What happened so far

Not long ago, there was peace in the inner systems.
United under the flag of the United Space Federation, hostilities between planets laid dormant, but not forgotten.

But after a bloody war against the Gark - an alien race that anounced itself to humanity with a powerful and brutal offensive - the Federation lost most of its military and political power.
Warlords rose to power and old tensions came back. Private armies were mobilized and new alliances were forged.

The Tzanar Union - a regional power and once a strong provider of troops and equipment for the USF - massed its army.
Their homeland wasted and dried out by excessive refining and manufacturing, it was time to expand its borders.

First by claiming disputed backwater colonies near their home world.
And then targeting smaller governments of weaker political power.

Tzanar's next target is the planet Genai, a small but rich agriworld in the Oberon system.
The Noctae Republic - ruling faction of Genai - never invested in a large military force, instead keeping a small elite force strong enough to protect their borders with the support of militia units.
When the Noctari planetary governor learned that the Tzanari fleet was moving to Oberon, he decided to ask for the help of all nearby mercenary units to assist in the defense of the planet.
Never had the Noctae Republic used the services of mercenaries, but these were desperate times.

 

One of the units to answer the call were the Black Talons.
Stationed aboard the battlecruiser "Paladin", the Black Talons roamed the system looking for contracts. And this was a very big contract. It was impossible to refuse.

But when the "Paladin" arrived in the Oberon system, it was too late.
Genai was already occupied, Noctae's army scattered throughout the planet.

In a matter of hours, the Tzanari fleet occupied the system Stargate, leaving everyone stranded inside. Supporters and allies of the Noctae Republic were being hunted and destroyed.

The only chance to get out alive now is to defeat the Tzanari forces. 
And the only way to do it is to help Noctae retake their planet.

We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Kalypso Media for the release of our latest title: Mechs & Mercs: Black Talons

In Mechs & Mercs: Black Talons you take command of the Black Talons company, a fearless mercenary unit currently stationed in the Oberon system, torn apart by ruthless dictators and power-hungry warlords. The Black Talons provide everything from specialist squads and supplies, to entire armies, bases and powerful mechs of warfare to fight the warmongering Tzanar. This comes at a price, of course – but in a universe controlled by the corrupt, is it enough to stand by and watch while great cities burn to the ground and whole civilizations are destroyed in the name of conquest?


General Features:
- Extensive campaign mode where the actions of the player have a direct impact on the local system’s balance of power
- Persistent and fully customizable squads
- Various unit classes with specialized roles and their own distinctive set of weapons, abilities and skill trees
- 5 worlds with differing environments and weather conditions that directly affect battle
- Powerful mechs can enter the battlefield and turn the tide of combat
- Customize and upgrade your base with weapons and infrastructure that will boost squad numbers, teleport soldiers or even bombard the battlefield
- Faction relations influence a player’s progress throughout the game: either by giving access to unique units or interfering with missions


Mechs & Mercs: Black Talons will be available to purchase via digital distribution for Windows PC, Mac and Linux in Q4 2014!


And without further ado, here's the first trailer:

It's with great satisfaction that we announce that Mechs & Mercs: Black Talons is out now on the major digital stores! Retail version will be available in a couple of weeks.

A devastating war has torn the galaxy apart. Dozens of planets and star systems have declared independence or forged new alliances, while governments fall and warlords rise to power. Chaos and corruption are everywhere and so to maintain order and negotiate peace between the ruling factions, private mercenary armies are called to action.

You are commander of the Black Talons company, currently stationed in the Oberon system. After a fierce campaign, the military Tzanar Union has overrun the planet of Genai and blocked all departure from the system: leaving you and the Black Talons stranded. The only means of escape is to help the Genai forces repel the invading army and recapture the planet.

● Extensive campaign mode where the actions of the player have a direct impact on the local system’s balance of power
