In G.P.S., the player plays the role of the head of State or government (president, monarch, prime minister ΓÇª) of a country he has selected at the beginning of the game, and may intervene in all the following fields: the economy, social issues, the military, the Home Office and the Foreign Office, ecology, culture, etc.
Every country in the world is featured along with its characteristics and own specificities,
Three game modes are offered to the player:
-ΓÇ£Free modeΓÇ¥: the player's objective is to remain in power as long as possible and to further his influence throughout the world.
- "Scenario" and "missions" modes: these offer different game contexts featuring various issues: new elections, environmental issues, army invasions...
- "Wargame" mode: several players (up to 16) confront one another online in the course of military campaigns taking place in real time. This mode is also available in solo gaming.
Measures carried out by player :
The first task of the head of State is to form his or her government and choose his or her ministers selected among the countryΓÇÖs top personalities.
Over a thousand measures are available in the gameΓÇÖs different government departments, and operate according to the running of each individual country. A distinction is made between measures directly carried out by the player (ie: dismissing a minister, visiting a hospital, appearing on television, ordering an enquiry to be carried out by the secret services, setting his or her election platform), and the bills he or she may introduce but which must be passed in Parliament ΓÇô in the case of democratic regimes, quite obviously ΓÇô (ie: modifying VAT rate, extending retirement age, creating a new tax, banning political parties, increasing social minima, changing the term of office of the head of State...). The player may also, through his or her organizer, arrange meetings with the countryΓÇÖs influential personalities (trade unions, associations, religious icons, the countryΓÇÖs top stars...), his or her relatives (mother, wife/husband, personal clairvoyant, head of security...), foreign heads of state, internationally celebrated personalities (the pope, the UNO secretary general, a Formula 1 racing world champion...). These meetings enable him or her to negotiate social agreements, enter into military alliances or clinch important economic contracts, corrupt decision-makers, appeal to media darlings, etc etc.
In the end, according to his or her choices and political ability, the player may end up being a humanist president or a ruthless dictator.
In all events, he or she must face a certain number of problems which may act as a threat to his or her powers: considerable budget deficit, outbursts of popular discontent, terrorist groups, international conflicts, economic warfare... and, in the case of democratic regimes, he or she must always strive for re-election and a new term of office!
