The writing will make or break this, no matter what the combat mechanism will be.

If it's faithful to the rpg the first question after starting a new game should be "did you read the manua?". If you answer yes, the game goes blam! and exits immediately.

In other words, you should not be told anything about the mechanics and if you display suspicious knowledge, get punished.

I'd expect a lot of forms to fill in the game, no less.

Cyanide's GoT showed that they can get the source material right and make an entertaining lore-friendly story in a given universe. However, the scope of the game will inevitably be very limited, so massive incline is unlikely. Fingers crossed for moderate incline.

Paranoia could work well for a short, tightly-scoped game. What with the mortality rates, campaigns tend not to last very long in PnP either. Plus the joke gets old, eventually.

Given the state of the french video game industry the surprise is its not shittier than it is already. God kings CEO receiving massive public money subsidies . Startups with feodal management and many cases of harassment . They are employing massive numbers of trainee , talented young coders out from school paid half the minimum wage . Those young people should not ever dare to complain and rather they should praise god,be thankful they are allowed to work on video games.
Its not specific to any studio but if you look at cyanide employment offers its for 8-12 months and they dont even specify the wages anymore. Probably for an amount i wont even bother to get out of bed.
Wow, everything is shit.

Could be worse thought, they could have been modders and earn 0$ and not know programming.
