The State

The Government is Alive

You play as the "State"-an entity that is alive

A Turn based game, The State concerns a life form that lands on earth hundreds of years ago, and by watching nations learns to adapt and change. It becomes a controlling entity--a thing that takes over and becomes the government over a nation of the players' choosing. Neither a computer nor a body, the thing gets into everything---computers, the heads of the top officals, and by control makes the ultimate police state.

In this state, every thought, every action, is scanned and planned out by the state. It sets the boarders, and declares wars on other states it deems as a "bother". It brings the knowledge of its race to the earth by building bigger weapons, and slowly turns the citizens into what it believes to be "good entities."

The player can be the state or a citizen out to destroy it by finding the headquaters of the true entity and killing it. Graphics can be sim-city style, with Civ. battles.

       (-) I see a theme, but no suggestion suggestion of how that theme connects to the actual game play.

       [Xenzag] I could definately see how you would percieve America in such a fashion, but one thing you fail to take into account is ***This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. The broadcasters of your area in voluntary cooperation with the FCC and federal, state and local authorities have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of an emergency. Beeeeeeeeep. This concludes our test.*** as is evident in the forementioned. Believe me, I once thought that way myself, but now we both can plainly see how infantile such a position is.
