Last year I became a fan of Rose City Games, due in large part to the creativity of their projects. I’m an admirer of Cat Lady, but I also thought The World Next Door looked neat, and find the upcoming Garden Story to be utterly charming. But one genre they haven’t yet tackled is the tactical RPG, which just so happens to be one of my favorites. Enter Floppy Knights.
Animated with the delightful cartoon style of Marlowe Dobbe, which I know from the fantastic and ball-busting rogue game Dicey Dungeons, Floppy Knights looks to marry deck building and tactical grid based fun in one attractive package. Apparently the game was originally from a “concept jam”, and was only waiting til there was a team ready to help Rose City publish it. Enter Bucharest based publisher Those Awesome Guys, known for Monster Prom and Move or Die.
The “floppy” in Floppy Knights refers to how the premise of the game apparently involves summoning hard light knights from floppy disks to fight for you. Which sounds silly and also pretty interesting. The fact that the game will essentially be Advance Wars with the art of Dicey Dungeons has me pretty excited. While it’s true there’s no release date set in stone yet, I’m sure both Rose City and Those Awesome Guys would appreciate if you wishlisted the game on Steam after you check out the cool trailer below. In the meantime, I’ll be counting down the days until I have a chance to try out Floppy Knights for myself!
