“A game that merges the Real world weather and locations with a robust Turn-based Strategy game, 「X-Tactics」 is truly revolutionary!” – FamitsuApp
X-Tactics takes place in a world, similar to our own, but one where top-secret government agencies and secret societies, maintain the peace and world order by manipulating the truth, news and many historical events.
X-Tactics puts you the player in the role of the head of X12 one of the top-secret agencies, and at the command of a ragtag cast of secret agents, adventurers and treasure hunters, that risk their lives trying to keep the truth from leaking.
Wrapped in dark humour and a stylish anime punk art style, X-Tactics brings a new twist to modern conspiracy theories and urban legends.
X-Tactics differs greatly from other tactical games in that there are not armies, generic characters, or job systems, instead we decided to go with fighting game aesthetics and have designed a unique roster of characters, each with their own unique skills and playstyles, while still giving you the freedom to develop character skill growth to fit your strategies and preferred playstyle.
We want you to think about what you should bring to the table in a detailed level, as you would if you we’re sending highly trained special agents out to fulfil dangerous missions.
Each Agent’s skills are activated by commands formed by combinations of Boosts somewhat like how fighting game commands work. Of course activating one is great, but for the hard-core player activating 2 or 3 in the same attack is what can make a bit difference!
When we set out to make X-Tactics we didn’t want to make just another tactical game, nor attempt to create some sort of spiritual successor to some other game.
Our goal as developers at Gamkin is to create something new.
X-Tactics is at its heart a game of turn-based tactics, but with dynamics focused on investigating missions and battles in treacherous close-quarters combat, as you might find in an urban setting.
Your agents won’t be able to take ridiculous amounts of damage to the face, and you will need to keep on the move and play by taking calculated risks to achieve victory rapidly before things get out of control.
A typical missions consists of a series of tactical skirmishes. Where your results, the secrets you find, and environmental conditions will develop each characters own storylines.
