About This Game

The path of virtue is for suckers! In Happy Bastards, you play as Kev, a shameless opportunist who will stop at nothing to become the land's most famous "hero". Dazzle the locals with tall tales. Make deals with gullible monsters. Seduce attractive elves into one-night stands. Everyone is expendable, most of all, the band of happy bastards you recruit as mercs to take all the risks while you enjoy the high life. Because in this world, you make a name for yourself through the loot you find, the monsters you kill, and how badass of a show you put on. How will YOU forge your path to fame?

Happy Bastards is a deep tactical RPG with turn-based combat and real-time world exploration:
  • Recruit, upgrade, and customize procedurally-generated mercenaries, each with their own attributes, skills, perks, appearance and personality.
  • Engage in highly tactical grid-based combat, on small conflict-heavy battlefields.
  • Deploy your tactics against a large variety of enemy squads, on battlegrounds that support all manner of approaches.
  • Overcome injuries, dismemberment and permadeath through unorthodox remedies like grafting, transmogrification and raising the dead.
  • Explore a rich hand-crafted world full of distinctive towns, dungeons, and events reflective of their geographical location.
  • Interact with fascinating NPCs, including heroes, mayors, monster faction leaders, town celebrities, and more.
  • Witness your actions influence the real-time simulation of NPCs and monsters, evolving the world in impactful ways.
  • Enjoy high replayability thanks to the many randomly-determined game elements combined with the emergent nature of NPC actions and interactions in the world.

Fame is the Name of the Game
Why risk lifting a sword when your disposable mercs can do all the dirty work? Just rely on your silver tongue and shamelessness to build your claim to fame, one flashy act at a time.

Tend to Your Unruly Bastards
These ruthless warriors are as dumb as a bag of rocks. Be prepared to babysit in and out of combat as your bastards argue, cause mischief, and speak their minds. Who said being the boss would be easy?

Be Hands-On at Arm's Length
Shout commands from a safe distance while your bastards execute each of your combat tactics. Whether ordering a perfectly-timed tag-team ability or sacrificing a human meat shield, you make the call, but never take the fall.

All the Scheming, None of the Guilt
Lead a morally-bankrupt campaign across a parody-filled fantasy world. Every town, hero, and monster faction can be turned ally or foe, so choose wisely because you'll have to live—and your bastards likely die—with the consequences.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

The game includes non-graphical sexual content, such as the player's characters going to the brothel or spending the night with an NPC. The game also involves consumption of alcohol or drugs by the player's characters. All of this is presented in a cartoony and humorous way.
