Plot

Mafiosi: Cosa Passata is the fourth kinetic novel about a mafia family known as the Gallos. The story is told through the eyes of the men and women of the Gallo family, who range from the ages of 28-36, as the battle for control over the five families of the New York criminal world reaches a peak.

WARNING: If you have not read the first 3 novels in the series, it is crucial that you do so before reading the following spoilers:

The story begins by tying up the loose ends of the initial trilogy (in a rather unconventional way)… by diving deeper into the Gallo family’s history. When the story *does* pick up in the year 2006, a lot has changed for the survivors of Mafiosi 3’s events. The Gallo family has become even more deeply entwined in the inner workings of the New York city criminal underworld. Longstanding family alliances are on the cusp of imploding, and Ronaldo Gallo is being targeted by a powerful foe, as well as a worthy adversary. Serving as the prologue to a new trilogy, this fourth chapter finally sets the course for the Gallo family’s mafia legacy.


Mafiosi is a tale of loyalty and deceit, murder and survival, and both the strength and frailty of familial bonds. This particular novel serves as the third (and most important) part of a much longer saga, following the Gallos from childhood to old age as they are pitted against the outside forces of the mafia world, and eventually, each other as well.

This installment is divided into five books (30 chapters total). This is the beginning of a new trilogy, focusing on the Gallo family legacy within the Mafia world.

Rated 16+ (to be safe) for language, adult situations, and violence.

Well, 4 chapters are complete thus far. Just another 2 to finish and I can release this amazingly different prologue to the masses.

But the real progress that's been made has been on the commercial versions of these novels. JtSketch has been hard at work on the sprites, and is at the colouring stage of the first batch of ten. They look freaking phenomenal, let me tell you! I can't wait to see the final editions! I'll be posting the previews very soon in the Mafiosi 1 page, sometime closer to the launch of the kickstarter campaign.

Meanwhile Solo Acapella has been cranking out some unbelievable tunes each and every week for the past 2 months. I've been floored by absolutely everything he's composed so far, and cannot wait for the fans to hear them!

I was also sent the new GUI update this morning (which was commissioned out to Valhalla), and it is looking SAWEEEEET! Things are really starting to come together for our kickstarter, it's unbelievable how far this project has come in the last little while.

I just have 2 more chapters to edit for Crime Opera 1 before I can start adding additional endings. It's going to be a very busy few months, but also very exciting at the same time!

Man, does Gretel ever stand out in that picture.
Yep, that's a problem that has plagued the series from the beginning with the resources not all fitting well together. That's going to change when I upgrade the Mafiosi VNs to "Crime Opera", as it will have all original art and music, as well as edited scripts and additional paths.
