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, GamezCheck.de, 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 am really interested in this. I still fire up "Gangsters" that I got from GOG every so often and still enjoy it. A mob strategy game is a wonderful concept. Yeah, Kalypso has a spotty track record with stabile and finished releases, but barring any complete show-stoppers I can see myself forgiving a whole lot if they get the "Godfather meets XCOM " vibe down. I think I'll wait on reviews instead of trying the demo (I only use demos to try out concepts that I'm on the fence about), but major kudos to them for releasing one at any rate.

Actually, I think most of their releases are pretty good. There are very few titles that are released without any problems at all, but I've played pretty much every Kalypso game to date and have found all to be of good quality upon release. I never played Pegasus, which even Kalypso is more than a little embarrassed (and sorry) about.

You mention XCOM: how long did it take Firaxis to fix that teleportation bug that made classic/ironman ridiculously frustrating to play? And what about that one ship where panning the camera would turn into a psychedelic circus? Kalypso is no better or worse than most respected publishers.

Word of warning though, this is not Gangsters. If you like Gangsters, I think you will like this, but the scope is definitely different. Also don't expect it to be much like XCOM (I mean gameplay, not the setting). It's a very different game.
