Choosing the best upcoming turn-based RPGs & Strategy games it’s never easy, usually, I go for the ones that hit me at first sight, could it be an inspired graphic style, unique mechanics, or some original concept, and I assure you that I keep skipping a lot of turn-based games during my explorations. It means that fortunately, turn-based games are everywhere and in all kinds of genre; RPGs, Roguelikes, Deckbuilding, Strategy games and puzzle games.
