What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable according to the features listed in the main description, similar to the already released mobile editions (Android & iOs). There might still be a few bugs left related with desktop resolutions that will be adressed soon.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, there will a discount during early access period. After that the game will raise to final price tag.”

Early Access

First of all, thank you! Nothing would have been possible without the amazing community that gathered around the mobile editions of Laws of Civilization.

It has been a really really long journey since the first concept 4(!) years ago. As a fan of politics, I've spent many time trying to find a political simulation game which would allow me to change laws through a parliamentary system and eventually to even change the whole system itself. Couldn't find anything like this on stores. So, on a daily trip by metro I've decided to finally roll up my sleeves and make the game I was seeking. Now we are here.

The game is live for early access. The final word goes to the crowd! If you find a bug, UI issue or balancing problem don't hesitate to report it by email to

Thank you all for the support and encouragement.
More updates and fixes to come!
