Wintermoor Tactics Club – Preview
Wintermoor Tactics Club is a game that boasts as a light tactics RPG but in the heart of it, it is so much more than that. Step into the shoes of Alicia with EVC’s tactical combat game and explore an academy full of surprises.
The game’s story goes with Alicia living her life as a student of the Wintermoor Academy, spending her time free time with her two friends playing Curses & Catacombs in their club room, until something very weird happens. The headmaster of the Academy decides to run a snowball tournament to find out which club is the Ultimate Club, disbanding all other losing clubs in the process.
Alicia takes fate in her hands and leads her club against other clubs at the Academy. That’s where the player comes in.
The game offers some very entertaining light turn-based gameplay, making it quite fun and relaxing to roll through combat before you head off into exploring more of the story and the characters in the game. The fact that you have to control only three characters with very basic abilities (a taunt mechanic, a hook mechanic and some area of effect attacks) makes it very light on the action part. The mix between the exploring via talking to NPCs together with the light tactics action actually makes for a very complete game that does not try to do too much.
We had the chance to play Wintermoor quite a bit but we will not reveal much more until the game officially comes out. What we can tell you right now is that you should most definitely follow the game and check it out once it is out. Oh and, look forward to the review.
The game still has no official release date, but you can follow it for all upcoming news on its Steam page.
