Cyber Knights: A Cyberpunk RPG Kickstarter

03 February 2020 - 03:23 PM

The Trese Brothers, makers of Star Trader: Frontiers (a really good game by the way ;) ), have just launched a new kickstarter, Cyber Knights: Flashpoint, "a turn-based squad tactics RPG for PC (Windows, Mac, Linux) and mobile (Android, iOS)."


From the Kickstarter page:

Explore the dystopian cyberpunk future of 2231 as you command a company of shadow mercenaries working for the highest bidder. Cyber Knights wraps a world full of consequential story choices and significant character development around a rich core of classic and new mechanics. The game combines tactical elements like stealth, hacking and tense combat with strategic features like base building, contact management and in-depth squad customization. Cyber Knights invites you to jack in and explore a unique cyberpunk world and the immersive, human stories of your merc team in the dark future of 2231.


Basically it looks like an XCOM squad based game, same turn based, 3rd person perspective, mixed with cyberpunk/shadowrun flavor and RPG elements.

This will be the first game by The Trese Brothers that is using 3d models instead of 2d sprites, hopefully they do a good job with it. But the concept is cool the screenshots and video look good, I just backed it. If you are interested or want more details, here is the link to the kickstarter: https://www.kickstar...hts/description

They are having a special thing where if you back in the next 48 hours you get a little something extra, an expanded early game storyline "Horizon Cypher"
