All In The Game: Crime Strategy Videogame

Many might not remember a 90s strategy game called Chaos Overlords, where players had to lead a criminal organization by hiring mercenaries to conquer territories and become the city’s leaders. Well, the game I’m introducing to you today immediately reminded me of the mechanics of that title.

All In The Game: Crime Strategy

The game in question is called ALL IN THE GAME: Crime Strategy, and even if the graphic style is completely different, the mechanics seem quite similar as it is a turn-based strategy game that immerses players in the gritty underworld of crime. Developed and published by Strangelet Games, this strategy game tasks players with managing and expanding a small street gang into a dominant criminal empire.

Players engage in various illicit activities such as robberies and black market deals to earn money, which can be laundered through investments in semi-legitimate businesses. The game emphasizes strategic decision-making, with players choosing between different paths, such as cooperating with authorities or becoming infamous outlaws.

The game’s mechanics include recruiting different types of criminals, engaging in turf wars, and expanding territories. Multiplayer modes support both online and hot-seat play for up to eight players, making it a competitive and fast-paced experience. ALL IN THE GAME is available in early access on PC via Steam, with plans for additional features and content. Below is an overview of the game, screens, and a gameplay overview video.
