Coming to PS4 and PS5, March 2020.

Disco Elysium is a groundbreaking open world role playing game. You’re a detective with a unique skill system at your disposal and a whole city block to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murders or take bribes. Become a hero or an absolute disaster of a human being.

Unprecedented freedom of choice. Intimidate, sweet-talk, resort to violence, write poetry, sing karaoke, dance like a beast or solve the meaning of life. Disco Elysium is the most faithful representation of desktop role playing ever attempted in video games.

Countless tools for role playing. Mix and match from 24 wildly different skills. Develop a personal style with 80 clothes items. Wield 14 tools from guns to flashlights to a boombox, or pour yourself a cocktail of 6 different psychoactive substances. Develop your character even further with 60 wild thoughts to think – with the detective's Thought Cabinet.

A revolutionary dialogue system with unforgettable characters. The world is alive with real people, not extras. Play them against each other, try to help them, or fall hopelessly in love. Disco Elysium's revolutionary dialogue system, with partially voiced characters, lets you do almost anything.

Carve your unique path across the city. Explore, manipulate, collect tare or become a millionaire in an open world unlike anything you've seen before. The city of Revachol is yours for the taking, one small piece at a time. From the streets to the beaches – and beyond.

Hard boiled, hard core. Death, sex, taxes and disco – nothing is off the table. Revachol is a real place with real challenges. Solve a massive murder investigation, or relax and kick back with sprawling side-cases. The detective decides, the citizens abide.

 

March 2021...

Finally. From what I've heard, seen, and read, this game is phenomenal. A deep, smart, and well written RPG.

I think the OP refers to Game Awards 2019 where Disco Elysium won the Fresh Indie Game Award. Helen Hindpere, the writer on the game, mentioned during the acceptance speech that the work of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels who co-wrote The Communist Manifesto provided them with the political education. The OP therefore thinks the game developers are "literal communists".

 

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I'm stoked for the game myself and will definitely pick it up.

 

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

 

Yes, this sound lame, to say the least. These "caviar leftists" (as they say here in my country) think they are part of a revolution, when in truth they are just a pawn in a cultural war.

 

And this is coming from someone who, like you, indeed plans to buy the game, as it looks amazing and enjoyable.

 

Cheers.

These inclinations go hand-in-hand far too often, it seems.

Haha, I fully expected Red Scare comments in any discussion of this game on PSNP. The game's exploration of the subject is actually highly nuanced, and not nearly as simple as "COMMUNISM ALWAYS GOOD!"

 

I didn't even mention the game, I'm talking about how the developers thanked Repin, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Viktor Tsoy, Marx and Engels in their awards acceptance speech. 
 

 

They also posted a picture of their studio and have a portrait of Stalin on the wall. So yeah, it's pretty clear what their political affiliation is.

Aren't you active in every single censorship thread lmao?

 

And me deciding not to buy a game is related to this how exactly? They can believe whatever whacky ideas they want, it doesn't mean I have to support them.

They seem like interesting folks! The furry thing is a bit weird, but who am I to judge.

I don't care about a dev's politics and/or fetishes, whatever. 

 

I do care about playing this wonderful game though. Bring it.

The writer is Estonian and the politics of the game are heavily influenced by the legacy of the Soviet Union.

 

So I wouldn't be so quick to apply the political sensibilities of the West to the game's creators.

Huh, I didn't have very much interest in this game (because I know very little about it), but communist influence is a definite plus! I'll have to look into it more. There are very few games with genuine leftist commentary to make.

I still don't understand why people think that "nazi influence" is something shamefull, but "communist influence" is something fun.. Communists killed more people and that sick ideology existed far longer than 3rd Reich. I will pray that people like Darling Baphomet will someday fulfill their dream to live under the red star and that they will finally understood how much their actions/words hurt people like me, whose familly bleed becouse of communists.
