>>1538287Developer seems a little bit ESL but honestly it seems like the most interesting idea for a strategy game I've seen in a while.
pure unadulterated dunning-kruger ESL kino
>>1538333>"anonymus">ai generated portrait artjesus fucking christ
>>1538415>anon discovers placeholders
>>1538287Looks good.Can't wait to make a hellworld as the USA!
>>1538333>Disneymfw the mouse cabal wins the cold war
>>1538287>2024More like 2026.
>>1538333Either Disney or Ford
the core question: will a buttmad gayminence janny wipe this thread tooat any rate: I will not surrender at the doors of the capital.
>>1538333test org chads can't lose
>>1538333Where's my boy McCarthy
>>1538644he really was one of us, wasn't he?
>>1538287so I can play basically any country and they all got their own little favours?
>>1538333>No Joe McCarthySeriously?
>>1538992>>1539185Wasn't yet relevant at game start
>>1538992>>1539185He'll probably appear if (when) anti-communist sentiment takes hold in the USA during gameplay.Or some analogue of him, anyway.
>>1538333Can we assassinate Hemingway?
>>1539350You can assassinate any human actor, theoretically.
>>1538287Not giving you any more of my emotions scamdev
>>1539519bro that shit stopped being funny months ago stfu
>>1539338the screenshot is from june 1950
I will preserve Yugoslavia
>>1539601>yfw tito is literally the only actor who wants to hold yugoslavia together
>>1538374ESLs are the only ones developing new games for some reason. I assume it's because Angloid brainrot has reached a terminal stage.
>>1538533So, our timeline?
>>1539628carrying the entire species on our backs for multiple centuries has worn us down, what can I say
>>1538287I want this to come out, simply because I despise Paradox, and they really need some competition-- but I feel like this is a never ever.
>>1540179It's not a map painter. How can you compare it to Paradox?
>>1538374He's a polack>>1538287Yeah it's hard to make a good Cold War game since you don't do any real fighting aside from small proxy wars, and the actual Cold War politicking is hard to simulate. I think this game is probably going to come closest to making it fun.
>>1538287another one for the wishlist
>>1538287>historical timeline showing minute and irrelevant events>>1538333>flavour of the season characters because a Nolan movie released being portrayedThat's how you know these are mockups for a game that does not exist
>>1540431oppenheimer existed IRL you fucking retard
>>1540796how is pointing out a fucking fact ESL behaviorshould we just lie to ourselves about everything to please you? what the fuck
>>1538333I'm putting Disney in the presidency even if it's the last thing I do
What would be fun to do in an Egypt campaign
>>1541128I think you start when the king is still in charge so there's probably some fun hijinks involving Nasser and the Muslim Brotherhood to be had
>>1541128Unite the Arabs
>>1541128Create the New New Kingdom and have based retard Nasser as Pharaoh
>>1541310>In 1969, Arab nationalist military officers seized power in Libya. The ideological influence of Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser over the new Libyan government was immediately apparent. The administration was immediately recognized by the Arab nationalist governments in Egypt, Iraq, Sudan and Syria with Egypt sending experts to aid Libya's inexperienced government. Gaddafi propounded Pan-Arab ideas, proclaiming the need for a single Arab state stretching across North Africa and the Middle East. In December 1969, Libya founded the Arab Revolutionary Front with Egypt and Sudan as a step towards political unification, and in 1970 Syria stated its intention to join.>After Nasser's death in September 1970, his successor, Anwar Sadat, suggested that rather than a unified state, they create a political federation. It was implemented in April 1971 which enabled Egypt, Syria and Sudan to get large grants of Libyan oil money. In February 1972, Gaddafi and Sadat signed an unofficial charter of merger, but it was never implemented as relations broke down the following year.Immortal Nasser mod when?
>>1541796>Immortal Nasser mod whenAs easy as making Stalin immortal, at least from natural causes:Edit his HP in the files. I'm not even kidding.
>>1541807wat, have you played the game?
