In addition, Wright also was inspired by reading "The Seventh Sally", a short story from The Cyberiad by Stanisław Lem, in which an engineer encounters a deposed tyrant, and creates a miniature city with artificial citizens for the tyrant to oppress.The game represented an unusual paradigm in computer gaming, in that it could neither be won nor lost; as a result, game publishers did not believe it was possible to market and sell such a game successfully.
The DDC is overseen by the IPCC Task Group on Data and Scenario Support for Impact and Climate Analysis (TGICA) and jointly managed by the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC) in the United Kingdom, the CSU World Data Center Climate (WDCC) in Germany, and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University, New York, USA.The data are provided by co-operating modelling and analysis centres.The data holdings of the IPCC Data Distribution Centre span the entire range of IPCC activities, ranging across disciplines from social-economic to the physical climate.The site is organised around three categories: observations; computer simulations; and analyses combining the first two.Most popular of these mods include Kaiserreich (alternate history where Central Powers won World War I), the Fallout Mod Fallout's Doomsday (set in the world of Fallout games), and Mod33 (rework of the game, beginning in 1933). There are plans to integrate the mod into the main Darkest Hour game in future patches.
AAR is development as an open project, thus players are free to participate in development.
The player can also alter the social and economic policies of their nation using sliders, such as democratic versus authoritarian, free market versus central planning and so on.

This title was in the original Castelli-Sonnabend video art collection.
It allows the player to take control of and manage nearly any nation-state during the 1914–1964 timeframe including its political, diplomatic, espionage, economic, military, and technological aspects. Darkest Hour Full provides different grand campaign scenarios (where it is possible to choose any of the nations involved) or battlescenarios (focused on single theaters of operations, with only a few nations involved and playable).
