Those Awesome Guys have announced Floppy Knights, a turn-based strategy deckbuilding game by Rose City Games.
Players build decks that represent actions, which they then use to move and attack with their units in turn-based tactical battles. Help the brilliant inventor Phoebe on her quest to get rich, and save the world.

About Floppy Knights
Hey there, humans. It’s me, Carlton! Phoebe’s most trusted friend… and coolest arm, if I do say so myself.
Now, who’s Phoebe, you ask? She’s a talented inventor and programmer with a taste for the finer things in life and prefers to work smarter, not harder. Her mission: save up enough cash to finally move outta her parents’ place.
That’s where I come in! Phoebe created me, her bionic arm and best friend, to help her achieve her goals. Not only am I brilliant, handsome, and funny, but I’ve also got a neat trick up my sleeve – I can take regular old floppy disks and turn them into these handy-dandy projections we call “Floppy Knights!” They’re super useful for just about any task… especially when it’s time to throw down on the battlefield.
With the help of our new buddies, the occasional odd job has turned into a steady side hustle… but things are getting a bit more intense than we bargained for! Bigger and badder monsters keep popping up and now Phoebe’s not so sure about this whole “hero” role… but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s chat about all the sweet stuff you’ll get to do in the game!
- Turn-Based Tactics meets Deck-Building
A fresh take on two familiar genres! Mix and match your favorite cards to craft your deck with care. Once you’re ready, lead your Knights to victory across a turn-based battlefield.
- Vibrant world filled with retro tech and magic!
Enter a fantastical land where cassette tapes and alchemy co-exist. Knights and enemies spring into action in hand-drawn visuals by Marlowe Dobbe (Dicey Dungeons).
- Achieve Squad Goals
Get ready for gutsy goblins, sassy succulents, and more! A colorful and diverse assortment of Floppy Knights will be at your fingertips, ready to boot up into combat.
- Easy to pick up, hard to put down
We took the best elements from deck-building and tactics games, condensing them down into a quick-to-learn, simple-to-understand format.
Floppy Knights launches 2020 for Windows PC, and Mac (both via Steam).
