Zodiac Legion - Combat Demo Available

by Silver, 16:49

The combat demo for Zodiac Legion is now available on Steam.

The combat demo of Zodiac Legion is out

Dear players,

I uploaded a demo of some of our dungeon missions to Steam.
There is no tutorial yet, so you need to refer to the manual if you want to know the game rules (which I recommend!).
It is located in the Steam ZodiacLegionFolder/docs/Zodiac Legion Demo Manual.pdf
The Steam folder should be somewhere like:
D:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Zodiac Legion
You can also find the online version here.

The current version is quite rough, especially when it comes to pacing and balance.
There is no geoscape yet, except for party selection. But that would give you an idea of the way combat and dungeon crawling work in the game.

We would also thank all the players who applied for our alpha test. We got more applications than keys, so we had to suspend the process for the time being.
But the preview build and demo build are identical at this stage, so if you could not apply in time, or would like to try the game while I request a few more keys, you can try the demo build.

Cheers,
Alexandre and the Zodiac Legion team

Thanks Farflame!

Zodiac Legion - Announced for 2022

by Hiddenx, 17:53

The tactical RPG Zodiac Legion has been announced:

Zodiac Legion is a turn-based tactical RPG featuring lethal combat, squad management and strategic elements. Lead your heroes through daring raids and forgotten ruins, defend your land in a time of conquest and betrayal, and master the secrets of volatile ancient magic to restore a realm beset by the armies of undying fiendish sorcerers.

Features

  • Lead your knights in turn-based tactical battles.
  • Explore ancient ruins and places of power, thwart the plans of enemy lieutenants, forge alliances, and restore the Zodiac Order.
  • Smash your way through fully destructible dungeons.
  • Expand and strengthen your stronghold, research new spells and craft powerful artifacts.
  • Reshape the terrain to your advantage.
  • develop Your Warriors into Mighty Champions.

As the Grandmaster of the Zodiac Order, it will be your duty to restore this knightly brotherhood and rally its champions under the banners of the thirteen Zodiac signs. You will manage your domain, take important diplomatic decisions and train your warriors in the arcane arts. Enemy armies will invade your borders, forcing you to dispatch your knights on missions resolved through turn-based, tactical battles. Their superhuman powers will tip the scales in the face of overwhelming odds, but beware: many will not survive the ordeal. Yet exploring the secrets of necromancy may reveal that a Zodiac Knight's duty need not end in death.

The work on Zodiac Legion began because we shared the vision of a game that would combine the tactical combat and strategic campaign of X-COM, with the fantasy aspects and dungeon crawling typical of most roleplaying games.

We decided to use the theme of the Zodiac because of its association with classical mythology, and due to its ties with distinct character archetypes, which served as the foundation of our class system. There are hundreds of distinct features and qualities attributed to the signs by astrology, which lends itself to a robust and interconnected system that has an impact on all the aspects of Zodiac Legion's gameplay and storytelling.
