Harebrained Schemes, the creators of The Shadowrun Trilogy and BATTLETECH, bring you an all-new world set in an alternate 1930s, where a tyrannical cult called the Banished Court stands on the cusp of world domination. For millennia, all that stood between this sinister cabal and their plans was a band of heroic scholars known as the Lamplighters League.

Unfortunately, the best of the best are all gone, so now it's up to the best of the worst.

Recruit a team of misfits and scoundrels with unique abilities and unforgettable personalities, and chase the Banished Court to the ends of the earth in a mix of real-time infiltration, turn-based tactical combat, and a character-driven story of adventure and intrigue.

Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes released the main theme song and special behind-the-scenes videos exploring the creation of the soundtrack behind The Lamplighters League.

Composed by the award-winning Jon Everest, known for his work on the BattleTech and Shadowrun: Hong Kong scores, The Lamplighters League’s captivating soundtrack amplifies the retro atmosphere and jazz-infused thrill players will experience throughout the game.
