Ah, what haven’t I played… 🙂
This time I’m sort of hooked to a game called eRepublik. It’s a bit different than other games I’ve played of similar nature. How it differs is that it simulates a real country and some of the things that go on inside it, as well as its relations to other countries.
This gives it a sort of seriousness about it that I was missing from other games. This seriousness can be felt from the players within as well. Undoubtedly, those of you who haven’t played it or heard about it will ask why? Well, let me give you a brief overview.
You see, in eRepublik you start by creating a character which is a citizen of a certain country. And when I say citizen you better take it literally, as changing your citizenship requires sending an application and waiting for another country’s congress to approve it and… Well, you get the picture. As a starting citizen you can’t really do that much. You can get a job at a certain company, you can train in the military and that’s about it. You’ll end up spending a few minutes a day clicking the same two buttons for at least the first few days.
