Embark on a Unique Tactical Journey

Tenderfoot Tactics offers a fresh take on the tactical RPG genre, drawing inspiration from classic titles while introducing a novel, deterministic combat system. This system eschews traditional mechanics like random miss chances and damage ranges, opting instead for predictable and strategic gameplay. Players can manipulate the elements to gain the upper hand in battles, transforming the terrain to their advantage. However, such power comes with its consequences, reminding adventurers of nature’s complexity and unpredictability.

A Rich, Open World Awaits

The game sets players loose in a beautifully rendered archipelago, encouraging exploration by land, sea, and air. The environment is filled with ancient ruins, mysterious artifacts, and potential allies. The narrative centers around a group of goblins who, armed with magic from the archipelago’s spirits, seek to uncover the truth behind the devastating Fog that threatens their world.
