“Halfway does not mess around when it comes to difficulty. This is an unashamedly hardcore turn-based experience. And that’s a good thing.” 8/10 – Calm Down Tom
“[...]if you’re wanting an enjoyable sci-fi story with your TBS/RPG elements, then Halfway is more than worth the miniscule price being asked for it. I look forward to the sequel (please).” 7.5/10 – NZGamer

Halfway is a turn-based strategy RPG taking place a few hundred years into the future. Humanity has begun to colonise new worlds and until now, they were alone…
In Halfway you take control of a small team of survivors faced with a violent invasion onboard the colonial vessel Goliath. As their leader you will guide them through the dark and cramped corridors of the ship to slowly take back control.
If you have any hope of surviving, you’ll have to fight, face your fears and outsmart the enemy!
Tactical turn-based battles are at the core of Halfway. Use cover, position, equipment and skills to your advantage in your battles.
Unique characters: Your team is formed of unique characters you pick up along the way. Each one of them brings their own story, skills and experiences to the journey.
Find yourself in the middle of an engrossing story-line. Step by step you’ll uncover the mysterious events that took place and what it means for you and all of humanity.
Immerse yourself in 10-14 hours of gameplay in a beautiful pixel art environment with a lovely atmospheric soundtrack by Gavin Harrison

This game reminds me of old masterpieces like the battle isle series, specially incubation was a hell of a game. i still love the titles. halfway maybe a homage but much more simplistic. i can recommend this title to everyone who likes turn- based strategy, but does not have the time or emphasis to go to deep into strategies. Surely it is much more super superficial, than other turn- based titles, but i guess this can also get counted as an advantage.
Halfway is a great experience for players loving the original X-Com games: the gameplay is, in fact, tactical turn based (similar also to Final Fantasy Tactics series), and you can grab additional party members during your road. The campaign is around ten hours long, but thanks to workshop support, the replay value is pretty much infinite. Highly suggested.
Something went wrong onboard the Goliath. Inside this spaceship there are only two sorts of "living" things : you and the zombies. Halfway is a turn-based strategy games that looks and feels a lot like Space Hulk. You control a squad of four characters and must advance through the halfways of the ship while fighting the creatures that try to kill them. But this time it's all made in Pixel Art visuals. Each character has unique abilities and personality and the story, while not being that great, is efficient enough to keep you interested. However the game can get a bit repetitive some it's not recommended to play it for too long.
