For those after a strategy game that certainly looks unique, We. The Revolution is bringing the blood-soaked history of the French Revolution to Linux.
Developed by Polyslash with a publishing hand from Klabater, it's going to release with same-day Linux support on March 21st.
The teaser trailer being shown doesn't really show much of what to expect, thankfully they do have an actual gameplay video from December last year which I've included below:
More about it:
We. The Revolution is a unique game with a singular art style set in the blood-soaked and paranoid world of the French Revolution, where often you could not tell a friend from an enemy. As a judge of the Revolutionary Tribunal, you will have to trudge through this setting passing sentences, playing a dangerous political game, and doing everything in your power to not to be guillotined as an enemy of revolution. At the end of a day you will also confront your decisions with your family and very often they will see it differently.
The plot of We. The Revolution will put you in morally ambiguous situations in which there are no obvious solutions, and the decisions you make are never unambiguous. The power over human life and death is a heavy burden, responsibility and strength that can affect the fate of the revolution. keep that in mind each time when passing sentence in the courtroom, while assigning tasks to your agents, giving speeches, and weaving political intrigue behind the scenes. Addressed chiefly to players who enjoy to settle moral dilemmas, make complex personal choices, and immerse themselves in the world of sophisticated political intrigue.
Note: The Linux team at GOG have already provided me with a key, so I will be taking a look as soon as it's available.
