Brilliant Furry RTS Tooth and Tail Launches September 12 for PC, PS4

Independent developer Pocketwatch Games has announced the release date for Tooth and Tail, their promising real-time strategy game filled with furries.

The ambitious and yet pick-up-and-play RTS game will launch for PC (via Steam and GOG) and PlayStation 4 on September 12th. Featured above, you can view a new cinematic trailer for the game, which shows off a bit of the game’s story campaign.

The game is described as “real-time strategy distilled,” and it includes four playable factions: the Longcoats, the Commonfolk, the KSR, and the Civilized. Each faction has their own unique campaign filled with unique settings, rules, and strategies. It’s worth mentioning the maps are procedurally generated.

There’s also a multiplayer mode, with an arena-based match system. The game’s multiplayer was tested over a three-year long private alpha, which has created an existing fan-run tournament scene dubbed the “Clash of Comrades.” You can also play locally via two player, split-screen couch co-op – or online in 2v2.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Pocketwatch:

Lead the revolution with an army of flamethrowing Boars, mustard gas-lobbing Skunks, and paratrooper-puking Owls. 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!

Key features:

  • 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, controls designed specifically for the gamepad, and split-screen couch play, Tooth and Tail is a popcorn RTS for veterans and newcomers alike.

You can find Tooth and Tail here on Steam, here on GOG, and here on PlayStation. If you pre-order the game and you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you’ll get an extra 10% off its price. Pre-orders are going live on July 18th.

    I never thought I would read the words “furry” and “RTS” in the same sentence. That being said the premise of the game does look intriguing – animals representing different political systems fighting over resources.

    Someone’s sounding like a dirty Furshit sympathizer.

  • I’ve returned referred to furries as heathens in multiple previous articles about furry games lolol.

    I’ve played the game before and the mechanics are pretty solid. The overall aesthetic and music are also great too

    It might be pretty decent

    Is it Age of Furry Empires or is it Furcraft 2?

  • Bitterbear

    Get used to see more furry games. They have the advantage of not having a defined human skin tone; plus, there are way worser fetishy stuff in furdom that SJW messages are flat-out ignored.

  • OSad

    Not to mention, furry stuff really seems to open up some wallets:

    I don’t personally get what this fetish brings to the table and I probably never will, but it’s pretty undeniable that there’s a market for this kinda kink out there, and a very lucrative one at that, explicit content or not.

  • Bitterbear

    The power of autism in furrydom is distilled into two overly concentrated groups: Art and/or S.T.E.M. graduates, and it creates a symbiotic relationship between these two groups. Hence you can see how someone can charge and sell a drawing of an overly muscular anthropomorphic creature for $200 on a regular basis.

    There’s lotsa nerd furries in Silicon Valley and in hospitals with the cash to pay you if you can make their junk hum like a bumblebee.

    meh not impressed

    Back in the day we would have just said “The RTS which looks to be inspired by Redwall…”

    That’s because these people either don’t have children or the children they do have (hopefully) get taken away from them by the state.
