Convoy Rolls Out

Convoy Games announces the release of Convoy, 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.

Here's my video review.

Sweet, thanks!

Also, why don't you send these into Blue for the reviews section? Confused

It looks interesting. Bummer that it's only on Windows and Mac.

Love the premise of this game. It needs to be realized in glorious 3D!

Yeah, while I carry great disdain for 8-bit, there are games that I admit rise above that mediocre graphics format. I thoroughly enjoyed for example FTL, Rogue Legacy, and Defender's Quest. So, I think this looks in the same vein, and I'll be picking it up.

If this is the one I was thinking of, it didn't look bad at all.
