Chroma Squad lets you manage a Japanese superhero show


2:30 PM on 07.26.2013



I know a lot of you are super spentai monetarily after Steam sales, but those still with dollars to give might want to spend some sentime with the Chroma Squad Kickstarter. In Chroma Squad, you're tasked with managing a fresh sentai -- think Power Rangers -- TV series, in which you hire and customize actors, buy studio equipment, choreograph battles, record episodes, and more.

There's some impressive minutia available; you can even send letters to your fans, chat on IRC, and create comic book adaptations of your show. Cross media! In fact, the Chroma Squad development team has released a web comic relating to the game's story. So meta.

Chroma Squad will have a story mode with multiple endings, as well as competitive multiplayer. The team behind it, Behold Studios, has had some past success and shown an ability to deliver on a product. It's responsible for the cute Knights of Pen & Paper 1. Well that helps explain why the pixel art in Chroma Squad is so damn good. I'm down for a humorous, fun, colorful romp through the world of sentai.

[Thanks, Swishiee!]

Sentai studio sim Chroma Squad could be my XCOM replacement

I played a lot of XCOM last year, between running through Enemy Unknown late and Enemy Within. The blend of on the ground, turn-based combat and back home base management simulation hooked me. Chroma Squad is basically that. Except you're directing a Sentai with actors in colorful spandex dancing around lots of explosions and turtle and plant monsters. It's pretty great.more

Giant mecha battle! Japanese Chroma Squad trailer is great

We heard about Chroma Squad last year and it looks great. It's one half Sentai studio management sim, one half tactical, turn-based battler. You buy better actors, special effects, answer fan mail and fight people. I like it...more

Holy carp, look at this fish!

The makers of Train Simulator have released their next project, a fishing sim, on Steam Early Access. It caught my attention for a few reasons, the first being that the game is way cheaper than I was expecting. Here's why: th...more
