À propos de ce jeu

Grotesque Tactics allie caractéristiques et clichés des jeux de rôle asiatiques et occidentaux tels que Final Fantasy Tactics ou Fire Emblem, vous délivrant un jeu très addictif et divertissant qui vous changera des jeux de rôle sérieux habituels. Ce jeu a pour objectif d'exploiter la passion du genre RPG stratégique tout en développant une histoire amusante et des dialogues tordants, parodiant amicalement les jeux du genre les plus populaires, d'Oblivion à Final Fantasy, en passant par Le Seigneur des Anneaux.

Afin de protéger le royaume du culte sans merci "The Dark Church", qui a assassiné tous les héros et chevaliers du royaume, vous devrez enrôler des soldats douteux et sauver de jeunes filles jalouses qui se battront à vos côtés, telles des groupies. Une dizaine de héros pourra être déployée dans des combats tactiques visant à vaincre les membres du culte "The Dark Church" et leurs mystérieuses capacités spéciales.


  • Des combats tactiques en tour par tour parsemés d'animations amusantes atypiques d'un jeu de rôle
  • Une équipe composée de personnages avec leur caractère propre, tel que l'arrogant Holy Avatar, Vampire Solitaire l'assoiffé de sang, l'adorable mais colérique Angel Angelina et plein d'autres
  • De somptueux paysages et villages ainsi que donjons sombres et sinistres
  • Des jeunes filles légèrement habillées à libérer des griffes de monstres impitoyables
  • Des boss de fin énormes, finement détaillés et plutôt furieux...
  • Des éléments typiques de tout jeu de rôle qui se respecte : quêtes, trésors, commerce, niveaux d'expérience, équipement et personnalisation d'un groupe de héros uniques
  • Des dialogues à choix multiples sympathiques dans la lignée des jeux d'aventure classiques tels Monkey Island ou Maniac Mansion

*Aux échecs, un Grotesque est un problème ou une étude qui met en place une situation souvent fantaisiste dans laquelle, typiquement, quelques pièces blanches doivent faire face à une armée de pièces noires (on parle plutôt d'«échecs féériques» en français). Ces situations sont généralement censées être humoristiques.

Grotesque Tactics, developed by an indie German studio by the name of Silent Dreams in a joint venture with Headup Games, is a turn-based strategy game in the same vein as Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, or any of the other hundreds of games with "Tactics" tacked on to the title. But let me clear the air here: unlike the aforementioned games, Grotesque Tactics is bad. Not "bad" as in Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing bad, but more like "all I wanted for Christmas was a Nintendo 3DS but all I got was a Nokia N-Gage" type of bad. You know, the type of disappointment you get when you are hyped up on all the good things, but are let down on every level.

The plot is nothing to write home about. There are no plot twists, no overly-emotional scenes, nothing. Just you and your party against an evil empire. You play Drake, a drop-out from the Glory Military Academy. By a stroke of luck, the very fact that you were the only dropout in the history of the academy has saved you from death in battle at the hands of the Dark Church (the aforementioned evil empire). Being mopey and emo (and yes, the game makes use of "emo" way too much), Drake finds the courage to fight back against the Dark Church with the help of the Semidivine Holy Avatar, the stereotypical "I'm better than you, and women love me" beefcake of the game. Together, you and Holy scour the world rescuing maidens, recruiting party members, and completing side-quests. Like I said before, it's nothing to write home about.

On that note, I should mention the writing. I'm guessing Silent Dreams hired a 16-year old high-school dropout to translate the game for them, because even though the game has had an extensive grammar overhaul for the English version, the writing would make even a first-year college student cringe in terror. Grammar and spelling mistakes abound, and any hint of humor the game wanted to convey has been lost due to the horrid translation. For example, Candy, one of the three maidens you rescue and recruit, constantly says "Hihihihihi" instead of "Hehehehehe" or *giggles*. The only thing that would make that worse is if Navi from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was put in the game and constantly said "HEY! LISTEN!" every ten seconds. But even then I would have fond flashbacks to my time playing an infinitely-better game. Grotesque Tactics just makes me want to punch babies.

