The following is a press release:
Prepare to Chromatize!
Brasilia, Brazil – March 10, 2015 – The developers from Behold Studios, one of the IGF 2013 winners, just released a teaser video announcing the release date of its anticipated game: CHROMA SQUAD: Tactical RPG inspired by Saban’s Power Rangers™.
Successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign, Chroma Squad will be released through Steam – PC/Mac/Linux – on April 30, 2015. Kickstarter backers and fans that pre-ordered the game at www.chromasquad.com received an exclusive opportunity to preview the game before the release.
The game was nominated for the SXSW Gamers’ Voice prize as one of the best indie games of the year. Gamers will have a chance to play Chroma Squad at the SXSW interactive expo held at the Austin Convention Center on March 12-15.
In Chroma Squad, players will manage a sentai television studio, casting actors, purchasing equipment and crafting weapons and giant mechas out of cardboard and glue to create their own sentai TV show. Once the cameras are rolling, players will control their cast of five colored-jumpsuit-clad warriors in dramatic, turn-based battles. The developers behind the game grew up watching sentai series like Flashman and Changeman, as well as Saban’s Power Rangers, which had a particularly huge influence on the creation of Chroma Squad.
