Description

Political Animals is a political strategy game set in world populated by corrupt crocodiles and meritocratic mice. In a political contest where corruption is always around the corner, fin out whether you can get through a campaign without getting your paws dirty! In this turn-based strategy game you get to decide whether you're going campaign based on the issues or take some short cuts by stuffing some money in the right paws.  Whether you're a retired prizefighting rooster or a pig that sings platitudes to the crowd, there's only one way to find out whether you've got what it takes to win this election!

Political Animals is being developed by a small studio of veteran Filipino game developers whose work ranges from indie hits like Prison Architect and card games by Gameloft like Order and Chaos : Duels.  Find out more about the team here.
