Untamed Tactics

In-Game Background Story

General Greycoat is an old rabbit who escapes the terrors or the War of the Wilds to settle in a new part of the world that is largely unaffected by the War of the Wilds. Many years later he retells his adventures to his grandchildren. However, Greycoat has gotten older and his memory is fragmented, to say the least. He’s also haunted by his nightmares which are connected to his dark past. The narrative unfolds over two separate modes, Campaign and Nightmare mode.


Players can choose from two different modes: Campaign and Nightmare mode. Campaign mode tells a story in a classic more linear fashion while the procedural Nightmare mode features rogue-lite elements. In the Nightmare mode the narrative also acts as a progression system that unlocks new upgrades for your characters. When it comes to battle you control a group of 3 heroes. Heroes can move and use one or more abilities per turn, depending on how much Power you’ve saved up. You can gang up on enemies for extra bonus damage, additionally there’s the unique Parley system. This mechanic allows you to talk to an enemy, don’t underestimate the power of words as it can have a far flung impact on the rest of the battle and game!
