The Game

ZoomView Screenshots

People Power is about politics, about strategy and about social change. As a leader of a popular movement you fight against tough adversaries who control the police, the army and bureaucracy, even the media. The only weapon in your hand is your strategic skill and ingenuity.

People Power is more than a game. It’s an opportunity to join a community of others who want to learn about civil resistance and nonviolent strategies. Everyone can design scenarios and post them on the scenario page, available to the whole community. During the “open beta” phase of development now concluded, comments and suggestions from many users were received and incorporated in the current version. User feedback remains welcome, and will guide future development. On our Forum, you can exchange ideas with other players and scenario designers.
