neoliberal crime squad? That could be interesting. I wonder what it will be like, I know it is at least a theme swap.

Neo-liberal as in "new", or neoliberal as in the ideology?

Holy shit, welcome back!

Is this going to be a modern version of LCS or something? LCS could use some new material, since it's kinda outdated politically.

Thanks everyone. It's all warm and fuzzy to be welcomed back. ^_^

I had a feeling the filename wouldn't slip past undetected.  ;)

Neo-liberal as in "new", or neoliberal as in the ideology?

Absolutely meant to be both.

Is this going to be a modern version of LCS or something? LCS could use some new material, since it's kinda outdated politically.

Definitely modernized:



With some alternate history mixed in, to make playing as a crime squad aligned with the existing world order more plausible:



It turns out doing a total conversion of LCS is A LOT of work, and there's still a ton of stuff yet to do before it's ready. I kind of wanted to wait to say anything until I was done, but the work so far has been exciting enough that I couldn't resist sharing a few pictures. :3

I don't want to go into too many details until it's closer to finished, but the overarching concept is that, rather than just reskinning the existing political system, I want to place the new crime squad in the center of the political chart with enemies on both sides of the spectrum opposing you.

So... Moderate Crime Squad? Sorta? Since you're in the middle and all. Or would that be Centrist Crime Squad?

I'm excited now.

Knowing my past experiences with the first LCS, I'll probably mess up here, but all the same, I'm excited now.

I'm torn between overjoyed shock at your return and vomiting slightly at the thought of fighting for neoliberalism.

It lies. It seeks to deceive you. It breeds terror to manipulate you. But it's not true. What it shows you is a lie.
Yes, be afraid. But stay perceptive. Move with intent. Control. Focus.
Or else it will fool you.

That's what everyone says, before their parents die and leave behind...



Enough of this left-wing nonsense! You're the 1% now. Time to start a proper crime squad befitting a proper ideology.
