The minimalist lane-based strategy game TOWER IN THE SKY: TACTICS EDITION is launching May 1 on Steam. Don’t let the cute visuals fool you: Tactical thinking and fast decision-making are required if you intend to survive the bloody battles ahead 🙂
THE STORY SO FAR
After an apocalypse leads to the collapse of civilization as we know it, the rich and powerful flee to an orbiting space station. To maintain life support, these so-called “Ancients” send a single spaceship down to Earth every thousand years to gather resources required for their survival… The problem is that you’re one of the people who was left behind – and the arrival of the spaceship has plunged the Kingdom of Tyrune into utter chaos.
Do you have what it takes to unravel the mystery behind the Tower in the Sky and stop the Ancients from pillaging your homeworld?
Build the ultimate squad from a dozen different playable heroes, and place your champions across four different combat lanes – each filled with invading enemies of all shapes and sizes. All characters have unique stats and abilities – and they can be equipped with a huge variety of weapons, items, and collectible T-shirts. Killing enemies gives your characters crystals that can be used to buy upgrades from a Skill Tree – making them even more effective in combat!
Battle and strategize against dozens of unique enemy types across a full single-player campaign that spans a thousand years. Meet a colorful cast of NPCs as you explore the Kingdom of Tyrune and stop the Ancients dead in their tracks.
(Oh, and if you manage to get through the campaign, a New Game+ mode is unlocked for increased difficulty …)
