Grotesque Tactics is a story driven, satirical RPG with a strategic combat system. A party of 10 anti-heroes are fighting in a grotesque world that combines the features and cliches of Western and Asian Strategy RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics, Heroes of Might & Magic and Fire Emblem.
Grotesque Tactics weaves a humorous storyline and plenty of amusing dialogue, poking fun at some of the most successful RPGs, such as Oblivion, Gothic and Lord of the Rings.
To protect the kingdom from the merciless cult "The Dark Church" which has murdered all of the kingdom's heroes and knights, you will have to hire dubious soldiers and rescue jealous maidens who will follow you into combat as your groupies.
Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons and Donuts
Our story starts as the citizens of the Kingdom of Glory celebrate their victory over the Dark Church. While in the catacombs of their former enemies, their revelry is disturbed by a sudden all-encompassing fog. The citizens wrapped by the fog disappear screaming into nothing. Those that remain alive after the strange attack, barricade themselves in the depths of the catacombs. As time passes, food becomes scarce and the people of the Kingdom of Glory begin to realize that they might all meet their demise. The 'heroic' Knights of Glory, shady mercenaries and the arrogant high elves band together into guilds in order to survive and escape the dank catacombs. Unfortunately, the guilds are far too concerned with their distaste for each other and are oblivious to the awakening of dark forces in the dungeons below...
Holy Avatar vs Maidens of the Dead
To get a bit of relaxation after the last great battle fought in Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts, Holy Avatar decides to grab a little R&R with his Guild of Maidens on a Caribbean island he recently purchased and renamed; "Holy Island".
Upon arrival on the beach, they make a gruesome discovery; numerous dead maidens, horribly mutilated, are scattered all over the path to the center of the island. The Guild of Maidens is afraid that something horrible has happened in the maidens' camp on the island. Holy Avatar must investigate what happened on the island and the toll this disaster has already taken. New adventures, new hazards and, did we mention the zombies... await our hero and his companions inside the dense woods and caves of this once idyllic island.
Silent Dreams has listened and reacted to the community's suggestions and demands with new optics that were redone from scratch, fresh Cel-Shading graphics and an overly colorful and clean look.
As part of this new approach, Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead is introducing a fixed camera, which will provide you with a clear overview of the events in the game. Zooming in and out is still possible, as well as the ability to move the camera over the whole map. From the technical point of view, the game is in line with the endemic Caribbean flair as the HUD is provided with a tropical design, as well as the character portraits got a general overhaul and the entire game is wrapped in the steel drum-marked Caribbean soundtrack, carrying the comforting Southern Sea feeling throughout.
