Hartacon is an online RPG game developed with XNA that allows players to challenge each other in online battles. Battles take place in 2D isometric maps with 4-angles view and zoom. A player can create one or more parties of characters of different classes, each with peculiar stats, skills and weapons. By winning battles, parties gain Upgrade Points (UPs), used to recruit new characters and buy equipments, while individual characters gain Growth Points (GPs), used to learn new skills and increase stats. The battle system is tactical, turn-based, and features traditional RPG elements such as elements and altered states. Players can play against each other or team up in alliances.

May 2014 PC demo of Hartacon Tactics is now available for download right here on indiedb.
You may have missed past news, so this is what you need to know about the game.


Hartacon Tactics is a turn-based strategy RPG. The game features a single-player campaign, and several multiplayer modes to challenge your friends around the world, with the possibility to fight among up to six players and to form alliances.The characters roster includes eight classes, each able to equip two types of weapons. All weapons of a given type, for example swords, bows, axes, have their own attack pattern, and grant the use of a specific line of skills: ranging from pure magic spells, to creation of barriers, modification of the maps, throwing allies and enemies, damaging their equipment, and more, making each class unique and strategically different.Hartacon Tactics is not a game of chance, classic strategic RPG elements such as formations, direction of attack, heights, elemental damage, altered states, all work in a deterministic way and have a fundamental role in determining the outcome of your moves, and eventually which player will emerge victorious.Experience earned on the battlefield gives you upgrade points to spend for developing characters, acquiring new skills and increasing their stats. With received gold you can buy better weapons, protections and accessories.Single-character and team-based turns give you a great variety of gameplay, plus, Hartacon Tactics has a complete in-game map editor, where players will be able to build custom maps for their battles.Hartacon Tactics is developed with XNA 4 and will be released for PC, and for XBOX 360 in the indie games section of XBOX Live.
