The lights are on
Kalypso Media USA is preparing for the February 12th release of Omerta: City of Gangsters for Xbox 360 and PC, and they've sent out a press release today confirming that the game has gone gold.
Set in 1920s Atlantic City, the new title from the Tropico 4 developer places gamers in the shoes of a mob boss during the days of Prohibition. The mobster sim promises to mix turn-based combat with "strategic city-conquest gameplay." From the sounds of it, the game may have two layers in a similar manner as last fall's XCOM: Enemy Unknown. We loved the format when we were killing aliens, so a mobster game that scratches that same itch may be interesting.

I'm interested. Love the theme, and XCOM has me all fired up for strategic games.
im sorry but could they have picked a screenshot without a KKK guy in it
Being a mob movie fan, and someone who has a family history with the Italian Mafia, this'll be a fun playthrough!
I'm interested. XCOM was awesome
oh man that kkk guy took out scarface with a black wishbone oh the irony lol
I will totally play a turn-based mafia sim in the vein of XCOM. I hope it's good!
i completely agree with hang-time marchiafava
