I also want to post some Indie strategy games, but I am not interested in reading the whole thread. How about a list that is regularly updated? That would make things easier all the more when this thread getting very big.

I didn´t add the games with dead link and not every game on the list has a link and not every link is a game in the list.
Also I am not sure if the categories are correct(Actualy I didn´t care while adding), so if someone has a desire
to "improve" the list he or she is welcome to do so. After all I am not the owner^^!

Should I use this list for games that are well discussed in other forums like Battle Brothers / Starsector or start a new sticky?

Wizards and Warlords, indie turn-based strategy game. To be honest, I didn't "find" this, since I am the one developing it. It's also not done yet, but there is a playable alpha, and it has a lot functional moving parts. It has really stupid AI, lots of placeholder art and the main challenge is navigating the UI. But I am adding stuff constantly and the updates are pretty much weekly at this point, and dead periods of development less common. Sometimes a build will be horribly buggy and crash a lot, since I like programming a lot more than testing, but stability is a lot better than it used to be. The tactical combat looks terrible and will be completely overhauled before beta. Until then you can auto-resolve battles or enjoy cheesy sound effects for the spells, opaque mechanics and unfair fights. The strategic part is where the main focus is for the coming months.

Poll: Battle Pack DLC
Battle Pack DLC announced for Q3 (when the major updates and improvements of the game are finished). This should include 6 historical battles and an option to play custom made battles.

What historical battles would you like to see? (A fix starter for me would be the Battle of the Abrahams Plains).

http://digitalgameworks.com/index.php/desperate-glory/
Desperate Glory is an abstracted company level tactical combat game covering the Battle of the Little Bighorn, pitting General Custer's divided 7th Cavalry against the largest gathering of Sioux-Cheyenne Warriors in history. Each map 'hex' represents about 20 yards and each turn represents about 5 minutes of time.

There is demo. Haven't tried it yet.

I also going to try demos for The Drift 1879 and The Alamo -Victory or Death.

Tactics elemental
http://www.tacticselemental.com/

Here is some words from the maker
Inspired by games like “Final Fantasy Tactics”, “Tactics Ogre” and “Fire Emblem” have always been my favorite RPGS, and from their inspiration, I began developing my own project, “Tactics Elemental”. A game rooted in tactical RPG fundamentals but taken to a place I’ve really never seen them taken before.

When you take your company of adventurers through the main story and on side quest adventures, some characters will grow closer together romantically. Forming a loving bond in this time of strife. As the bonds grow, erotic side stories called “Interludes” will become available. When an interlude concludes, the pair will enhance a special magical enchantment that gives both a tactical advantage in the battles to come. These interludes flesh out the character’s relationships. Reveal more about the world of Nowhere and are pretty durn hot.

There will be at least 224 available interludes to discover during your quest illustrated with over 500 sexy hi-resolution scenes.

So turnbased tactics + porn. How could it go wrong?

I'm currently replaying Myth with Project magma 1.8.1 (all the issues that Ivar has in his LP are fix, even the sprite are HD!), and nothing is suppressing this game. This is the only game in which I listening 2x to the briefing, just because its that good - all the Black Company vibe.

The difficulty curve is pure perfection. You can go for "no casualties" approach or "Carry on, we gonna make it!". And both are perfectly viable. I do few days ago Gonnen Bridge mission, all my archer and dwarf was blow out with Wight, I finish the mission with warriors and 1x journeyman. I just randomly replay some missions just to enjoy it again. This game has succulent ambient (not because the gore only). All units are greatly balanced. Seriously I dont get why everyone on internet perceive warriors as expendables. And dwarf are not that OP as everyone describe them, in fact is the most frustrating that many times do most of the casualties or force me to reload (yet, dwarf are likeable "sorry for that fellas" :) ). Its not legendary - its a myth! Its a one of a kind.

Either I miss something or there is nothing similar like that (you hear that indie devs? its a niche), there is DeadHold somewhere there on hazy horizon, but would it hold the candle? I'm afraid with choice they make, it has no chance.

royal warfare 2 has better UI, but fuck up eco

royal warfare 1 is in general better for my taste, thou UI is worse

what about Sarah is Missing?
there's multiple choices, that influence the end.
Also it received a few awards.
I know this is more like horror game, but it still takes a lot of strategy, to get the endings.
