Battle Brothers is a single-player military strategy/rpg set in a low fantasy setting, developed by indie publisher Overhype Studios. When I read that this was a mercenary game with a character leveling system, I honestly expected something like Final Fantasy Tactics. What I got was something completely different than my expectations, however something that still felt very familiar. It also gave me the tale of No Nose.

Battle Brothers is an incredibly engaging experience, forcing players to make meaningful choices as they manage a mercenary company and try to leave a mark in a detailed fantasy world. It’s not a perfect game, and it could use a better tutorial, but players looking for a deep turn-based tactical RPG will definitely get a lot of enjoyment out of Overhype Studios’ excellent first title.

Battle Brothers is a well-made game from the technical standpoint, but the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired.
