Wargroove is on track to release this year on PC, Xbox One and Switch, and developer Chucklefish showed off the game’s campaign editor at this year’s E3.
Nintendo wouldn’t give them an Advance Wars game, so indie developer-and-publisher Chucklefish decided to take matters into their own hands and make Wargroove: a turn-based strategy game that looks a lot like Advance Wars. There’s a lot of enhancements and the like, of course, including modding capability and online play, but for the most part it looks like an Advance Wars game right down to the aesthetic and gameplay. Well, the theme is medieval instead of modern, so perhaps there’s a bit of Fire Emblem here as well. With a lot less waifus. Probably. Okay, there’s at least one waifu. And she’s mine.
Chucklefish showed off Wargroove at the PC Gaming Show yesterday, and they demoed the game’s campaign editor by quickly creating a level right on stage. If you didn’t watch the show (I don’t blame you), you can check out the demo over on Twitch. The showing features the game’s announcement trailer as well.
The campaign editor is also detailed over at the game’s official blog. It mentions that the editing tools that will be available with the game are the very same ones that Chucklefish is using to create the game’s 12 campaigns (one for each commander in the game).
The Scenario Editor is also complex enough to allow for creating cutscenes, victory conditions and feeding back into the campaign with conditions and consequences. Once you’re satisfied with your creation, you can share your levels online, both privately and publicly. Check out the blog post right over here for some neat gifs showing off the editors.
Wargroove is slated to release later this year on PC, Xbox One and Switch.
