At the $220,000 kick starter stretch goal, we see Pirates, Ninjas, and Politicians. While I feel the whole “Pirates and Ninjas” side of things is self explanatory being that they will probably cause crime as was explained. The Politicians bit isn’t. If we have Politicians in the game, I could only assume that there will be a form of Government in your civilization. If this is so, what will it effect? Foreign relations with other players/tribes? Possible taxation on subjects? A currency based economy? Government in my opinion, is pretty interesting. If it is in this game, that would be cool, but have we gained any info on it besides the very short and anti conclusive description on the kick starter page? I am just curious to what it will be for, or if it was just a typo to have Politicians in the stretch goals.
Now, back to the crime part. If there is crime, I would think there must be some form of law enforcement. Guards/Detectives maybe? Is this going to be like Sim City, where you can go into a sort of utilities view and see what parts of your city have more crime than others? I also noticed a past post about there being prisons. If there are prisons, perhaps there will also be things like court houses. I am not sure how much detail they want to put into law enforcement, but from what Tom and Tony sound like, they just might want to.
Let me know what you guys think.
