Convoy Games announces the release of
, their throwback game
strategy RPG described as Mad Max meets FTL. This is now available for Windows
and OS X, and they continue to truck along on the Linux edition, which will come
down the road along with other elements promised by their Kickstarter such as
the scenario editor and the modding API. Here's word:
Presented in pixel
art and set in a future post-apocalyptic setting, Convoy is a squad based
tactical roguelike-like in its core. You travel with your combat vehicles and
convoy across a wasteland to find parts needed to repair your broken spaceship.
During your journey you will encounter strangers in randomized scenarios by
picking up radio signals.
Depending on the choices you make, signals can either lead to tactical combat,
text based dialogue or chance based role-play. Whatever choice you make, you
need to keep your convoy and its cargo safe from raiders, privateers and other
enemies. Keep upgrading your vehicles, as death is permanent in Convoy.