>>1541838I think physical objects refers to strategic resources like blueprints and uranium ore, not actorsAs much as I'd like to shoot the NYT until it dies
>>1541838still can't get over the fact that hooded horse actually funded this guy
>>1541840>"We just shot the Soviet Union until it ran out of HP"
>>1541868>you see, the soviets had a pre-set op limit, knowing this I sent wave after wave of my own psy-ops at them, until they reach their limit and shut down
>>1541840It does in fact refer to actors.
how many HP will JFK have? asking for a friend
>>15420521000 but he'll have a weakness to grass-type moves
I wonder if, as the CIA, you can help your fellow glowies in the FBI completely dismantle the civil rights movement
>>1542154A falseflag on the Washington monument?
>>1542125anon don't forget the secret backstab crit too
>>1538287Is that... a lack of censorship????HELP ME I'M GOING INSAAAAAAAAAAAANEEEEEEE
>>1542052All individual human being actors have 100HP, or at least a totally healthy one does
>>1542348>John Paul I One HP Run
>>1542154the CIA was pro-civil rights from the start though?
>>1538287So in this you play as an agency instead of the country itself? Does that mean national choices can only be influenced and outright chosen? For example, if I wanted to start a nuclear holocaust I can't just slam the nuke button right?
>>1542617The CIA is pro-CIA or pro-its masters, first and foremost. Primitive rationales don't belong in that field except where they do.
>>1542748You can influence decision-making actors, yes. I do believe you also get, as part of the country, some influence in decisionmaking such as being able to vote on budgets like every other political actor in the country
>>1542347The only thing worth reading in the discord is the Dev's commentsThe other people there are insufferable
>>1542773You'd think there would be at least some tolerable people, but it's all rabid anti-communists (the retarded kind, not the cool kind), the rare communist and liberal types who are blissfully unaware of the hellworld liberal policies are creating
>>1542617But you're playing the CIA, so you can probably change that to some extent
>>1542773>The other people there are insufferableDiscord is exclusively for annoying faggots. It's been around long enough that it should be your expectation when you hear "discord".
>>1542819There's a couple of servers I like. I just look through the most recent chat + any power roles and check for pronouns. If there are none, it's probably a good server
>>1542748You can't just slam the nuke button, but apparently you'll be in charge of making the 'DEFCON Response plans', essentially painting over 'nukes should fall here' while taking into consideration the president's input (may force the inclusion or exclusion of a target)
interesting... could I get a quick rundown on how much HP damage nukes do? also unrelated question, how much HP does tel aviv have?
Why do US states and Soviet republics show up on the map, is it just extra map decoration for the superpowers or do those countries have extra sub-national mechanics that the others don't
>>1538287Do you think the Nazi conspiracy will be in the West or East?
>>1543110>US states show up on the mapAlright, time to make the Long family the preeminent political dynasty in the United States
>>1543110Honestly it'd be a horrible simulation of the era if they didn't have the SSRs represented independently, given how instrumental stirring up ethnonationalism was in tearing apart the USSR.
>>1542779It's purely globohomo shitlibs, even the "commies" are uwu wholesome tranny commies
>>1540895He lurks vst and vrpg to call people ESLs at the drop of a hat. It's very frequent and usually in response to liking something he doesn't like.
>>1543639Oh, so he's on the other slow /v/ splinter board? What a sad individual.
>>1542347Mod? Is that for this game or another?
>>1543193Nah, there are a few ML fellow travellers in there, they just hide their power level since, well, the entire server will erupt into rabid barking if they show their power level too much.
>>1544711>ml power levelYou are a fat nigger
>>1543193>globohomo aids infected third worlder confirmed
>>1538333>Fermi>Disney>Oppenheimer>Hemingway>CamusWere they really influential enough during their time to be listed? Don't known enough about the politics of the time.
