New Australian RPG Imagines A Medieval Vs Sci-Fi World

Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire is a new tactics RPG that I like the look of for two reasons. The first is that it’s got an art style that reminds me of old rotoscoped cartoons like Lord of the Rings and American Pop.

The second is that while it looks like a fantasy RPG, it’s actually got a hint of post-apocalyptic sci-fi to it (kinda like Endless Legend does), as the story is set on a world which was once an outpost for a galactic civilisation, but has long since fallen into a dark age, with knights, swords, the works. That is, until the galactic civilisation shows up again and starts shooting the place up. With space guns.

It’s due out on PC, Mac and Linux next year.
