Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Artificer revealed Homicidal All-Stars today, a single-player, turn-based strategy game. The game sees players, alongside citizens and convicts, participate in the titular reality game show - which is really a bloodsport - in a bid to emerge victorious.


Homicidal All-Stars is a hugely popular sensation for a future society torn apart by extreme income inequality, rapacious corporations, climate change, civil unrest and war. As a contestant, you must survive deadly urban arenas packed with lethal traps, confounding puzzles, and heavily armed killers. Defeat your enemies, become a star, and you could win it all!

Every episode of Homicidal All-Stars delivers a hellish new obstacle course with a distinct theme and challenges. Evade and disarm traps, overcome ambushes, explore for helpful sponsorship packages, and be on guard for especially nasty surprises from the show’s director. When the mayhem is over, you’ll head backstage to rest and recuperate: record a confessional, chat with your fellow challengers and the show’s crew, then level up and customize your loadout for the next night of lethal dangers for the audience’s amusement.

Key features of Homicidal All-Stars include:
  • Challenging Strategy Gameplay: Dive into a full campaign featuring deep tactical combat mechanics that will test your skills across a variety of hand-crafted levels.
  • Create Your Perfect Squad: Build your team from a range of classes with their own skill trees, and customize their loadouts with powerful weapons, implants and utilities to take on each episode’s challenges. Level up your characters and discover unique strategic synergies to survive.
  • Face Ruthless Enemy Rivals: An array of vicious killers outfitted with heavy weapons and cutting-edge cyborg augments will force you to adapt your tactics to emerge victorious.
  • Survive a Spectacle of Gore & Violence: The heartless, bloodthirsty masses love watching players get dismembered by sadistic traps, environments and ambushes. Unleash bloody finishing moves and fiery explosions to dazzle the audience as they cheer on, but watch out for special surprises from the director, who delights in breaking the rules to keep the crowd hooked.
  • Become a Legend: Defying death through skillful play will make you a star. Grow your fame, gain new fans, and sign sponsorship deals to unlock bonus rewards to help you win the show.
  • A Classic Revenge Story: Experience over-the-top, American Gladiators-style action and attitude inspired by sci-fi epics like RoboCop, Escape from New York and The Running Man.
  • Twitch Audience Integration: Twitch streamers can invite their viewers to join the carnage, voting in real time on events they’d like to see in game. Will their beloved fans help them out in a pinch and keep the hype train rolling? Or will they choose violence and send the streamer to their doom?
Homicidal All-Stars will launch on PC via Steam and GOG later this year.

sounds like a microtransaction nightmare to me. i have to wait until games like these come out nowadays to see how they ruin them with microtransactions and online garbage. so many developers wanna "gatcha" gamers right now that everyone should be skeptical of every game.

Could be solid, but I question pairing the "high-intensity game show" vibe around turn-based strategy gameplay.
