The project is a real-time tactics game called Codename Süßkartoffel.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun and Desperados 3 developer Mimimi Games is working on its next game. It will be another real-time tactics title and will be co-founded by the German government as part of the official games industry grant. It’s currently referred to as Codename Süßkartoffel, which translates to “Codename Sweet Potato.”
Obviously, this isn’t the final name for the project. Instead, it’s an internal codename and follows from Desperados 3 being referred to as “Potato” by the team during its development. One big change that’s happening with Codename Süßkartoffel is that it will be entirely self-published by Mimimi Games, with the company taking “full control and responsibility” for it.
The developer will also be expanding from 30 to 40 team members next year to facilitate development of the new game. So for all intents and purposes, Codename Süßkartoffel is very early in development. We’ll have to wait for more details, including its target platforms, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out our official review of Desperados 3 here.
