    W00t. I just read the democracy 2 review in UKs PC Gamer magazine and it got 80%, the third highest score in the magazine, 1% behind Aquaria, and 4% below Armageddon empires. It's a glowing review too, and listed as a 'bargain'.
    I'm dead pleased :D
    The drinks are on me!!!!!

    Why isn't there a cliffski's achievement announcements section on the boards? :p

    Great job dude. I was in PC gamer UK's free dvd once.

    Great stuff.

    Did you notice a surge in downloads or sales when the magazine went out?

    Sweet - so you'll be down at Hankies tomorrow night or was that a "virtual beer" that I can enjoy now?

    All kidding aside, congratulations. Democracy seems like a great category for a designer/programmer to turn into a long term franchise.

    Is this a sign of the times? I hope the "mainstream" gaming world is starting to realize that there's more to gaming than big guns, big boobs, and expensive system requirements.

    Congrats on the review! :)

    The magazine isn't in stores yet AFAIK, I get a subscriber copy. I never noticed big sales spikes before, although this is my best review score so far. Still very welcome though :D.
