WANT: Chroma Squad: Sentai Tactical Manager


11:30 AM on 04.18.2014



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.

WANT WANT WANT. So many good games coming!

Crummy: Power Rangers' Saban is going after Chroma Squad

Behold Studios' Chroma Squad is about managing a brand new sentai television series and, being an in-depth parody, it of course draws inspiration from real-life shows, including -- but far from limited to -- Power Rangers. In...more

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

Chroma Squad lets you manage a Japanese superhero show

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 fres...more

Cuuute: A weapon shop game about potatoes

Games about managing weapon shops are still novel enough conceptually and satisfying enough mechanically that they don't need much window dressing to draw me in. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! has a cutesy art style and offb...more

Look at this bushel of happiness on the PoPoLoCrois Farm Story Japanese cover

Okay, I know no one cares that much about farm sims or things like that these days unless they're teeming with in-app purchases. Or PoPoLoCrois, for that matter. But for some reason, I really like both. I also really like the...more

Saving the newly erected Ass from poop water in Cities: Skylines

Paradox is sticking with, "let’s talk about our product on its own merits" tact with its upcoming city-builder from developer Colossal Order, but I am under no such nice-marketing guide (nor do I know tact, as this post will confirm). Cities: Skylines is looking to be what busted ol' SimCity should’ve been.more
