaders are shaken by their new reality and realize they may have to make concessions to Russia now that America can no longer be relied upon.  In Mexico, and even in Canada, militaries are brought to an unprecedented level of readiness over concern of Trump’s ambitions.

How will this play out?  Will you assume Trump’s role as the new US leader and guide America to renewed Greatness?  Or will you instead lead another nation and take advantage of a potentially dysfunctional America to further your own ambition?  Supreme Ruler Ultimate: Trump Rising will allow you to take control of a nation in 2020 as the world is engulfed in chaos, or start on inauguration day in January 2017 as Donald Trump takes control of the most powerful nation on earth.  Manage economic, diplomatic, and military policies, take on ISIS and North Korea, defend the South China Sea, or just build a wall instead.

Fun Fact
After President Obama’s inauguration in January 2009, IGN named Supreme Ruler the #1 game on their list of computer games the new President should play to help learn his job.

  1. Un sujet certainement plus consensuel, trendy et moins touchy, que d’aborder la crise émergente en Mer de Chine. Pas sûr qu’adopter une telle posture pour un jeu vidéo soit très judicieux de la part de Battlegoat. Dommage car le potentiel géopolitique et ludique en aurait été certainement plus important.

  2. Tout à fait exact, la crise émergente en Mer de Chine est un vrai sujet géopolitique aux répercussions mondiales … qui pourrait faire l’objet d’une simulation. Une des options pourraient être la disparition de la flotte américaine stationnée dans le secteur … que Trump pourrait envisager de monnayer avec ses “alliés”

    • Si on est accroc aux jeux de gestion d’empire, style 4X à la Hearts of iron, ça reste l’un des ténors du genre. Techniquement, c’est différent des jeux Paradox, avec des mécanismes vraiment autres. Fondamentalement on reste dans le gestion pointue d’une nation à l’échelon mondial, avec des interactions économiques plus intéressantes que dans le dernier HoI 4. Diplomatiquement c’est aussi plus intéressant, selon moi, avec un rendu plus réaliste des interactions entre le monde économique et politique. En revanche, ça se gâte en termes de graphismes et surtout, de modélisation des conflits. Avec Supreme Ruler l’échelle de jeu est plus confuse ; avec parfois la sensation de jouer à un RTS d’ancienne génération, plutôt qu’à une simulation dans la même échelle que pour le reste du jeu. C’est plaisant pour certains et ça l’est souvent pour moi mais sincèrement, le niveau de finition visuelle n’est pas suffisant pour entretenir l’intérêt. Pour résumer, si on est fan de ce genre, c’est un jeu incontournable qu’il convient d’essayer. La courbe d’apprentissage est cependant assez raide malgré de gros efforts consentis en termes de didacticiel. Le manuel est d’une qualité inférieure à celle entretenue par Paradox et ça se ressent. Restent les forums, si on a le courage et le temps nécessaire.
