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!
- 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.
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.