And then there's the humor. I'd like it to be known that humor is NOT universal; it is purely subjective. Unfortunately, the game is billed as a parody of other great games. If anything, Grotesque Tactics is a parody of computer game designing. There is a difference between parodying a game and simply referencing a game, and Grotesque Tactics references the hell out of other games. The humor is extremely in-your-face, much like playing an interactive version of the Meet The Spartans movie. While it's not as ham-fisted as UnEpic, at least UnEpic is a good game.

The entire cast is a tragedy upon game design. The main character is an emo who isn't really emo all that much except in certain combat situations, the supporting character is the stereotypical knight-in-shining-armor with sunglasses, the rogue is a goblin who joins you because you killed his buddies, and various other travesties. Oh, and if any reader of this review is black and you want to see how German game developers portray black people, play this game. The only way the token black dude could get more stereotypical is if he had fried chicken in one hand and purple drank in the other. Yes, this is what Silent Dreams considers a parody. Sad, is it not?

From the moment you boot up the game, you can already tell you're in for a world of hurt. The pre-game loading screen features Holy Avatar and the three maidens, but the whole thing looks like it was made in Poser. Then the game starts and the Poser-like art is replaced by anime character portraits. Holy is pretty much the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ of the group, while the three maidens and other female characters are in various states of undress. Let's not forget that while you are rescuing said maidens to recruit them, they are screaming about getting their clothes torn off. The character interaction, combined with the almost-ecchi artwork makes me believe that this game is the lead designer's attempt at a VERY bad self-insert fanfiction rather than a clever satire of RPGs.

And finally we come to the meat and potatos of the game: the gameplay. As I've said before, it's a clone of the various Tactics games you see or have seen on the market. Turned-based strategy on a battlefield with positioning. Nothing new, so let's move into what makes Grotesque Tactics stand out from the crowd (other than the sad attempt at German humor).

The really big thing about the game is the Obsession system. The game flat-out tells you in the tutorial that this is a limit break (I'm guessing Silent Dreams' thought process was "LOLOLOLOL! I MADE A FINAL FANTASY 7 REFERENCE! LAUGH, PEONS! LOLOLOLOL!"). Each character has their own way of increasing their Obsession, from hitting stuff (Drake) to getting hit (EVERY SINGLE PARTY MEMBER). Each Obsession does their own unique thing, but more often than not it involves the obsessed party member attacking another party member. West goes berserk, attacking anything in range (friendly or not), the maidens and the angel simply attack a party member, the goblin rogue blinds everyone in a radius (again, no thoughts to friendly fire) and warps to Holy, and Drake buffs nearby party members' attack rating but at the cost of halving his attack rating a few turns afterwards. Drake is obviously the most benefitial of the party, but that's not saying much considering everyone else is geared toward screwing you over.

Inside combat, you control all characters in order based on their agility. Outside of combat, however, you can only control Drake while the others automatically follow him. This works out fine, except for one major game-breaking bug that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me: Afflictions aren't removed once combat is over. In the battle leading up to getting the mage party member, West went berserk due to his Obsession. I ended combat right next to a treasure chest in a narrow 1x1 area in the forest with West blocking the only exit in or out. Since he was technically still berserk, he refused to move, and I cant move through party members. Needless to say, I was stuck and had to reload the entire damn mission. Have I told you yet how much I hate this game?

And lastly, I come to the deal breaker: the camera. Or, rather, the automatic camera panning. Any time there is dialogue or a character is moving, the camera will pan to that character. This isn't such a big deal if the damn thing would actually CENTER on said character. Instead, it trails behind a moving character. Trying to manually compensate for this means your camera goes out of whack and ends up 50 feet in some random direction. Again, this wouldn't be such a big deal if we could turn automatic camera panning off, or if movement outside of combat wasn't in real time. Alas, no on both accounts. This will, more often than not, lead to clicking the wrong square or giving you a fit of nauseua.

Funny Indie game. If you liked The Bard's Tale give this one a try. If you're only into serious games this is not for you. It's pretty casual and the technical basis is not the best but I could play through withou any severe bugs.

