---> Modern Command is in early alpha. We'll tell you when it changes. <---

Update January 15 2015 After a short, 10 year break, we're back in development. Please read the changelog below.

Modern Command simulates running a contemporary nation-state. You assume the role of a senior level official, and make decisions that effect the lives of millions of people in your country.

Technology, social, political, military, and economic issues all reflect events in today's news. You will control and manipulate this world just like real life leaders do; you will issue orders, sway opinions, budget resources, provide a vision and structure for your apt minions to do their work. You will negotiate, order, ask, sign, give, take, listen and talk.

Modern Command is a text-based multiplayer game. Instructions for connecting are below.
