Omerta – City of Gangsters Demo

Kalypso Media now offers a playable demo for Omerta – City of Gangsters, which features a pair of levels from Haemimont's upcoming gangster game. On a related note, Kalypso is partnering with Omerta, the long-running text-based MMORPG, and Omerta – City of Gangsters boxes will contain codes offering the chance to win prizes by playing Omerta. Back to the demo, it can be downloaded from AtomicGamer, DemoNews, Gamer's Hell,, Strategy Informer and Worthplaying. Word is the demo features "two levels from the upcoming Prohibition-era gangster game that mixes city conquest with tactical turn-based combat and heist planning. Grab the demo today to get a taste of Omerta, the game where it’s up to you to put together a crew of criminals and take over the city, block-by-block, through whatever means necessary."

I've been playing Omerta for a week or so (early access for a review). It's a solid, polished game and there is no reason to worry about a repeat of the bug-fest that Pegasus was.

Review is under embargo, so I can't go into details, but look for it on Hooked Gamers on launch day.

Great! Can't wait to read it!

Yep, looking forward to this (edit: the game, but I'll read your review too!). I've watched 4 Let's Play videos on YouTube (another reviewer, with permission to release the videos) and I'm worried that it will become a bit repetitive. Having a couple of dozen different building types is great, but if they're only different in name then every game is going to be basically the same.

I like Tropico, it's a good, stable and polished empire builder and I hope this is more of the same. Tropico 3 & 4 both had a problem where the early game was tough and slow (and fun!) but once you got to a point were your income was stable, it was zero challenge. I hope they've worked on that, to speed up the early game a tiny bit and slow down the late game a lot.

I trust Haemimont. Not so sure about Kalypso.
