Zachtronics have announced Möbius Front ’83, a turn-based tactics game set in an alternate 1983.
Launching November 5th for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (all via Steam); players take command of the US military, after America is attacked by bizarre alternate-reality American troops that came from mysterious voids that have appeared across the country.
As with all Zachtronics titles, Möbius Front ’83 will also include a unique solitaire minigame, puzzles, and US military manuals that inspired the game to read. You can find the reveal trailer below.
You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:
The year is 1983 and the United States of America must defend itself from an enemy it could have never imagined— an America from an alternate universe that will stop at nothing to seize control of the country’s heartland!
In Möbius Front ‘83 you will fight tactical, turn-based battles with the cutting-edge military hardware of the early 1980s. Use every tool available — powerful tanks, fast-moving attack helicopters, long-ranged artillery, tenacious infantry, and more — to control the complex and rapidly-changing battlefield of the era.
Who are the “Americans” attacking America, and why? Find out in the game’s extensive single-player campaign and its fully voiced cutscenes. When you’re ready for some R&R, play a new kind of solitaire, solve Zachtronics-style puzzles, and even read the U.S. military manuals that inspired the game.
