    In a more strategy based gameplay note, Quinterra has an Early Access release on Steam. Fight your way across random, floating sky island map. Be things that aren't really humans. Save 15% through April 14th. Enjoy a trailer:

    • Build YOUR army: Choose Elites, Minions, Equipment, and Crystals you wish to bring into battle. Plan accordingly or you may fail your expedition from losing too much morale!
    • 4 Playable Species: Choose from the headstrong Lycans, the tricksy Imps, the durable Crystalians, or the knowledgeable Ethereals.
    • Procedurally Generated: Random rewards, procedurally generated maps, and random enemies create a varied and dynamic experience through each expedition and each combat encounter.

    Ah, morale mechanics. There's something that can make for an interesting game or a really bad game if you're not good at it.

    I think I'll pay them random price. As all this procedural cancer deserves.

    The concept art and the portraits look alright, but the actual board you fight on looks like shit. The unit tokens are way too big compared to the hexes, so it becomes very visually messy.
    Together with random generation this is a hard pass even for Steam dumpster divers like me.

    It doesn't look half bad, but I have to put it in context of all the other games that have been put in the news feed...

    From the looks of it I'd rather replay Fantasy General or Battle Isle.
