7. Voidspire Tactics
‘Voidspire Tactics’ is an indie turn based strategy game that plays very similar to ‘Final Fantasy Tactics’. Developed and published by Rad Codex in the year 2015, it features an open world that is procedurally generated. A lot of focus has been put on exploration and also rewards the player for the same. Similar to other turn based tactical strategy games, you are able to choose a class and then progress through the missions, gaining experience and leveling up your character.
However, the choices in the game are varied, with over 4 different races and 18 classes, each having their own distinction and are different in some aspect or the other from other classes. Therefore, it is quite understandable that it contains quite a number of skills in order to make up for the classes. We really lost count of the number of skills each character has, but we are quite sure that the number is over 100. The environment also sometimes come into play and really has unique interactions with the game world that you will quickly find out. We don’t want to spoil the experience for you and hence won’t speak on this matter anymore, but if you have any simple idea of the elements and how they can impact mortal souls, then you pretty much know what we are talking about. This is one game we highly recommend that you play if you liked playing ‘Final Fantasy Tactics’, mainly due to its hardcore gameplay and in-depth class customizations. The developer also needs to be commended here, as he has been quite dedicated with his projects and we highly recommend that you check out his other tactical games.
