The Stellar Jockeys website reveals
development of Matador, an isometric single-player, real-time tactical
combat game coming to Windows, OS X, and Linux this summer, with early access
expected to begin within the next couple of months.
This reveal trailer
offers a look at gameplay, and here's an explanation:
The game is called
Matador (PC Mac Linux), and it's a single player real time tactical combat game.
The game takes around an hour or so to beat, and like FTL / Binding of Isaac
when you die you start over again, possibly with new unlocks. Play centers
around combat in a single city over the course of a single night, against
multiple different factions with different fighting styles. The player has a
wide variety of vehicles and weapons to choose from when starting a run-- we
want to encourage a broad variety of playstyles, from more cautious, stealthy
types to people who like to Kool-Aid straight through walls. Speaking of which,
while the maps are all flat 2D, the environments are completely destructible, so
the battlefield is very dynamic. In short, tense but thoughtful iterative
gameplay with a large variety of options.
