Do you have what it takes to rise to the top in the world of organized crime? Find out in City of Gangsters, a strategy-simulation game published by Kasedo Games.
City of Gangsters has you start from nothing as you build your criminal empire off the back of speakeasies and distilleries. Set during the prohibition era, you need to organize your syndicate wisely, invest in businesses, run extortion rackets, hire muscle to make sure everything runs smoothly, and bribe some officials to make sure you won’t be stopped by the cops. As your organization grows, so does your territory, and new challenges await.
City of Gangsters is available for the PC.
On the black market, social currency matters as much as the greenback. With cops and feds sniffing around, trust is everything and personal introductions are worth their weight in gold. So work your connections to find profitable new friends, and get people who owe you favors to put in a good word.
You will need plenty of hands to open new fronts, do delivery runs, and protect your product from envious rivals. Your outfit’s ambitions are only limited by the number of people working for you. Keep them paid, armed, and organized, and who knows how far and how fast you’ll rise.
But proceed carefully, because everyone is always observing what you’re doing, and family members stick up for each other. Whether you send your people to harass someone, or to help them, you can be sure they’ll remember it down the line.
As your outfit grows, convince locals that your goods and theirs will be looked after. Territory under your control will provide a safety net, an income base, and a wealth of opportunities for further growth and expansion.
You’ve grabbed the opportunity by the horns, and the city is yours for the taking. But you only have a few years to make your mark on history, to build the largest, most profitable crime syndicate, take over your competition, and rule the entire city. Because after 1933, it will be all over, alcohol will be legal again. And doing business fair and square, well, everybody knows that’s not where the real money is.
