Tatsu

Tatsu

Officially licensed version of the new board game by award-winning designer John Yianni!

Japanese legend tells of a great battle between two mighty Dragon Lord armies, locked in combat on the peaks of Mount Hotaka, competing to win the hand of the Princess Kushinada, the last and most beautiful of eight sisters. A battle so ferocious, that the villagers fearing for their lives, acquire the help of a powerful Wizard, who casts a spell over the Dragon Lords to keep them imprisoned in a circle of combat and to be freed only at the battle’s end. Their struggle continues to this very day, even though the Princess and their fateful story have long passed into legend.

Techwars Online

Techwars Online

Techwars Online is a hardcore turn-based strategy game where each battle hinges on using every last ounce of tactical skill and planning out your moves several turns in advance. Choose a side, get a unique mech, use it as a basis to create a team of five combat mechs, and head into battle!

The events of the game take place in the world of Mikhail Vlad’s novel Techwars. The American corporation Kato is vying with the Russian company Dominion for control over the latest military technology. The primary tools they use to demonstrate their power are massive combat mechs, the most advanced weapons on Earth.

You choose one of these corporations and receive a unique mech. Eventually, once your base mech has been modified, your fleet of combat mechs can include up to five truly one-of-a-kind units.

Test your team’s mettle in one of four game modes:

  • Campaign – ten missions for each side that will help you choose the right corporation and hone your skills on the battlefield.
  • PvP – adrenaline-pounding, painstakingly balanced, head-to-head tactical action.
  • Battle – conflict over territories between players. This is where you can really strut your stuff as a strategist.
  • Tournaments – regularly occurring competitions between players where anyone can prove their superiority and become the champion.

Techwars Online was created especially for old-school gamers who love to dominate through intellect alone. Everything is designed around this style of gameplay:

  • A unique combined-damage system that harkens back to the best turn-based mech games.
  • Enormous potential to upgrade the mechs from each corporation and min-max your hand-picked team.
  • The ability to upgrade your pilot using multi-level neuroimplants.
  • Absolutely no RNG – only your experience and skill can give you an edge in battle.

Are You Ready to Put Your Wits to the Test?

Pocket Space Empire

Pocket Space Empire

This is not a perfect game. It has many flaws. Usually games are more playable during Early Access.

But this is what you will get for sure:

  • You will feel like the Emperor (assassins, imperial court, granting audiences, rebels, imperial officials)
  • No micromanagement (no moving individual ships around or constructing boring farms, you deal with more important things)
  • Unique mechanics (if you are bored with other games and wanted to see something fresh, you won’t be disappointed)

Basics:

Turn based, 4X, empire space builder, singleplayer.

The premise behind the game.

You are the emperor, not a logistics officer. You don’t deal with low level stuff like building farms, factories or individual ships. Instead you focus on the grander scale of things. You grant audiences, make edicts, appoint imperial officials, deal with court factions and assassins, crush rebels, decide on production quotas and priorities.

In the game there is no micromanagement, late game does not drag on forever. You can play a relatively fast paced game on a huge galaxy without late game slow downs. You own hundreds of planets, thousands of ships and all this is managed on the high level by edicts and a hierarchical fleet system. The whole premise was to make the player make only the important and interesting choices leaving everything else abstracted.

Another important feature is the asymmetric nature of the game. The AI plays by different rules, and does not try to win the game. Aliens are more like creatures living in the galaxy than computer controlled players. Sometimes they can be valuable assets worthy of protection and sometimes an obstacle to overcome. Aliens are not created equal, some are primitive beasts that shall be cleansed from the face of the galaxy, some are fellow humanoids inferior to Terrans of course but considered sentient and worthy of compassion.

In short it’s a fast paced turn based space empire builder with no micromanagement, asymmetric mechanics, and focus on you as the emperor.

Development plan:

* Early Access for 3-6 months (not guaranteed, just a prediction)

* At least one new version monthly during EA (typically every 1-3 weeks), bug fixes, especially serious ones, deployed much faster.

* Post release polish for 2-4 months

* After further 9 months, and if everything is all right, an expansion (it’s almost guaranteed, I have never done an expansion before and I’m excited to try, so I’m going to make one even if it does not make any sense financially :))

* Around 24 months of post release support (bug fixes and minor adjustments)

Notes:

* There will be no saves compatibility between versions during Early Access.
Requirements:

  • OS: Win XP or better
  • Graphics: Screen resolution minimum 1024×768
  • Additional Notes: The game should run on almost any hardware, even outdated one.
