Vigilantes, the spiffy-looking crime-themed tactical RPG from Irish indie studio Timeslip Softworks, was successfully Kickstarted a year ago. Since then, creator Daithi Mc Hugh has been sharing development updates with us on a regular basis and the game has gathered a small but dedicated fanbase. Development builds of Vigilantes have been available to backers since the very beginning, but now the game is mature enough for a public release on Steam Early Access. Check out its cool trailer (love the accent and music) and a snippet from the Early Access FAQ:
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“We expect to complete Vigilantes in Q2 2018. Our typical release schedule is one per month, and we create 1-2 development videos in this time frame, to keep you up to date. We're highly committed to making the best game possible, so given sufficient support in Early Access, we are open to the possibility of extending development, to increase the scope of Vigilantes.”
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“In addition to improved game systems, polish, and balance, the final version of Vigilantes will include considerably more content, particularly in the following areas:
+ Many more perks
+ More weapons & items
+ More allied vigilantes
+ More dialogue based encounters
+ More crafting options
+ More combat areas
+ Trading cards & achievements”
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“The Early Access version of Vigilantes offers fully featured tactical combat, surveillance, a deep character system, base building, interrogations, and some crafting options. Currently, around 50% of the content (combat areas, weapons, items, allies, dialogue encounters) is in place. To summarise, the Early Access version as is will provide a number of hours of play time and will give you a good idea of what to expect from the final release.It's important to note that the story line is not yet complete, so you can't finish the game just yet.”
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“The price for Vigilantes will increase, though not by a wallet shattering amount, later in early access.”
