Description

Engage in a battle of wits with Atriage, a turn-based strategy game crafted in the spirit of classic board games. Inspired by Sci-fi space naval battles in 80s Anime, command a fleet of ten warships against a rival commander in an all-out battle for supremacy. Outwit your opponent by mastering four different ship classes, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and roles in combat. Execute your strategy on a randomly generated playfield, opening new possible tactics every time you play. Take advantage of variations in your ship’s endurance parameters to withstand your rival’s onslaught, but watch out, if your battle strength reaches zero, it’s Game Over.

History

On July 2014, the Dev Team known as Batú Games reformed after being on hiatus for several months with the goal of approaching game development with a new direction and ambitions to become incorporated into a fully-fledged video game company in Puerto Rico. During that time, we pondered about what our big debut PC title would be and how to get the ball rolling with our new workflow. After the team brainstormed for the right approach, Roberto Feliu Maldonado, currently our Vice President, proposed a promising plan to enter the PC market with an exciting new strategy board game, formerly known as, Project Flag. At first, we had a lot of setbacks when we encountered new challenges while working on the advanced AI, working with Network infrastructure, and trying to narrow down the right aesthetics for the game. Initially, Project Flag had a mythological theme and would be played in a temple with actual game pieces, but designs never made it out of the concept stage, and a lot of our work during this phase never got used. Nevertheless, we pushed on, and kept reworking the game and polished its core gameplay until we finally crafted Atriage. With an entirely new direction, we conceived the idea of converting our former game pieces into warships waging battles in classic Sci-fi Space Opera fashion. The name Atriage was coined by merging the words “Attrition” and “Triage”, which perfectly describes the heavily strategic focus of the game by managing units in challenging risk-reward scenarios. A year and a half after its initial conception, Atriage is finally ready to see the light of day, and provide a captivating experience to strategy and table top enthusiasts alike.
