Cliff Harris of Gratuitous Space Battle [$9.99 (HD)] is bringing Democracy 3 to the iPad per a recent post on the Positech blog. In this simulation game, you are the leader of a country and you’re faced with all the challenges that you can imagine. For those unfamiliar with the series it might seem a bit hard to understand at first because you’re not doing it from a 3D viewpoint. Instead, you look at charts, numbers and texts to better understand the consequences of your action and react accordingly. It’s been quite successful on PC and Democracy 3 was released late last year to glowing reviews.
Here’s a trailer from the PC version to better illustrate:
This type of interface is, of course, quite fitting to the iPad and even though Cliffski isn’t quite happy with the sales of Gratuitous Space Battles (a game that we loved ), he wants to release it to the iPad in the hope that those looking for a hardcore strategy game will be pleased. I’m curious to see how a niche game like Democracy 3 will be received by our community but for now you can talk about it here.