>>1545127Don't ask question you wouldn't have any real answer
>>1545005I hate californians
>>1545127Disney helped out the HUAC against some members of Hollywood, which is what "some people" have labelled Disney an anti-Semite to this day forAlso, towards the end of his life, he was borderline obsessed with making the City of Tomorrow in his EPCOT project that was basically the polar opposite of Rapture from Bioshock in that it was authoritarian, utilitarian and anti-individual
>>1545127They are in the game for the memes.
>>1545172I can't wait for the president disney screenshots on reddit
>>1539620The only one needed to.
>>1545165>EPCOT project that was basically the polar opposite of Rapture from Bioshock in that it was authoritarian, utilitarian and anti-individualThat was literally what Rapture became like 2 seconds after its creation though. The only difference is that would have actually been Walt's intention
>>1545127>Hemingway>Camushigh school english chads eating good, any other bro lit icons confirmed?
>>1546623they can barely go a single dev diary without mentioning Orwell
>>1546623High School English has better literature than University literature courses at this point. My best friend was a literature/philosophy dual major so I talked with him about the drivel they made him read.
>>1546703>High School English has better literature than University literature courses at this pointDon't worry, the university lit choices are filtering down to high school reading lists at a rapid pace. Even when I was in school I would say about a quarter of the books were pure identity grievance mongering trash, can't imagine how it is now in your average class>My best friend was a literature/philosophy dual majormy condolences. what does he do now?
>>1547405>filtering down to high school reading lists at a rapid pace.That's fucking grim. According to him they pretended the Western canon didn't exist and would get pissed if you brought it up. >what does he do now?He's a security guard for a apartment building. Has endless time to read I guess. His entire life path and education was geared towards going into academia. He wanted to get a doctorate and become a professor. I think the final straw was when he worked for the university as a tutor. He almost exclusively tutored semi-literate groids who were there on affirmative action barely scraping by the incredibly low grade requirements. Once he graduated he completely gave up. He's smart too, definitely could have done it.
>>1547734I should also add that he became friends with one of the professors in the Philosophy department, who told him his last year there that the entire department was being cut. No idea if they actually did it.
>go on the server>it's a discussion in the game channel about how China is totally communist because it pays lip service to Mao, the source of their legitimacy
>>1547831>Officer, now is not the time for unhinged rants about communists. The body is still hanging from the tree.
>>1547834SHUT UP CHINK
>>1547843>Excuse me, *what*?
>>1547878You heard me. Dance, you yellow nigger!
>>1547910>Dance? Yellow? *Nigger*?
>>1547831The discord server is shitIgnore anyone and anything that isn't the dev answering questions about the game or teaser pics and diaries, the rest is useless drivel at best and infuriating retards babbling at worse
>>1547979Occasionally there's a gem there.
>>1538333MacArthurchads we up
>>1547979They are crying constantly about people making fun of the game on /vst/
>>1555182it's a gay inside joke now, people who post it are probably from the discord
Can i suicide prouty?
>>1555182Why didn't you screenshot them bitching about 4chan being problematic because of le nazis
>>1538287For me, its Argentina.try to keep Peron in power and prevent foreign coups, keep the country in its path to industrialization and development (if that's something you can influence in the game), strenghten a South American-Third World bloc with other non-aligned countries, and eventually aid (either through military intelligence/sabotage or by infiltrating the British government) to take back Las Malvinas and having the Antarctic claims recognized by all.
>>1558893For me, it's BrazilTo kill Maradona, probably poison in his cocaine
>>1547831So the devs are insane anticommunists? Lol
>>1559020They're Czechs, hatred of communism is second nature.
>>1559104He's polish, actually. He just plays as Czechoslovakia because it's in an interesting position in the early cold war.For his credit, he manages to avoid sperging out politics for the most part. It's the fanbase his discord server has collected that's the problem.
>>1559104Funny. In the dev diaries, they said that communism/capitalism and democracy/autocracy will be a coordinate plane. So you can have eg democratic communism or autocratic capitalism.
