NYC Mafiosi

New York City, 1929: welcome to the height of the American Prohibition. The Five Families have cornered the illegal liquor distribution in all five boroughs of the city. Your father, the Don of the Leonesi Family Mafia, is assassinated on the street: inheriting the crown, it is now up to you - as boss - to restore the supremacy of your Family and take back the streets that you used to own. Capo di tutti capi.

The city is corrupt from the inside out, however. The Politicians run the show, and you're going to have to keep them on-side if you want to succeed. Liquor distribution may be illegal, but nobody is gonna stop you if they're taking a cut of your profits. Bribery is only part of the game, but money goes far - and allocating it is a skill.

Start shooting up the streets, however, and you'll soon find yourself involved with a lot of unnecessary attention from all sides - especially the City Police - so you're going to have to be subtle with violence, if you want to make money.

Similarly, keeping your public satisfied is crucial because they're your main source of income. If you want to maintain those huge alcohol profits, you need to look after your community: violence on the streets will reduce the people's respect for your Family, making you less money in the long-term.

Keeping your districts stocked up with alcohol, to meet demand, is the most important thing of all - your liquor crates are ordered and shipped into the city Sea Ports at night by boatload, which means keeping a level of respect with the Dockers Unions that run operations on them. It's a thirsty town.

Your Family, the Leonesi Mafia, run Staten Island - the least-prestigious and smallest borough in New York City. Building up your districts, shipping crates of liquor, upgrading the quality of your alcohol, arming your mobsters on the street, maintaining your city connections, and going to war with the four rival Mafia Families are all part of your journey towards owning the entire city and achieving the title of Boss of all Bosses.

Victory 129 days! :D fkin bought out everyone! ya meee!

It was a great game but still the npc's just doesn't care sometimes.
i payed a lot of money to the ferocini's and they still attacked me
please fix this

I don't see anything to stop you from buying out a family in one day... Other families could maybe react to this, feel threatened? They don't. Player just repeatively hoardes money, starting with bribing press over 50%, and consequently bribing all city to 100% respect, safely upgrading areas and alcohol.
Other families don't seem to do anything remarkable at this point.
The fact that whole city shares your reputation is kinda unrealistic, I expected that when I buy out or shoot out a family, people of their former terrain will be suspicious.
The fact that the liquor doesn't firstly go to the most dry district is also not cool. They should be distributed that the engine tries to leave every district with same stock, so starting with the lowest numbers.

Would make to decent multiplayer.

i liked it a lot! the savegame function made it possible to "pause" the game when i had to leave for work and resume it now.
the possibility to skip the videos and the "flying in" effect of the popups would've speeded up the game a little bit.
all in all very nice and you really captured the right music for the "mafia feeling".
