Are you ready for Alder’s Blood? I hope you are, because the game has some release dates coming up. It’s a Victorian-Western turn-based tactical stealth game set in a world where mankind has not had the freedom to develop or advance any of its technology.

Players take on the role of the Chief of Hunters, leading a group of expertly trained, impressively skilled, monster slayers of the professional variety. Hunters sneak in the shadows, carefully planning their attacks. Swift, silent, and deadly, Hunters use tactics, specialized gear, and the dark arts to take down their enemies, which include vampires and werewolves. 

Hunters can’t do it alone. Even experienced Hunters won’t stand a chance in one-on-one encounters with a beast. They must team up with other Hunters, using tactics and brain smarts over brute force and muscle. Players of Alder’s Blood must manage their energy level between attacking, moving and casting spells. Hunters are only human and running out of energy will cause them to suffer from fatigue.

Adding to the strategic element of Alder’s Blood, these monsters can detect Hunters by scent. Hunters must monitor wind direction, avoid being noticed, and prepare their ambushes. Players must take care not to reveal their position too early.

Hunting tools are just as important as his weapons. Players must make good use of the sophisticated technology and dark artifacts at your disposal. Resources will, of course, be limited.
