I've had games go into retail before, but thsi si the first time they have been standalone rather than as a compilation.
Its VERY VERY

Its truly cool to be able to fill a shelf with boxes of your own games, which I have done now, and thats even before i get the Take 2 version of Starship Tycoon
Work continues on Democracy, getting better every day, I need to do some tidying up to make the code for loading in data a lot simpler, and then I will have a very elegant and structured piece of code. Im looking forward to the stage where the game is playable and fun and I can start
adding data and tweaking values.
I'm still swinging both ways on whether this will be a popular game that starts its own mini genre, or whether everyone will thinks its dull.
Still if Microsoft train simulator
can create a genre... surely politics can?
