HandyGames' This Is the President is out now on iOS and Android devices, letting players experience what it's like to be the POTUS on mobile. It's time to get your business matters in order as you cover up conspiracies and learn the ropes of becoming a "proper politician".

In This Is the President, players can expect a story-driven adventure littered with elements of management and strategic thinking. Players step into the shoes of the President of the United States of America in the year 2020, trying to salvage what's left of their public image after making not-so-prudent choices as an ex-businessman. In your shady dealings as a multi-millionaire, you made some questionable decisions and will have to escape justice for your mistakes - as such, ratifying Amendment 28 is crucial to gain lifetime immunity as President.
