Each side takes it in turns to position their forces and then attack using a variety of moves.
Plot Synopsis (if story game): The game takes place in 2044 in London, England. After the collapse of the British Government under its own weight and corruption, the corporations which has been buying its way into parliament began to take control for their own means.

Danny, a former employee of said company turned anarchist rebel, catches wind of the plans through internal contacts in the company and plans to stop the bio-weapon before it irreversibly ends the lives of not just the island, but the world. He must assemble a team of rag-tag soldiers of many backgrounds whilst he fights his own psyche in an ever collapsing world that he called home.

Name of Game: Startup: The Young Entrepreneurs
Release Date: May 2021
Developer: MarianStar GameProd
Genre: Business simulation game, economic simulation.
How the game plays: The game is played by a player starting a startup company with an initial investment of virtual 5,000 Mariana in which the player can take control of a 17-19 year old teen and invest on retail, agriculture or a small industrial business on a certain regency (with each real PRMP regency having its own advantage based on PRMP's economy itself, e.g. A regency has a cheap textile and garment costs for it to be resold as retail since it is a real manufacturing hub for garments in PRMP), in which they will try to improve their businesses or become broke (that ends in a game over), they can buy virtual goods for their own business or services from AI companies. And if the player becomes successful they can opt for more diverse businesses and invest on heavy industries and even stocks, the goal of the game is to outweigh every AI-controlled competitor (usually 10,000 AI businesses per single player game) or be the top of the leaderboard on a multiplayer server. The game contains more than 660 types of businesses from reselling up to a multinational conglomerate.
Plot Synopsis (if story game): The synopsis involves a 18 year old student (male or female) who tries to start a company after his/her father looses a job on a corporation that went bankrupt and her mother that failed her small family business. He or she must rose through the ranks and lift his/her family from poverty despite hurdles that could disrupt his/her entrepreneurship such as high costs, recessions, crime, military service and even personal problems.
Any extra info: The game was made with real data gathered from the country, and acts as a simulation and virtual training for wannabe businessmen in PRMP. Also it teaches players on handling businesses and promoting them to start a real business itself.
Welcome to PRMP! (Indonesian culture, tropical rainforest paradise, free markets, dominant private sector, low taxes and a limited government $$).

Name of Game: The Detrimental Reality of the Internet (and Phones)
Release Date: 16th April 2020 (first game) 3rd May 2024 (second game) 16th April 2028 (third game)
Developer: Kraken
Genre: Adventure, First Player Game, Open World Game
How the game plays: The player is a person who is obsessed with the internet. The character is always on their phone whenever they are outside, and on their computer whenever they are in their house, including while eating. The player can change the gender of the character. As they play the game, they see the views of the character.
Plot Synopsis (if story game): The protagonist is outside, walking across a busy road. After the starting cutscene, the player can freely explore their town until 8 PM, when the game goes into a cutscene where the protagonist walks back into their house and sleeps in their bed. When the protagonist wakes up, the player can, once again, freely roam their town until 8 PM, except that sometimes, the protagonist walks into a café and uses their phone, wasting three hours of the day. As the days pass, the duration increases by ten minutes. On the twentieth day and onwards, the screen can flash red, due to the urge of the protagonist wanting to use their phone but cannot due to the lack of a cafe, and it worsens over the days. On the twenty-fifth day and onwards, the protagonist instead just stands in place and uses their phone, this time for an hour or two. On the thirtieth day, the protagonist starts walking while using their phone. On the fortieth day, while going crossing a road and going back home, the protagonist does not see the light is red and crosses the road. Unfortunately, a reckless driver sadly runs the protagonist over and he dies. Before the credits roll, the text says, "Don't be too focused on your phone while outside. You could die like your character."
Aftermath: The game received overwhelmingly positive reviews at the beginning for teaching many people the importance of safety. Statistics show that the rate of deaths from being run over by vehicles dramatically reduced, leading to great reviews. Kraken then released a second game four years later, then another one four years after that, also doubling as an eight-year anniversary. The community made a choose-your-path book, a wiki, many spin-off games and a website to find all the spin-off games.
Any extra info: The year's 2029 for us.

