Tbh an open style investigation murder mystery is always cool in my book if executed well. Maybe move this thread to adventure section, but still actually looking forward to this

Standin' pretty. In this dust that was a city.
Having been supposedly stylized after medieval manuscripts, while some promo materials look decent, the main gameplay screens look like a shitty browser adventure game in flash. Now, the last thing which remains somewhat curious, is how heavily Disco influenced will the dialogues be.

There was a game that looked similar, but much better. Can't remember the title, but it had a Banner Saga style TB combat and was released relatively recently.

EDIT: Inkulinati fits the bill, but it ain't it. I was thinking about Pendragon, but it obviously doesn't look as good in reality as well as in my memory. Rising Lords is another one, but looks like Battle Brothers with higher production values. Marginalia Hero is probably the most authentic looking of the bunch, despite being a cheap mobile game. Maybe even because of it, since it has such a limited scope.
