Trudy’s Mechanicals announced

Trudy's MechanicalsLaura Marshall of Canadian indie studio Incubator Games writes in to announce a new sRPG in development. Called Trudy’s Mechanicals, the game takes place in a gritty steampunk setting filled with steam-powered mechanical creations and Slavic influences.

The developers have not done much to provide us with a narrative premise–this is all we’ve got for now:

The title pits a host of combat veterans, bespectacled scholars, and industrial labourers against the corrupt gentry in a full-scale guerrilla war.

Luckily, there’s also a teaser trailer with a bit more narrative information:

The developers note that characters in Trudy’s Mechanicals will not be class-based, instead possessing distinct abilities and personalities “akin to characters of fighting games or MOBAs.”

The game is also planned to feature interactive environments. To wit: “harvest fallen foes and allies to use as weaponry, destroy structures or extend bridges to create alternative paths, or hide inside armoured turrets for extra protection and firepower.”

Trudy’s Mechanicals is planned for Windows release in 2016.

    That first screen, The Sleepless Forge, looks fascinating. It also appears almost like a two-player strategy game, rather than an RPG, but that remains to be seen.

    Wonder how deep the Slavic vein will run. I complained in an RPG review back in the 90’s that the Russian developers had done nothing more than offer the usual dwarves, elves and goblins as enemies, despite the richness of their own folk culture. Would be great to see something else for a change.