I've played this game through twice. I liked the humor, it's definitely a casual game. People that are looking for a more complex game are going to find it lacking all sorts of depth. The camera shifts that follow the party are annoying, but not detrimental. I thought that the gameplay system that some people complain about was also a parody in and of itself. Concerning the emo phases, you just have to plan ahead, knowing at some point, looking at their meters, that they are going to enter into their various emo phases. I found it added another dimension to the tactics, having to plan for that. I picked this game with the second on sale, I thought it was well worth the sale price.

if u like tactical rpgs this is a great game. cant really find the right words to express how great this game is other then u need to play it to understand.

there is only so many weapons and armour in the game but it is enough to satisfy as u arent playing for hordes of items. and yes there is a few bugs but they dont break the game and only 1 is a crashbug towards end of the game by an optinal golem which if beat quick enough and move away from the spot it wont crash u and u will know the point when u reach it.

but overall u got ur parodys ur semidivine hero and the maidens alongside drake ur gothic style commander and well ur perverted goblin? u got the lovely yet easy to ♥♥♥♥ off fallen angel and a beserker ish warrior. oh and might i add there is vampires? its a great game and sidenote try to beat it without using ur potions as weapons and armour early on is alot better use of coins and potions are only really needed if ur not that great at tactical rpgs.
overall a very enjoyable tactical parody rpg which i would play again <3 10 of 10

It lacks complexity and depth, and it lacks content. There's really no character development and areas are used several times for different scenarios. That being the case, it's still quite entertaining and very much worth the small price I paid for it. I'm definitely looking forward to more from these develpoers. I recommend it to anyone who can just enjoy a fun little game without expecting too much.

There aren't many grid-style movement, tactical, turn-based RPGslike this. There is a good handful, but by no means are there many compared to other similar genres. This is a pretty great game if you are a fan of the genre. If you aren't that big of a fan of the genre, then this may not be a good game for you. The thing is: this game is technically a parody RPG. However, ironically, it winds up being a pretty good game in the genre it is trying to parody-- even though it is pretty simple and minimalistic.

So the game doesn't have very much depth in the departments of tactics or RPG elements-- which many other games of the genre do have. Each character is a set "class" and only learns 2 "spells", you don't choose them. There are only really one set of weapons/armor for each character that you acquire through the game. The story is linear and there are no choices. But even without all that depth the game is still charming in its own right. Everyone has a set class with set abilities, so it takes a lot of the tactical aspects of party formation out of the game which many other games of the genre have, but you still have to plan your actions on the battle-grid accordingly, so there are some tactical decisions to be made-- just mostly only on the battlefield.

You need to go into the game understanding it's supposed to be simple and whimsical and then you can enjoy it for what it is.

The characters are purposefully cliché and it works out in a charming way. And even though the tactical elements are minimalistic, it fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the game. The story, and the way the events occur are also purposefully cliché in a charming way. The graphics and sounds are fitting with the game, nothing jaw dropping but nothing jarring. Importantly, the game seems to work just fine-- I think I only had one crash in 12 hours. The game is just fun, simply-- especially to a fan of the genre itching for a novel experience...

So even though this game is just a "parody," and therefor is simplistic compared to others in the genre-- it is a welcome addition to a small list of games to a true fan of an amazing genre.

I wanted to like this game. I really did. The over the top parody involving a self-loathing hero, a self-adoring tag-along who thinks he is a stereotypical babe magnet and is in fact a stereotypical babe magnet, and a plethora of stereotypical babes sounds like a real winner. Trouble is, this parody tries to push every aspect of the game and genre only to feel as if it is a parody of itself when jokes fall flat or are taken far enough to no longer be funny. Meanwhile the gameplay is hindered by poor camera positioning and a system where battles drag on well beyond the point of enjoyment.

The general ideas and foundation of the game are solid enough, but the execution leaves me underwhelmed. If you are not a strategy RPG fan, this game really has nothing to offer. Otherwise, it comes down to a matter of personal taste.

If you want a fun story and don't care much about strategy or buggy graphics and awkard controls, this game is for you.

However, if you like strategy games (as I do) stay away. The combat is heavily (and I mean heavily) based on luck, and can be frustrating to anyone who expects a strategy game to be based on strategy and tactics.

Grotesque Tactics is a turn-based strategy parody, that pokes fun
of other standard RPG games. The music is done very well, and keeps the
pace and atmosphere of the game. Each character represents some form
of a classic hero; be it the warrior, archer, or mage, but does an
excellent job of augmenting the comedic aspects of each one.

The controls and interface are sleek and well done, and I found
the gear progresses with the player in a very balanced way. Tactically,
the game is good for a novice turn based strategist, but the story
appeals to everyone.

