Play OverviewPlay Overview

Tenderfoot Tactics (2020) is a role-play adventure game where you play a young adventurer in a vast open world. The visuals and the Final Fantasy Tactics-style battles look simple but offer depth that requires you to learn the deterministic combat system and world rules. This creates an adventure that is focused on skill more than dice roles or chance.

Your mission is to save your town and get to the bottom of a terrible fog that has beset your world. With nowhere left to call home, your small party of adventurers sets out to find a way to save the many goblin towns of the rocky coast.

You work with different Elements to turn battles in your favour. Open chasms, raise mountains, boil lakes, drain rivers, and start fires. But each ability also has consequences so this must be used with care. As you progress through the world you will unearth ancient ruins, discover strange artefacts, and meet new friends. It's a lush environment that invites exploration and poking around. You can travel on foot, by boat or even take to the skies as a bird to survey the landscape.