>>1559020The dev is a polish guy that barely interacts with the inane wingcuckery his game attractsIt's weird, but refreshing to see a dev not obsessed with surface level aesthetic politics, probably why this game has a chance to be good
>>1558893>>1558980the two south american ideologies
>>1542347normal people don't like getting a hitler salute in their face
>>1559180The political compass game we needed, but didn't deserve
>>1538644He's in a better world now. Probably grinding for silver rank in the adventure guild.
>>1538415Anonymus is actually the proper Latin spelling, and the scholarly way to write it.
>>1555182There was a good time when they were posting screenshota from the thread and screaching about their being anons in the discord and a need to initiate a purge. Several of the big discord trannies were also all furry pederasts
>>1538644I'm not asking why he did it, I want to know why he stoppedthere was no conceivable way he could call it quits at the front door of moscow and live the yearwhat the fuck was he thinking
>>1559186it's pretty crazy honestly, the guy's so autistic about topics and a time period that attracts political nutjobs like flies to ointment but he doesn't show any signs of that sorta shit
>>1561266>I want to know why he stoppedFSB had his family hostage
>>1561289My bet is he's mildly conservative, guy's polish after all
>>1561266He realized he had no shot of pulling it off because nobody was joining with his men like I assume he hopedAssuming it's true that he reached some sort of deal with Lukashenko mediating, I don't understand why he wouldn't just kick back in an African country of his choosing. Of all the places he could go why would he ever return to Russia?
>>1562122I maintain that he was killed by the US or France for his role in Africa after he had official FSB security pulled thanks to his possibly drug-fuelled spergout.>Putin lost significant face by not killing Prigo when he did that weird coup thing (the obvious thing was to send a Spetsnaz or Chechen death squad into Rostov-on-Don and put a bullet in his brain)>Prigozhin was literally given an extra life by Putin>The reason Putin did this was related to Prigozhin’s role in Africa>It makes zero (0) sense that Putin would let Prigozhin live and then kill him in the dumbest possible way>If for some reason Putin let Prigozhin live after the coup and then later decided "nah, I should have killed him," he easily could have done that in Africa and pinned it on the locals because shit like that happens in Africa>If Putin was going to kill Prigozhin, there is no way he would also kill random people as well because of optics (no one would care if he killed Prigozhin alone)>Meanwhile, the US is heavily involved in this Africa situation, which Prigozhin was more or less running the enemy side of things>The US regularly does extrajudicial killings, they’ve done this for decades, in public, and often just admitted it and the US certainly doesn’t care about collateral damage>France is also involved deeply in Africa>The Ukrainians have also been doing all kinds of weird assassinations, although those were mostly blowing up random bloggers>Part of what happened to Prigozhin after the failcoup was that he had official FSB security removed from him, which left him open>The US government always blames Russia for everything that happens anywhere, they even blamed Russia for black crime, repeatedly
>>1562347How would the US or France get missiles in Tver, which is hundreds of miles from any western-aligned nation's borders? The only attacks against anywhere that isn't close to the border like Belgorod, as far as I'm aware, is the attempted drone attack in Moscow, but it's way easier to sneak a drone than a surface-to-air missile
>>1561266He was promised what he wanted-preservation of Wagner. While he could succeed in a coup, it could have easily turned into a prolonged war or ended in failure. >>1562122There wasn't any meaningful opposition either, people on the ground surrendered. He could have seized Moscow at least. There were next to no proper armed units in the way-government threw Cadets and Rosgvardia as a desperate measure. Most of units in Moscow and Oblast were non-frontline units like aa batteries and/or crewed by compulsury service soldiers. They could have theoretically used airborne forces, but they were hours away and Wagner had aa>>1562486Devil's advocate: bribe
>>1562347>there is no way he would also kill random people as well because of opticsIt wasn't random people. Actually try looking at the list of people who were on the plane. They were all high-ranking Wagnerites apart from maybe 1 flight attendant.
>Diary delayedIt's over
>>1566044This isn't the first time this has happened and probably won't be the last. Here, have a fox.
>>1566044It's GE all over again. The game is stealth-cancelled.
