WARLINE: Tactical Fantasy Battles (pre-release)

2 players
30-60 minutes

"What is an implement of war is purely a matter of perspective. Even a blade of grass can turn the tide of battle."

WARLINE: Tactical Fantasy Battles is a detailed maneuver warfare sandbox game. With nuanced systems and mechanisms modeled on fifteenth and sixteenth century martial practice, WARLINE gives you the tools and freedom that you need to craft and execute your very own unique and creative strategy. Do you prefer to manipulate your opponent with psychological warfare? Are you more comfortable dominating your opponent with attrition? Would you be more effective by cutting off your opponent's center of gravity? WARLINE is a canvas on which you can paint a strategy all your own.

Yet, while highly-technical and detailed, WARLINE is designed with elegance at the forefront, resulting in an accessible, fast, and furious expression of warfare on your tabletop.

--Total Control--

In WARLINE, you are not just commanding an army, you are also directly involved as a member of the army. The result of every decision that you make and every action that you and your army take are completely under your control. There is zero luck involved. Nonetheless, WARLINE remains fluid, flexible, and mapped to a decision space and a game state possibility space that are both infinitely broad and deep--ensuring that situational memorization is not only ineffective, it is nearly impossible. Every battle, and every moment of battle, must be approached in a unique manner. Every opponent that you face, regardless of skill level, presents a one-of-a-kind, interesting challenge.

--History Meets Fantasy--

WARLINE's core mechanims and systems are mapped to key historical and modern military techniques. And while the core of the game is founded on actual accounts and doctrine, WARLINE's layers of rich fantasy help sculpt a vision of war that is even more thrilling and epic. Ride terrifying beasts in order to put immense pressure on your opponent. Wield powerful magic to not only manipulate the battle, but also to completely reshape the battlefield itself--transforming the landscape to your tactical advantage.

You have the tools. You have the wits. Can you put it all together and stand victorious in the resulting chaos of war?

--Standout Features--

• Multiple paths to victory and customized set up ensures that no two battles are alike.

• Optional army customization and pre-battle planning lead to rich meta-gaming.

• Scalable and modular, you can customize the game to suit your situation and desires: Build out custom battlefields, build out your army with variable unit powers, and more.

• WARLINE encourages creative, fluid approaches to every situation, as your tactical decisions are not limited by rigid movement patterns or restrictions.

• Incredibly short set up time, along with average game times of 30 minutes.

• Beautiful, large scale game components that appear as works of modern European industrial design, delivering a stunning table presence.

• Innovative game mechanisms that express vivid warfare while minimizing fiddliness and complication.

• Full support for deep and varied organized play.

@digiartst When did you play? Have you seen the game since the February 22nd update? There are no longer "blank" zones—all zones are covered with default "flatland" terrain until you change it.

just started reviewing this game and the first thing that struck me as an artist is the flat terrain tiles would look better as grass or dirt than just the black they have now, black takes me right out of the game

Very good idea! I'll see if I can work that in to the next mod update. Thank you for the suggestion :steamhappy:

You should use a 3 card system to replicate rock paper scissors. Then no dice needed.

That's a great suggestion--thanks! I'll play around with the material and find something that makes the graphic designs "pop" more.

Glad that you like the game :steamhappy:

Very cool and interesting game! Just a little suggestion... if you could change the material of the cube from Plastic to Cardbard would be great. Because the color of the illustration get stronger.

Anyway thank for the game!
