Great game, great community

Politics and war is a wonderful MMO nation simulator game that lets you collaborate with people and build your nation, form alliances, wage wars etc. I’ve been playing for almost three years now and have met some amazing friends throughout. Highly recommend using discord if you’re gonna play, it makes everything smoother, especially communication which is an essential part of building alliances and cooperating. The creator of the game in particular is an outlier in the online gaming world as he is extremely available to the players through the P&W forums/Discord server and will frequently talk directly to us about changes to the game and potential issues. Plus he’s generally just a really nice guy! If you like nation simulator games or you have ambitions for world domination then you have to try P&W. If you happen to sign up, DM my nation Lacedaemonia (leader Michael K Ultra) and I’ll send you a cool million bucks just for reading my review. :D

Fantastic Slow-Paced Game

I’ve been playing this game since the summer of 2020 and I’ve enjoyed it since. The uniqueness of this game is like none other, I’ve always wanted to play a good nation building game and this is the one that’s best! Though if you are expecting an extremely quick paced game then this game isn’t for you, it requires lots of patience and little time each day to complete certain tasks. I’ve really enjoyed playing this game and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.

I should also mention that I’m quite excited to see this on the app store, it’ll allow the game to expand and have many more players be given the ability to discover this incredible game. I haven’t found any issues so far within the app and I was going around for a couple minutes, so from what I see it’s just as good as the original version.

The game that changed my life

Politics and War has been a part of my life for over 7 years now, and the things that I’ve learned while developing and playing the game, as well as the people within the game’s community have had a profound impact on my life. I am so proud and excited for Politics and War to be back on the App Store, and I hope you’re ready to give it a try!
