Independent developer Bad Seed announced that their free-to-play multiplayer post-apocalyptic strategy game Insidia will be launching on Steam Early Access on the 7th of September.
Insidia is a highly tactical game, where players control a band of four customizable champions in turn-based online 1v1 battles. Players can diversify their chosen team from a colorful roster of wild characters, each with their own unique abilities and combat skills including fierce punks, mutated wizards and steampunk knights. PvP matches are limited to quick-fire 15 minute sessions where deft decision making is essential for victory.
Insidia allows for some devious strategy and cunning tactics in online PvP. The quick game sessions mean that players need to think fast and commit to their tactical decisions. We are really excited that Insidia will be at Gamescom in Cologne this year, giving visitors an opportunity to try the game out for themselves before the Open Beta.
Carefully thought-out moves and a well-chosen team with the right abilities is essential to become victorious. Different strategies must be brought into play during Tactical Mode, where opponents plan their strategies simultaneously in a timed match, and Resolution Mode, where they execute strategies one after another reacting to the opponent's moves.
Insidia will ultimately provide players with 12 different champions to choose from and aims to launch with 36 different skins. The game will launch with an initial six champions for the Early Access launch - a further two champions will be unlocked during the first phase of release.
Bad Seed will take Insidia to Gamescom 2017. Gamescom visitors will have a chance to battle test the intense turn-based matches ahead of its Early Access launch in Exhibition Hall 10 at the Koelnmesse from Wednesday 23rd August through Saturday 26th August.
