I'm itching, I mean truly itching to dive straight into this one, but I'll wait a tad bit more and let it stew for a bit. It really looks good to me!

It was an instabuy for me, but I don't have capacity to play it at the moment. Bit of backlog and bit of real life.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

But as you've said on the Steam forums, you can only invest so much time in one game. Any thoughts you want to share on your next effort?
Thanks screeg. Still working on Vigilantes - hope to start thinking seriously about next game soon. Looking forward to it.

Cheers Carnifex I'm going to start on some groundwork for a new game soon, but there will be some more updates for Vigilantes down the line too.

Hi all,

The sixth (and likely final) post release update is now available for Vigilantes. Here's what's new:

New Content
- Perk: Float Like A Bee - Increases armour class by 6, if no firearm or melee weapon is equipped
- Perk: Underworld Nemesis - Demoralises up to 3 enemies at the start of combat, reducing their AP and initiative
- Perk: Mobility Drills - Increases move AP by 1 for entire team
- Perk: Don't Interrupt Me - Reduces chance of triggering an interrupt or attack of opportunity by 8%
- Perk: Influential - Doubles the character's area of influence, allowing them to inflict fear and terror on more distant enemies
- Utility Item: Specialised Tools +
- Utility Item: Field Manual
- Utility Item: Advanced EMT Kit
- Weapon: General Arms Peacemaker +
- Weapon: Bar Mace +
- Added 7 new newspaper articles

Bugs & Text
- Raid difficulty now scales with time, rather than being linked to the difficulty of the tile the raid occurs on (Dorok)
- Defeating Elias Rooke now provides a single piece of high level intel
- Fixed a number of text errors (liessahl & awg)

Vigilantes is also currently on sale at it's highest discount so far (40%).

Hi everyone. Hope you're doing well. Just stopping by to tell you a little about what's been happening since the 6th post release update for Vigilantes, which is likely to be the last.

Since then, have been working on a new game. It's still very much early days, but here's some info:

1) Are you sitting down? It's a … turn based RPG. The setting is post apocalyptic, with a dash of cyberpunk. It's not the usual "Oh no, we nuked ourselves " route to the apocalypse.

2) There will be much more variety in the game. Each act will have a different setting and feel, and unique game mechanics for each act are planned. Also, the quests you undertake in each act won't just be a series of steps to the finale - the majority of actions you take will affect how the finale plays out, and its difficulty.

3) There will be far more player choice. You'll be able to avoid or reduce the difficulty of combat in many situations, but combat will still be important.

4) Would expect that all of the game mechanics will have more depth than Vigilantes. That said, some features will likely be dropped. Interrogations and non lethal combat are uncertain. Base building may be available in certain parts of the game. Everything else, particularly combat, dialogue choices and crafting will be refined.

5) Party size will likely be 3. There might be an ally or two less than in Vigilantes, but each will be more developed. It's likely each will have a set of unique abilities, rather than just one in Vigilantes.

6) I've recently completed a first pass of an enhanced crafting system. The new system is much more granular and will offer more depth and content. At the minute, I'm looking into destructible cover. This won't include terrain or buildings, but the intention is that a good part of the remaining cover will be. I can't guarantee that it will be in the game at this point, but a good part of the coding for the feature is complete, so it looks good.

Afraid I have nothing visual to show just yet, but will check in again soon!

Hey everyone.

I hope you're safe and healthy in these troubling times.

You may be aware that since completing Vigilantes, I've been working on a new turn based game. I've just posted about it here!

Glad to hear it! Inspiration wise, it draws more heavily from the 90s, but also a bit from the moderns. Terrain isn't destructible in Vigilantes, but some of the cover will be in Prometheus Wept.

Good game, well worth the money, you'll get hours of solid enjoyment out of this one. I'm due another play-through at some point, likely when I get bored with Everquest two again.
