The good people of Facepunch Studios are about to let their cutesy robotic turn-based tactics gameout into the world. Some robots breathe fire, others bombard from afar, and when all else fails, there’s nothing a well-timed rocket can’t fix. It’s all about putting together a cohesive squad.
The most alluring part is briefly shown in the video. Along with the usual multiplayer skirmishes against other humans that’ll have me rethinking my not-so-brilliant strategies, Clatter has a single-player career with management aspects. You’ll be tasked with assembling killer robo teams in a seasonal league format. As the Steam summary puts it, “Build your team from the ground up: buy and sell units, hack their stats, and grab sponsorships as you strive to take your team from chumps to champs.”
Clatter reminds me thatcame out this year and I never mopped up all of the individual squad challenges. If you’re in the mood for excellent tactical gaming right this minute, don’t miss it.
Facepunch hasn’t shared a precise launch date, but Clatter will be out on Steam in December.
