During the second day of the Guerrilla Collective showcase, Raw Fury showed off a brand-new title called Wolfstride. Developed by Ota Imon, this is a unique turn-based title wherein the protagonist, a former yakuza called Dominique Shades, enters the Ultimate Mech Tournament in a bid to win it all. The game draws a lot of its hyper-stylized imagery from classic anime to incredible effect.
Check out the announcement trailer below, along with a synopsis from the developers! You can also take a look at the game's Steam Page.
An exiled ex-Yakuza, a rookie combat pilot, and a grizzled mechanic team up to compete in the Ultimate Mech Tournament. Use skills and weapons to defeat other mechs in turn-based tactical combat. Make your way to the top by managing repairs, upgrading weapons, and learning new moves. Get to know the locals in a world caught between the last gasps of a simpler time and the shimmering metal of a sprawling metropolis. Build relationships, get job offers, and make that money to fight another day.
Battle opponents in a classic turn-based combat system. Use Movement Points to outmaneuver opponents. Spend action points to deliver precision strikes and crushing blows. Hone your piloting abilities to dominate the battlefield.
Keep your mech in top fighting shape and improve its capabilities in the hanger. Get in there and manually fix battle scars between fights. Add and upgrade weapons and skills to match your fighting style. Budget carefully, upgrades cost money you must earn taking odd jobs around town.
Explore Rain city, one of the last remnants of the old world. Decide where to visit and when. Meet the residents, learn their relationships, and build friendships to get job offers. As a former Yakuza, you know all about doing dirty work, like washing cats.
