Hope You've Got Room For More Turn-Based Strategy, PC Gamers

Halfway is a turn-based strategy game set on a huge starship crawling with zombies. Think XCOM, with a dash of Dead Space, only with gorgeous 16-bit-inspired visuals.

I grabbed it earlier today and can't stop playing. Unlike a more traditional turn-based game, this isn't just a straight tactical exercise; in between combat engagements you and your crew can explore the ship RPG-style, scrounging for supplies and better gear.

Below is a little let's play vid by Gamasutra's Mike Rose that walks you through the basics.

You can get Halfway from Steam for $US13.

    hell yeah, looks great - kind of like a cross between warhammer quest and Dungeon of the Endless

      +1 Dungeon of the Endless is fucking awesome

      Yeah, it's not bad, though it's definitely a lot more punishingly roguelike.

    Well shit, son, you might as well ask if we've got more room in our beds for supermodels.

    Tried to buy it. Steam says nope, since I live in Japan I can't use my Australian Steam account anymore. PC gaming is dead to me :(

      Can't you mail them and try and get it resolved? Hope you can get it sorted and continue to experience PC gaming joy.

      I used to live in Japan. You have to buy from the Steam website and end the URL with CC=au.

      That should do it. If not, I also emailed Steam support and told them I'd be buying from a Japanese IP. Whatever magic they may or may not have done on that end opened it up for me.
      Where you living btw?
