Care to chuckle? Watch out for Grotesque Tactics 2

2 mins read

Grotesque Tactics was something of a unique game. It was a tactics RPG available for PC download, with a real sense of humour. For people used to the epics like Final Fantasy Tactics, the self-referential parody of Grotesque were like a breath of fresh air.

It earned a cult following, so the sequel: Dungeons & Donuts, is a game worth looking out for. The story itself sets the game up well:

The story of Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts begins as the citizens of the Kingdom of Glory celebrate their victory over the Dark Church. While in the catacombs of their former enemies, their revelry is disturbed by a sudden all-encompassing fog. Those that remain alive after the strange attack, barricade themselves in the depths of the catacombs. As time passes, food becomes scarce and the people of the Kingdom of Glory begin to realize that they might all meet their demise. The ‘heroic’ Knights of Glory, shady mercenaries and the arrogant high elves band together into guilds in order to survive and escape the dank catacombs. Unfortunately, the guilds are far too concerned with their distaste for each other, thus allowing for an awakening of dark forces in the dungeons below.

So, very much along the lines of parody classics like Order of the Stick. But while we wait for an Order of the Stick Tactics, this will do just fine.

In the mean time, have a look at the original game to whet your appetite:
