Lioncode Games will be bringing their strategy game Mech Armada to Steam later this summer. The game will launch in Early Access and receive content updates until it is completed.
Imagine a tactics game that plays like card-based battling, but doesn’t use cards. Instead the characters you order around serve as the cards — you amass robots and lay them on the battlefield strategically. It’s actually a good thing you can always “draw” more robots from the “deck,” as this game’s got permadeath — when you lose a mech, it’s gone forever. There are some you won’t want to lose though…by mixing and matching parts, you can create stronger mechs that’ll serve as valuable tools to win each map.
Deep strategic combat: There are no perfect solutions. Create your own strategy by cleverly making the most out of your resources and the situation.
Design your own mech: With 70+ available Mech parts, you can create thousands of unique combinations. Each part has its own strengths and weaknesses, giving you an enormous range of possibilities.
Turn-Based combat: You can move into position and attack with each of your mechs, in any order. Then it’s the Swarm’s turn…
Procedurally generated: All the gameplay elements (monsters, maps, resources and rewards) are randomly combined and balanced ensuring no two battles are the same.
Roguelike campaign: Death means game over. Try again with an entirely new run, with new random parts and encounters. You’ll have to make do with what you get!
Auto-save: Never worry about saving again. Leave your game at any point and return exactly where you left off.
Environment variety: From the outskirts of destroyed cities, to desert wastelands, the Swarm spreads and the battle for survival rages on.
Epic bosses: They’re massive, ugly and ridiculously tough. Are you up to the task?
All this and more awaits you when Mech Armada launches in Early Access form August 10.

The title of Natsume’s latest Harvest Moon — One World — could be taken as ironic. The series had a split-up between its publisher and developer a few years ago, which is unlikely to ever be resolved. The series began in Japan on the Super NES under the title “Story
Goblinz Studio’s reverse dungeon crawler Legend of Keepers was launched last spring for PC and consoles. Six months later, it’s about to receive its first DLC pack, Return of the Goddess.

Before there was science or medicine there was alchemy, the practice of mixing stuff together and hoping it would produce some kind of magic. This never worked, but it laid the groundwork for a lot of fantasy stories centuries later. In the upcoming game Potion Craft from publisher tinyBuild and
