This game called Espiocracy feels like the exact game I've been waiting for, at least by the premise. It's a Cold War grand strategy, but with a focus entirely national intelligence. Making my own conspiratorial alternate history by lying to the public? Playing out 20th-century America-style imperialism? Hell yeah that sounds like fun! I'm anticipating what will happen when this new studio gets into the grand strategy arena currently dominated by Paradox. Not that they don't make decent games, but they really like to exercise their stance as the major publisher of the genre by half baking the product and selling the rest of it as DLC.
Just so you don't get the wrong impression, I am the worst grand strategy player in the world. I love the idea of the genre, and I've tried to play EUIV and CKII countless times, but all I do is flounder like a fish out of water. I did okay with Stellaris because it was much more approachable, but I'm not that into sci-fi games.

Pentiment looks like it will either be fantastic or total shit depending on who's writing the story. Either way, the concept is interesting and I've got my hopes up. There aren't enough non-strategy historical games and what they're released so far looks incredibly promising.

Scorn and Routine have also finally graduated from vaporware status. I don't really have any expectations, but they both look they'll be worth checking out for the visuals alone.
