A new beta of The Political Machine is available for Drengin.net subscribers via Stardock Central. You will need to delete your *.DDS files to make use of the new graphics (in the \gfx graphics).
Multiplayer works! Join #PolMachine on Stardock Central's chat to get games together. Let us know what problems you run into in the game forum on PoliticalMachine.com (or in this news item). New features such as exit polling, candidate creation, and lots of other goodies are now in. Have fun!
