What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With Toy Tactics we’re trying to create a new way to play RTS games, and we believe the best way to make our game the greatest it can be is to involve the community in the development process. We hope Early Access will help us to create a much-needed community. Additionally, we believe that guidance from the community will help us to develop a number of new game modes including Sandbox Mode, Tactical Puzzle Mode, and Mercenaries Mode.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Toy Tactics to be in Early Access for 9 to 12 months.”

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

“We are planning for the full version of Toy Tactics to include 5 unique single-player campaigns, 5 different bosses, and online multiplayer. There will also be 3 additional gameplay modes including Sandbox Mode, Tactical Puzzle Mode, and Mercenaries Mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now, Toy Tactics offers 10 hours of full-quality gameplay. Three single-player campaigns are fully playable, each with 12 unique missions, 16 spells, and 18 legendary artifacts. Additionally, a first version of sandbox mode and a few tactical puzzles are available.”

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

“We plan for the final game price to be equal to or a bit higher than the Early Access price. We will try to reward the community with additional content and a strong feedback loop.”

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

“We plan to release updates on development progress every 2-4 weeks on Steam, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. But we will be particularly active in our public Discord server. We expect Discord to offer direct communication with the development team and will help to involve players in giving feedback and providing suggestions.”

About This Game

Toy Tactics is a physics-enhanced RTS where you can sketch unit formations and direct wobbly toys to victory. Under the guidance of legendary generals, master the ability to draw configurations into the battlefield and send miniature legions to war against hordes of undead foes. Load up your army with artifacts and destructive spells to help smash quirky enemies in real-time. Think fast, deploy your units strategically, and lead them to victory!

Battle Toy Troops
Combat skeletal dinosaurs, spooky necromancers and stealthy samurai. Don’t let their outer toy shell deceive you, these bloodthirsty baddies want you to face a wobbly destruction. Battles take place in many types of scenarios and terrains, so expect the unexpected.

Draw & Conquer
Freeze the game action and draw simple formations to charge, encircle, and even chase down your enemies. Send them marching forward in wacky patterns, a straight line, or surround and protect your commander. When it comes to moving your allies, only your imagination is the limit. The battlefield is a canvas, and you are its artist.

Hilarious Physics
Helmets are sure to roll. Watch your toy units bobble, fight, and get flung across the battlefield. Send structures flying and castle walls crumbling. Witness the chaos and destruction unfold in a most epic fashion as the field is flooded with scenes of combat.

Learn Powerful Spells
Unlock spells and unleash them while fighting to turn the tide of battle in your favor. Defeat enemies to charge up your power, then summon reinforcement catapults, quickly construct medical tents to heal allies, or drop flaming meteors onto the heads of your foes.
