Stabbing pigs was the sacrifice mechanic in EU Rome as the comments point out. Maybe just a different stability mechanic if they are going for Rome? EU 4's hint was regarding badboy/infamy, so...

Aren't they supposed to be working on Victoria 3? Might this be that?

I'm still standing for my Caesar-stabbing simulator/stabbed-Caesar simulator. After all, you can't call Julius a pig!

Last time I read anything about it they said they had no plans of making Victoria 3. That was maybe a year or so ago though.

Gravedigger simulator
In which trying to fight (stab) the cops (pigs) who are attempting to stop you will result in a game over.

The goal is to dig up 73 graves.

Elections and Technological Development are important parts of the game.

Could still be a Rome/Antiquity game, and I could see it being a Space game as well.

I like how they're basically listing off features of all their other games for the most part.

Still, a paradox style grand strategy in some new setting would be a pretty neat thing, like say sci-fi HoI or fantasy CK or something. Sure you can get that stuff with mods already, but those are usually limited in what they can do.

Today's hint is "Elections and Technological Development are important parts of the game."

Sounds like something more modern, though it could still be Roman. I hope it is a more ahistorical grand strategy game this time around. Fantasy would be my favourite option, but elections don't sound very fantastical. Space could be fun too but the "terrain is important" hint doesn't really mesh so well with space.

EDIT: I totally missed that the hint was already posted above me. Need moar coffee.
