Reverie Knights Tactics Is Out Now
Turn-based tactics games seem to be getting more and more popular, and a consistent spell of quality releases over the past several years has made it one of the most exciting genres. From the X-COM series, to Banner Saga, Desperados, and more, there are plenty of great titles that players can sink their teeth into.
Now Reverie Knights Tactics has the potential to join that list. If you are reading this, then the game has released onto Steam, so you can dive headfirst into this tactical role-playing experience now
What Is Reverie Knights Tactics About?
Reverie Knights Tactics is set in the world of Tormenta, a unique realm created for the game that draws "inspiration from more than 20 years worth of tabletop RPGs, comic books, novels, and audiobooks." There are many familiar fantasy elements in the world - which help ease players into the game. Importantly, it also feels uniquely eclectic due to the many sources it draws from.
The story follows your party of characters as you embark on an expedition to find a long-lost ancient elven city called Lennorien, all in a bid to save the ones you love. Sadly, there is also the terror of the goblins running rampant across the continent, and your quest will be frequently interrupted by the threat they pose.
What Are Some Reverie Knights Features?
Something that will jump out instantly is the hand-drawn art style that gives the game a lot of personality and flair. It's vibrant but doesn't sacrifice atmosphere, and immediately helps to set the game apart.
As an RPG, the developers also boast the potential for tonnes of character customisation and an expansive storyline drive by your choices and their consequences. Obviously, 'choice and consequence' is somewhat of a marketing buzzword these days, but there are still titles that live up to it.
An aspect that has received a lot of work and stands as a central pillar of the experience is (of course) the turn-based combat. It works in a standard grid-based map, as you watch over the battlefield from an isometric perspective and control a series of heroes with their strategies that derive from their pool of skills and abilities.
Reverie Knights also boasts the potential to manipulate the environments in battle themselves, which is sure to add another level of tactics to think about when conducting battle. Either way, it looks like a promising entry into the turn-based tactics genre. Give it a go!
