Tactical Deception

A tactical turn-based strategy game where you lead a group of ex-soldiers against politicians, corruption, and criminality. How will you deal with them it’s all up to you.

Tactical Deception

Background Story

You lead a group of ex-soldiers who will have to deal with civil wars that have led the country to bow to corrupt politicians and criminality. We will face the angry population and the various factions that have been created. (Military, Bankers, Industrialists, Doctors, and others). We will have to make our choices and decide which path to follow.

Tactical Deception


We still know very little about Tactical Deception, but we already have planned an interview with developers to learn more. For now, from the images taken from the official website, the game looks like a sort of Xcom where we guide several soldiers on grid-based maps.

Tactical Deception

Each unit will have its background and its characteristics and abilities and it will be vital to choose the members best suited to the different types of mission that we will face.

Another interesting element is the 90-degree view of the enemy units which leaves room for stealth approaches
