I was a big fan of Troika too. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines was pretty fantastic. And spooky at times. I always marveled at how my character was an epic vampire and here I was running around freaked the heck out by a haunted mansion. ^_^
Arcanum...I would kill to have a sequel to that. We really lack roleplaying games (or adventure games) that really have that Steampunk feel to it. And Steampunk is so popular these days...what gives?
But yeah long live Dead State! I do kinda wish they would have a few "pretty" female character portraits though. They all kind of look like female dwarves from what I have seen so far. Haha.
