A Force More Powerful (Nonviolence Strategy Game) now available

The long awaited A Force More Powerful - The Game of Nonviolent Strategy - is now available for purchase on CD-ROM for PC users at the price of $19.95 plus shipping and handling. No Mac version of the game is available at this time. AFMP is a simulation game (see a review by a gamer) that teaches the strategy of nonviolent conflict. A dozen scenarios, inspired by recent history, include conflicts against dictators, occupiers, colonizers and corrupt regimes, as well as struggles to secure the political and human rights of ethnic and racial minorities and women. Discounts are available for educational institutions and for groups struggling to promote social change. A players guide is available as a pdf (3.3 MB) online at the game’s companion site. Developers may be interested to know that the Lua scripting language can be used in scenarios to add unique situations, events, victory conditions, etc.

AFMP requires a PC platform with the following minimum specifications:
- Pentium III CPU, 600 MHz (1.2 GHz recommended)
- Windows 98/2000/ME/XP
- 128 MB RAM (256 MB recommended)
- Video card with 32 MB of RAM and Hardware TnL (GeForce 2 or equivalent)
- 800 MB of free disk space
- DirectX 9.0c or newer
