President of Brazil (sort of)

You are Dilma Rousseff


Do not read this story straight through from beginning to end. These web pages contain many different adventures you may have as Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff. From time to time as you read along, you will be asked to make a choice. Your choice may lead to success or disaster!

Remember—you cannot go back!

I mean, I guess you could click your browser’s “back” button. But I’ll know if you do, and I’ll be angry about it.

Palácio da Alvorada mezzanine

You are Dilma Rousseff, ex-guerilla fighter and beleaguered president of Brazil.

The Olympics in Rio de Janeiro are underway, and this should have been the crowning moment of your presidency. But instead you are pacing the halls of the presidential palace like a caged tiger, awaiting the results of your impeachment trial.

The man ruling the country while you await trial, Michel Temer, was once your vice president and closest ally—until he conspired to force you from power and seize the (interim) presidency for himself. You would love to confront him face-to-face and denounce him as a liar, a traitor, and—let’s face it—a pretty lousy friend. On the other hand, perhaps your time would be better spent doing interviews with the media, to get your side of the story out there.
