Baltimore, MD  - August 5th, 2020 - Independent developer EVC in partnership with independent games publisher Versus Evil are excited to announce that tactics RPG Wintermoor Tactics Club will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on September 10th. 

Wintermoor Tactics Club is a tactics RPG with a narrative inspired by visual novels, set in high school during the 1980’s, and combines its contemporary setting with tactical fantasy RPG combat.

In their exploration of Wintermoor Academy, players will write tabletop campaigns to help students overcome their personal problems, and discover their fantasy selves as the club grows. All of which is tempered by a warm and light hearted approach, and earnest sense of humor, a core pillar of the game’s tone and presentation.

The story will unravel the sinister truth behind the War of the Clubs as players look to break down the walls of high school cliques, make new friends and unlock their true potential. With dozens of unlockable upgrades and seven playable characters across more than 40 battles, Wintermoor Tactics Club merges a highly visual story with customized tactical combat.

“Wintermoor is really accessible for first-time tactics game players, with a puzzle-like take on the tactics combat, while at the same time giving long-time players a charming challenge to sink their teeth into,” Said Steve Escalante, GM of Versus Evil. “After launching on Steam and receiving a lot of love for the game, we’re excited to present this wonderfully funny, wholesome RPG experience to console players around the world."

“We’re excited to work with Versus Evil to put this game on consoles, and we’re especially excited to see more people enter the world of Wintermoor”, added Ben Walker, Team Lead at EVC.

Wintermoor Tactics Club is launching in English, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and simplified Chinese. Wintermoor Tactics Club is also available on Steam for PC.
