Indie development studio Point Blank Games has unveiled its first project. Titled Shock Tactics, it is a single player turn-based sci-fi strategy game featuring tactical combat, exploration, squad management and base building.
Point Blank Games’ first project is inspired by the space western style of Firefly and games like Jagged Alliance and X-COM. The game is set on an ancient alien homeworld, procedurally generated each time you start a new game.
In Shock Tactics, players take control of a trailblazer for the first wave of explorers on an alien planet while the ruthless Mega-Cooperation Consortium sends their mercenary forces to uncover the secrets of the planet.
Players are required to establish a base of operations, gather resources and expand your base in order to research advanced weapons or healing facilities. Lead your strike team into tactical turn-based fights and choose from a large variety of different skills and tactics.
Shock Tactics will release digitally later this year for PC via Steam.
