Bad North was announced a few months ago, but it may have flown a little under the radar for most. As you can see in the above announcement trailer, the game's action takes place on small isometric islands, populated by  your various soldiers. Your job is to protect the land from the invading forces as they sail in, moving your groups  of swordsmen, archers, and others to tactical positions in real time. It also features rogue-lite elements, meaning it should provide plenty of replayability.

Having played it briefly at this year's EGX Rezzed, we can say that it works very well, and the cutesy style is really rather lovely. Although no firm release date has been set, we know that it's due out within the third quarter of 2018, so it's not far off now.
