Finished the game one step from being fired. Proud af. Now I'm an unholy mix of Jeremy Corbyn and Boris Johnson.

Review from Steam

It is as good as a political visual novel gets but it is still a hesitant recommendation from me.
There are too many names and mechanics. City bartering mini game almost exclusively exist in a vacuum and even if you work your workers to the bone, game is not long enough for the adverse effects to be felt. However, almost every character tie to the overarching narrative quite well.
I played for 3 hours(only did one run), fumbled in the dark for the most of it but still managed to reach what could be considered best ending. I'd still say go grab the game if you are interested or on the fence since it is cheap and genre does not have much competition.

Review from Steam

Short interesting game
storyline have little variation
Many different mechanics, but some of them are not fully developed
7/10 - but full price to big
On discount must buy if you love game this type.

Review from Steam

Really loved the game, but, it was to short, i dind't have problems reading all the letters or anything, but hell yeah, there was a lot of text. Of course, i would have liked to read even more, if that means more game

Review from Steam

I beat the game in 7 hours and enjoyed it.
Never played anything quite like it, but it plays a bit like a political drama where you as the main character have a significant amount of leeway in how you handle (or fail to handle) events. It's quite easy to end up in a tight spot where you need to start resorting to shady deals and violence to stop the city from falling apart.
Overall I would have enjoyed a longer game, and a bit more branching of a story. I dislike how the romance seems relatively railroaded, and felt that the love interest was a bit... overly telegraphed and male fantasy-y but it still works. Something I would have liked to see is a bit more variation in the portraits of your visitors, they should change to reflect your choices and current relationship. No bedroom eyes from day one, and people you offend should look angry and people you please should look happy.
Anyways, for 7 dollars I recommend it and I'd buy a sequel.

Nice good game.
Mostly this is a visual novel with a small number of plot forks.
Plus a primitive mini-game with the distribution of resources.
You can complete this once, but you don’t want to replay all the endings.
