London, UK – May 12, 2022.
The London-based (the UK) indie games publisher Modern Wolf and the New York-based (the US) indie games developer Afterschool Studio, today announced with great excitement and joy that their turn-based tactics sci-fi game “Cantata” is now available for PC via Steam Early Access.
From today, “Cantata” players will be able to dive into the game’s deep story campaign and enjoy the first three chapters in a character-driven narrative centring on three factions: Humans, Machines and Aliens.
Players choose their faction, pick from the nine playable commanding officers, and expand their hold on the planet of Shoal by deploying faction-specific units and unleashing the faction’s unique abilities. Be wary, however, as Shoal itself takes a turn alongside the player, and with its weather, fauna, and secrets, has the ability to fight back…
Take charge using brute force or as a tactical maestro, as you explore and investigate the most effective route to your opponent.
Modern Wolf also kick off their Steam publisher sale this week.
