On the Radar – November 2019

Written by Hardcase

Upcoming turn-based games

The next month brings with it mixed news, some of them very sad and others quite good. The biggest disappointment for me is the delay of Stoneshard, probably the game I’m waiting more than any other at the moment.
That being said, it doesn’t mean that November will be a bad month for us, on the contrary.

A wonderful and unexpected news will bring joy to many “turn-based lovers” (drumroll, please): on the 13th of November will be released in Early Access Wildermyth!
For those who may not know, Wildermyth is (in my humble opinion) one the most interesting and innovative Tactical RPG of the last years. If you want to know more about it you can read our preview and our wonderful interview (probably the best I’ve ever get!).

Obviously that’s not all! During November, we will be able to get our hands on SteamCity Chronicles, a tactical RPG with strong steampunk influences, and also on the next DLC for BattleTech, by the name of Heavy Metal!

On 19th of November there will be out also Narcos, a tactical RPG based on the hit Netflix TV series. The images and videos reminder me a lot the Jagged Alliance series. Probably my expectations are too high, but who knows?

And now let’s take a closer look to the November releases!


SteamCity is a turn-based strategy game with a unique world setting, merging steampunk art direction with strong Japanese influences.
The game tells the gripping story of the daring rebellion of Sophie von Eschenbach, the ‘Rose of Freedom’ against the Yamagami corporation – a faceless organization from the East, hell-bent on complete efficiency and productivity. It has strong roots in established classics but adds its own individual twist to the well-known formula.

You can control dozens of characters at once, from brave Rose Militia members who have taken up arms against the evil Yamagami Corporation, to powerful steam robots, renegade enemy soldiers, and even the main heroes of the game.
Once you select a character, you can command them to move, run, look around, place a sentry, or open fire on the enemy – the choice is yours.
However, be wary that your opponent is a skilled strategist, and they’ll be looking at every opportunity to exploit your mistakes, flank you, and take the upper hand in battles.

You can buy it on Steam.

WILDERMYTH – 13th November (E.A.)

Wildermyth is a character-driven, procedurally-generated tactical RPG, designed to help you tell your wildest stories. Like the best tabletop roleplaying experiences, Wildermyth gives you choices and answers your every decision with consequences that drive your characters forward.

Lead a band of heroes as they grow from reluctant farmers into unique, legendary fighters. Combat unexpected threats and strange monsters across interactive battlefields. Unravel mysteries and share pensive moments in an ever-new fantasy setting that blends hard truths and sacrifice with humor and personal storytelling.

You can buy this little gem on Steam but also on Itch.io.
