Telepath Tactics Status Update, New Demo, New Video
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Sinister Design has posted a new blog article about development on Telepath Tactics, revealing information about a variety of new features as well as an updated demo and a new video. Set in the world of the Telepath RPG universe, the turn-based multiplayer tactics game will feature support for up to six players in hotseat mode, a new art style, redesigned UI, and a new combat engine.

Here are a handful of updates listed in the post:

Telepath Tactics now supports branching, scripted dialog: which means the game now also supports branching campaigns.

By far the biggest undertaking this past month has been improving enemy AI in Telepath Tactics. There are already a number of noticeable upgrades–among them:

  • AI characters now grab item sacks lying within reach, then continue their turns;
  • AI characters now intelligently use items sitting in their inventory;
  • AI characters with non-turn-ending attacks now continue moving after attacking; and
  • badly injured AI characters now flee in the direction of a friendly healer if they can reach one.
I’ve implemented Rally, a feature that simultaneously auto-moves all of your characters toward a point on the battlefield that you specify. (This massively speeds up turns where you’re too far away to engage with any enemy units!)
