Wargroove

Starbound creators Chucklefish have decided to tackle a new genre this time, the turn-based strategy one and they turned their eyes to a classic Japanese strategy series for where to start. Wargroove takes heavy inspiration from Intelligent Systems Wars series (known in many cases in the west as Advance Wars) to create an interesting turn-based strategy game.

Here’s a description from the developers:

Wargroove is a turn-based strategy game for up to 4 players, in which each player takes control of an army and its commander unit to wage war on their enemies! Wargroove is extremely easy to pick up, with accessibility at the forefront of its design, and very difficult to master, with deep gameplay mechanics that complement strategic play.

History
Wargroove is a modern take on the simple yet deep turn-based tactical gameplay popularised in the 2000s by handheld games such as Advance Wars. As big fans of those games we were disappointed to find that nothing in this genre was available on current generation platforms and set out to fill the gap ourselves. Wargroove aims to recreate the charm and accessibility of the titles that inspired it whilst bringing modern technology into the formula. This modern focus allows for higher resolution pixel art, robust online play and deep modding capability, ultimately creating the most complete experience for Advance Wars and TBS fans.

Each commander has a lengthy campaign of their own, exploring their motivations and personality
