STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – November 28, 2018. It’s about time that independent game developer Fall Damage properly unveil their upcoming game BATALJ. So far, only the title has been communicated, but that changes today.
BATALJ is a fierce online turn-based action strategy game on PC where you face other players in one vs one battles with your own custom-built squad. Skill and smart plays decides who comes out victorious. With several unique mechanics and an action packed art style, BATALJ is a fresh addition to the strategic turn based genre.

“With BATALJ we wanted to take a whole new approach to the genre.” says Markus Nyström, Creative Director at Fall Damage. “We focused on making it as accessible as possible without sacrificing depth. The players will realize that they have endless options to mix and match units in their squad, trying out different lineups will be both exciting and challenging.”.
BATALJ brings new mechanics to the genre. When playing, both the player and their opponent plan their combat actions simultaneously. When the planning phase is complete the players head into the action phase and watch how their strategy plays out, revealing if the player or their opponent is the mastermind who outsmarted and outplayed the other.
