Herman Cain has made a splash in the Republican Presidential nomination race with his “9-9-9” tax plan, denoting the percentage he would apply to housing tax, commercial tax and industrial tax. To some, this was reminiscent of the tax plans in SimCity, and Electronic Arts has seized on the moment to make SimCity 4 available for $9.99.

“We encourage politicians to continue to look to innovative games like SimCity for inspiration for social and economic change,” said Kip Katsarelis, a senior producer at EA Maxis. “While we at Maxis and Electronic Arts do not endorse any political candidates or their platforms, it’s interesting to see GOP candidate Herman Cain propose a simplified tax system like one we designed for the video game SimCity 4.”
