Mimimi productions created a redux of real-time tactics, like Commandos 2 - Men of Courage (2001) in their game, Shadow Tactics - Blades of the Shogun (97% favorability rating / 85% Metacritic).
Now their next installment Desperados III is now in closed beta for release this year (in 2019).
It looks good. If you like the real time stealth of Hitman, then this is birds-eye-view Hitman. I think that they even include more social stealth elements in this 2nd installment of their real-time tactics game.
Because of its birds-eye-view and not first person, you can control multiple characters at once, and can spot most of the enemies movements at once too. In most of the missions you have to execute actions with multiple characters, each with differing abilities. Enemies have view cones and you have to time your actions carefully. There was a really well done overarching story to the 13 missions. The missions are also replayable with differing objectives to complete, including speedrunning objectives.
I want the Mimimi Productions to sell well with this game, because no other game company so far generates video games like this one (I hear Kalypso has bought the rights to the Commandos series).
Anyone else excited for this one?
