They describe their hand-drawn RPG as X-Com: UFO Defense or Jagged Alliance blending with a "medieval/fantasy setting." It features tactical combat and a strategic map.
RPG and management elements play a central role in Battle Brothers so it's not all fighting. As we hunt down riches and artefacts of power a huge invasion plagues the land.
"You and your Battle Brothers emerge as the people’s last hope to unravel the source of the invasion and strike at its heart," says Overhype Studios. "The game features procedurally generated maps, beautifully hand-drawn artwork, complex and deep gameplay for core players and much more."
The indie Overhype team have set up an official Battle Brothers. The pre-alpha combat demo has just been updated and is to freely sample. Check out the gameplay presentation below.
