Default Kickstarter Games - Externus: Path of the Solari

May 20th, 2020, 19:09
The Kickstarter campaign for the tactical RPG Externus: Path of the Solari has started:

Externus - Path of the Solari

Externus: Path of the Solari is a character driven tactical RPG based on a homebrew tabletop game for Windows PC and consoles.

Externus: Path of the Solari is a character-driven tactical roleplaying game (RPG) adapted from an original tabletop game. We take inspiration from classic tactical RPGs like Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Shining Force along with modern game development to craft our own story and give you characters that matter. Our approach is designed to allow you to get to know the characters in your party along with strategic combat in full 3D battlefields.

Features

  • Strategic Turn-Based Tactical Combat
  • Full 3D Battlefields
  • Character-Driven Story
  • Storybook Choose Your Own Adventure Sequences
  • Death Matters, Each Ally You Lose Will Change Your Story
  • Unique Full-Color Artstyle
  • Based On An Original Tabletop RPG
Externus is a storybook brought to life and your actions on and off the battlefield can change the pages as they're presented. You should think about the risks and rewards of bringing certain characters and using their specialized abilities. Your actions and choices matter. This goes back to our tabletop roots of wanting to tell a collective story that changes based on the players around the table. We encourage party interaction through our campfire scenes and storybook sequences that pay homage to the original tabletop game. Think about the world in terms of Fate. Death will be permanent in Externus, how will you react? Let the story play out and see how a character's death affects those who knew them both in positive and negative ways. Maybe it'll even send a ripple effect out into the world!

We are a group of passionate game developers with over 11 years of experience in making games. We're building Externus using our custom BroadSword Engine built on the MonoGame Framework.

"Strategic Turn-Based Tactical Combat"

Which is it, strategic or tactical? That said, TB combat at this level is by definition, tactical.

Well if it has a map screen as well where you make strategic choices could it not be both?

This looks bad in every way. Sorry. With such small maps where should the tactical approach come from? I fear this is again more of a puzzle battler.
