GDC 2016: ‘Ticket to Earth’ Puts a New Spin on Turn Based RPG’s

Ticket to Earth from Robot Circus is an upcoming turn based RPG with an interesting twist of a new mash-up game mechanic. While it’s still early in the development for Ticket to Earth, with the game is expected to launch late in the year, the early game play is there and it looks promising. In the game players have one or more players each given a two turns per round. Those turns can be used to gather along a single color tile on the floor or attack. The interesting and different part of the game is that it adds a little bit of a puzzle mode to the standard turn based gameplay.

There are of course power ups and buffs to increase both the gather skills and the attacks of the player controlled characters. The video below shows a bit of the gameplay. There’s also a single player campaign with a real time PVP mode planned.
