On The Radar -September 2020

Upcoming turn-based games

As usual we are here to see what is going to be released during the next weeks, but, this month, there is no time for chit-chat!
September is a sad month and I think I don’t have to explain why. Suffice to say that I’ve always considered September like the Monday of the year…
So with this dark moods in our sad hearts, let’s see together what is awaiting us just around the corner…


Combat Mission Shock Force 2 – 1st September

I’ve never been a great fan of wargames and the reason is rather simple: I like wars only when they happen in my mind.
Anyway I’m aware that this is just a matter of taste so let’s see what this game has to offer.
C.M.S.F. 2 brings you to a hypothetical conflict in Syria between the forces of NATO and the Syrian Army. The missions can be played either in real-time or in turn-based mode (a “sort of”, called WeGo).
The keyword of the game is “realism” and the list of its features is so long that the only thing I can do is inviting you to go its Steam page.


Crusader Kings III – 1st September

Yeah, it seems that on the 1st of September it will be impossible to avoid a war.
Another wargame, this time with an historical flavor. I’ve never played to any of the other chapter, but I know for sure that the series has a lot of good qualities (and a lot of fans too).
Your mission? Choose a royal house and guide your dynasty through the centuries!
On Steam.


Rogue Summoner – 3rd September

Rogue Summoner is a turn-based tactics roguelike about strategically conjuring monsters to fight in your stead. Summon every creature you encounter, from spineless minions to mighty bosses, and conquer all the dungeons to become the Rogue Summoner!

Features:

  • Explore different types of procedurally generated dungeons, each with its unique theme, difficulty and monsters
  • Summon every creature you encounter, from spineless minions to mighty bosses
  • Master and combine different behaviors creatively
  • Create and Execute your strategy in a turn-based, table-top combat system
  • Cast your own combos with different monsters, magic potions and rune spells
  • Upgrade your skills as you level up and go deeper into the dungeons
  • Become the Rogue Summoner – no matter how many deaths it takes

On Steam.


Dungeon No Dungeon (E.A.) – 4th September

Not too much info about this game. The developer describes the game as a turn-based cult strategy game with locational damage & roguelike elements.
In a nutshell: explore different rooms, combat fierce monsters, and face random events.
Watching the trailers, Dungeon No Dungeon reminded me of a cheaper version of Darkest Dungeon, but maybe I’m wrong.
On Steam.


Necromunda: Underhive Wars – 8th September

I find the description of this game quite evocative: under the nightmarish cities of Necromunda, in the dark tunnels of the so called “Underhive”, rival gangs fights for survival and honor of their Houses. In order to do that you will have to manage you gang and its equipment, learn new skills and exploit the arena to your advantage.

Even if the game is an adaptation from the famous tabletop game, Necromunda (of the Warhammer 40,000 universe), graphically speaking the game seems to be a nice mix between Mad Max and Gears of War.
On Steam.


Star Renegades – 8th September

Their first game, Halcyon 6, was a sleeping hit and a really good surprise for me, so now a lot of people are eagerly awaiting the second work of Massive Damage Inc.
Yes, but what is exactly Star Renegades? It can be defined as a rogue-lite strategy RPG where you will have to fight against an overwhelming force, known as Imperium in a mission-based campaign with many roguelike elements.

Features:

  • Outwit your foes with interrupts, counters, and combos in our fast-paced Reactive Time Battle System
  • Survive the relentless onslaught of an Intelligent Adversary system that generates unique enemies and bosses that evolve as you play
  • Unlock dozens of alternate characters as your surviving squad members form bonds and create progeny
  • Battle your way into the heart of the Empire as our Rebellion Engine creates a unique experience with each playthrough via emergent gameplay and events, procedurally generated missions, shifting priorities, evolving enemies, and tons of equipment/upgrades for your squad.

On Steam.


As Far As The Eye – 10th September

“As Far As The Eye” is a fascnating and original game. Why, are you wandering?
For many reasons. First thing first, because of its unique setting, a wild land where a tribe tries to reach the center of world, called The Eyes, precisely. Secondly, because I think it’s the first nomadic turn-based city builder I’ve ever heard so far. Moreover, A.F.A.T.E. has a very inspired graphic art.
In short a game to keep an eye on it.
On Steam.


The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos – 17th September

…and the award for the Longest Title of the Month goes to (drum roll) “The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos”!
All kidding aside, we already covered the game not so long ago, so, since I’m very lazy, here is what we said in that occasion:
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos is a turn-based tactical RPG chock-full of charm, humor, and chaos! Leading a ragtag company of unlikely heroes, players will embark on an epic adventure through the dreadful dungeon of Naheulbeuk, utilizing both “strength” and “smarts” to overcome the very worst that the evil lord Zangdar has to throw at them.
If you want to read some more, here is our preview.
On Steam and on Epic Store.


Commanders of Valor – 19th September

Commanders of Valor is a strategy, role-playing tabletop game.
Set in the last two centuries before the common era, players can take control of a royal family of three factions and lead them to glory.

  • Role playing experience
  • Strategic battlefield
  • Many different factions
  • More than 25 different units
  • Multiplayer and single player mode

Baldur’s Gate 3 – 30th September

No need for introductions for the new Larian Studios title.
This time is the good one and, after some delays, finally, the early version of the new chapter of Baldur’s Gate seems ready to be released.
Finally, the Forgotten Realms are ready for a new adventure!
Do I really need to say that we are super excited for everything that lies ahead?
