Haemimont Games (they of Tropico 3 and 4 fame) are making use of the same engine to power a 1930s gangster-themed title, complete with outdoor city building, ‘turf’ claiming and turn-based combat sections. You can see the city management and strategic shooting bits in the developer’s latest video release, below.
It’s looking and sounding fairly swish. Minor detail it may be, but I love the art deco typeface they’re using.
Omerta: City of Gangsters should be coming to PC and Xbox 360 later this year, so prepare your best gangster name.