One unique twist is the obsession meter, which when filled, the
hero reacts in an unexpected way that may cause damage to anyone. The
combat is simple, but the dialogue is entertaining and intriguing.

The characters and story parody other RPG's in an entertaining
manner, and I enjoyed playing this game. I never felt my time was wasted,
and I can easily recommend this game.

Definitelly not as bad/buggy/dump as i expect. I regret 1$ fo McPixel more than 5$ for this. For sure not for everyone, but if you have sense of german/sexist/"politically not correct" humour you can find it funny.
+special abilities of your heroes (with good chaining they are able kill each other even in battle "for sure you are going to win")

-buggy (according to the forums im really fortunate that game crashed only once and 2-3 times i got stuck in combat mode)
-unbalanced (final battles are insanely tough comparing to regular ones)
-cant keep pace whole the time
-default camera is evil (or is it game design?)
-more loot, better RPG elemnts would be nice
-start of each battle/pathfinding - all members of your group have avatar on the map, turn-based battle begins when someone of your group stands on field in area of sight of enemy, BUT during first round only heroes who have been seen can make their turns. so, thankfully to "good pathfindig/game mechanics" you can start battle with your healer and rogue agains 4-5 enemies, which means instant death for both of them.
average small game, satirical turn-based RPG.Dont expect too much and you will enjoy it.

What can i say about this game? It tries to be a comedy, and it's actually very funny.

The history is very simple, the graphics aren't good, the battle system can be a little confusing, it has some bugs and crash from time to time.

So, why am i recommending this game?

Even with it's problems, this game is very fun to play.
The characters are unique, different personalities, some based on stereotypes.
There are jokes and references all around this game, Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Lord of the Rings and others.
If you don't care about the graphics and the gameplay looked interesting for you, you can give it a shot.
Try looking for a discount or a bundle if you liked.

This is a fun, unapologetic, albeit at times buggy game. Love the dialogue and the gameplay. It is linear but the dialogue and content make up for what could have otherwise been less than adequate. I had a smile on my face throughout most of the game and found my self laughing and chuckling at other times.

This game is greatly underrated for a reason or another, while I do admit that the graphics are rather bad compared to some other games out there but really you do have to understand that this game is sold cheaply on Steam so you shouldn’t expect the graphics and functionality to be on the same level as Witcher or Final Fantasy. Also you have to keep in mind that this game is meant to be parody of RPG and JRPG genre which it does quite well and even if there is few bugs it was playable and funny. There were few dull moments sure, but what game doesn't have? After playing it a while I did find myself to be hooked and had to complete the story, so can bad game really hook you? I think not, because I have played some much worse than this and I did not get hooked.

This is a turn-based squad tactics game with easy-to-understand mechanics, and everything you'd expect from the genre in terms of classes, techniques, and so on.
Where it stands out is in the quirky characters (For once you're not some fabled hero-with-the-right-birthmark or small-town boy sent on a quest by a weird uncle). The rag-tag bunch of misfits have to somehow muddle through, and do so with lavish doses of humour and sarcasm. Prepare to watch tropes shredded or inflated until they pop.

Many other reviews have talked about the humor and technical issues you will experience with this game. Based on those reviews you've either decided this game interests you or it doesn't. For anyone still considering Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes, let my tell you why I would recommend it.

What I appreciate about this game is it's casual nature. Sure, I like games that provide a challenge, but every now and then I want something a bit more simple and less challenging, for example, something to play during lunch break. The turn based aspect of this game, by its nature, means I can take my time to plan out my moves without penalty. In normal difficulty the combat is just difficult enough to require that I think about what I am doing, but not so difficult that my party is constantly wiped. Additionally, the game's generous resurrection mechanic means I don't have to be concerned if any of my party (except for one or two key members) are "killed" in battle. While not super challenging, this does keep the story progressing and I find that important when my time is limited and I don't want to be fighting the same battle over and over again just to get to the next stage of the game.

Equipment is also simplified. There is only one type of weapon or armor for each class and whenever you buy/find a new piece, it is obvious if it is better, equivalent or worse than what you already own. This may sound boring to min/max'ers, but is a welcome feature for those of us who want a nice, casual experience without a lot of complicated formulas. Overall, Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes is a fun, entertaining game if you are looking for something that doesn't require a lot of deep, concentrated thought and doesn't expect to be taken too seriously.
