    Just saw the official release date announcement for this today and can't wait to get my hands on it! Love Eldiran's work and this is supposed to be his biggest one yet. Hope it gets the love it's surely going to deserve.

    Day one purchase for me, of course.

    Strikingly similar sailing mechanics to Uncharted Waters: New Horizons. Shame it's Steam only, would love for my old man to play this one. Lost count of the number of times he played it when I was a kid.

    Would certainly make him happy to see someone follow the footsteps of one of his favorite games.

    Considering the past two games are DRM-free on itch.io, I expect this will also be the same.

    I'm hype, I can't think of a dev I trust more than Rad to make a tightly made game.

    Isn't this game a proper rpg? Why is this in the weaboo forum when a commie-friendly VN got there?
    The game looks good either way.

    I thought about mentioning it, but I actually feel like it could get more recognition and attention in the JRPG forum. It's hard to say.

    So this looks very promising. One of the shortcomings of Uncharted Waters was sailing up remote rivers to find villages and then the whole jungle exploration process was abstracted away as a deal with locals. Here it looks like you do the exploring and treasure hunting yourself, big plus.

    I'd like to hear more about the trading and piracy parts, and how much of a living world there is to play sandbox in.

    I think almost all of us who played it thought it was great and an extremely impressive first showing for Rad Codex. Great exploration, fun character building and progression, nice itemization, tight gameplay, great UI, interesting setting. Absolutely worth any RPG lover's time.

    I played Alvora Tactics and it was a good game. I think the dev should post an update on Steam for both it's games to let fans know that the new game will be released next month. If I wouldn't have seen this thread, I wouldn't know it would be released so soon.

    The only drawback I can think of is that the graphics are... Basic. Gameplay is top-notch, although I still have to finish either game.

    This guy makes great games, but he absolutely sucks at PR. Going by the trailer, we'll be getting some proper - fleet-based tactical - ship-to-ship combat, but I can't even link a screenshot of it because there isn't one.

    The dev is a big fan of UW.

    And lucky for you, it's going to be on itch.io too:


    You can read this post while waiting for Eldiran to poke into the thread, it explains some game mechanics:
    https://rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/voidspire-tactics.104631/page-14#post-6226142
    (the last two pages of that thread are about Boat Tactics Horizon's Gate)
    You can find it on his twitter (together with some more dev log gifs), but you're right it should be in promo materials:

    I was getting that tactics game itch again and this got announced just in time. I really wish more people knew about this series.

    Thanks for posting this thread!

    The Red Knight no worries, it's 32-bit. But I am really coming close to hitting the memory limit of 32-bit applications with this game.

    V_K You're not wrong. I'll add more screenshots soon.

    It's heavily inspired by UW, though with more focus on the RPG aspect.

    Feel free to shoot me any questions.
