Vincent Leong (a.k.a. FuriousGamer87) writes in to announce Street Posse Showdown, a strategy RPG he’s developing that takes place in a contemporary, crime-ridden urban setting.
As it is with every city, crime is unavoidable in Oaksville, but the situation has gotten worse over the recent years. It was bad enough that most of the wealthy residents have left, fleeing for greener and safer pastures. Without the income or taxes from those people, the city cannot afford to maintain the size of the existing police force. Therefore, with great pain, they downsize the cops to less than a quarter of their previous number.
Without most of the cops, the crimes have increased and the situation on the streets has gotten more chaotic as various groups struggle for dominance. At present, whatever your past and reason is, you have decided to fight back with a group of people dissatisfied with the current situation. How will you fight? Whom will you let into your posse? And what future will you decide to pursue?
I confess, I’m a little leery about that law-and-order plot premise, but still: tactics! The trailer shows off the game’s systems a bit:
Among the game’s listed features:
- Mission-Based Gameplay.
- Large Amount of Forces.
- Distinctive Elemental Attributes.
- No Permadeath But Enjoy Your Injuries.
- Replaceable Techniques.
- Randomize Recruits.
- Single Player Story-Based Campaign.
- Changeable Clothing.
Leong states that he’s completed all the core features for the game, and that content and assets are all that remains to be finished.
If you like what you see, feel free to go vote for the game over on Steam Greenlight.
Street Posse Showdown is planned for Windows release in late 2016. In the meantime, there’s a free alpha demo available for you to try out; Windows only.
