    I said it long ago - NTwtF will be more and better "spiritual successor" than TToN.

    Oh, you can pound pavement with a party alright. Or you can go solo - your choice.

    In the bit I played I acquired a partner pretty early. Nice guy, if a bit uptight. He's the second portrait from left.

    Is Kasparov's humor going to be in the game? Because 90% of the time I don't get it. :?

    That was a great read, thanks!

    I'm extremely excited for this one. The art's brilliant, the writing seems to exude quality. Incline written all over it.

    no but seriously, I hope you are not a writer in the game because everything you write is cringy/awkward in a very unfunny way. You can't into humor, bro.

    If you read the article carefully and have put enough points in Intellect and Logic, you will be able to figure out what Kasparov's role in the production is.

    Funny thing is that compared to Marat Sar/Kurvitz, Kasparov is pretty normal :cool:

    This is bloviated to the extreme, if this is how it looks like after the changes I can't imagine how it was before. I have never seen so much hype in a preview. Hopefully it will be at least half as good as Prime Junta says because for now, after all these words we don't even know what this game is about because *spoilers*. If the plot can be so easily spoiled then it doesn't look good for replayability.

    How much for this game and why so much?

    That clears things up, I should have read full article first.

    Only thing I changed was the captions. They were bad. Plus very tiny edits here and there. I would not budge on the bloviation and gushing. It is that kind of game. And Marat Sar is that kind of guy.

    Besides, someone has to :balance: Roxor's bitter world-weary cynicism. Might as well be me, somebody else could get it wrong.

    The game sounds very interesting, and it's nice to see that kind of passion and experimentation for a change. I still don't get the whole procedural thing, though. Have they explained it somewhere?

    I like how a sort of response makes the character have more of these thoughts, and how you can embrace, hide or mix them, but the political alignment sounds like a disservice to that system. The inner thoughts and the reactivity are great tools to make the players question their choices and attitude, but I feel like the alignments detract from that by providing labels. I also found the labels themselves quite odd. Fascist and communist alignments could be interesting in a game where you rule over people, but as an individual cop, there's only so much you can distinguish, since both systems have oppressive law enforcement. The black girl example has little to do with the fascist form of government and its principles, and more to do with the modern, worn out and pointless term. Also, the "Liberal" counter should be particularly confusing to different audiences, as people are inclined to associate it with very different definitions.

    Reminder that some people will be surprised to find out about the left-leaning opinions of the devs, despite the fact that there's a picture of a guy wearing an honest-to-God flatcap underneath his headphones.

    I’m so fucking hyped, man. If this game end up being half of what it promises, it will not only be a new classic, but also a hit. You mark my words. And people still fighting to death over the mediocrity that is InXile and Obsidian.

    Also, updated my list of promising upcoming games: No Truce With the Furies, Battle Brothers, Stygian, Rise of the Elders: Cthulhu, Underrail’s expansion, A Fool's Banquet, and later on, Copper Dreams, Colony Ship game.

    Yeah I spotted other little hints like that too when I was looking carefully. The kaffiyeh. The bust of Lenin. The за победы! за труда! stenciled over the doorway.
