    Systems that are implied might be interesting though.

    The only battle in the demo is actually promising, with a good AP system, unique characters, and the planar shift mechanism is pleasant.

    In case you haven't noticed.
    Seems to be pretty much a sequel to Drums of War.

    Looks kinda interesting. Unique controls I guess, one guy in realtime while you plan out attacks for the rest of your squad.

    Added Dark Quest 2 to the list.

    It seems it has been in EA for a while, but never seen it before. Looks interesting. Supposed release date early 2017.

    It's more like a hero-quest game than a full-fledged squad tactics thing though.

    Haven't played much of it, to be honest.
    Was waiting for it to get fully done, and my laptop got screwed. :negative:
    But honestly, if you've played Heroquest you've got the idea.

    I enjoyed it, but it's pretty simple. Needs better balancing and more content. The balance and leveling system is a tad weird; you get blue bottles that increase the number and power of each character's special abilities, but I think the difficulty of the various stages remains the same. So you grind the easy stages for bottles, and then try the harder stages. You can also pay gold to craft items, hookers to increase morale/strength, and there are potions. There's no perma-death, you can just resurrect people at the graveyard. There's a merchant you can sell jewelry to, but it seems pointless (may as well just give me gold in the first place, there's no other use for jewelry, gems, etc).

    Okay, technically the game isn't out yet, but it says on their Steam page that it will be out in less in an hour so well... Shock Tactics is out. I guess :)

    I might pick it up later to give it a go, but I'm hoping one of you will take the plunge and give a first impression :P

    Hey guys,

    I'm the guy behind the turn based tactics game Depth of Extinction and just wanted to let you all know that the game is now up on Steam Greenlight. Please check out our page and we'd love to hear your feedback or suggestions. We also have a let's play of the current version of the game up on the page as well.

    Ah nice dude. I thought it might have been canceled or something.

    Nope. We've been working on it since the demo came out last year and I think the latest version is much improved. We still have about 4-5 mos left of dev before it's ready for release though I think.

    based on their own patch log, it sounds like they rushed the release. it's a shame, becaue E:C was great.
