What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I am a solo developer and am in need of help finding which parts of the game are most enjoyable and which parts need improvement. Additionally, I am looking for feedback into which art assets or cosmetic details need to be improved or replaced. Lastly, I need assistance in testing the game across a variety of hardware.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“One Year”

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

“I plan to have a more fulfilling story-mode and a larger pool of missions. I plan to include more items and abilities.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Players can hire a set of characters. Each character can equip two classes at a time (each of which can be upgraded). There are 12 total classes. Each character can equip a number of items which provide a variety of bonuses (or new abilities).
Players choose the missions and use the rewards to upgrade characters or buy new equipment.
See "About this" for more details.”

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

About This Game

Cascade Tactics is a tactical RPG full of interesting and interactive abilities. Hire your team, choose your classes, upgrade your equipment, and take on a variety of missions.

Created by a solo developer, Cascade Tactics seeks to recreate the fun of customizing and progressing a squad of characters (Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre). Cascade Tactics' strengths reside in its strategic gameplay, extremely smart AI, and highly customizable team.

Three Game Modes!
Epic Mode for story-mode players
Roguelite Mode for competitive players
Survival Mode for a more challenging story-mode

Interactive Mechanics:
Many actions take time before they are executed. This gives the opponent time to react. Deal damage to the caster to stop the action. Move / Push / Teleport units into or out of danger. Protect the target with another action before he is hit. Change the target of the caster with Silencer's Redirect. These opportunities allow the battles to feel fun and interactive.

Status Effects are linked (or channeled). Deal damage to the caster to stop the status effect.

Features a Dual-class system with interesting synergies.

A Commander can issues commands to other units. A Ninja can attack twice with his weapon. When a character's two classes are Commander and Ninja you can issue commands to other units to attack twice.

A Sentinel can guard tiles with his weapon. A Pyromancer can deal damage to an area with Flames. When a character has both classes, he can guard locations with Flames: casting it anytime an enemy walks on the tile.

An Archer can add any magical ability to his weapon attack. An Ice Mage can cast Ice spells. When combined, you can freeze a target with your weapon.

A Lancer can add cast time to his weapon to deal more damage or add cast time to a spell to increase its area-of-effect.
