Warring States Early Access
Description
Release date: Early 2014
DEVELOPMENT STATUS: ALPHA

The Game
Warring States Tactics is set during Qin's final wars of the unification of China. Lead the forces of Qin through numerous missions as they challenge the other states for supremacy.

The game comes from our love of tactics games (Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, Warhammer, Dynasty Tactics) and the desire to bring our favorite elements together into one game. The combat is very much focused on the tactical choices as you cannot build during the battle. Each mission is like a pitched battle, with scripted dialogue and triggers to also give you a compelling story experience.

The story is told between missions as dialogue cutscenes using beautifully drawn character potraits; as well as in game dialogue relevant to the battle at hand.

Also included is a fully composed soundtrack inspired in part by the movie Hero; which really helps bring the feeling of ancient China to the game's atmosphere.

Love what you guys are doing with the game! Keep up the updates! I've been needing to get around to playing through it again, just going through a lot of stuff lately like moving. Keep up the great work, I love the look & feel of the game despite the theme not being something I'd typically enjoy. Most of all I love that my feedback is actually heard, which keeps me coming back for more! <3

It would be cool to play as the other states and not just the Qin. I would love to play as the Chu state.

I really like the concept and am looking forward to play it, all because of the popular manga, "Kingdom" which set in the same era, Warring States Period. How exciting!
