In the latest Indie Highlights video, Nintendo revealed a Feb. 1 launch date for the turn-based strategy game Wargroove (Chucklefish), along with the first details on the next game in the SteamWorld universe, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech (Image & Form Games/Thunderful Publishing), and more.
Wargroove—Players choose their Commander and wield their army’s units in a war between battling factions. Up to four players can strategically sway the battle in their favor as they progress through the campaign, challenge each other in local and online multiplayer modes, or design battlefields and stories with the in-game editor and customization tools.
SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech—This team-based card collecting role-playing game is set to an epic story around what it means to be a hero. With billions of potential decks to build, tongue-in-cheek humor, a storybook-inspired art style and memorable characters, the game is a unique addition to the SteamWorld franchise.
