Here, see what I mean:
Empire of Sin - a character-driven strategy game set in 1920s Chicago - will be coming in 2020.
This exciting strategy game from Romero Games and Paradox Interactive, puts you at the heart of the ruthless criminal underworld of Prohibition-era Chicago. It’s up to you to hustle, charm and intimidate your way to the top of the pile and do whatever it takes to stay there. As a player, you’ll be smack-dab in the glitz and glamor of the roaring 20s, giving you a chance to thrive in the gritty underbelly of organized crime.
Personally, this doesn’t look like my cup of tea… or whatever they’re serving in those cups… but I’m always going to support attempts to take strategy games in bold new directions. And prohibition-era gangsters? That’s a direction and an era that video games haven’t done nearly enough to explore.
So while you might not get my money, Paradox, you’ll at least get my endorsement. Unless we find it out sucks. Then I’ll retract it.
