Each with special attributes and abilities that counter each other. While emphasizing the need to have a solid strategy to win and developed in Unreal Engine 4.

The games Linux release:

According to the games developer Playwood Project, their ultimate goal is to release a Linux and Mac version. It won’t be for the Early Access stage of the product because they don’t know what effect that will have on the current pipeline. But it’s very much on their agenda.

Trailer for tabletop RTS:

“We created Wartile to be a living, breathing tabletop video game. One that invites the player into a beautifully rendered miniature universe full of small adventures and challenges. Events that require real time strategical decisions”, said Michael Rud Jakobsen, Founder and Creative Director of Playwood Project. “The digital diorama aspect gives the game a totally unique graphical look and feel that strategy and tabletop fans will love”.


Wartile is a single player and multiplayer real time tabletop RTS inspired game. All with a strong turn based flavor to it. The game replicates the feeling of playing the tabletop RTS gamesd but with faster, more immediate combat. Each Battle Board is an intricately realised digital diorama. Complete with tiles that allow players to strategize their tactical moves and attack in real time.

The games units are fully customizable with armor, weapons and new stat tokens. Hence the players can pick these up throughout the tabletop RTS game by completing special challenges. Stat tokens provide points that players can add to their characters stats which unlock when players level up. Stat tokens can be available in each of the various Battle Boards in the game. Players can add a tactical edge to their combat by utilizing Ability cards and Godly cards. While their figurine gains more experience by completing special battle board objectives. Godly cards and abilities can be put together by the player before engaging in battle. While also being available during combat, these cards can easily change the course of the fight should the odds stack against their favour.

Wartile also allows players to unlock and collect an array of different characters. All with different combat abilities to provide a choice of tactical options before they embark on each quest.

Wartile’s impressive digital dioramas and innovative game mechanics aim to bring a wholly unique and refreshing perspective to the RTS genre. Players will be challenged to lead a group of Viking warriors. All available in a series of battle boards, each board has its own story and lore.
