Fall Damage has recently announced that its turn-based action strategy game BATALJ is currently in development on PC, with a closed beta available now for those who sign up on the game’s website. The game allows players to versus others in 1v1 battles where the best plans will win on the battlefield.
BATALJ is a fierce online turn-based action strategy game on PC where you face other players in one vs one battles with your own custom-built squad. Skill and smart plays decides who comes out victorious. With several unique mechanics and an action packed art style, BATALJ is a fresh addition to the strategic turn based genre. The title means “Combat” in Swedish, a nod to the Fall Damage founders’ background in AAA First Person Shooters. With three factions, multiple heroes and units you can try out different combinations, discover synergies and explore strategies that fits your playstyle.
“With BATALJ we wanted to take a whole new approach to the genre.” says Markus Nyström, Creative Director at Fall Damage. “We focused on making it as accessible as possible without sacrificing depth. The players will realize that they have endless options to mix and match units in their squad, trying out different lineups will be both exciting and challenging.”.
BATALJ brings new mechanics to the genre. When playing, both the player and their opponent plan their combat actions simultaneously. When the planning phase is complete the players head into the action phase and watch how their strategy plays out, revealing if the player or their opponent is the mastermind who outsmarted and outplayed the other.
