New DLC Map Available: Backyard Colosseum + 1 Week Left to Sign Up for The TASTEE Royale: Guns & Gladiators Tournament

We have a brand new TASTEE: Lethal Tactics DLC map available - The Backyard Colosseum!

Located right across the TASTEE diner, the Backyard Colosseum is where mercs cut their teeth and train between missions. What better place to test your mercs’ skills than a modern day scrap yard Colosseum? This arena is filled to the brim with tight twists and turns where scrappy battles quickly erupt. Prepare to battle for each step you take in this claustrophobic setting!

The Backyard Colosseum has
A combination of tight corridors and long lanes to benefit every unit
Unique randomization options for each section of the level
Breakable barriers everywhere for surprise shotgunners
Explosive barrels to light a fire under your feet

Pick up this DLC to challenge your friends or battle the AI in this new TASTEE setting! Get it here:

DLC note: Without the DLC you will still be able to play the new map in two ways:
The map may come up randomly in a Quick Match.
Someone who owns the DLC map can challenge you to a match in it.

Want the map for free? For the month of April we will be giving DLC keys away for free to everyone in the TASTEE Elite. Join the TASTEE Elite here:

New Tournament Announcement! The TASTEE Royale: Guns & Gladiators

Hello Lethal Tacticians!

We are excited to announce our next tournament, The TASTEE Royale: Guns & Gladiators. The tournament will be an asynchronous PvP single-elimination bracket tournament. Signups will be open for the next 3 weeks, and we'll be announcing the tournament bracket on Monday, April 17th. Sign up here:

Why call it Guns & Gladiators? The Tournament will take place across several maps, but will start and finish in our newest map, the Backyard Colosseum - a makeshift arena built for both long-range combat and close-quarter skirmishes. The new map will be added to the game in our next update, and available as DLC. If you'd like to test it out, the beta-version is available for free to everyone in the TASTEE Elite. You can join the Elite here:

One last thing! We just want to give a big shoutout to our last community event winner, Rogdhor, who won the Daily Mission Deadliest! Rogdhor currently holds the highest ever Daily Mission score at 74110! Hopefully you won’t have to face him too early in the Guns & Gladiators tournament!

That’s all for now! Don’t forget, sign-up for the TASTEE Royale: Guns & Gladiators tournament! It’s free and will be open until April 16th. Sign up here:

“TASTEE: Lethal Tactics offers a full-featured package of deep strategic combat that manages to avoid overcomplicating things like controls and menus.”
4.5/5 – We Got This Covered

“I can’t recommend this game enough. While the genre is niche and the game takes patience, the depth is rich and has a ton of replayability.”
4.5/5 – Hey PoorPlayer

“It’s fair to say that TASTEE is probably one of the most tactically fulfilling games on the market at the moment, but it’s also incredibly good fun and is not as complicated as it might at first seem.”
8/10 – GameSpew

New Update Coming Next Week

New Software Update Coming Next Week!

Hi all,

We've been a bit quiet on the announcement front of late but are back with some news to share.

We'll be releasing a software update next week with a brand new feature: Daily Missions

What are Daily Missions?

  • A new single player mission that is generated every day
  • The squad configuration, map, rule set, and enemies are all randomized each day - It'll be a surprise every time!
  • You get one try per day
  • Pass or fail, you get a score that is registered to the daily leaderboard
  • This is something that we've been tinkering with for a little while and wanted to keep it under wraps until we were ready to unveil it.

We've been having a lot of fun with it at our studio and are really excited to finally release it to our player community.

About This Game

One of Destructoid’s top indie games to look for in 2016.

This is TASTEE: we do take out.

You are the director, you will coordinate a master plan using every tool at your disposal. Off the books, unsanctioned and highly illegal, you’ll be doing the dirty work the government can’t.

They are elite, elusive, and deliciously dangerous. Independents and rogues, these mercs do not play well with others and we’re going to cram them all into your rundown diner: TASTEE. They’re an unruly powder keg waiting for a spark...but fortunately most of these guys like explosions. This is your team.

Your job is to recruit these hired guns and form the TASTEE team; use them to orchestrate missions to take down the Cartel. Misfits and outcasts, each merc has refined their own personal MO when it comes to death and destruction. Their unique set of skills is exactly what you’ll need to steal guns, interrupt supply lines, save hostages, formulate traps, and execute epic gunfights on your mission to take down The Cowboy - the big boss responsible for a global crime epidemic. Lethal tactics have been authorized… Good luck.


Single Player Mission Mode:
  • 30 Missions across 10 locations
  • Recruit mercs, each with their own unique skillset
  • Mission Leaderboards - Replay missions, best your own scores and top others’ to climb the global leaderboards.

A Diverse Roster of 12 Mercenaries, Each with Their Own Special Abilities and Weapons
  • Each character has their own particular skill set, their expertise ranging from clever gadgets to lethal combat abilities
  • 4 distinct character classes: Gunmen, Snipers, Shotgunners, Bombers
  • Mix and match your mercenaries to create the optimal squad for each situation
  • Coordinate attacks by pairing units with complementary skills and abilities. For example, Linus breaks through walls, attacking from unexpected locations and opening paths for teammates; pair his skills with Bodark's swift disarming shot to take enemies by surprise and leave them vulnerable.

10 Unique, Randomized Tactical Maps:
  • Rich, detailed locations highlight dramatic cat-and-mouse armed encounters.
  • Destructible environmental objects - Destroy doors and cover objects to alter the playing field.
  • Randomized Maps Elements - Destructible object placement is randomized on all maps, creating different pathways and strategy possibilities for each match.
  • Learn the maps to formulate strategies - Find ideal sniper locations, quick getaways and lanes to lead your opponent into an ambush.

Competitive Online Multiplayer Play:
