New Republic: The Revolution Preview Updated
6:44 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Gaming website Homelan Federation & Alliance have posted an update to their preview of Elixir Studio's upcoming strategy game / political sim Republic: The Revolution.

The short preview is based on impressions of a partial beta build of the game, which re-inforced earlier impressions about the scope and gameplay of the new title:

After playing the beta build however, it slowly dawned on us that Republic the Revolution reminds us, believe it or not, of The Sims. The Sims doesn’t have a lot going for it on the surface (who wants to control a human around an ordinary house?) but its open ended game mechanics have hooked millions. Republic is also a game that on the surface doesn’t seem to hold that much appeal but after playing with it for a few hours the gameplay gets you get really involved in the life of a political rebel who is determined to bring his native country back from oppression.
With the PC version of the game expected to be released by the end of the month, gamers interested in the title should turn to British publishing mavens Feral Interactive for the Mac port. While no official release date has been confirmed, Feral representatives expect the Mac version to become available shortly after the PC version hits the shelves.

Stay tuned to IMG for news on this intriguing new title.
