Epitaph, a new and very interesting game coming from New Work, wants our support on Steam Greenlight.
Epitaph was recently featured at IndieCade and EVO 2016 and is a tactical fighting game that combines the thoughtful strategy of games like Fire Emblem with the speed and excitement of games like Street Fighter. Each player commands a team of three Reapers, the many faces of death, to steal souls away from your enemies and conquer the afterlife.
A unique real-time, cooldown-based combat system challenges players to form combos between their combatants, setting up brutal moves and countering the plans of their opponent. But be careful – every time a character dies, they come back stronger, so moving closer to victory will also make your opposition even more formidable
Epitaph includes features such as:
- 13 Unique Reapers
Characters embodying a number of fighting styles, from the crushing melee combat of Unch, the Reaper of Ingestion, to the evasive and supportive Ziyan, the Reaper of Mercy.
- Draft and Quickplay Combat
Take the time to carefully select the perfect combatants for your team, or just grab three random Reapers and get to fighting.
- Online and Local Multiplayer
Capture the souls of your friends or strangers from across the internet.
- Puzzle Mode
Or, if you’re looking for a more individual challenge, try and solve devious puzzles in a single set of moves. We’ll have many puzzles at launch, ranging from introductory and informative to devilishly hard.
