SHASN IN THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
3 months ago – Fri, Sep 06, 2019 at 02:21:52 AM

Friends and politicians, if we can have your attention please.

We have something superbly exciting to share with you. SHASN has found its way to the top echelons of Indian politics. Last week, we had the unbelievable opportunity and honor of playing our game with the former President, Shri (Mr.) Pranab Mukherjee.

Mr. Mukherjee served as the 13th President of India from 2012 until 2017. And last week, he reprised his role briefly on the SHASN board.

This is the kind of real-world reach and impact we had previously only dreamed of. Thank you all for being on the journey that has brought us here. See you in the next update!

ELITE CONTESTS - REMAINING WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!
3 months ago – Sat, Aug 24, 2019 at 11:55:26 PM

Hi there backers!

It’s been a few days since our last update. After some much needed rest, we are back to work. Right off the bat, we have some important news to share! We had five contest winners yet to be announced, and here they are!

ELITE #4 - THE PATRON

Blessed are we, to have had the most incredible community. So many of you are risen above and beyond the call of duty, but nobody has done more for SHASN than one truly remarkable individual, and leader.

Justin Goodman is the face of The Patron!

Justin has been a rock, a bastion of our game right from the get go. A one-person army, you only need to visit our Campaign’s comments section once to see just how much he’s done for the community. Justin made not one, but two campaign speeches (and worked through personal discomfort), mobilised the people repeatedly to unlock many stretch goals, and had clear answers ready for most queries.

Thank you, Justin!!

ELITE #9 - THE LOBBYIST

In this contest, you all had an opportunity to reclaim and rewrite some of the most significant quotes in political history. There was one instant classic:

ELITE #10 - THE WHISTLEBLOWER

This contest required significant political acumen, as contestants identified what real world politicians corresponded to various ideological builds in SHASN. One individual was consistently thorough and on point with their insights:

ELITE #10 - THE TECHNOCRAT

Several bizarre and hilarious headlines later, we settled on one that was uncomfortably funny and feasible:

After combing through many bold, exciting visions of the world, we had a clear favorite:

Hey backers!

The Capitalist may have lost the Ideologue Elections Final, and The Supremo and The Idealist may have gotten knocked out in the primaries, but their ideas will live on. 

The final stretch goal has been unlocked!!

We have touched 4000 backers and every deleted stretch goal is now returning as Print & Play!! You can look forward to playing the Hold The Throne game mode, pledging The Oath of Office and recording your most memorable moments with The Achievement Book.
