    Tags: Timeslip Softworks; Vigilantes

    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.”
    You can grab Vigilantes now for just $12, with a 10% discount until next week. That's a real bargain, only barely more expensive than the Kickstarter's Early Bird tier. As the FAQ says, a final release is expected in the second quarter of next year.

    The game looks great, and I will buy it eventually for sure. As soon as I have money for it. (Resident of a third world country that currently earns a minimum wage here.)

    Seeing a good TB-RPG appearing on STEAM is always a good thing. What about GOG, Timeslip? You'll be trying to release there when the game is complete?

    Glad you like Drowed ! Yeah, will submit to both GOG and Humble, but it will probably be closer to the end of development - they're both picky and would like to send them a copy when its at its best.

    Yep! It's also very much inspired by the older generation of turn based games (like X-com, Fallout, Jagged Alliance), with an AP based system, and a hefty character development system which is quite similar to fallout!

    From a commercial jewgold grabbing point of view cheevos and cards are a bonus.
    I am ashamed to admit it, but IRL I have many friends who would buy cheap games just for the steam cards; If they play and like it its great. if they find it is shit hey the cards are still there.

    Oh my, I need to scrabble together some cash for this. As well, this man seems to hail from the beautiful Emerald Isle, the place of my birth ! (I'm an Ulsterman though)

    Don't really have strong feelings about either when buying games. Achievements don't bring a sense of achievement, but so long as they aren't overdone, they don't bug me either. Trading cards are worth so little for the most part, it's hardly worth the effort of selling them and authenticating the sale on the phone.

    Getting some interest on putting Vigilantes on GOG - I think there's a voting system there for what games will be added - will go and put a post up there and let you know in case you'd like to cast a vote

    I was born in Belfast, but most of my people are from County Down. Ah Donegal, have taken the train out there many a time for a spot of rest & peace. A lovely place. My favourite Irish singer, Paul Brady, is a Donegal son, so he is.

    WTF? Why? What's wrong with them? It's not as you could make more money than the game is worth with those cards....
