Hopeless Dregs is a turn based game with RPG elements. In a world full of evil there will be destiny of a team of hopeless dregs in your hands. Find their strengths and weaknesses to unleash full potential!

quote:

For the price, I find it hard to be overly critical. The game seems heavily inspired by battle brothers: It tries to start off with that feeling of hopelesness and promise you that it will be merciless towards the characters you hire. When you start recruiting the unremarkable peasants, you level them up and get to chose which abilities you want to improve. Again, very similar to BB.

I know it's not entirely fair to compare this to a game that cost twice as much, but the similarities are difficult not to notice and I honestly don't mind the inspiration, but when you make the comparison, BB still wins at the end of the day, I'll try to summarize the game:

I haven't seen a game like this. It's a tabletop D&D style dice game, but on computer. I like that I can play separate saved games. It feels like this game could have endless variations with the different levels & boards and single or multi-player options. The monsters and monster cut scenes have a cool Mortal Kombat feel. The video ad for this game is hilarious. I love the old-school touches.

It sort of looks like it is to The Quiet Family what Deadly Premonition was to Twin Peaks.

For people who don't know, The Quiet Family is a Korean film from the 80s about a family who runs a bed and breakfast and guests end up dying and the family spies on the guests and all sorts of weird (and hilarious - it's intended as a black comedy) stuff happens, like for example at one point they have more dead bodies than they know how to deal with (etc.).

It's not the same thing as this trailer (just like DP isn't the same as Twin Peaks, just very obviously influenced by it) but watching the trailer for this game immediately reminded me of that film.

I've been playing quite a bit of First Class Trouble the last few days.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/953880/First_Class_Trouble/

It's one of those Among Us / Town of Salem 'who's the bad' games. Group of six people are on a ship that's crashing or something, I dunno. In that group, there are two "Personoids", AI that you need to kill before they kill you. You go through three levels, which are made up of a subset of different maps. Really though only the second level is ever a different map. You vote on who is sus between levels like most of these games.

The game itself is janky. Sometimes menus don't interact correctly. Grabbing people to do the murders can gently caress up and then it all breaks down into chaos since you either missed the Personoid, or you just revealed yourself and now everyone wants to kill you. That said, the online portion works great. No desyncs, games start in about 10 seconds, and the voice chat is clear.

I've found the community to be pretty fun. Skews to an older crowd which I appreciate. Smallish number of people so I've run into the same folks a few times which isn't a bad thing. Most everyone has had good mic control. No one screaming in the back or working in a steel mill. I've only had one or two games where there was an rear end in a top hat and that's easy enough to rectify with an ejection or murder.

All around it's a good time, especially for the price. Highly recommended.
