Description: Tactera is a Real-Time Strategy game played on a “virtual tabletop”. It is the winner of the Casual Connect Indie Prize, winner of a Proto Award, and was a Mobile VR Jam Finalist.
Inside a futuristic war room, a 3D hologram shows two armies on the verge of battle. You are the tactical mastermind who must command your troops to victory. Build swarms of gunships, tanks, bombers, and other units, and use your hi-tech view of the battlefield to strategically outmaneuver the enemy!
Set to a wireframe sort of graphical style this is one of those games that begs to be played with a glove controller. Sadly these don’t exist yet for the Gear VR so for now a controller of tapping the side panel will have to do. It feels great to play and while I did lose 99% of the time I enjoyed it. When the full game to this comes out we will be looking forward to playing it.
