This is a really cool game. There are few games that can churn your stomach even when you're winning. The minimalistic, dehumanizing interface is really great too. They could've smacked you over the head with gruesome images of nuclear war, but they went with a cold death toll and blips on a screen. Somehow the extreme disconnection from the effects of your actions makes the implications of what you're doing so much more sickening.

You were like a full on pro tournament commentator at the end there Danny ;)

Yeah I always liked this game, much more deep and satisfying than Superpower 2 which looked very busy but was actually unbelievably shallow.  I'd much rather this bare-minimum but incredibly intricate take on nuclear warfare.

This game is the PREQUEL to the FALLOUT series.

reminds me of a board game called SUPREMACY (which played like a Risk with a stock exchange, resources and tech research plus nuclear weapons).


if 12 territories were nuked in the game, the game simply ended. NO WINNERS. EVERYBODY LOSES.

Game music really eerie. Sets a real feeling of impending doom for all.

Reminds me of balance of power, who played that back in the day? Would make a good random encounter :).

Watching this game made me feel uneasy for some reason.

Amazing game. Nothing better than gloating to your enemies about wiping off millions from their civilian populations while you ready your submarines off their coasts for the second strike. 


'Los Angeles hit - 1.2 million dead' WOOP!


Of course nobody wins, you just gotta lose less than the other guys.

wow. What a weird game.

The music has a heavy air about it: constantly reminding you how terrible this all is. I find it very strange.

God this seems likes an amazing historical game; so other game suggestions are Bulletstorm [2011] and Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc [2003].

The only winning move is not to play.  Or to kill everyone else first.

@twentymooseman I'm glad Im not the only one who got really uncomfortable watching this. Whoever designed this is a freaking genius.

@twentymooseman This is a creepypasta worthy game. "DEFCON.EXE" 

Kind of want to play SuperPower 2 again now.

@Dudeinator Probably because it's a game that actively encourages you to create a nuclear holocaust for the sake of entertainment.


You should play it, it's so much fun.

@cornbredxIt would be more weird if the game had happy music like  Entry Of The Gladiators playing in the background...Now that would be weird.
