Game description

“This game is an explosion of humor with a knowing wink in all the right places.” 80% – GAMING XP

“The humor is quite refreshing in this normally dead-serious fantasy and tactic genre, and the sophisticated quick combat scenarios are without a doubt sublime.” 81% – DemoNews

“With much blood, sweat and tears and even more humor the player is drawn into the world of the Kingdom of Glory and captured within it.” 80% – Spieletester.com

“Grotesque Tactics is a textbook example indie-gem. [it] has virtues of many blockbuster games: charm, wit and originality.” 75% – Gamestar


Grotesque Tactics is a story driven, satirical RPG with a strategic combat system. A party of 10 anti-heroes are fighting in a grotesque world that combines the features and clichés of Western and Asian Strategy RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics, Heroes of Might & Magic and Fire Emblem.

Grotesque Tactics weaves a humorous storyline and plenty of amusing dialogue, poking fun at some of the most successful RPGs, such as Oblivion, Gothic and Lord of the Rings. To protect the kingdom from the merciless cult "The Dark Church" which has murdered all of the kingdom’s heroes and knights, you will have to hire dubious soldiers and rescue jealous maidens who will follow you into combat as your groupies.


Key Features:

  • Turn based tactical battles with humorous animations not seen in any RPG

  • Distinctive party members such as the arrogant Holy Avatar, the blood thirsty Vampire Solitaire, the sweet but hot-tempered Angel Angelina and many more

  • Gorgeous village landscapes and dark, sinister dungeons

  • Scantily dressed maidens to be freed from the grasp of merciless monsters

  • Enormous, highly detailed and very angry end bosses

  • Classical RPG elements: quests, treasures, trade, leveling up and out¬fitting a party of unique heroes

  • Enjoyable multiple choice dialogues and conversation puzzles in the style of classic adventure games, such as Monkey Island or Maniac Mansion

*In chess, a Grotesque is a problem or endgame study which features a particularly unlikely initial position, especially one in which White fights with a very small force against a much larger black army. Grotesques are generally intended to be humorous.

Good Game

I bought this game because it has a battle system similar to the old Shining Force games on Genesis, which I really loved. This game didn't disappoint me personally. I expected an average game with a great battle system, and that's exactly what I got. The game is a bit blurry and dark, a problem that was mostly remedied in the sequel, but it doesn't ruin the experience. It just makes the game look uglier than it really is. There's a bunch of side quests to complete which add to the play time. It took me about a dozen hours to finish this game with 100% of the achievements. The story is sometimes funny and the characters are likable. It's tough to recommend this game because I know I'm in the minority and most people didn't love this game, but if you like the battle system in the old Shining Force games, this is easy to pick up and play as it's almost identical.