>>1561266>what the fuck was he thinking I said at the time: Prigozhin was totally wasted in all of those videos he was releasing at the time of his mutiny.You combine substance abuse with 1/2 Jew blood and the fact that he’d surrounded himself with mercenaries, and you’ve got a good recipe for some pretty bad behavior.It was clear with the "coup" that he made the decision while drunk and/or high on cocaine, and then sobered up the next day and was like "oh fuck"
>>1566044I've been scammed! My emotions are all gone
Imagine being an investor in hooded horse and having absolutely 0 return on your investment. The only product they have with sales is W&R which was already released for a number of years.What a joke of a publisher letting himself get scammed by all these polacks
>>1566233and people laughed when we pointed out the emotional scam
Current gameover rules.
>>1567537Any person who actually loses in a GSG game (besides the very first one or two games learning) don't deserve to even be a computer.
>>1567537>complete loss of population in nuclear warholy fucking shitimagine playing as Aussie intelligence and the USSR and America both delete each other with nukes
I hope there will be an interactive counter intelligence feature in the game, if they don't delay it to 2025 of course.
>>1567793Finally we can play as the Enclave
>>1567531Hooded Horse is basically one guy funding games he wants to play, I don't think he even gives a shit about returning a profit, its some bored former attorney from a rich family too autistic to have real rich people hobbies
>>1568621lmao you are literally just making shit up right now, reign it in you fucking virgin
>>1567793> literally Doomsday '83 timelinegod that would be so fucking funny
>>1568636This is all verifiable information, literally learn to google anything in your life
>>1568685I'm not going to waste my time googling something I know not to be true. Here's some verifiable information. You're going to die a virgin.
>>1568736I respect your ability to be so headstrong while being wrong.
>>1568621The rich stay rich because they dont spend their money or they grow their money. The other anon is right, you're a virgin retard
>>1568736>>1569091samefagging is a art
Remember: if you get colonised by Europeans and kill your oppressors, that's based and morally good.If you get colonised by Jews and kill your oppressors, that's evil and terrorism.
>>1569095>NOOOOO TWO PEOPLE CAN'T POSSIBLY HAVE THE SAME OPINION virgin
So apparently we'll be able to be democratic communists. Hopefully it'll be fun like Crisis in the Kremlin is.
>Diary delayed againIt's Joever
The Axis victory mod will be absolute kinoSo will the WoD mod
>>1571984>WoD moddamn you're right this is the one game where a WoD mod would actually make perfect sense
>Diary has no pretty pictures to keep me entertainedIt's Joever
>>1570773Gatekeeping discussion spaces to prevent them from being raided from people not interested in discussion, but just wanting to push a worldview in any space they can, is cool with me
>>1544294Not him but Victoria 2 I think
Dev died in a coke induced car crashIt's truly over now
>>1571984You're mad if you think this niche game will get big mods like that before 5 years pass.
>>1562122>I don't understand why he wouldn't just kick back in an African country of his choosing>Russian GRU can't send 10 guys to track him down and down his plane Habyarimana styleHe was a dead an walking anywhere in the world. If he wanted to stay alive, he would have surrendered to the Hague (or better yet, the US), but it doesn't seem he was that kind of person.
>>1577264sounds like you made it up, but i believe it
>>1578119>If he wanted to stay alive, he would have surrendered to the Hague (or better yet, the US)lmfao
Hooded Horse just pulled funding from Espiocracy and are weighting the option to sue, it's over

>>1582824>using discordok tranny.
>>1582824Doesn't say anything about it on the discord you lying tranny

>>1583093then prove me wrong you lying crossdesser
>>1583099>just do free work for meFuck you nigger, I don't owe you anything
>>1583106As I expected more tranny mental gymnasticsYour emotional scam has been exposed
The dev and i met on his publisher funded holiday in Ibiza, in between doing coke off of strippers he said he was still in the concept design phase
>>1587040can't believe someone would lie on the internet
>>1587040this actually happened, I was the stripper
>>1587040these kind of posts are more enjoyable than the game itself
>>1577266I only want a playable Reptilians mod
>>1587349damn, more enjoyable than a game you can't play? You set the bar really high bro
>>1587040good to see my emotional investment being put to good use
Will we be able to PVP Larry Fink (in Minecraft) in Espiocracy?
https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1670650/view/3803912974093137774>>1589248You'll be able to achieve the Middle East Good Ending with Nasser.
