Absolute Tactics: Daughters of Mercy, a turn-based strategy RPG is out now for Steam and Switch

From Press Release:

LOS ANGELES, CA – September 15, 2022 – Akupara Games and developer Curious Fate are excited to announce the release of the turn-based tactics RPG, Absolute Tactics: Daughters of Mercy which is now available on PC and Nintendo Switch. Blaze through legions of enemies that threaten your home using clever combat placement, powerful abilities, and, most importantly, teamwork.

“I really wanted Absolute Tactics to feel like a playful, fun adventure, all while being wrapped in a darker story. While it’s not meant to be an overly funny game, working on Borderlands games for the past 15 years has definitely taught me that all games don’t have to take themselves overly seriously.”

Creator Jason Shields unintentionally fell into AAA video game development when sending his first indie game to various developers and publishers, looking for support in finishing it. Gearbox Software was so impressed by his submission they ended up offering Jason a job. 15 years later, still working at Gearbox Software, Jason allows his indie-spirit to live on through his indie band The Capsules, and, more importantly, continuing the journey set all those years ago, Absolute Tactics.

Absolute Tactics: Daughters of Mercy retails for $24.99 USD with a 10% discount across all stores for a limited time. 


  • Content Rich – Dozens of narrative story maps plus optional maps, including additional post-game content and horde mode!
  • Challenge Yourself – Three levels of difficulty, plus an additional hardcore mode unlocked after completion – challenge yourself over and over again.
