BedlamIf you haven't heard of Bedlam, it's an upcoming post-apocalyptic, turn based, tactical rogue-like that looks like Mad Max and Banner Saga had a baby. Bedlam looks at games like FTL and XCOM for inspiration and is built on the Banner Saga Engine. Imagine Oregon Trail, chess, and 80s-era over the top apocalyptic landscape, and you get the picture. In a recent interview, one of the developers said that after the game comes out on Steam in September, their next stop is probably going to be iOS because the game plays great on a tablet (they've already been running it on the Microsoft Surface, and "it's awesome.") If the game makes enough money, an iOS port is highly possible.

Bedlam

The game has many of Banner Saga's elements, like supplies management (which feels a lot like FTL), and chess-like battle strategy, but it adds to that recipe four unique races, four character classes, randomly generated encounters, and crazy, over-the-top attacks and weapons. The company appears very proud of its "blitz battle system," which has no turn-order for combatants, powerful Dozer (huge rolling fortresses with armors and weapons) equalizers, and tide-changing Dozer weapons. By having no turn order, the game plays more like chess than Banner Saga, but instead of pawns, you have melee, shotgun, pistol, and rifle classes. According to Feargus Urguhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, Bedlam is Fallout on wheels. The game also takes its rogue-like reputation seriously as you only get one chance to get your crew through the hellish world of Bedlam. Sounds great, at least in my books, so hopefully we'll get Bedlam on iOS soon.

    Like the fact that it runs "awesome" on windows tablet and then we'll release for iOS. Too bad they went the Microsoft way first...hope they don't regret it!

  • HelperMonkey

    First sentence hooked me. The rest quickly reeled me in. I rarely instabuy anything, but... I'm drooling.

  • muttso1o

    Was afraad after reading Bedlam that EA rereleased their version for mobile.

  • Bloodangel

    It does show the apple icon along the bottom at the end, so I'd say it IS definatly coming to iOS... Not hopefully

    • Saucepolicy

      That's for the Mac version, not iOS.

    I hope this doesn't have the turn thing like banner saga.
    I had to give up the game when I would have 5 guys on my side and they would have 2 that got to act every other turn and I couldn't properly defend my guys because 1 of my guys had to wait 5 turns to move and they get to continuously move. I like XCom where each unit has a specific amount of movement and they all act in 1 turn.

    Lol, darn. Thought this was Bedlam PC game port.

  • anabolicMike

    I want this game almost as much as I want a certain Latina singer who is way to young for me.... Okay okay so I don't want it even half as much but it sounded cool to say no?

  • Bloodangel
