This is my fourth 2024 custom campaign, in this campaign, Trump won re-election in 2020, mainly because of not catching COVID and attending 2nd debate.
After nearly 4 years, the primary season has began and a handful of Democrats and Republican candidates line up to try to win their parties nomination. Who will win the Democratic nomination? Will it be a hardcore progressive like Jeff Merkley? A more ‘moderate’ Progressive such as Sherrod Brown, or maybe a moderate’s moderate, with Terry McAuliffe. Its up to you!
Have fun playing!

A screenshot of the first turn of the general election. Swing States include, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, Florida, Maine, New Hampshire, Nevada, Arizona , some of these states will be harder to win then others, such as Ohio, which is generally a hard state to win, along with Texas.
In July 2011, President Obama was shot and killed by a white nationalist terrorist, Biden is promptly inaugurated as President for Obama’s last year of his first term. Biden then goes on to win a landslide victory in 2012, getting up to 395 Electoral votes. The majority of mainstream and establishment Republicans decide not to run leaving Trump able to gain the nomination and go on to lose to Biden, as said above. Biden’s Vice President for his 2012 race was Hillary Clinton, Obama’s formal rival. Biden’s 2012-2016 term marked a period of Democrat dominance, with the peak of dominance being Biden introducing a Public Option to Obama-Care in honor of his former friend and boss, Barack Obama. President Biden had made it a publicly known that he would be running again in 2016, until May 2015, when his eldest son died of cancer, which flipped his plans on its head. Biden feels as if he is not in the right emotional state to run in another election, and announces his decision to not seek a second term in July 2015. causing the Democratic Party primary to heat up greatly, matching the heat of the Republican Party primary.
This is my third 2024 custom campaign, but unlike the other two, this one is being worked on after the 2020 election happened, this campaign was made in the direct aftermath of the 2020 election, the base of the scenario, the idea of Trump running again and Biden not running, might prove to be laughable inaccurate, if so, just think of this campaign as a December 2020 time capsule about what the 2024 might look like. This campaign is also full of my own quirks and “charm”, such as the portrait styling.

Leave in the comments if you have any suggestions, I will take them seriously and might add them to the reworked V2.
Update: As suggested, I have added the “Blue Dog” party, headlined by moving Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) over. The party also includes Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Jim Webb (D-VA). Also for fun, I’ve added Independent candidate Mark Cuban. Comments welcome as always.
This is a spin-off of my 2020 Libertarian Revolution campaign. I’ve continued with that theme, but updated it to reflect Trump’s election. It’s 2020 and Donald Trump is running for election, but the Republican Party has split. There are two smaller parties in addition to Trump’s “Populist Republican.”
The “Constitutional Conservative Republican” party, led by Ted Cruz, represents those who are upset about Trump’s lack of Constitutional Conservative values, especially on trade and tariffs.
The “RINO Republican” Party represents the “establishment” Republicans such as Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan who have resisted the Washington shake-up that Trump has started.
Meanwhile the Democrats continue to swing left, but some moderates like John Hickenlooper may try to reclaim the party from its far-left movement.
Of course the Libertarian Party, though not putting up stellar numbers in 2016, has gained momentum. The 2016 runner-up, 39-year-old Austin Petersen headlines a talented group of candidates along with “former” Republican Rand Paul.
One other thing that I did was do the Issues almost completely from scratch. I felt that the original game, and many 2016 scenarios that I downloaded had way too many issues, as many as 50+ with many overlapping. I think that like most things, less is more when it comes to issues and candidates so I kept both at small numbers. The issues have been modeled after the website ontheissues.org, which also makes it easier to evaluate candidates’ positions on those issues. So I have re-done all issue positions one by one for each candidate.
So I hope you like it. Disagree with the candidates or parties? Have a suggestion? Someone missing? Please comment. Thanks for downloading!
