Mechajammer Combat Deep Dive and Soundtrack

With Whalenought Studios’ cyberpunk RPG Mechajammer launching in a couple weeks, we get this here Steam announcement positioning itself as a deep dive into the game’s combat system. And while there’s nothing deep about it, it still can give you a decent idea for what to expect. Just be sure to check out the actual article for all the gifs. And while you do that, you may also want to familiarize yourself with the game’s official soundtrack.

And here are the combat-related text bits:

Mechajammer is a fast-paced turn-based tactical RPG. All of the tactical detail of turn-based strategy with none of the waiting around.

In Mechajammer, you take your turn, and then every other character on the map — friend or foe — takes theirs simultaneously. This keeps the action flowing without sacrificing nuanced decision-making.

In Mechajammer’s combat system, you directly control the player character and can issue orders to companions, who will then operate independently.

You’ll find a huge arsenal of weapons as you explore Calitana: slug guns, harpoons, crowbars, plasma pistols, machetes, and much more.

That’s it for the first of our Mechajammer deep dives. We’ll be back soon with an in-depth look at stealth and how to slink through Calitana undetected.
