Grab your calendars and prepare for a week of non-stop action, as TactiCon 2023 is just around the corner. Firesquid and Hooded Horse have teamed up to bring you a mega line-up of over 100 games, demos, panels, and more at this year’s Steam strategy convention. So, buckle up and get ready to strategise like never before!
Kicking off on May 11th, this five-day event promises to be an absolute cracker. The Tacticon hosts, ReneeSky and GamerZakh, are pulling out all the stops for the special showcase at 7:30 PM CEST / 1:30 PM ET / 10:30 AM PT. And let me tell you, they’ve got some fantastic sounding announcements and demos lined up:
Amplitude Studios SAS and SEGA’s Endless Dungeon, a sci-fi strategy roguelite
Auroch Digital and Secret Mode’s space management game Mars Horizon 2: The Search for Life
Clockwork Pile and Retrovibe’s pixel art tactical RPG Shardpunk: Verminfall
EXOR Studios’ survival/tower defense hybrid The Riftbreaker
Roboatino and Goblinz Publishing’s turn-based roguelike Shogun Showdown
But wait, there’s more! Abbey Games is set to announce its next big project, and new gameplay footage is coming for Mimimi Games GmbH’s Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew and League of Geeks’ anime-style colony sim Jumplight Odyssey.
Firesquid and Hooded Horse won’t be sitting idly by either. They’ve got some juicy updates for Blade Prince Academy and several other titles.
And if that’s not enough to get your strategic juices flowing, TactiCon 2023 is packed with developer talks and panels. Keep an eye out for discussions on applying philosophical principles to modern strategy games, the role of ecology and climate, embracing randomness, and the importance of music in strategy games.
The complete list of panels and featured games will be available on the official TactiCon website soon. Make sure to check out their FAQ’s.
