Description

In Chroma Squad you manage an indie Japanese superhero TV studio, casting actors, purchasing equipment, crafting weapons and giant Mechas out of cardboard and glue to create your own TV show. Once the cameras are rolling, you take control of your cast of five colored-jumpsuit-clad warriors in dramatic, turn-based battles.

History

The idea of a game about a Super Sentai studio came naturally to the team. Most of the team was a fan of those series when young, since they were very famous in Brazil during the 80's and 90's. Behold Studios went to Kickstarter in 2013 to pitch this crazy idea to the world. Turns out the world likes it - Chroma Squad was 180% funded and was released for PC, Xbox, PS4 and mobile!

Features

  • Create your own TV studio: hire actors, upgrade your equipment, do marketing, craft weapons, costumes and giant cardboard robots!
  • Tactical RPG combat with a twist: combine your heroes' abilities with Teamwork maneuvers!
  • In-Depth RPG systems with skill trees, random equipment, crafting, and branching storyline!
  • A love letter to tokusatsu and the Japanese series of our childhood!
  • Deliciously-animated pixel art and a chiptune soundtrack that shines like justice!
