Interesting.
Will be curios about the future reviews.

We. The Revolution, a unique looking strategy game set during the French Revolution will be on Linux

Purple Library GuyIncidentally, a little known piece of context about the Terror: It didn't actually execute more people than were normally executed in France before the revolution. The pre-revolution French state killed a lot of people, usually in ways that were a whole lot more gruesome and painful than the guillotine. Basically torturing to death as judicial penalty. It's seen as such a huge deal because the people killed during the Terror were important people instead of being mostly peasants and the urban underclass, and because they were killed for political reasons instead of for, say, stealing a loaf of bread or not paying their taxes or annoying somebody higher status or whatever.

Which isn't to say the Terror wasn't real. There is a definite difference between something like the Terror and the state killing people as part of the normal operation of the machine, just sort of grinding off bits of humanity that grit the gears--people don't like that, but they know the score: If you're poor, and you're trying to make a living by whatever means necessary, you run certain risks. If you're a peasant, and your local noble is an asshole (as most of them were), you run certain risks. It was the game as they knew it. The thing about the Terror is it changed all the rules, and people who had previously assumed themselves to be safe, people who had previously assumed the state was more or less on their side, could suddenly be killed for things that had been perfectly OK, even the basis of respectability, a year ago. That's going to lead to some fear and paranoia. It's just that people tend to think of the Terror in terms of unprecedented numbers killed, and it totally wasn't that.

Ok , I am almost about to put money on the fact that you are a history major.

This thing is giving me Orvwell vibes and I stayed up till 4am to beat that game.
I hope it has a story at least as good.

razing32I hate trailers that tell me nothing of the game. :-|

Yeah, that was weird. But may be they don't even know how it will look since it's in the very early design phase? They only announced the project, not some release or anything the like.
I think it's at least partly that they're assuming if you don't already know what Axis & Allies is, you're not likely to buy it. The audience for this is fans.

Fair enough i suppose.
I would still attaract new players to it
Boardgame looks interesting and probably goes smoother in virtual format.
LOL'ed they had a zmobie version of the board game. Zombies truly are like the salt of video games. Just put it on everything.

Barotrauma, a co-op submarine adventure set on Jupiter's moon Europa is promising, has a demo
12 February 2019 at 8:33 pm UTC

Hmm.
There was another submarine co-op game mentioned on GOL a while back . Think Samsai played it as well.
But it lacked polish and a tutorial.
Hope this fares better.

Hmm. Is the DLC standalone or a mission you play during the main campaign ?

WorMzyI'm sure some people will enjoy this, but I can't see the point of shoehorning MP functionality into a classic SP game. Then again, I don't see the point of TES Online/Fallout 76 either.

Lots of people wanted to play a kind of co=op with friends.
Nobody wanted an MMO as far as I could understand it but lots of people wanted to be able to play with a few friends.
