THIS GAME WAS DEVELOPED FOR THE LUDUM DARE 31, IN 3 DAYS!

For the Homeland is a videogame in which you take control of a dictatorship of both left and right wings.

Your main mission is to resist the rage of the social classes and to improve your army to conquer all the neighbouring countries.

In order to accomplish this mission, you'll have to, among other things, decide upon the lives of your prisoner citizens, make deals with other countries, and elaborate complex strategies...

Your country is waiting for you!

Great and addicting, clever, also- 1 question: why are there people, possibly working class jumping around..... are they happy or are they protesting?

This was EXTREMELY clever. I loved the design and the concept.
If you ever think about expanding or updating this game, here are just a few quick things that I personally think would improve gameplay:
The bird always falling asleep and waking up with that grunting sound: SUPER irritating. Also made it take longer for me to just see the dang report or for him to pick up the phone. Might have been funny if it happened once or twice but it was like every thirty seconds. Way too much.
And I don't quite understand why convicting murderers and rapists would *upset* people of the same social class... I feel like the point would have been better made if the crimes were things like "drew unflattering political cartoon of you" or "didn't pay all of the money they owed" or "suspected of treason," or something where the working class WOULD get upset that people were being sent to the gulag for just trying to live. Otherwise it really seems like they WANT murderers and rapists to go free, and that really just doesn't follow.
Lastly, it would have been a huge help if, when the business men present their proposals, they tell you a little more about how people will react. For example: a commercial "about kids drinking whiskey with cowboys." Will this POSITIVELY or NEGATIVELY affect working class mood? What's the angle? Is the commercial selling whiskey to children? More info would be helpful for strategizing and planning ahead.

I really did enjoy this game and I think it has a lot of potential. It is really excellent work.

This was one of the best games I've played on newgrounds! It's because you are able to get different endings. I loved it!

Interesting premise and a good start so far. Could be a little more complex.
