The Galaxy is facing a severe financial crisis, and to save it from bankruptcy and prevent the closure of Farset13’s Solar Shield, you have been asked to lead Tax-Force. This department consists of heavily armed Treasurers with emergency powers to track down billionaire mutant tax evaders.

You have just seven days to fight your way through their defences, negotiate repayments and clear the debt directly. Or you can reinvest in your city to grow the economy before the planet burns to a crisp. Up yo you.

Features of Tax-Force

  • Melee Combat – a focus on tough, close-range combat with hand-drawn, rogue-lite biomes that remix with every run.
  • Mutant Powers – Specials inspired by superhero mutant powers. Astral Projection! Metal Man! Optical Blasts!
  • Strategy and Morality – Negotiate with targets to affect the economy, narrative and gameplay on each run. Every decision challenges players to choose between sci-fi metaphors for socialist vs capitalist economic policies.
  • Rebuild – As you reinvest in society, the gameplay reacts. Price and potency of healing respond to public or private investment in healthcare. Weapons and criminal activity adjust as you increase defence spending. New bridges and paths appear as you invest in infrastructure.
  • Branching Narrative – Every decision leads to narrative consequences for the Farset13 citizens. Your choices guide their stories, and the city organically grows and changes around them.
  • Timeloop – Death activates your time-travelling mutant power, sending you back to Day 1, armed with knowledge of your enemies and the consequences of your actions.
  • Stunning Visuals – Gorgeous, hand-drawn comic book art style inspired by Jim Lee and 90’s X-men comics.

Tax-Force will be coming to PC via Steam and is available to Wishlist now.
