Phantom Brigade - XCom meets Robots (and TB)

Designed as a spiritual successor to games like Front Mission and Armored Core, Phantom Brigade is a modern interpretation of tactical, turn-based mech strategy. With a clean UI, destructible buildings, and pilots that remember how you treat them (like a simple Nemesis System), Phantom Brigade is shaping up to be one of the more exciting tactics games on our radar.

Oh, yeah! Watching this one...

Interesting. Makes me think of an older game called Soldiers: Heroes of World War 2.

Turn-based giant robot combat with a strategic management layer? Sign me up!

Dont tell the big publishers or they'll put a stop to it.

It reminds me of the good old days wit ha good amount of new and totally diverse titles to choose from. Only then it was main companies that made them and today its smaller indies that put a lot of love into them.

Yeah, this is almost a no brainer. As a gamer with decades of experience now, I know that even the best laid plans can fall down hard on execution. Very interested. Taking my normal wait and see approach.