Name of Game: Black Star (stylised as black/star)
Release Date: 12th December 1999
Developer: Noir Development
Platforms: Dreamcast, PS1, PC (re-released as black/star de_lux on Xbox and PS2 in 2002)
Genre: Action-Adventure, Puzzle, Hack and slash
How the game plays: The game has two core gameplay sections: combat and hacking. The combat section involves the player using weapons or abilities to take on waves of opponents which progressively get more difficult the more waves you survive. The hacking sections involve puzzles, which can range from connecting wires and pathways to timing based puzzles. The game is also split into two halves, light and dark, corresponding to whichever hacking group you play as, as well as a final chapter as a closure to the story.
Plot Synopsis (if story game): The game takes place in an alternate 1999 in Detroit, where two hacking groups are in an intense power struggle to achieve their ideals. The light team of the game, Zyro, wishes to use control of the city in order to expose a new government initiative called "Operation Black Star", which will disable all computer usage across the Mid-West, and therefore render them and the entire hacking scene useless. The dark team, Overseer, wishes to use control in order to take over the entire city from the inside and use it as a complex base of operations. In the light section of the story, Zyro massively cuts away at Overseer's control of the North and East of the city and in the dark section, Overseer makes those losses back. By the end of the dark story, Overseer learns of Black Star and is ready to join the side of Zyro in order to protect their own livelihood. The final chapter sees both leaders of the two teams (Mark for Zyro and Arthur for Overseer) personally raid the town hall and take down the officials who were behind the plans. Whilst heavily fortified, they break in and fight the many creations of the government they were planning to use to enforce the proposal. The game ends with the two leaders shaking hands, and Arthur uttering the game's most famous line, "Evil and good aren't as far away as I thought, my friend."
Any extra info: The game received critical acclaim on release, currently sitting at a 91 critic rating on Metacritic and a 9.3 user rating. Whilst the series lay dormant for years, a sequel called black/star 2: rewind was released in 2018 and has received a Metacritic critic rating of 86, with many debating which game was better in the series.

Herbert Hoover's disastrous policies caused America's economic decline and led to the Depression, Franklin Roosevelt, the newly elected Democrat President, narrowingly defeat both Republicans, Socialists, and the Far-Right. FDR's New Deal brought mixed results and was not enough to stop the Depression. A series of protests throughout the nation ensues, with troops stationed in every city to quell rebellions.

Name of Game: Last Dream 2
Release Date: March 16 1999
Developer: Porowhita Software
Platforms: PS1, PC
Genre: RPG
How the game plays: The game is similar to JRPGs and featured turn-based random battles and a mostly linear, story driven plot that slowly expanded into an open world. The story depends heavily on the players choices while combat involves building up EXP not just for the players but also for mythical creatures that they encounter and use along the way.
Plot Synopsis (if story game): You play as Kapua Ua, a young boy from a small village which is attacked by giant robots but encounters a number of Maori gods and mythological figures/creatures such as the Taniwha who give you special powers to overcome the powers who attacked your village.

Along the way you meet a host of other characters who join your party as you level up, hoping to overthrow the robots that attacked you by journeying to their capital city.

When you get there you learn that the robots are actually humans whose consciousnesses were uploaded to machines and that years ago a terrible nuclear war almost wiped out the human race, with your people surviving only because they were isolated.

You must then journey to find the Maori gods and ask them to join you on a fight to destroy the evil machine, known as "Jehovah", who is a ruthless and destructive god controlling the robots and are told if you don't then he will convert everyone you love into one of his robots.

Any extra info: In some English translations the final boss "Jehovah" is renamed "Demiurgos" to avoid offending Christians. In the west the game, although successful, was considered very controversial for its themes of anti-Christianity and anti-colonialism. Nevertheless the game remains the most successful internationally released video game by a studio in Tangatarehua.
