Vigilantes Released

Tags: Timeslip Softworks; Vigilantes

Vigilantes, the groovy modern day crimefighting tactical RPG from Timeslip's Timeslip Softworks, went out of Early Access today - a day earlier than expected. It must be a scary thing releasing an indie RPG right on the heels of September Madness, but Timeslip has done his best, even going through four iterations of the launch trailer before he was satisfied with the result. It's similar to the Early Access trailer from last year, but offers more of a look at the game's systems and also some dialogue (including skill checks!). I'll post the trailer here along with the description from Steam:



Vigilantes is a combat focused, turn-based tactical RPG set in the declining, crime riddled city of Reiker. The game offers hardcore squad-level combat in a gritty neo-noir setting, intel gathering through surveillance and interrogation, a detailed character system, base building, crafting, and much more.

Key Features
  • Party-Based Tactical Combat System, including lethal and non-lethal attacks, powerful perk-based activated abilities, attacks of opportunity, cover, aimed and special attacks.
  • Deep Character System: build the ultimate crime-fighting team using the UPLIFT system which comprises 6 stats, 9 skills and allows for a variety of viable builds. Further customise your characters with over 60 perks.
  • Gather Intel: Run surveillance and interrogate defeated enemies to locate each gang's leadership and facilities.
  • Adversary System: If an enemy manages to flee, they will become more powerful and you will have to face them again later. Take them down quick!
  • Reactive AI: An enemy that reacts to your actions, by setting up ambushes, and is responsible for recruitment, building facilities, improving gang equipment and training.
  • Crafting: Upgrade weapons from 9 distinct classes and craft special items, such as hot-loaded ammo, armour, and medical items.
  • Base Building: Build and upgrade 5 facilities (gym, library, firing range, surgery, workshop) to gain bonuses and access advanced crafting options.
  • Story: Experience the hard-boiled story of a group of vigilantes waging war against the overwhelming might of the criminal underworld. Gain advantages in combat through skill checks and choices in dialogue, and help out citizens in need.
There's plenty more information about Vigilantes in Timeslip's vast archive of development update videos. If you're looking for a tactical RPG that's unique and also cheap, you can grab it on Steam for just $15, with a 10% launch discount until next week.
