Description:
Prime Minister’s Questions: The Game is a FREE experimental game in which you pretend to be the prime minister of the UK. It may not sound like a recipe for fun, but it’s a great little indie game that feels more like an old Monkey Island adventure than a prolonged C-Span viewing session. Give the game a shot, and see if you have what it takes to lead the British government.

Prime Minister’s Questions: The Game spoofs the constitutional convention in the United Kingdom with the same name, where the prime minister spends half an hour answering questions from the opposing party on a weekly basis. Similar to Monkey Island’s swordfight sequences, you’ll trade words with Her Majesty’s Opposition on a number of government issues, and the loser of any exchange will concede a few points of health as the ministers begin to lose faith in their leader.

You can only play as the Prime Minister in this game, and the voiced parts do not include the replies that go back and forth between the two party leaders. Some answers may seem to be random at first, but you should be able to figure out the correct response to every question with just a bit of thought and lucky guesswork.
