They aren’t Heroes. They’re ‘Vigilantes’. Neo-Noir Turn-Based Tactics for PC, Now Available on Steam

Timeslip Softworks LTD is pleased to announce that after 4 years of development, Vigilantes is now available on Steam. Vigilantes is a turn-based tactical RPG, but not as you know it. Forget wizards, aliens, and zombies. Become Sam Contino, a conscientious citizen dragged down the rabbit hole of vigilantism. Hit the rainy, lawless streets of Reiker with a crew of hardened crime-fighters at your back. Assist citizens in distress, and use your skills to get the drop on enemies before the first shot is fired. Take down psychotic mob assassins and molotov wielding cultists in fully-featured squad and action point based combat. Interrogate your way up each gang’s chain of command. Confront their leaders. Burn their rackets to the ground.

Each enemy has a name. Choose to subdue criminals, or use lethal force and add that name to the city obituaries, but beware: your choices have consequences and indiscriminate killing will lead Sam and the city down a darker path. If the fight isn’t going in their favour, criminals may attempt to flee. If they escape, they will become more powerful and you’ll have to deal with a bigger problem down the line. Outside of battle, spend time treating injuries, crafting weapons and armour, or upgrading your base of operations. Forge the ultimate crime-fighting team with the UPLIFT character system. Allocate your team’s primary attributes, determine their innate skills, and choose from over 60 perks.

This trouble isn’t going to take care of itself. Deal yourself in. Hit the streets. Take back your city.”
