Tri Synergy To Publish Democracy!

Do YOU have what it takes to run a country?

For Immediate Release

Sharon, MA, September 28th, 2007– Tri Synergy, Inc. ( www.trisynergy.com) and ZeroG Games ( www.zeroggames.com) are proud to announce that they have reached an agreement for Tri Synergy to publish Democracy the popular political strategy game, developed by Positech ( www.positech.co.uk). Now gamers can feel what it’s like to sit in the chair of a head of state and run a major country the way they see fit.

You may think that politics is all about sticking to your principles no matter what, but Democracy is specifically designed to show you just how easily even the most honest politician will be forced to compromise in order to stay in power and keep the economy strong.

Democracy starts with you in the seat of the President (or Prime-Minister) of a modern country. The country is run as a simple democracy where you need to get over 50% of the vote in each election in order to remain in power. The object of the game is to stay in power as long as possible, as there are no limits to the number of terms you may serve. As the game progresses, you influence the voters and the country by putting policies into place. Different voting groups will have very different and often conflicting views as to which policies are desirable.

Can you manage to remain in office and run the country?

Features of Democracy include:

    <*>Plenty of never-before-seen events and dilemmas, some of which may sound familiar to recent world events… <*>Choose from many different countries: United States, Great Britain, Japan, Poland, Russia, and more! <*>Manage each turn of government development like policy changes, population agenda, reelection, budget, overall satisfaction of the constituents. <*>Over 80 different policy changes, each with an emphasis slider you can create a limitless number of political combinations to push whatever agenda you wish.

The critics who have already had their tenure in office have been raving about Democracy:

“Democracy will have you ripping your hair out as if you’re playing a real time strategy”

- GameSpy

“Losing a game of Democracy is almost as rewarding as winning your next election”

- GameTunnel

Democracy is scheduled for an October release date&will be available at major retail outlets throughout North America.
