Empire of Sin - New strategy game made by Romero

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

i'm surprised this hasn't popped up here yet, considering a trailer dropped of it a few days ago.

 

 

it looks like a strategy game similar to XCOM in terms of design, set in 1920s era Chicago. no idea if this is related to the "Blackroom" project that had a failed Kickstarter campaign, but probably not. it has some sort of reward system on its site, where if enough people subscribe to their newsletter, more features will be added into the game.

Brenda was one of the peeps that worked on Jagged Alliance 2, I think.  This looks cool.  Hopefully it'll be something similar to a Gangsters: Organized Crime.  That'd be fucking amazing.

 

Edit: Holy shit.  From the description it looks like it'll be extremely similar.

Brenda Romero yes. He's just there doing stuff like promotion. Without the Romero name I couldn't imagine this game going anywhere. It looks forgettable and I hate to be so stiff to JoMero. The trailer failed to sell me and I like that genre and theme. Needs to show me what I'm doing with that city instead of just the map.

 

It could be a new step for Jagged Alliance fans, but many of them are lifers.

Same. Although i'm not into strategy games all that much, it might be kinda neat. Definitely need to see more gameplay though first imo.

 

For reference Age of Empires II (the HD version) and Warcraft III were the only strategy games i think i've ever played with a little bit of C&C: Red Alert years after they all came out.

Pretty certain it will be less like that type of strategy and more the type you got in X-Com Enemy Unknown with its turn based combat.

Crime Syndicate Wars!  Not much to go on, but I like the general idea.


If it could bring back the feeling of the original Syndicate it would be great. I don`t know how many hours I spent mind-controlling whole citys. :)

Yeah i agree. I was just stating that i've never really played many strategy games besides those types. Sorry about that haha! I've definitely heard of X-Com before (who hasn't?).

You might also like Satellite Reign. It was made by the original developers.

There are some screens on the website. 

 

I really like the style. It's detailed enough without looking bland but it doesn't go overboard with small little details that make the gameplay environment harder to read (a common problem in AAA games).

Wow thanks. This looks exactly like it was made for me. ;)

Time to visit Steam again after years of not using it...
