Steam is the delivery method of choice and there will also be a DRM-free version released through the Harebrained Account Website, but it won’t have access to community-created content that will be shared via Steam. Steam pre-orders open on 29th April. Pre-order discounts and the Collector’s Edition will cease being available on the Harebrained website the day before.

The game promises to be a graphically rich 2D turn-based single player game with deep story interaction, meaningful character development, and highly-contextual tactical combat.
