Victoria II: Demo I

Paradox's Victoria II - the 19th century political strategy game - is out in three days. In the meantime you can find out if you're interested in industrialisation, political reforms, military conquest, and colonization, by checking out the demo. And because you've been good, there's a trailer below.

Here's a snippet of information I just discovered on the game's Wikipedia page. There's a bet within Paradox that the game won't make a profit. So much so that if it does, Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester will shave his head and post pictures of the result on their forum. It seems 70,000 copies will need to shift for the development team to receive their victory. It's obviously a very specialist game, so it'll be interesting to see whether the boss gets a severe haircut.
