Niche Spotlight – War Mongrels

War Mongrels

Today’s Niche Spotlight is War Mongrels, an isometric real-time tactics stealth-action game set during WWII by Destructive Creations.

War Mongrels tells the story of two German deserters on the eastern front, that end up joining a Polish resistance group launching daring raids to disrupt the Nazi war effort. Control a squad of resistance fighters, each with their own unique skills and abilities, as you sabotage German machinery, steal supplies, and assassinate officers.

Use stealth to silently take out or avoid guards, use the right characters’ skills to handle any given situation, and exploit environmental hazards to cause havoc and distract the enemy. If you get spotted, you’ll also have a chance to fight your way out of a tough situation.

You can find the launch trailer- and prior trailers tied to it- below.

War Mongrels is available on Windows PC via Steam for $44.99 USD.

Do you enjoy a good mix of tactical elements, adventure, and stealth, all tightly packed into a dark, fascinating story? We felt it was a rhetorical question, so that’s the experience we’ve crafted ;)

Try different tactics in each mission. Distract the enemies or drop parts of destroyed buildings on their heads. The interactive environment opens up many tactical options for you to explore.

Have you been spotted? Draw your weapon and try to shoot your way out!

Join forces with a friend and build your team of mongrels as you play! Each character has their own personality, background, and skills to use during the journey.
