Fall of the Eastern Bloc: Nation Sim Interest Check

Post by CarpeVerpa » 17:42:05 Tuesday, 13 March, 2018

This is an idea for a game I recently had, and would like to see if there is any interest.

As one could guess, it the setting would be during the fall of the Eastern Bloc at the end of the Cold War. As a nation sim, players would take on the roles of parties, factions, and important individuals within a communist Eastern European nation, guiding it through the turbulence of the period.

For the benefit of all, I believe it would behoove us best to play with a fictional country, in order to grant us all more freedom and leeway to act. My current thoughts are either setting things within an alternate history wherein Austria was divided into east and west, or creating an entirely fictional country for the game to take place within, having no connection to real locations.

If there is sufficient interest in this idea, and we can come to a consensus as to what setting would be best, I can promptly begin work on the mechanics of the game. Assistance with this from a seasoned nation sim runner would be appreciated, but not strictly necessary.

With all that said, I look forward to opinions and thoughts.

Not actually an ancap, thank God.

Until further notice, and barring any serious objections, I have decided that East Austrian alt history scenario shall be the one in which things will be taking place. With that in mind, here are some (Crude) assets so far whilst I work on the mechanics.

Interested. Worried about the potantially numerous implications of the Austria partition scenario, but I guess we could pretend nothing else changes if that changes. :P
