Game Features Update!
We’ve been promising some more development footage and it’s now incoming! You’ll recall the game encompasses an array of unique gameplay features, including an innovative combat system constructed around the theme of light vs darkness. Representing the battle of ‘good vs evil’, Allied characters find solace in the light whilst the opposing Nazi army hide in the shadows awaiting their moment to strike. A skilled player can use this light and dark feature to provide an edge to their gameplay strategy. Here’s how the game’s external environments in which this system is based, is shaping up:
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics also includes an intricate momentum system, which encourages the player to think strategically about their long-term plan to overthrow the Nazi reign of terror. Each successful action builds momentum for the player, which in turn opens up new lines of tactical attack. Each playable character has a tailored momentum action, ranging from a rake of machine gun fire to a fast snap-shot with a pistol. When layered with standard commands and attacks, this momentum system allows the player to build ingenious combinations of tactical brilliance. Related to this, here’s how the game’s character animations environments are shaping up:
We’re getting ever close to that next unlock at 18K, so do please join us as we push on to victory!
