Quar: Infernal Machines, the first-ever turn-based strategy game available for the PlayStationVR, was released in all the Americas on Wednesday, 15th May 2019.

Quar: Infernal Machines

International Publisher Hoplite Research LLC today announce that in association with Steel Wool Studios, the digital release of Quar: Infernal Machines on the PlayStationStore on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019.

Quar: Infernal Machines

Quar: Infernal Machines is the first-ever turn-based strategy game available for the PlayStationVR, set in the grimmsical world of Alwyd, based on the award-winning tabletop game system This Quar's War by zombiesmith.com. Play through more than a dozen missions with a god's eye view, or go down onto the battlefield to be immersed in the action only VR can provide. Can you lead your Quar to victory?!

Quar: Infernal Machines

Command cavalry to sweep the enemy's flanks. Send Baeliog armored tractors forward to shatter hardened defenses. Your rhyflers are armed with weapons ranging from the humble Bogen rifle to heavy-automatic shotguns. Rely on your stalwart officers to keep up your troop's morale and to call in deadly airstrikes. But above all, preserve the honor of your cause!

Quar: Infernal Machines

Quar contains a living, breathing, upgradeable base, fully populated with Quar troops going about their business! Upgrade your mechanic's bay for better tractors. Upgrade the mess hall (and its chow!) for better morale, and get that hanger built so you can call in air-strikes!

Quar: Infernal Machines

"Quar: Infernal Machines redefines virtual tabletop gaming by bringing traditional H.G. Wells 'toy soldier' experiences to a new generation and bridges the gap between technology and strategy," stated Manny Granillo, Executive In Charge of Production at Hoplite Research LLC. "Whether you have VR or not, the age of interactive toys is here and games like Quar: Infernal Machines gives you the tools to jump right in!"

Features:

  • PlayStation VR compatible including Move Controller support.
  • Based on the award-winning tabletop game system This Quar's War by zombiesmith.com
  • The first turn-based strategy game available for the PlayStationVR!
  • Many hours of unique tabletop game play.
  • More than twelve levels in which to fight for the Crusader cause! From lonely outposts in the woods, to trenches, to the dead of night, and finally culminating in the epic battle of Gate 18!
  • 18 different friendly and enemy units! From infantry to cavalry and armored tractors to snipers and heavy-automatic shotguns!
  • Get up close and walk around the game units "life size" in the Quarpedia. Learn about their historical uses, stats and in-game abilities.
  • Read the letters of a Quar soldier on the front lines to his young cousin back home.

Back Story of the game:

It seems the Quar have always been at war. When the first wandering clans of insect gatherers built their low, mud-walled buildings, it was as much to keep out other Quar as the wild animals. As they first learned to make tools to get food, they quickly learned to make tools to defend themselves. The mud walls quickly became fortified citadels, and then city-states. In 5,000 years of civilization, the constants of their culture have been the changing of the seasons and the threat of war.

For the last 700 years, the Quar have been waging The Long War to a bloody stalemate that has wracked their world. But the balance of power is shifting, and Alykinder's Crusade is attempting to end The Long War by conquering all the Quar nations. This game takes you to one battle in one theater of The Long War, between the Crusader Army and the Royalist Coftyran Crymuster.
