Independent developer Nodbrim Interactive has announced that its medieval steampunk tactical turn-based RPG Acaratus is out now on Steam. A deep tactical combat system with customizable battle suits a.k.a. mecha units, elaborate item and unit customization, PvP battles and a rich narrative story, blend nicely into a beautiful medieval steampunk setting to create a unique feel for this challenging turn-based strategy title.
“Acaratus has been significantly updated since the first Early Access build as we tweaked the battle system, created a three-act deep narrative story for the campaign mode and balanced the whole game, including the multiplayer mode to help new players kick off the game easier”, said Martin Kupski, Creative Director at Nodbrim Interactive. “We’ve also added a lot more customizable content from an array of weapons to multiple types of booster cards, so there’s enough variety to execute even the most intricate strategies.”
Acaratus has multiplayer and single player modes, both brimming with high-strategy challenges, which encourage players to plan their battle tactics in advance. Players can construct their own Steampunk inspired mecha units from highly customizable modular attachments and decide between ranged, melee, boosters and defensive parts. Weapons range from war hammers to longer ranged projectile-based weapons, such as cannons. Ability card decks can also be used by players as attack, defence or skill boosts to support their unique play styles and help them succeed in the deep tactical turn-based gameplay. Combat takes place in a mesmerising medieval Steampunk setting with randomised maps, or players can challenge each other in battle arenas. Acaratus is now available on Steam for $14.99/£10.99/€13.99.

Acaratus is a tactical turn-based RPG set in a medieval steampunk world where players build their own mecha units (aka battle suits). They can customize these units to fit their play style by adding attachments and building a deck of ability cards and then explore the vast randomized world map and fight it out on grid-based battles. Essentially the game presents a mashup heavily inspired by games like Heroes of Might and Magic and Hearthstone.
