What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Delphyq (Del-fik) Early Access allows us to share our excitement about what we consider as an evolution to the strategy and tactics genre while involving our community in making it better. There are not many new games in this genre that provide realistic combat and a deep single-player experience. By releasing in Early Access, we want the fans of the genre to have something to look forward to, while helping us improve the game, in aspects that matter most to the players, by providing their insights and participating in our discussion page on Steam.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for as long as we deem necessary to deliver the experience that we truly feel our players deserve. We have a very small team working on a very ambitious game, but if the gaming gods bless us, who knows? We might just be able to release the full game in 12-18 months. With your help, it’s possible. We will keep our community informed on the development timeline.”

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

“We are planning to have at least 7 levels in DELPHYQ upon release, new modes, new and improved gameplay, etc. Early Access currently has about 40% of the planned full game content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early access currently has 4-7 hrs of gameplay depending on your approach to the game. All the core elements are in place including an intelligent AI that will challenge you in unfamiliar ways. Although Delphyq’s intriguing story is full of twists and turns, is already completed, only a few cutscenes are included. The three game design pillars of the game (analysis, planning, and execution) are in this Early Access version of Delphyq.”

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

“The Early Access price is set to 50% of the intended price for the full game. Price will increase as more features, levels, and polish are added to the game.”

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

“We plan on having the community take part in major beta testing, give out suggestions, feedback, and help us with bug-hunting. We look forward to your questions, suggestions, and feedback you may have on our Discussion page. You can also reach us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). You can also join and be a part of our Discord community.”

About This Game

Delphyq is a real-time tactics game, one that puts you in the role of a mastermind in command of an elite group of combatants known as the Operatives. Every move, every decision, every action, and reaction you make will influence and decide the outcome of each encounter you will face along the way.

One thing that separates Delphyq from the rest of the strategy and tactics crowd is the way it simulates real combat. Delphyq is not a turn-based game; despite it having a pause mechanic, combat is still handled in real-time. The game’s waypoints, look direction and dynamic cover systems open doors for intense, strategic, and memorable encounters. Advanced functions such as GoCodes and Operative skills provide access to deeper tactical maneuvers to deal with the game’s extremely intelligent utility-based AI enemies.

Each AI unit functions in conjunction with its environment; depending on the situation, it will also try to coordinate with other AI in the field and will attempt to flank the Operatives and/or engage them through the use of cover.

  • REAL TACTICS IN REAL TIME: In Delphyq, combat does not happen in turns. The enemy won’t wait until you’re done firing. That’s why the game provides you access to a robust waypoint and command system which allows you to perform real life military tactics and maneuvers, like Slice The Pie, Flanking, Suppressive Fire, and more.

  • TAKE COVER: The battlefield is an ally to the mindful. Delphyq’s Dynamic Cover System guarantees that nearby cover is always available wherever units may be, allowing you to keep your Operatives alive as they take down the enemy, one area at a time.

  • BE THE MASTERMIND: Analyze. Plan. Execute. Plan from the top and work your way to the bottom with Delphyq’s engaging Overworld and Corkboard with the Intel planning system.

  • WE DON’T PLAY WITH DICE: There’s no such thing as luck in Delphyq. Every hit, miss, victory and defeat are all dictated by your strategy, not a random number generator.

  • NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS: Intrigue and plot twists abound! Follow the story of the ragtag militant team - Operatives, as they commit to the daunting task of taking down the corrupt corporation called 'The Balance'. Witness as the story unfolds with one revelation after another, all culminating into an unexpected conclusion.
