Game makers are always looking for that perfect mix of digital and tabletop, and Red Unit Studios has taken plenty of inspiration from both in their upcoming game Warbands: Bushido.
The game is currently on Kickstarter and is an isometric tactics game that is set in 16th century Japan (via TGN), known by historians as the warring states period. Warbands: Bushido is an exclusively digital affair, but like other titles, such as Cardhunter, it adopts a wealth of tabletop hallmarks. Things like battling on sectioned tiles, using cards for abilities and strikes, and rolling dice to affect damage, all play a part in Bushido.
While the board game aesthetic is lovely, especially when it comes to the beautifully rendered miniatures, at the core is a traditional grid-based strategy game. Warbands: Bushido appears to have combined both tabletop and digital into a sleek and modern package.
