One of my favorite upcoming indie games right now is Chroma Squad: Sentai Tactical Manager, coming to Steam later this year. All you need to know is that it features strategy RPG combat with sentai (Japanese hero squad) teams, and that it all takes place in a TV studio. Weird, right? Definitely, but I'm in love with it.
If you want to know why I'm so into it, watch this developer walkthrough video. I'll admit to playing this exact demo at GDC last month, but never got around to talking about it. But now you can just watch and see (and hear -- the music is great!). The demo also goes onto new stages that I haven't seen, as well as a deeper look into team play and strategy. I'm even more jazzed about this game after seeing the Mecha fights.
