Greetings, Comrade Francis River.
The Union of People’s Orange Communes (UPOC) congratulates you on being appointed as the mayor of Iron-1.

About the Game
“For the people!” is an acute social novel with strategic elements that puts the player in the shoes of a state official – the newly appointed mayor of Iron-1.
The destiny of Iron-1 is now in your hands and it will be down to you to handle everything from the justice system – it will be you who manages the townspeople’s appeals for justice, to managing the various city departments – who gets funded and who does not is your choice.
But don’t forget, politics is a dirty game and you will need to outwit your cunning opponents. Information is power – but to what lengths will you go to acquire it?
- Develop a taste for power: play fair or become a corrupt politician;
- Think strategically: distribute resources among the residents to earn their trust and increase your own influence;
- A constant balancing act: any decision made in-game has its consequences!
With over 5 possible endings, every decision that you make will have a consequence. You will need to balance the interests of the party, the future of the country, and the very livelihood of your citizens.
So, whose side will you really be on?
A Look at the Game
As the mayor, the people will turn to you – but it is up to you who gets help. Are some jobs beneath you, or are you a mayor for everyone?
Your office is your base of operations where you will be called by the various departments to make the important decisions.
Helen Rosie is your ever-reliable secretary who has high hopes for you. Do not let her down.
