Warbands: Bushido - miniatures skirmish-wargame on iOS & Steam.


Our Warbands: Bushido - is no less than a classical turn-based miniatures board game with cards, miniatures, dices and dozens of beautiful terrains to fight on, aiming to bring the true tabletop wargame experience to the PC and mobile devices. Classical crossplatform multiplayer battles boardgamers are used to and beautiful single-player scenarios will be available on Steam, MacOS and iOS.

Game has a isometric, tabletop-style look with miniature-style characters, pre-rendered battlefields and story-mode locations. There are more than 100 various paintable units and heroes planned for release and later additions. Story driven single-player was highly influenced by Final Fantasy Tactics and Valkyria Chronicles, with several different campaigns with its own characters and events. While multiplayer skirmish will let you test your skills in best traditions of tabletop wargame classics like Warmachine or Mordheim with a fast-paced Hearthstone-like gameplay.

Unfortunately too busy at the moment to really participate in a thread, so I'll just watch from the sidelines.
Definitely interested, subscribed.

You write that it's an alpha version. This looks pretty far down the road already for an alpha. Do you have an ETA for beta phase already, or it's too early for that?

Looks fantastic, I was a hardcore fan of RavenMark TBS so I'm hopeful this will be awesome. Will there be beta testing?

Yes, we're in a couple of months from beta. PC and Mac first, then iOS shortly.

100% same graphics. Mobiles even will have their own controls system. Hope we'll release them all at once)

This looks monumentally promising. In the way that games look good regardless of platform or format, and like I might play them for years to come. I've rarely smashed that Kickstarter pledge button with such fervour.

Will online multiplayer be asynchronous? (Please, say 'tis so! )

Nope, not on release, sry. Just good old turn-based hearthstone-style PvP.)