>>1589698Nice that we're finally getting screenshots that actually show the mechanics as they appear in gameI'm doing it bros, I'm investing all my emotions into this
>>1589849When i saw the dev in Mallorca while we were getting drunk kebabs at 430am he said that those screenshots are mostly still concept art. I asked him why he doesnt do dev diaries as a video to show shit working and he said he cant even get the game to boot thats how shit his code is.
>>1589957I'm literally shitting and crying rn...
DUDE THIS IS MY CHANCE TO SAVE THE KINO FRENCH UNION!!!
>>1589698Emotions: investedI can't wait to play Iran and start Shia proxy conflicts all over the middle east. Modern Iran has one of the most interesting geopolitical positions and there's no game that does it justice
God I hope this game comes out and doesn't suck
>>1591040>he invested his emotions Scammed
>>1559020nothing insane about being anti communist
>>1538287So is there any evidence that this game is actually a real program that turns on and not just a bunch of fake screenshots masquerading as a map game?
>>1593361No, you just have to take devs word for it since he refuses to show any footage besides a sales pitch from over 2 years ago. When confronted with this he says, and I swear I am not fucking joking, that he is too focused on making the game fun which is why he can't show any footage.
>>1593361>>1593936The dev has a plebbit account and posted this video 5 months ago https://www.reddit.com/r/godot/comments/14jmzvb/godot_meets_grand_strategy_two_years_later_few/
>>1594090Thats a video from very early on in his development and it doesnt show anything actually working, just that you can move around a map.Scammed
>>1593936I knew the dev personally in university and he would always smoke bongs and talk about big lofty grand ideas and things he could supposedly do but theyd just last until his next smoking session. Sounds like hes just gone off the deep end here i might send him some pierogi
>>1561300Or a massive hiding his power level, fantasizing about shooting all the Solidarnosc leaders. if the game includes the Vatican as a country, I just might be right.
>>1594158>if the game includes the Vatican as a countryIt does, and unless the dev changed his mind, the Vatican secret service or whatever the name is playable. I know he had claimed a small country was going to be playable but then changed this recently, so maybe the Vatican is in only as a NPC country>Or a massive [communist] hiding his power levelThe type of autist to make this game wouldn't hide their power level, specially with his whole discord being like it is
>>1538287For me, it's the complete OAS victory followed by franco-spanish falangist bourbon empire
>>1538287Was it really necessary to colour the map exactly the same colours as HOI4?
>>1600682It's a smart move.Paradox has already associated the colours with the countries, so changing them wouldn't make much sense.
System requirements just dropped, looks like even my shitty old laptop I repurposed as a makeshift media server could play this
>>1603566interesting, it's either going to run like shit no matter the hardware or be nicely optimized. I hope the late game doesn't start to lag like a paradox game
>>1600799What? He can colour them however he wants.The amount of sense it makes is exactly the same in either direction.
>>1604152Supposedly it runs quite well, if the dev is to be believed. And, apparently he's using machine learning to train the AI, so we might even have one of the first decent AIs in strategy gaming to boot.
>>1603566yes, any machine can run hopes and dreams
>>1604219Reminder that singular or small groups of autists working together was how all the great old vidya were made
>>1604201>if the dev is to be believed Scammed
>>1604201>apparently he's using machine learning to train the AIIt's fucking over
>>1604298and yet none of them were hyped up based on nothing but promises years before release
>>1604326>hyped upraf, if anything, keeps trying to minimise hype via self deprecationit's random anonymous faggots like us that've built the hype
