On my way to the office or generally when on a train or plane, I usually write a bit of code when I can. Creating 3D stuff isn't possible usually, so I write tools, or once, I even wrote a book (named Die Wiederentdeckung der Erde).
Last year, because I was frustrated with the absurd assertions of our local politicians, I programmed the simulation of a state. So that I could for example change the VAT tax rate of Austria, and see what would happen then. It turned out to be quite fun, so I added a user interface to it, and extended it a bit. The result is the Government Simulator:
A simple economic and political simulation game. I will polish it up a bit and release it soon. Here is another shot:
Do you know the "Kill All The Poor" sketch by Mitchell and Webb? This one here:
I wanted to create a simulation just like that. Sounded like fun. There are a lot of features already in that game, and although I haven't written a "Kill all the poor" option, it would be possible. Not sure if I should though.
Anyway, if you think this is a good idea, subscribe to the newsletter of that game to get a mail once it is finished, or tell me in the comments of what you think, or what you would like to have in a game like this. Any feedback is welcome!
