“This game has a lot of potential and is very cute and fun. If you're into RPG style titles with adorable realistic animals, this game is for you. Remember, it is in early access, so it will come with some occasional issues, but it's worth it.”

About This Game

Quick note from the developer:

You would like to play a turn based strategy game without experience any world war scenario again and again? Say no more! Timbertales should be your choice!

Timbertales is a fantasy turn based strategy game combined with an unique nature theme, which features forest animals and insects. More races will follow soon. Explore the beautiful nature of Timbertales and prepare for epic battles in the forest!

If you are thinking about buying Timbertales please keep in mind that I am a very passionate strategy gamer myself, but a solo indie game developer. This means the campaign is quite short and the game quality itself is far away from triple A games with hours of content. What I like to offer you is a solid turn based strategy game with a very different approach theme and mechanics wise. Best of all you can get it at the price, where I tend to spend more on a coffee to go.

Make sure to contact me or participate in the community hub if you have any comments, questions or feedback. I appreciate your feedback a lot and I love to implement new features based on community responses. There is a lot of development ongoing at the moment make sure to follow the progress in the latest announcements.

Acorn points are the in game currency to unlock features.

Timbertales is inspired by the following games:

  • Battle Isle
  • Battle World Kronos
  • Advanced Wars
  • Battle of Wesnoth
  • Jagged Alliance

I wanted to create a game, which has the feeling of classical games I played in my childhood, but with a very unique nature theme and challenging content. Unlike 4x turn based strategy games - You will not have to produce units in Timbertales. It is more focused on a table top strategy game approach, where you have to prepare your army before starting the battle.
Every character offer his own abilities and style. You will have the choice for just normal attacking or using very special abilities, like healing, cursing or heavy attacks. More diversity coming soon!

I am looking forward for your support, feedback and comments.
