    From Belgium based studio Warcave. Seemingly based on their own city Ghent.

    The waves of turn-based RPGs do not stop.

    Typical SJW fare, putting some black "legend" in a 17th-century west-European city smh.

    What's the point of advertising it as "17th century" if you are going to dump your derivative fantasy shit in it?

    I'd wager too lazy to study actual history and make something that's not derivative fantasy.

    It seems a bit counterintuitive to set the game in a city and then make it combat-focused, but we'll see.

    It doesn't advertise it as "17th century"; they are actually fairly specific in saying that the city is inspired by 17th century architecture and that the alchemy is based on the ideas of the 17th century. They might be too lazy to study history, but you're too lazy to even read.
    Urban combat is best combat. Rural and wilderness fighting is just a hassle and would probably devolve into open warfare and plunder. Here we get to run around and shoot things in the city and have good excuse to stab things to death because the guns are shit.

    Still seems like a waste of a city setting. Would be so much more exciting with a focus on stealth, thieving, court politics and spying on occult conspiracies, especially given the 17th century inspiration.

    The voice-muffling effect gives the stream an ASMRish quality.

    It seems this is yet another game where they originally just called it a strategy game and tacked on "RPG" relatively recently. Cool-looking pikemen.
