Made in Japan 3D Wars game! None of that ugly "indie" bullshit, it looks great!

Area 34 wrote:TINY METAL is all about the gameplay. We are experienced Japanese video game developers who have come together to develop TINY METAL. We believe that can make world renowned games again. Our history dates back to the golden era of Japanese video games.

We put Japanese war gaming into the latest graphicial package modern hardware can provide. TINY METAL features 13 unique units and never before seen gameplay mechanics. TINY METAL is the Japanese Arcade Wargame you wish you had as a kid.


Not a fan of the low unit variety, but everything else looks great. Apparently they had a Kickstarter that failed, and then went to Steam Greenlight and succeeded. It is a very unambitious project, with very low-spec computers required and only an 8-10 hour campaign, but who knows what they will do next if they succeed? Day 1 purchase for me.

The game features 20 campaign missions following the story of Lt. Nathan Gries. It offers four units with multiple upgrade options to customize, the option to deploy your unique combination of units for each mission, skirmish modes to replay maps, and comes in both English and Japanese language options.

Tiny Metal releases this fall for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Looking great. But "four units"? Are they serious?
