Urtuk: The Desolation?

Stumbled on this game, official release today but it was on early access for a year.

I don't know anything about this game, but it looks real cool to me.

Has anyone played it, and would they recommend?

I've been playing Urtuk for a while now in EA. It's a really solid tactics game. It seems really simple at first, but the game mechanics are really fun, and choosing how you build your units makes a huge difference in play style.

Don't take the difficulty settings suggestions lightly! I got cocky and started my first game on the 2nd highest difficulty. At that difficulty the game regularly puts you in fights where your team is outnumbered 5 to 1, and even choke points can only do so much to help.

I get into it for a few days at a time and then step away and come back every few weeks. The devs are also really actively engaged with the Steam community, and they have a discord server for even faster communication with the dev team. I personally love supporting indie devs who engage with their players like this, and the game is really fun. I highly suggest it.

Don't expect a FFT clone. It's nothing like the FFT era of japanese tactical games. It's closer to a western tactics board game, but with character progression through mutation absorption. The story is very sparse. I personally play it for the tactical gameplay, and know very little about the story.

Edit: Oh, and Vit and Agi are the early game godstats.

Definitely recommend it. Very solid game with fun mechanics. Requires a lot of strategy. Be advised the way focus works is kind of weird but you get the hang of it towards mid game when it actually is necessary.

Played it and the game is absolutely amazing! Definitely worth the shot if you like strategic and challenging games 🙂

On top of that, it has a pretty neat soundtrack 🙂

Yeah I've been playing this one and I'm a huge fan of FFT. It doesn't quite scratch the full itch.. but it does come pretty close. Maybe like a 70% scratch

If there were a jobs system and if you could recruit at will, I might change my mind.
