A turn-based strategy game focused on outwitting your enemies through deception, Artifice: War Tactics takes some inspiration from XCOM and Into the Breach – challenging you to carefully place your allies in order to set up devious traps, trigger truly devastating combos, and reclaim your kingdom. Only the most cunning players will survive wave after wave of relentless foes, conquer strongholds, seize treasure, and live to fight another day!

Artifice: War Tactics has three core pillars – Deduce, Anticipate and Maximize.

  • Deduce: Observe enemy positions and deduce where they are most likely to set up an ambush.
  • Anticipate: Anticipate where the enemy is most likely to move in the following turn to position your champions.
  • Maximize: Set attack zones and trigger a chain reaction of combos to strike as many enemies as possible.

“When Silvine Game Studios first came into existence, we would pitch, explore, and brainstorm on a multitude of ideas,” says Aubhik Nath, co-founder and lead designer at Silvine Game Studios. “Yet it didn’t take long for us to realize that we all harbored a mutual love and enthusiasm for the turn-based strategy genre. Talking incessantly about tactics, different squad compositions, character upgrade paths, builds and enemy encounters over coffee breaks made us realize just how much we enjoyed these games. What if we ventured into the realm of a more reactive game concept, though? Instead of actively selecting an enemy to attack during our turn, picture a scenario where all characters would establish attack zones. These zones would trigger automatically when enemies stepped into them, offering a unique strategic twist to the gameplay. That’s the gist of Artifice: War Tactics – and why it feels so different from other strategy titles.”

Key Features

  • Set traps: Place your allies to set up attack zones called Overwatches. When enemies enter the Overwatch, your champions attack!
  • Let none escape: Trap enemy lines in your Overwatches by positioning allies carefully.
  • Trigger chain reactions: Assemble an array of champions to pierce, burn, poison, and pull enemies into other Overwatches – creating an explosive chain reaction.
  • 16+ playable champions: Unlock and customize every ally. Upgrade their traits, stat bonuses, and new abilities as the campaign progresses.
  • Spoils of war: Bolster your squad by pillaging enemy provinces for unique loot.
  • 5+ bosses: Challenge bosses in their strongholds to claim new territory.


A free demo is now available during Steam Next Fest. Pricing and launch date for the Early Access release are yet to be determined. Wishlist and follow on Steam at
