Reelect JFK has you controlling President Kennedy from November, 1963 to Election Day in 1964. The player only plays one day
from each of the 50 weeks of this term. Gameplay is progressed through meetings, at the end of which the player must make a
decision that will affect the progress of that cause (Civil Rights, Vietnam, or Reelection), as well as the player's approval rating at
home and abroad. Some days are also taken up completely by crisis meetings, which the player must attend. Other special
considerations, like whistle-stop tours and national budget allocations, must also be addressed at points throughout the year.
When not in meetings, the player can send President Kennedy throughout the White House, in a first-person adventure interface,
or out into the field to collect clues. The President often takes the guise of fictitious reporter "Kevin Bruderman" during these
sequences, allowing him to dodge the Secret Service and be placed directly in harm's way.
Each of the 50 days has eight hours of time available to the player (tracked by an in-game clock at center-left). Time is measured
per action, and only passes when the player clicks on something. Reading evidence may take a short amount of time off the
clock, while travel may shave hours. Meetings eat up a large amount of time, and the mandatory crisis meetings will leave the
player with a significantly shortened day.
The game uses a combination of full-motion-video and computer-generated locations. Generally, all meetings are FMV, and all
investigation locations are CG. Players use a point-and-click interface to transition from one still scene to the next. All dialogue
is spoken, and all historical figures (including both Kennedys) are voiced by impersonators.
