    I love tactics style games so I am definitely intrigued by this. I would like to see more of how the gameplay actuallly plays out, as those few brief seconds shown were not really enough to make a good assessment.

      Yeah, I think it's probably still very early in development, since there isn't any hint of a release date in that trailer, and it even just says "consoles" without specifying which ones. Bithell...

      Bithell definitely isn't the developer that I would have expected something like this from either. I was pretty sure that they were working towards some kind of narrative, conversation-based game. They put out a couple of interesting experimental games over the last couple of years that had a really neat conversation system, like Subsurface Circular.

    A tactics style John Wick game, with cel shaded graphics. This sounds awesome! Well it looked cool until I read that part.

    From the look at the short gameplay sequence at 00:38 , is this going to be a John Wick-themed Frozen Synapse ? That... might surprisingly work. EDIT: @cfabbro, thanks for the formatting notice

      Frozen Synapse is amazing... if you like cyberpunk and tactical turn based strategy in a similar vein to Syndicate, but with a time travel-esque twist, I highly recommend it. Just don't...

Just don't accidentally get Frozen Synapse Prime; It's a shitty mobile port reskin of the original game that was then ported back to PC and was made by a completely different developer.

      I have had Frozen Synapse 2 in my Library forever now too... I really should play it. :/

    I don't think I've seen such an unnecessary game in a long, long time.

      I was ready to agree with you, but based on the trailer the gameplay mechanics at least look interesting. Though, I don't play enough turn-based tactical games to know if it's offering a fresh take.
