    Last year was pretty good on this front I got to agree, but 2017 has some really promising games coming up I must say.

    Codex favorite Battle Brothers should be out in a couple of months. Personal favorite here as well. Then we have Xenonauts 2 and from what I'm understanding the Kickstarter for it will start some day in March. Might be a tight release for 2017 but I believe in Chris! Let's not forget End State which I also believe is scheduled for this year with the alpha test-thing coming out soon.

    There is also the game Shock Tactics in the making by a German team, but I'm really unsure on the release date for this game. It looks interesting though! Another game that makes me unsure is our resident Codexers Whalenought Studios game Copper Dreams. It might or it might not get released this year, but if it does it just adds to this already pretty good list.

    Possible 5 nice combat focused turn-based games coming out. It might actually make 2017 worth living :)

    Then on the role-playing front we have Divinity 2: Orginal Sin, Torment: Tides of Numenera and Expeditions: Viking. Not too shabby!

    I also hope Jon Shafer's 4x game At The Gates gets released this year as well. But going by the forum and Twitter it doesn't look too good unfortunately.

    I guess I'm missing a couple of games as well, so feel free to fill me in!

    Updated with list!

    I'm looking forward to Pathway by Robotality, but don't know it's release date. And who knows when LOX2 and Banner Saga 3 come out? There's also Stygian Reign of the Old Ones on the RPG front.

    Ah, yeah. Their first game Half-way was enjoyable. Pathway looks like it could be something special. Man, 2017 could become really awesome, I just hope all this comes out with no long delays.

    Noticed an Early Access game on Steam called "Pit People" -- 626 reviews at Overwhelmingly Positive; seems like a We Go system with a Chaos General aesthetic.

    General Chaos was a damn fun game, if you mean the old Megadrive game? Not sure about Pit People though, just don't seem to be my thing from the video.

    It doesn't have specialized melee weapons either, all your mech can do is punch, kick, shoulder check, or goomba-stomp.

    Does Stellar Tactics count? Vigilantes too, though I'm not sure it's out in 2017.

    If you don't mind some weeb, there's also a bunch of indie SRPGs coming out this year: Hellenica, Children of the Zodiarcs, etc.

    All right, found two more games. They are not turn-based, but they are Squad Tactical -games so I thought I would mention them at least.

    Fist one is M.E.R.C. It's a real time squad tactics game set in a dystopian cyberpunk future. I guess it's a bit like Syndicate since it seems you will be fighting other corporations and stuff like that. It recently entered early access and according to their steam page it will stay there a few months for polishing and feedback.

    I asked about either the game would focus on single-player or multi-player on their Steam forum and I got this answer from a developer;

    Another game that I have on my wish-list is Thunder Tier One. It's a top down real time tactical shooter, but more in the style of Zombie Shooter and the likes. The game will enter early access in Q1 2017, so I'm guessing soon. According to their Steam page it will be in EA for about 6 months, so if we are lucky it will get fully released during this year. This game will have a campaign mode, but from what I gather the game will be more multi-player focused - co-op and PvP.

    Some games off the top of my head I'm keeping an eye on, I don't know if any is worth adding to the list :
    - the Voidspire Tactics sequel by Rad Codex, codename : more tactics
    - Age of fear 3, judging by this Steam thread
    - Liege
    - Depth of Exctinction is stated for 2017, not saying it's likely
    - Flamberge
    - Street Posse Showdown
    - Overland, I'm still not sure if this one could be good
    - Demons Age

    Also following Seven Dragon Saga, Bevontule, Fae Tactics and The Iron Oath which probably don't have a planned release date, but are all very unlikely to come in 2017.
