Mystical Tactics Overview

Today, I want to introduce the debut game from a solo developer. Mystical Tactics marks the ambitious debut of MormWare, an EU-based solo developer with a passion for software engineering, fantasy works, and strategy games. This game is set to grace Windows PC, Mac, and Linux platforms via Steam in 2024, offering a unique blend of genres by combining turn-based tactical RPG elements with roguelike mechanics.

Players are thrust into a mystical world where they lead a squad of adventurers on a quest to repel the Dark Lord and his legions. Mystical Tactics stands out for its emphasis on rogue-lite gameplay, ensuring that every playthrough offers a new adventure with procedurally generated dungeons, encounters, and challenges.

This unpredictability, paired with the game’s deep character progression system, allows players to customize their heroes across various classes, abilities, and equipment, encouraging experimentation with different builds and synergies to suit individual playstyles.

The inclusion of procedurally generated content ensures that battles remain fresh and challenging, supporting a diverse range of tactics and team compositions.
