Described as “Real Time Strategy Distilled”, Tooth and Tail looks like a cool and fresh take on an old and ofttimes stale gaming genre. Crafted by Pocketwatch Games, a company you might remember from their previous game, the awesome co-op heist romp Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine. My friends and I logged many, many hours creeping around and robbing stuff in Monaco. I expect Tooth and Tail will likewise provide no lack for gaming goodness.
Here is the actual product description for those of you not already familiar with the upcoming title:
Lead the revolution with an army of flamethrowing Boars, mustard gas-lobbing Skunks, and paratrooper-puking Owls. From the designers of Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine, Tooth and Tail is a Real-Time-Strategy game featuring Single Player, Online Competitive Play, Split Screen, Replays, and more.
Build a base, lead your army, eat your enemies!
- The War for Meat — The Longcoats, the Commonfolk, the KSR, and the Civilized are in the midst of a Civil War over who gets to eat, and who has to be the meat. A darkly humorous tale of riots and revolution is told through an extensive Single Player campaign.
- Endless Replayability — With procedurally generated maps and customizable factions, no two conflicts will be the same, forcing players to strategize rather than memorize.
- Pick-up-and-Play — With matches lasting from 5-12 minutes, split-screen couch play, and controls designed for controllers or keyboard/mouse, Tooth and Tail is a popcorn RTS for veterans and newcomers alike.
Set to release September 12 on Steam, PS4, and GOG, Tooth and Tail looks like a game I personally will enjoy. I’m especially enamored with the idea of 5-12 minute matches. That, in my estimation, is a great way to boost accessibility and for me at least, will be certain to hold my attention. Check out the trailer and see if it also sparks an interest for you.
