Timbertales, a turn based strategy game for iOS, Android and Desktop

Timbertales is a fantasy turn based hex field strategy game.

If you enter the game we have a classic hex tiled map. You will have to move your units around the map and clear out different map objectives or challenges. Every attack is handled instantly so you will see the results as fast as possible and you are able to plan your next steps immediately. We also provide special abilities for many units so you can make the choice for just attacking or using special abilities like heal or a more powerful kind of attack.

There will be different game modes available for solo playing and multiplayer. To spice things even more up, the maps in multiplayer and challenge mode will provide optional objectives for tactical decisions. For example on the plague of insects map you can destroy an insect hive. If the hive is destroyed the insects hunt down all enemy units. To secure those objectives can be a good strategy, but maybe also opens your base for an attack.
Main features:
- Army creation like its known from table top strategy games
- Map diversity every map offers a unique special event which allows tactial decisions
- Heroes every race will have their own unique heroes
- Competitive

Incubator Games' Trudy’s Mechanicals

Check out this upcoming Steampunk SRPG Trudy’s Mechanicals. It's set to arrive in 2015 on PC and possibly future platforms.

Some highlights from their website.

"Unit Variety – Many SRPGs have long relied on a combination of melee fighter, archer, and magic user as the pillars combat units. We’d like to break away from this format and make each class unique in both appearance and function."

"Offbeat Steampunk – While we like the industrial machinery and intricate mechanisms common to Steampunk, we wanted to create an aesthetic that stood out a bit."

"Interactive Environments – Battlefields in tactics games tend to be quite static — only occasionally providing some destructible props — and we wanted to breathe more life into them."

"Streamlined UI – TBS titles tends to take a long time to play out due to their interfaces. Since these are common issues, we’re focusing on presenting as much information as possible while minimizing input logistics."

Graywalkers, a post-apocalyptic tactical RPG

Graywalkers is a strategic/tactical RPG currently in development, inspired by XCOM, Jagged Alliance, and Fallout. There's a strategic layer with factions and economy management, interspersed by tactical battles. It looks ambitious and promising.

They're up on Steam Greenlight right now, and will be launching a Kickstarter this February. Check out the official site here.

"On the surface, the game runs as a turn-based tactical RPG with combined features from XCom, Jagged Alliance and Fallout. Running underneath it all is an emergent strategy system that will control factions, economy, a motivation system and a quest/mission generation system like those in Civilization and Mount & Blade. Take note though that is not a strategy game but an RPG."

Some early pre-alpha footage:
