This new turn-based game from the creators of BattleTech is inspired by Indiana Jones and XCOM


Announced at today’s Paradox Interactive Showcase, The Lamplighter’s League is a turn-based squad tactics game like XCOM or Fire Emblem, paired with a pulpy 1930s world reminiscent of Indiana Jones. Developers Harebrained Schemes had previously made the underrated Shadowrun RPGs (opens in new tab), some of the first in the new wave of great CRPGs we’ve been seeing since the 2010s.

The Lamplighters League’s first trailer shows off a femme fatale, slippery rogue, and burly Brendan Fraser-in-the-Mummy type stealing an ancient artifact before tangling with some definitely-not-Nazis complete with gas masks and stormtrooper helmets. Harebrained says they’re “The Banished Court” in an “alternate 1930s,” but I say if the jackboot fits, wear it. The Lamplighters League will see your quirky squad of misfits travelling the globe to thwart these ne’er-do-wells, complete with an Indiana Jones travel montage-style world map.
