The main highlights of Hooded Horse in the TactiCon 2023 are the sci-fi tactical deck-building game Breachway, the turn-based strategy game Mars Tactics, and RTS/4X/Survival mash-up Fragile Existence. This event is important for Breachway because the title is debuting its demo for the first time which will allow players to experience the game’s tactical combat, where the ship’s loadout determines what cards make up the deck. The developer Edgeflow is also excited to show off the recent additions to the game which include equipment targeting. These additions will add further layers to tactical decisions.

The new demo offers two ships and loadout options and if you are interested in trying it out, you can download it from the game’s Steam page right now. Takibi Games, the developer of Mars Tactics, has been working hard to improve the game and is also taking part in the event to showcase a range of new features. You will witness dropships, air strikes, armored dogs, new biomes, and the full power of the game’s tactical and strategic sandbox in the new trailer released for the event.
