Looks like a retro 90's pixel art PSONE game but I will say I just might buy it.

First tine I heard about this game. And it's looking good

Not-so-unrelated question: If Tacrics V means Tactics 5, then are there are another previous 4 iterations? Where are they?

@henriquejr I checked their website. Seems this is the only game with the name.

Thanks for the info, Couchpotato!
This reminds me of SNES Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen, which is subtitled "Episode V" when the previous 4 ones haven't been released at all (games or other media). Go figure!

First I've heard on this game as well, and if it's anything like the older Ogre game, I'll be picking it up the day it launches. It sounds a bit smallish, under twenty hours in total, but if it sells well I'll just have to hope they make a bigger and even better sequel at some point.

Loved Tactics Ogre… definitely interested in any new game that looks to channel some of that past.

Unique idea. Had to download the video to scrutinize image sequences with everything moving. The weakest part is the spells / particle effects. Could be an interesting game to check out.
