Assemble a tiny pixelated army in Warpips

Warpips, a military tug-of-war strategy from Skirmish Mode Games, is hitting Early Access on Steam later this week.

The game comes from a handful of devs from Unknown Worlds, the studio behind Subnautica, and its sequel Below Zero. Warpips will feature short, snappy rounds of around 10-20 minutes, with Skirmish Mode Games promising "lots of replayability" with randomly generated battles. 

The graphics look very much like your standard war-themed strategy fare, though the pixel art is a nice touch and I'm a big fan of seeing ragdoll physics on tiny pixelated men.

Warpips is out in Early Access on Steam on April 29. There'll be "a fully-functional campaign with over 50 levels and a skirmish mode" available at launch, with Skirmish Mode Games ballparking around six months until a full release.

A bit of a faux-weeb, Mollie will argue why your JRPG waifu is the wrong choice despite having equally awful taste. When she's not lurking in forums for nuggets of news, she's probably still failing to full combo that one song in a rhythm game she's been playing for years.
