Last 2 days on Kickstarter!
Release date: May 2017

Inspired by the classic turn based strategies of the 90s, Vigilantes is a compelling, crime themed, turn based tactical RPG with an old school heart. Assume the role of Sam Contino, an idealist dragged down the rabbit hole of vigilantism after intervening in a violent mugging. In Sam's crusade against crime in the declining city of Reiker, you will:
  • Lead a team of Vigilantes in tense, turn based tactical combat against 3 distinct gangs.
  • Take down criminals with bone shattering melee attacks, a variety of firearms, and explosives.
  • Run surveillance operations to locate the criminal threat.
  • Develop your character with the in-depth UPLIFT system.
  • Locate and recruit other vigilantes operating in Reiker City.
  • Purchase or liberate a wide variety of weapons and equipment.
  • Craft special items, such as high damage, hotloaded ammo, armour, and advanced medical items.
  • Experience a compelling story, supported by quality artwork and voice acting.

Vigilantes is currently on Kickstarter, with some great rewards, including a substantially discounted Steam Key, Digital Download and Beta Access package. If you'd like to get the best price in the house, and support a hard working indie team, you can check out our Kickstarter campaign by clicking on the above image.

Challenge your tactical abilities by engaging an overwhelming enemy in tense, turn based combat. Take down criminals with choreographed, bone breaking hand to hand combat, and melee weapons ranging from a ball peen hammer to a deadly katana. If you're more of a gunslinger, stick to cover and trade lead with your foes using pistols, close range burst fire SMGs, shotguns, assault and precision rifles. If things get too hectic you can always break out the explosives...

A preview demo, the result of well over 4,000 development hours, is currently available for you to try. The Vigilantes preview demo has around 3 hours of game play, and a near final level of polish. The preview demo is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. If you'd like to check it out, just click the above image and select the relevant platform.

Vigilantes allows you to customise your team to your play-style. The UPLIFT character system is comprised of 6 core stats, nine crime-fighting skills, and a wide variety of game changing perks.

With the UPLIFT system, character level is increased by using skills, rather than by gaining XP. Every time you gain a level, you gain an additional stat point to allocate.

Always out-numbered, often out-gunned, you must adapt to face over fifteen enemy types across three criminal gangs: the numerous, melee orientated, cult-like Church of the Final Exodus, the Survivalists, an elite paramilitary group of highly trained shooters, which more closely resemble an army than a street gang, and the Mafia, a balanced, insidious enemy, which excels at keeping its activities hidden.

A pair of enforcers stand guard outside a meeting between the Mafia and high ranking city officials.

A Church of The Final Exodus coven caught in the middle of a bizarre ceremony, lead by a fanatic.

A new wave of Survivialists ready to wreak havoc on Reiker City.

Trade punches with heavyweight Mafia Enforcers, outmanoeuvre stalking Survivalist Sharpshooters, and take down crazed, explosive wielding, Church of the Final Exodus Fanatics.

Before launching tactical missions, you must run surveillance operations to locate criminal activity. Low level criminal activity can be located with limited surveillance, however, in order to put a gang out of commission, you must locate and dismantle well-hidden facilities and the gang's leadership.

You don't have to take on the criminal underworld alone. A number of allies can be found on the dark streets of Reiker, including hard-boiled private eye, Ray Case, Reiker City Police Lieutenant Emilia De Soto, and Elena Furey, who is hunting down Survivalists for reasons of her own. Once found, allies can be called in to help in tactical missions. You can find a voiced introduction video for each of these allies in the videos section, at the top of the page.

Wield baseball bats, fire axes, close range, burst fire SMGs, precision rifles, shotguns, incendiary grenades, smoke grenades. Kit out your team with crafted armour, advanced medical devices, and create specialised hot-loaded ammunition which causes increased damage. Don't forget to repair your equipment after combat, to prevent firearms jamming, melee weapons breaking, and to maintain the protective qualities of your armour.

Hi Cheox. Thanks for the kind words! We're very grateful for all the support, take our obligations concerning crowdfunding very seriously, and we won't let our backers down. We've been working on Vigilantes intensively for almost 2 years - abandoning it isn't even an option - it would make the last two years the biggest wasted effort in our lives. Rest easy - it flat out won't happen!

This game has so much potential. I see it as a mix of The Warriors with Xcom. please dont frak it up!! Devs, be loyal, take good care, listen to your backers and don't abandon it. You have a small jewl here.

Hi omegakill. Thanks for the suggestion for giving up a turn to get an immediate AP reward - it made it into Vigilantes as the Adrenaline perk. Glad you like the demo so far, we're hoping to release the biggest ever update after the Kickstarter campaign!

I've spoken to the dev who is happy to accept feedback (some of it critical) which I think bodes well as a developer that is willing to listen to feedback means a better game and you can start to see just how much hard work has been put into this game so far.

The game itself plays pretty good so far, and with further updates bringing more things into the game it's only going to get better.

I'm really looking forward to this game coming out.

Hi Musa. Thanks for the question. Right now, we are only certain about English - it is difficult to tell at the moment if it will be translated to other languages
MuSa Oct 20, 2016 @ 12:31am 
What languages will Vigilantes be in? English only? It will be translated into Spanish?
