Based on three main political systems (democracy, authoritarianism, totalitarianism), Realpolitiks allows you to extend the influence of your country through various means, all in order to win the race for global domination. Use your diplomatic skills, economic advantages, military power and the full freedom of moral and ethical decision-making to become a world superpower and ensure the well-being of your citizens.

Grow and develop your nation to the highest possible levels of economic power, technological competitiveness and military supremacy in globally-ranked charts. The choice is yours as to whether you become a valued member of the United Nations, or a nuclear tyrant, bullying all those around you. Expand your territory any way you like with the whole-world sandbox gameplay of Realpolitiks, even creating colonies out at sea. And if that's not enough, try spreading the seed of our civilization to outer space...
Lead any country in the world to global domination in various game scenarios.

Poland based developer Jujubee announced that Realpolitiks will appear on Nintendo Switch in Q3 2018.

The Nintendo Switch version will keep all gameplay elements of the previously released PC edition, it will also contain the latest DLC titled “New Power”.

The Realpolitiks New Power DLC injects fresh content and realism into the world of Realpolitiks. The “Korean Crisis” mini-scenario that features an actual nuclear threat, Non-Governmental Organizations that try to influence politics and new features for creating larger territorial units are highlights of this DLC.

The “Korean Crisis” mini-scenario points to one of the extensively discussed countries – North Korea. The North Korean nuclear threat becomes real in Realpolitiks: players can choose either side of the imminent conflict and have to deal with the explosive situation by either avoiding it, or adding more fuel to the fire. Playable nations include: the USA, China, North Korea and Japan.

An extra challenge is added through the presence of Non-Governmental organizations that exert additional pressure on today’s rulers and governments. Players have the options to work in secret with the mafia, support large corporations with subsidies and increased opportunities for business growth, maintain good relations with separatists and/or bring further harmony to their country through religion and more.

New diplomatic options in international politics include non-aggression pacts enabling peaceful coexistence with other nations, while political annexation offers another option for enlarging one’s territory without the use of military power. But still, everything comes at a price…
