Hey everyone,

 

I'm proud to announce T-Go Co Games' upcoming game Diesel Tactics!

 

It's an asynchronous turn based strategy game (like Hero Academy) that also allows players to build their own custom armies to bring into battle, similar to the table top games Warhammer or War Machine.

 

The world and art style are inspired from World War I and II imagery with a steampunk/dieselpunk vibe to it.  The game will be 3D with 2D background elements.

 

Right now we only have the first concept art pieces to show (though modelling and animation have begun, we just aren't showing anything yet!), but we have new announcements several times per week on our website (and twitter and facebook pages) and if you're interested in following the progress of the game please follow us on any (or all!) of those!

 

We're hoping to launch the game in summer 2014 (we hope!) with the beta being available about a month or so before release.

 

The game will be available on both iPhone and iPad.  It will also be available on Android devices, but I don't think this is the place to bring that up.  You will be able to play against each other though, so you can show those Android gamers what's what!

 

Here's some concept art from some of the units in the game:

And here's a 3D model of one of the units from the game:

We've been hard at work laying the foundation for Diesel Tactics core gameplay as well as creating the menu system for the game including the all important army creation screens!

 

Unfortunately, this means that we haven't had a whole lot of stuff to show off to everyone, since screenshots of code aren't all that exciting.

 

We have had quite a few updates on our website tgocogames.com including my blog ramblings on varied topics like board gaming and Kickstarter campaigns, so keep up to date with us there!

 

We do have some concept art images for our menu screens to show you guys in the Diesel Tactics concept art image gallery as well as a bunch of new images in the main gallery for you to check out!

 

We'll have some gameplay images and videos coming up in the very near future and the updates should be coming fast and furious at that point, so stay tuned!

 

Here's a couple WIP images from our menus!

Hey everyone,
 
It's been a while since we've updated our info on the forums, but that's largely been due to the fact that we're hard at work trying to get a working game up and running!
 
We've got most of the pieces of the puzzle made and we're in the process of putting them together.  Things are going pretty smoothly now, but the dev world is always pretty unpredictable unfortunately, so we're not entirely sure when we'll be ready to have some gameplay videos for you guys.  It shouldn't be too much longer though, and I'll let everyone know as soon as we have something playable!
 
Until then, here are some more images from Diesel Tactics with their working names attached which we'd love to hear your feedback on!

I like the art style, nice work!


It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

Thanks a ton!  I love the aesthetic we have going so far, and I think our mixing of steampunk and dieselpunk has been working well so far!

Hey everyone,

 

I wanted to give you guys an update on how things are progressing with Diesel Tactics, and let you know why we're running a bit behind schedule.

 

We've had some internal issues (which I think is sort of inevitable with any studio, but can be particularly bad with an indie developer) which have caused us to have to redo some work that we thought was done.  The end result is that we're running about two and a half months behind schedule.  We were hoping to be in alpha right now, but it looks like that will happen closer to sometime in September.

 

We should know relatively soon as to what our new milestone dates are (for things like gameplay videos, trailers, alpha, beta, etc) and I'll update everyone here as soon as possible.

 

On a more positive note, our artist Nadia Fernandez has done some awesome work on the logo for Diesel Tactics and I'd like to show it off to you guys in its current form, so here it is!

To see more images of the new logo check out the Diesel Tactics menu sub gallery here!

 

Thanks for understanding guys and I'll update you all again soon!

Hey all,

 

It's been a while since I've given any updates about the status of Diesel Tactics, but I've just posted on my blog explaining where we're at as far as development goes as well as giving a little more information on how the game will play.

 

Check it out here!

 

And since everyone has been so patient, here's a couple new pics of some units from Diesel Tactics showing off the Steampunk skin!

Hey guys,

 

I've posted on my blog a a list of all the units that are going to be available for 'The Republic' nation (working name! suggestions welcome!) in Diesel Tactics along with a quick description of them.  Soon I'll post the unit list for 'The Kaiserreich' nation (also a working name!), so stay tuned for that as well!

 

Check out the Republic units from Diesel Tactics here!

 

Cheers!

The unit list for the Kaiserreich nation (a working name, suggestions more than welcome!) has been posted up on our website!

 

See all soldiers of the Fatherland here!

 

Here's a look at the Kampfpanzer "Spinnentier" or Spider Tank unit available to the Kaiserreich nation!

Hey everyone!

 

It’s been a really long time since I’ve posted in the forums here and that was due to some pretty big setbacks in the development of Diesel Tactics.  

 

We’ve had a few team members leave which really stalled some aspects of the project, but we’ve finally got all the pieces back in place again and are making constant progress on the game!

 

One of our new team members is German Gaussmann who is our animator and I wanted to show off some of his work, so check out these videos of some animation reels of a couple of units form Diesel Tactics!

 

Here’s the Raketenpanzerbüchse unit from the Kaiserreich nation!

 

And here’s the HT-A4 “Big Willie” Heavy Armour from the Usonian nation decked out in blue team colours!

 

Hope you like the way they look.  I think German has done some amazing work on these and it’s looking like Diesel Tactics will be a great looking game!

Looks interesting; I'll have to keep an eye on this.


My website: Brass Watch Games

Come check out Shipyard, my first real game project (Very WIP): Game Website Development Journal

Shipyard is a 2D turn-based strategy with a sci-fi theme, in which you build ships from individual parts rather than being given a selection of predefined models.

Thanks, Nerdboy64! I'll definitely be trying to keep the updates coming regularly now that we're getting closer to finishing the game.

Hey everyone,

 

Here’s a new video of the Rattenfänger Soldaten unit from Diesel Tactics!

 

The Rattenfänger soldiers are named after Gele Rattenfänger, the current Kaiserina of the Kaiserreich Mechanika nation.

 

Rattenfänger means ‘rat catcher’ and the name is very appropriate for this squad, as they have giant mechanical claws replacing one of their hands (which they voluntarily removed!) that they use to grab and crush their enemies.

 

If that wasn’t enough, they also wield one of the Kaiserreich’s newest technologies in the form of a deadly laser pistol, which are as deadly at short range as they are in close combat.

 

In game terms, pistol weapons are can be used competently at short ranges, but they also provide benefits in melee attacks, unlike normal ranged weapons.  Because of this, the Rattenfänger Soldaten are incredibly deadly in close combat.

 

Here’s the Rattenfänger Soldaten in action!

 

 

Let us know what you think!
