Timbertales is a fantasy turn based hex strategy game. I wanted to create a game, which has the feeling of classical games like Battle Isle or Battle of Wesnoth, but with a very unique nature theme and challenging content. In Timbertales you will first have to draft an army before you can start a match. Unlike other turn based strategy games: You will not have to produce units in game. Its a more based on a table top strategy game approach, where you have to build up an army with a specific point limit before the match starts.

In game we have a classic hex tiled map in an isometric view. You will have to move your units around the map and clear out different map objectives to be victorious. Every attack is handled instantly: You will see the results as fast as possible and you are able to plan your next steps immediately.

Many units provide very special abilities: You have the choice for just normal attacking or using very special abilities, like healing, cursing or heavy attacks.

There will be very unique game modes for solo playing and multiplayer. Let me introduce the features more detailed:

Features

There are different races: Vermin and sylvans. Each race consists of multiple units, which are very unique in look and feel. Some units will also provide some special skills and behaviours.

There are heal spheres which can heal your units, critical strike spheres which increases the critical strike chance for several rounds and acorn point sphere which increases your acorn points. Acorn points are the in game currency to unlock features.

Ranking


Several rankings will show your progress through different game modes. There will be lists for arena, challenge and ranked mode.

Maps


In challenge and multiplayer mode there will be special maps to play on. These maps provide special optional map objectives. If those objectives are completed different events can happen and will grant you an advantage.

Combat


The combat system is based on the system which is used in "Starcraft". This means we have different unit types and different attack types. The unit types are small, medium and large. The attack types are normal, piercing and breaking. If two types clashes each other the types are used to calculate the critical hit chance for the unit for example if a normal attack type is fighting against any armor type he will always have the standard 10% critical strike hit chance. But if an piercing attack type is fighting vs. a small armor type he will receive a 100% bonus which means he has a critical hit chance of 20%. Critical hits will be displayed with a bigger yellow number while normal hits are shown in white color.

Hey,

I decided to make a giveaway here on IndieDB on the 5th of Feb for Timbertales. It was a bit quite around Timbertales the past time. I focused on other games and had a lot to do in marketing and promotion, but I am back to business on Timbertales. I will focus the next weeks on some improvements like the integration of achievements in steam, improving the sounds in game and making some minor tweaks.

I would appreciate to get some Feedback and ideas with this giveaway for Timbertals. So we can take the next step in the direction of full release.

Cheers,

Thorben
