One of the types of game that is missing on Steam in a big way is asynchronous multiplayer games. These are the games that you can play a turn, and then move on with your day, knowing that eventually your opponent will play theirs and you can come back to it later. Antihero is a perfect example of one of those kinds of games and it does a very good job of presenting a solid lobby system for matches. While the option exists to play a synchronous real time game as well, the asynchronicity is really where the game stands out. This is a solid strategy game, with enough options that you're planning out the future, but not enough to be overwhelming to strategy novices. A perfect entry game (if you're just starting into strategy), you'll be charmed by the well-done graphics, the theme, and the play. To put the finishing touch on the game is a campaign that's long enough to show you how to do most things, without sticking around too long and boring you. The game is designed as a multiplayer game, but you can tell that this campaign has been given a lot of love as well. If you want to just play the single player campaign, I'd say that there's still enough content at this price point to jump on the wagon. If you think you might dip your toe in the multiplayer scene as well, it's a no-brainer. Also, if you're looking for a multiplayer game with no toxicity, then this is it, because other than the actual gameplay, there is no interaction with the other people that you're playing with. Great game to chill out with... and the atmosphere is absolutely fantastic, held up by well-designed graphics, fantastic animations, and a sound effects board that goes with the game very well.
The game itself is rather good - engaging gameplay about stealth, set in the victorian era with board game aesthetic. It all fits perfectly, although the game itself is a rather multiplayer game like board games, other than art style it has not much to do with boardgames, since there are no dices and cards, and is more like turn based strategy game. Single player is an introduction to the game, which is a shame. Deluxe edition is only a few pounds more than the standard edition, but it includes the soundtrack, which is pretty soothing and relaxing. It is pretty good to listen and I think it is worth giving some more money to the developers since the game itself is rather good. Only disappointing thing about deluxe edition is my opinion is that there is no artbook, and with a handdrawn game it sounds like a missed opportunity and huge shame. Overall, solid game with nice soundtrack attached to the deluxe edition. Recommended.
