The Windows demo version of Republic: The Revolution.
Power is everything. Following the fall of the mighty Soviet Union, dozens of autonomous states have sprung up from the crumbling remnants. One small republic, Novistrana, has become a hive of brutality and corruption. A ruthless dictator, Vassily Karasov, rules the country with an iron fist and a control based on fear and oppression. With a personal vendetta against him and seeds of discontent spreading throughout the nation, now is the moment to seize power and liberate the masses. Time to start a revolution.
Starting with a single loyal supporter you must create a powerful nationwide faction strong enough to oust Karasov. Using a combination of influence, wealth and force you must attempt to gain the allegiance of prominent public figures including members of the secret police, councillors, celebrities, priests and criminals. Hundreds of diverse actions enable you to order and manipulate the masses: from rallies and riots to constructing crime syndicates, holding charity galas, organising secret police hits or broadcasting news propaganda.
