    A riveting politico-economic drama that seamlessly turns into a journey of self-knowledge. Political Sim games fans, Choose-Your-Own-Adventure enthusiasts, as well as those who crave strong narratives, should definitely check it out.

    This is a brilliant political strategy game, very well written and full of gut-wrenching decisions. Only you will decide the fate of the Republic - and its embattled president.

    Suzerain is unlike most things you can play that’s out right now. The choose your own adventure stylings are fascinating, with rabbit trail upon rabbit trail to investigate. Because of this, you’ll be able to play it again and again, and because they do such a great job with the setting and people you’re going to want to. While some sections can be long in tooth, they only make me appreciate what Suzerain is doing, creating a riveting narrative of what it’s like to be President.

    Suzerain is an interesting game with some serious quality behind it. Those who want more machinations in their strategy games, particularly when tied to some characters with genuine depth, will find a lot to love.

    Suzerain is a compelling political drama/simulation and if you have the patience for great walls of text and often punishing decision-making, this is the game for you.

    Suzerain is basically West Wing in game form, which is as awesome as it sounds. A game more akin to 80 Days than Civilization, Suzerain is a surprisingly compelling narrative that allows players to run a country with their own ideas about how things should be done to see if they’re right. I got to test out my theory of crime being a symptom of failings in other areas, pushing education and healthcare to the forefront; I was happy to see crime decrease as a response to increased access to necessary services. Suzerain may not seem exciting upon first glance due to its limited mechanics, but within minutes you’ll be hooked on Sordland’s history with a desire to shape its future. If you think you can run a country, prove it — grab Suzerain today.
  7. Suzerain is not a game with action dynamism. You mostly encounter text walls and you read it all the time. Suzerain is a game that can be developed with updates and attracts strategy lovers like me.

    Spent many hours and many playthroughs exploring the game. Absolutely incredible. High marks in storytelling, plot, characters, socialSpent many hours and many playthroughs exploring the game. Absolutely incredible. High marks in storytelling, plot, characters, social commentary, etc...but what makes the game special is how responsive the narrative is to the player. Strong start for Torpor games. Excited to see what they do next. Expand
