The mobile game development company ‘Light Beats LLC’ is bringing out the beta for their upcoming apolitical presidential election game. Starting from July 14st through till the 21st and with a release expected in September 2020.
Campaign Trail is a “presidential game for everybody” focusing on the strategy and management of a presidential campaign to become the President of the United States. This game is perfect for those looking for a political game or those who are simply fans of politics, or even those who wish to helm the country for themselves.
You begin by selecting your home state, name and campaign archetype. Once you start on your campaign trail, you must begin to boost your support. This can be done through the campaign menu, whereby utilizing campaign points, increasing your abilities or purchasing rallies and advertisements.
Throughout the gameplay, your goal as a candidate is to be desirable in either rural or urban states. Your traits will play a crucial role in determining the speed of the growth in supporters. This, in turn, would aid your movement to a different state in any given turn.
If you are low on funds or support you can opt for a shadier route by taking to the corruption screen. Just as in the real world, corruption plays a big role within the game. As a candidate, you’ll have the ability to commit campaign frauds, bribe your way into new states, suppress opposing voters and lie to your own supporters. Each of the aforementioned mechanics also come with discrete effects, that may prove detrimental while helping you get closer to the oval office.
The progression system in Campaign Trails comes in the form of challenges that a player must complete during play-throughs. After completing enough challenges, the player will be able to unlock new archetypes with different abilities and traits, requiring different strategies to reach the White House.
