Here is their brand new trailer:

 

Chroma Squad is a tactical RPG that follows five stunt actors who quit their jobs to start their own TV show inspired by the Power Rangers. In this unusual story, you’ll cast actors, buy equipment, upgrade your studio, and craft weapons and giant Mechas out of cardboard and duct tape. Once its action time, you will take control of your cast of colorful warriors as they fight in dramatic, turn-based battles. Chroma Squad pays homage to the Power Rangers, the original Japanese series that it was born from, and the Tokusatsu genre.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
