OK Who's NOT playing Tooth and Tail?

:)

The soundtrack is so awesome! I'd advise a controller though the K&B interface is passable but not great.

RTS, that's a hard sell for me. Looks nice though.

+1 Starcraft was the last RTS I got in to. And I wasn't particularly good at it. I think I've purchased two or three since then and nothing...

But I like the art direction from the link. It's very 1960s children story or perhaps the cartoon version of Watership Down in feeling.

I guess I’m in the minority but I find the graphics style of this one to be a major turn off. It’s a little disappointing because gameplay wise, the game looks right up my alley. I’m just sick of pixel style graphics. I wish they had gone with the whole painted style of their static graphics.

Hard sell for me as well (modern RTS), but I noted a few comments about how inexperienced players would like this 'distilled' style of RTS. Add in a supposedly interesting campaign/story mode? Definitely in once I see a couple of reviews, if they are also positive.

I am getting a little burned out on retro pixel graphics though. For someone who spent hours and $$ trying to tweak hardware and software to tweak out every ounce of power and graphical beauty, for decades, it's almost an insult! :P

If someone had told me back in the mid 90's(?) that 80% of PC games in 2017 were being developed using pixel graphics, as I was saving money to buy an uber expensive 3dfx daughter card, I might have punched them.

Looked at the selling points and game mechanisms, immediately thought of Kohan, and would rather play that. That game rocked!

It's like Kohan in that there's little to no Actions Per Minute involved like Starcraft, which is what drew me to it. I also really liked this video review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Y6CNiQziMo.

I've got it on my Wishlist but I'm going to probably wait for some more reviews and a sale.

Darn, I just checked and it doesn't look like there's much hope for the developer porting it to the Switch. Seems like it could be a pretty good fit.

Another RTS hater here. I can count the number of RTS games that I actually enjoyed on one hand (with fingers left over) and none of those were traditional RTS in one or more ways.

It was said in jest of course, naturally a ton of people aren't playing Tooth and Tail but it's a cute game that like I said, harkens back to Kohan.

I had never heard of Tooth and Tail until I saw its title in this thread. Based on this video, it looks entertaining.

Thanks for the heads-up. I will probably purchase Tooth and Tail eventually.

Nice article on how accessible this game is

I only play single player so if no one but me is playing the game, that's fine :) Just wanted to draw attention to what I think is a very very good Think-Outside-the-Box RTS.

Words like "streamlined" and "accessible" generally send me running away from a game.

I do like the theme and visuals, though. They should probably not call it 'Real Time Strategy' and instead maybe a new tag of 'Casual Strategic Combat' or something.

Don't mind the grumps. ;) You and the video overviews sold me on the game.

Am not playing, but definitely will give it a shot with a decent discount, unless it turns out to be the holy grail for old, whiny PC gamers who think Age of Empires/Dune/Command and Conquer and the various Warcrafts were the last of the great RTSs (that would be me). If that turns out to be the case, instant buy for me :P

Tooth and Tail looks really good, and I'll probably pick it up on PS4. I just have to get through the new XCOM expansion, my latest King of Dragon Pass game, Pyre, Warhammer 2 later this month...
