If you have a subscription to Drengin.net, you can now download the first public beta of Stardock''s new strategy game, The Political Machine.
This beta is just that - a beta. It is not representative of what the final game will be like and has a great number of limitations.
Some key notes:
1) It currently will only run on Windows XP. We expect to have that fixed next week.
2) The multiplayer is buggy (it''ll crash if either player goes on TV or uses political operatives)
3) You MUST have DirectX 9 installed. Link
If you have Galactic Civilizations you can upgrade to Drengin.net at a reduced cost (the cost will be going up soon so take advantage of the current low upgrade pricing while you can): Link
