Tactical Roguelike ‘Mech Armada’ Stomps Into Early Access

Smash massive monsters with custom mechs in this fast-paced, roguelike turn-based strategy

Canada, 11 August, 2021 – Mech Armada has officially entered Early Access and brings with it a brand new gameplay trailer.

Inspired by the likes of Darkest Dungeon and Slay the Spire, Mech Armada combines elements from multiple genres to create an ever-changing turn-based tactics game, and gives players a heavy dose of deckbuilding, resource management, fast tactical tiled-based combat and perma-death.

Set against a campaign of skirmishes to defeat the Swarm, you’ll need to customize your mech loadouts, utilise terrain, and play to your strengths in procedurally generated encounters that continually increase in difficulty.

“There is an opportunity to combine the depth of tactics games with the replayability of deckbuilding roguelikes to create a new experience that players can enjoy over and over,” says Lioncode founder, Sergio Garces.

Now available Steam via Early Access for $14.99, Mech Armada’s story sees you take on the Swarm, a strange race hellbent on destroying the world. It’s down to the player to utilise “replicator technology” – a way to quickly bring powerful mechs to life – to destroy the creatures and save humanity.

Mech Armada can be wishlisted now, and for more information head to the official website.
