Turn-based strategy with RPG elements meets football! It’s a game for those who enjoy any combo of turn-based mechanics, team development, tycoon-style games and football. It is inspired more by the likes of JRPGs, Civilization, and XCOM rather than by Football Manager.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We went to the Early Access when the game wasn't polished enough. For the last year, we improved Football Tactics significantly thankfully to the players' active participation and feedback. Now, when the game is finished, the Early Access serves as a message that we didn't stop. We continue adding new features to the game with the help of the players' feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is complete, but we decided to continue adding new features. So we are going to stay in the Early Access while we are adding new nice features.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“For the time the game has been in the Early Access, we implemented all features we planned. But we are going to add even more features: statistics, coach's leveling with different abilities, new tactical elements, coach's story, choosing different coaches at the start of the game, and other interesting features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already complete. It contains Campaign mode, club management, achievements, trading cards, modifications support, good graphics, detailed Face Editr, and turn-based matches. But we are going to continue improving it.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will increase as we add new major updates and after the final release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Thankfully to our community, Football Tactics already became much better. Players wrote their suggestions, and we heard them. Players proposed help, and we took it. Players even helped us to translate the game to few additional languages. With your help we want to make Football Tactics even better.”

Dev News - New Screens



Hi, all! Here’s how the development is going:

1. We finally implemented the long-awaited feature! The screen where you can see both your and opponent’s teams. We wanted it to show enough information for your tactical preparations. As a result, the screen shows not only pitch with the footballers’ positions, but also the list of the attributes, skills and classes. Also, on hovering the shirts, the small hint appears which shows the main information about this footballer.



2. All this time we have been testing the new classes system. There is a screen which shows the classes your footballers learned in the matches:



Both screens are still in the prototyping stage - many things might change.

3. In one of the recent news, I wrote about skills upgrading system. All this time we have been testing it. And it appeared that the new system is not fun and deep enough.

So we decided to significantly improve it. Now we are working on the new more elaborate system. It will be something great.

We really want to tell you about other not very big but important improvements which we are doing at the same time with prototyping the system of the classes. But I will tell about them only when they are implemented ;)

Main Theme of Football Tactics



When Football Tactics first appeared on Steam, it only had one music track which was becoming old by the day.

During the development of Football Tactics, we have added a dozen of the new beautiful background melodies and today we want to introduce the main theme of the game - Above the Clouds.

Its author is one of our players - Václav Vedral, who is a professional musical composer and producer. The vocal belongs to a talented Czech singer Karolína Přibylová. She was in a top-10 girls list of the Czech Idol show in 2015.

The song talks about an underdog who wants to become a champion. When you have a passion, when your heart is beating - it’s the best football tactics.

“I am not FIFA fan, I don't even like football. But the way developers made the game totally won me over”
Valentine_girl

“Do you like playing soccer games, like FIFA, but wish you could focus more on strategy rather than execution? If so, you'll probably enjoy this game. I love it!”

“Love child of Football Manager and Civilization franchise”

About This Game



There are many games based around 'development': you can develop your country, a theme park, a video game company, pizzeria, alchemy shop and so on. But there has NEVER been a strategy game based on developing your football club!

Sure, there are hardcore football simulators, but it's difficult to play them and, even more importantly, they don't give you enough feedback to assess the accuracy and wisdom' of your decisions.

Football Tactics is a game about a coach who no-one believes in. So to prove them wrong, he takes an amateur club and attempts to raise it to the pinnacle of world football! Playing the role of this coach, you start out with an old stadium which has just a single bench for your fans.Your goal is for your team to become so successful that you will ultimately transform this worthless bench into an arena with 80 000 seats by which time your club will have won all the major prestigious trophies in world football!

You play matches by utilizing the unique, turn-based mechanics, at the same time developing your club to its highest potential. Your decisions concerning team development affect the match results so choose wisely because your results, in turn, affect the strategic development of your club.
