The Lamplighters League: Xcom + Indiana Jones by Battletech devs

Between Lamplighters, Wayfinder, Nightingale, and probably some others I’m forgetting, there are some cool period games in development.

So some folks have gotten a chance to preview this, and my hype-o-meter is all about it.

I think they basically got to do the tutorial section of the game, and I’m intrigued as all heck.

(Tutorial level spoilers, obviously)

Just noticed Odd had this video up. Going to watch it this evening.

This game looks really polished. Not sure about the open world real-time and amount of stealth… But it looks really good

So October 3rd according to my Xbox app? I still need to spend more time with Jagged Alliance 3, and pick up Baldur’s Gate 3. Plus Starfield is tomorrow. It looks to be a great Fall for gaming.

I advanced ordered it from Green Man, although it is not the type of game I normally play. Demo out today, the 28th. Unusual for Paradox. I think they have a large amount of confidence in the game. We will see if it is warranted.

I hope this is awesome, but I’m pinching pennies, gp sub lapsed, and I have little time to play anyway.

@Nightgaunt I wish that project of yours would make a surprise comeback. I’d play the heck out of that. Reminds me of the ttrpg TORG, which is a great thing.

I don’t have a strong love of the 1920s-1930s interwar serial look (I’d probably be happy with more Shadowrun) but I’m all in on Harebrained Schemes, so happy to jump into this one!

This looks really cool, but I’m not feeling any excitement about this game for some reason. I think maybe I’m burned out on ‘X-COM likes’, if that’s a thing.

I’m feeling the same way. Between GalCiv IV coming out of EA this month, plus the imminent releases of Hexarchy and Star Trek:Infinite, I feel this can wait for a real deep discount.

How about a 1920s/1930s Shadowrun?!?!

Think that already exists and is called “Lovecraftian” ;).

This is a character failing.

Indeed, I have many! My favorite scene from the Rocketeer though is when the gangsters turn on the Nazis, so hopefully I’m still redeemable.

The committee of arbitrary triggercut nonsense have ruled in your favor here. ;)

I’m fine with that. Now, if you say that you also enjoy the president’s “Independence Day” speech in the movie that goes by the same name, that’s where I draw the line! ;)

Early reviews look iffy. An Xbox review mentioned that the game could be pretty great, but that there were a bunch of bugs in the xbox version.

Oh come on! It’s one of the great American presidential speeches! Up there with the Gettysburg Address, We Go to the Moon, and American Carnage.

On a serious note, I’m unable to download the Steam demo due to a license error. Hopefully they get that fixed soon, I’d like to check this out.

Have the same steam demo issue. Apparently the demo is working on epic, but haven’t tried downloading it myself

ACG’s review is “wait for a sale” - he said the game is really enjoyable but there were a number of technical issues, and he felt it needed some optimization.
