New PC Game Commander in Chief Launches on Inauguration Day; Players
Become President Obama
Geo-Political Game Lets Players Make Critical Decisions Starting Tomorrow,
Just Like President Obama
Parkville, MD - January 19, 2009 - Commander in Chief, a PC game that
puts players in President Obama’s shoes, launches tomorrow, Inauguration Day.
Just like the President, players immediately face the same problems and
challenges as in the real world – the economy, controlling the military,
national security and terrorism, natural disasters, alternative energy sources,
and many others – all with the persistent threat of a terrorist attack on a
major U.S. city.
A game trailer can be seen at
http://www.commander-in-chief.net. The game can be played alone, or,
with an Internet connection up to 16 friends.
Commander in Chief is played on a detailed 3D world map on a screen similar to
cable news programs – multiple windows, scrolling tickers, and on-screen video
inserts. To make the geo-political simulation as close to “real world” as
possible, each of the 192 countries in Commander in Chief has current data on
400 key factors provided by 50 international organizations including the United
Nations, G7, NATO, NAFTA, OPEC, and many other respected sources.
The game has generated national television coverage, print coverage including
The New York Times, and has been featured on political Internet sites. Media
interest outside the U.S. has been extensive, reaching major publications in
Europe, Australia, Singapore, and throughout Asia.
Think you can do better than President Obama on issues such as unemployment, the
environment, social security, or foreign relations? Here’s your chance!
Commander in Chief will be available at retail stores nationwide and online at
Amazon.com starting on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.
Commander in Chief was developed by Eversim, published by IGS (Interactive
Gaming Software based in Maryland), and distributed in North America by Atari
