This is the second newsbit today with a strategy twist, with Chronic Logic writing in to tell us v1.4 of their indie strategy/RPG title Kingdom Elemental Tactics has been released. We last covered this when we did an interview at RPGDot, while other readers may recognise Chronic Logic from their well known indie games Gish and Bridge Construction Set. Here is the press release:
More information.August 21st, 2007 - Santa Cruz, California - Chronic Logic announces the release of Kingdom Elemental Tactics version 1.4, a major update to Kingdom Elemental, a real-time tactics game from Chronic Logic and Liberation Games. KE:Tactics takes core game play elements from real-time strategy, tactics, and role-playing games and combines them into a game that is painfully easy to pick up and play without committing your entire life, unless you have no life...in which case you may not find Kingdom Elemental to be an adequate substitute.
Kingdom Elemental features nigh unlimited number of possible tactics by pitting combinations of your upgradeable heroes and their unique abilities against hordes of unique enemies like GIANT RAT MOBS! Everyone loves giant rat mobs with their secret furry pockets full of gold and armor! Seriously no giant rat mobs, but thARR be Pirates! Giant War Pigs! A crypt full of living dead who are just begging to be killed.....again. Knights who no longer say "Ni!", a Flaming DOOM bear who would like nothing more then to BBQ you for lunch, and so much more!
The demo is free to check out so you have nothing to lose...except maybe your soul. In short Kingdom Elemental Tactics is like a whack to the head with a +8 Sword of Awesomeness! Kingdom Elemental is only available for Windows, but we hope to be able to provide an OSX and Linux version in the future.
