Today I came across Lawgivers, a turn-based political simulation game which recently added Linux support and it looks like it could be a lot of fun.
Since it's a political sim, you will be tasked with leading your party into elections. If you manage to get voted in, you will be responsible for approving laws and shaping your country’s destiny. Have a look at the trailer below:
Always great to see games add Linux support! Especially like this, where it's being quite highly rated with a "Very Positive" user score on Steam. It was originally a mini-game that sold quite well on mobile platforms so they adapted it into a full desktop game.
- Choose a party, promise actions to citizens and run for elections
- Approve or abolish laws with parliamentary votes
- Take care of lawmaker's experience, popularity and loyalty
- Bribe concurrent politicians in order to win majority
- Build up relations with other parties and appoint the president
- 15 playable nations such as the US, Russia, or South Korea
- Over 100 ordinary and constitutional laws
- 38 science advances
What's nice, is that they actually have a demo too so you can properly try before you buy and it seems to work without issues. Seems like it has a lot of potential and I say that since this is not a finished game, there's bound to be a few rough edges to it. Not overly complex either but still interesting enough.
You can find it on Steam in Early Access.
