Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire is an episodic turn-based tactics RPG with beautiful Banner Saga-esque rotoscoped animation, challenging turn based combat and a deep, character driven story.
Set on a world that has fallen into a medieval dark age after the collapse of space faring civilisation, You are Princess Tahira of Avestan, who is returning to aid her knigdom after exploring the lands to the South.
Gameplay is satisfyingly challenging and tactical, drawing inspiration from X-Com, Fire Emblem, Advance Wars and The Banner Saga. Tahira goes to lengths to tie the story into the gameplay, with vital objectives you must complete in each battle. It’s never just ‘defeat the opposition’, you can be rescuing civilians, layimg ambushes aor holding a town long enough for civilians to flee.
The current alpha build is VERY early in development so it’s pretty rough around the edges, but it impresses with it’s intuitive battle system and gorgeous animation. We really can’t wait to see more of this impressive rotoscoped tactical RPG.
