ShackStream: Indie-licious wields supernatural strategy in Fae Tactics

The world is in chaos and Indie-licious will have to employ strategy, cunning, and all of the magic it can muster to set it right in Fae Tactics.


Not all things can be Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on the level of synergy. For instance, when you mash human and magical realms together like in Fae Tactics, everyone involved seems to have a bad time. Except for the player that is. On today’s Indie-licious ShackStream, we’re using our strategy prowess to help set a broken world right.

Fae Tactics comes from Endlessfluff Games and Humble Games and launched on both Steam and the Humble Bundle Store on July 31, 2020. In a land where the realms of humans and magical fae were forcibly merged, the result was a ravaged land as humans and fae alike were displaced. Players take command of a group led by a girl known as Peony who can wield magic and harness the power of fae to help others. A fantastic turn-based strategy RPG, we gave Fae Tactics a glowing review for its deep strategy systems, fun characters, and lengthy branching story.
