Phantom Brigade

We first saw Phantom Brigade, an upcoming XCOM-inspired strategy game about giant robots with memorable pilots, at PAX West 2017. Last week, developer Tetragon Works announced that it has merged with Brace Yourself Games, the creator of delightful musical dungeon crawler Crypt of the Necrodancer, which is also working on an industrial city sim called Industries of Titan. The pair announced the merger alongside the teaser trailer above.  

Brace Yourself Games is now listed as Phantom Brigade's developer and publisher, so it's clearly got its hands in the game's development. That said, it sounds like Phantom Brigade's vision hasn't changed. Its newly minted Steam page promises "a turn-based tactical RPG, focusing on in-depth customization and player driven stories," which, coupled with the big ol' robots, is what got our attention in the first place. 

For more on Phantom Brigade, check out our interview with Tetragon Works founder Chad Jenkins. 

Thanks, GamesIndustry.

As much as I appreciate Harebrained Scheme’s recent BattleTech game, my robo-tactical heart will forever belong to Square Enix’s Front Mission series. If Crypt Of The NecroDancer studio Brace Yourself Games are trying to win that me over with their turn-based mech game Phantom Brigade, I can say that it’s working better than flowers.

Phantom Brigade has been around for a while. First unveiled in 2016, it was being developed by Tetragon Studios, who have since merged with Brace Yourself. They just released their first trailer, giving us our first peek at its world of future mech warfare and one very big laser rifle. Check it out below, along with a trailer for the studio’s other upcoming game, Industries of Titan.
