    Hi there!

    I’m Sergio from Camel101 and I want to share with you Black Talons. I hope you like! We are very proud to announce our game.



    A new real time tactics game set in a sci-fi universe, featuring a mercenary commander trying to prevail in a ravaged star system. Black Talons is a new incursion on the universe we discovered on Gemini Wars. The game is still in development for Windows, Mac and Linux systems, and more details about the release date will be provided soon.


    • Persistent and customizable squads.
    • Deep campaign mode. The actions of the player directly affect the balance of power on the system. There is one main objective to achieve, but there's much more to do.
    • Customizable Battlecruiser. The Battlecruiser serves as the base of operations, and can be customized with weapons or infrastructures that will boost the squad numbers, teleport soldiers or even bombard the battlefield.
    • Faction relations. There are a number of neutral minor factions in the game. These factions will have missions available for contract work. When the player completes missions for a certain faction, the relations will improve with that faction. On the other hand, completing missions against a faction will lower the relations with it. Having good relations allows the player to train or buy units unique to that faction. Having bad relations will make that faction randomly attack the player during missions.
    • Upgradeable and unique (per class) skill tree for all units.
    • 5 worlds with different environments and weather conditions that directly affect the battle: rain, fog, snow, ionstorms and more insane stuff.
    • Different unit classes with specialized roles: Recon, Tactical, Assault, Support, Engineer. Each class can carry a different set of weapons and has its own abilities. Powerful mechs can enter the battlefield with salvaged or bought equipment and weapons.

    Here we have the a few images of the gameplay which is work in progress.




    • This is our FIRST TEASER showing a quick glance of the mercs fighting in different environments. Enjoy it!

    Not another advertiser, and I am NOT interested in anything kickstarter.

    Kickstarter posts should be FORBIDDEN here - I am tired of hearing about the latest and greatest stuff that does NOT exist.

    Let us know again when it is RELEASED and AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE, please.

    Speak for yourself. I like to hear of new games that can't be published the traditional way, and support the best ones, because quite frankly, they are usually more interesting.

    If you aren't interested, don't click the link. (Edit: Perhaps that it should be a rule that kickstarters have "Kickstarter" in the title, so you can avoid them. But I don't agree with banning them entirely.)

    OP: Looks interesting, especially the decisions bit. Will it feature a branching campaign?

    I'm a bit kickstartered out at the moment, but I'll keep an eye on it.
