Hi all, time for some tactics game news and stuff.
The indie scene is producing tactics games with exciting gameplay possibilities, while Japanese devs seem to be retreating into easy fanservice grinding games. Thanks for keeping the genre alive, indie devs!
New tactics games never before mentioned on this blog (I'm pretty sure, anyway):
Incognita - A “turn-based tactical espionage” game.
Immortal Empire - Immortal Empire's unique gameplay is like a cross-breed between X-Com and Dota.
1941 Frozen Front for iOS.
Dark Quest for iOS.
Hex Wars for browsers.
Batallion: Nemesis for browsers.
Legends of Eisenwald
Battleship for DS/3DS.
Comic ConQuest for browsers, iOS, and android.
