= BACKSTORY =
The Templar Knights are a revered and storied martial order who were the elite forces for the Star Traders during their most challenging conflict: the Galactic War against the Guild.

They are known for their 10-foot tall battle mechs known as Leviathan Battle Suits. Once designed for high-pressure environments and exploring gas giants and deep space, these mechs have now been modified for war.

Templars descend from a Zendu bloodline -- a unique heritage that gives them the ability (with proper training and ritual) to pass all of memories from their lives (and any memories passed down by their ancestors) to a newborn child. This memory gift is known as a Templars Lineage and it is what gives Templars their immense advantage in combat, tactics, engineering, and the ability to drive hulking Leviathan Battle Suits. You will take on the role of a Templar Captain who hails from a storied Lineage reaching back 87 Templars -- and who pages back through the memories to help cope with the dire situation at hand.

With the Great Exodus coming to an end, the Star Traders founded new colonies on the few remaining habitable worlds. The Templar Knights are called upon once again to defend the Star Traders and their new colonies from an ancient threat.

Whoah... is this real? Some of the hardest working devs in the business, checking it out now.

Edit: Looks fantastic... there's something about every Trese Brothers game that seems to quietly whisper "this here, my friend, is a real game" right in my ear, mesmerising me while I subconsciously hit the buy button.

I've only played a little bit atm, but the game scores 9/10 average on steam. Must be a game for people who are disappointed in x-mercs

So is this just a mission based game? Any random missions, enemy layout, etc...?

There are 45+ missions in the game, with scenario branches included. Many of the missions include random elements, especially including enemy spawning and attack vectors.

Once you have at least one saved game on your device, a little option "Skip Initial Deployment" will appear in the new game screen. Check that box, and it skips your new squad over the tutorial.

I seriouly don't like the game art at all. On the fence with this, to buy or not to buy
