The tactical RPG Capes will be released in May:

Capes - Meet the Team: Rebound


Ten years ago, the supervillains won.

Since then they've created a dystopian city where developing super powers is a crime. Nobody has managed to slow them down, until now.

Capes in a turn based superhero strategy game where you build a team of heroes and fight to take back the city.

Key Features


  • Recruit new heroes, train them up, and save the city.
  • Fight across scores of different locations in turn based combat scenarios.
  • Team up with your allies to unlock unique abilities.
  • Stand against a variety of superpowered enemies.
  • Uncover the secret histories behind the heroes and villains of the piece.
  • Take your place amongst the champions in this high octane superhero drama.
Thanks Couchpotato!

Hmm I like super hero stuff and after Midnight Suns have a taste for more. Will have to look into it more.

EDIT: It has a demo, so will try it.

Let us know what you think after you play the demo. I played it last year and didn't really care for it.

I felt like the groundwork for a good game is there, but it was ruined by too many waves of enemy reinforcements that just drop in on top of you. Also, the maps are quite small.

I thought it was okay, but that's about it. The waves of enemies did get a little tiresome.

I didn't get very far as you couldn't remap keys and I always remap WASD to the arrow keys. If I can't do that in a game I don't usually get far in it. It was a bit corny but I still liked the atmosphere. I can deal with waves, they had them in Midnight Suns. However, MS also had a very cool relationship and explore aspect back at the base which I don't think this will have. So, for now not interested. I still appreciated them having a demo though.

I'm quite keen on this one and I recently played Midnight Suns, though I am no fan of cards mechanics within games. It was worth tolerating for a decent story and good exploration, though my yearning to play Colossus went unsatisfied. -xxx

Used to be a deal breaker for me too not being able to remap WASD to arrow keys.
Now I just use the FN+W keys on my keyboard and it automatically swaps them.

Thanks although don't know what you mean. I realize its silly sounding to others but my desk has a pull out part I have my keyboard and mouse on - there is not a lot of space. So I tend to use the right hand side as it is close to my mouse and I can see what I am doing. The WASD keys are way on the left, also the left side sits off the board a little, meaning if I hit too hard it bounces. So ... I like to map all keys to the right side area so I can mouse K/M easily and see things.

EDIT: NM someone on twitter, completely unrelated to this, just explained what FN+W was.

Animations didn't look that good in the video. I love the superhero stuff, but this game is looking more and more dubious.
