    Certainly hope this gives them as much creative freedom as possible and any other self publishing benefits for their next game (though I don't get that much of an impression Daedalic or Nordic were holding them back in any form).

    Secret project was announced about a month back but the self-publishing news is definitely new.

    I wish they would go for a sequel to Robin Hood but I think I've seen it mentioned somewhere that it won't be the case.

    I loved how you could tailor the difficulty level to your own needs in Desperados III but what has always been missing from those games IMO is a way to customize enemy view cones to your liking. I'd love it in their next game if you could change it to whatever value you want in terms of width and depth.

    Default view cones in Shadow Tactics and Desperados III must be around 50-55° and with a depth of approximately 20-25 meters. I'd love to test the game with a 90° and 35 meter view cone for example. It'd also be great to if you could choose to deactivate the striped "no detection if prone" part of the cone when it is only purely due to to distance and not to an obstacle obstructing view.

    This might of course make some parts of the game impossible but with the toolset you have at your disposal, there seems to always be a solution that you can find.

    Yeah, why doesn't everyone make the same kind of game?

    Hopefully it's the Roman-themed game they were talking about.

    Did a bit of digging and found them sort of tease it here.

    Sounds more playful than anything but hey, I don't have a problem with more interesting historical settings for a game like this. If anything, getting German funding sort of guarantees it won't be a WW2 related game by association alone.

    What's the point of self-publishing when you're being partially funded by taxpayer money?

    German taxpayer funds are given to any game project that's considered high quality enough for the government to consider supporting. It's completely hands-off: the government gives you the money, and they hope that this will support the growing video game industry here in Germany. They don't really care what you do with the game (but they do kinda expect you to keep it PG-16 and not turn it into adults only porn or gorefest). All they care about is supporting this growing industry and making Germany an attractive location for game developers.

    At least that's how it works in Bavaria, I don't know how the less civilized states handle it :M

    Well Kowloon Nights are certainly talking the talk to make a better world for gaming. Here's hoping they walk the walk.

    Here's hoping they won't go for a fantasy setting.

    I want muh historical setting, whatever it is, but Medieval or Antiquity would be great.

    Shadow of Rome has put me off ever wanting another roman stealth game.

    I think vampire hunters would be a great match for the game type.
