Chroma Squad

An oldschool, humorous strategy game from the creators of Knights of Pen & Paper from Behold studio. The game tells the story of a group of stuntmen, who after years-long career have decide to make their own TV series and hire the player as their manager. Gameplay focuses on the economic aspects and tactical, turn-based battles. We must hire actors, give them costumes and roles in each scene. We also manage the technical aspects of the production by buying and upgrading equipment, like microphones, camera and elements of scenography. Then we start filming episodes, which take the form of tactical battles and let us use typical movies tricks and gadgets. Chroma Squad takes a lot from low budget TV series about superheroes like Power Rangers and is filled with references to the genre.

Chroma Squad is a humorous strategy game for PlayStation 4 inspired by low-budget TV series like Power Rangers. It has been developed by Behold studio, known for its Knights of the Pen & Paper.

Plot

Chroma Squad puts us in the role of manager of TV series from super sentai genre, in which a group of superheroes fight the evil with individual skills and superweapons (mainly mechs). The game borrows a lot from the spiritual heritage the genre; references to popular productions of 80’s and 90’s are numerous. The story campaign focuses on bunch of stuntmen, who after years of working in others’ project decide to create their own TV series. Surprisingly, the plot is rather complex and can lead to a few endings depending on our decisions.

Game mechanics

Chroma Squad is an economic strategy with turn-based gameplay and tactical battles. We must oversee things like hiring actors, assorting their costumes and casting them. Main characters have unique development trees, through which they learn new skills and attacks between episodes. Players also have to manage hardware; buying and upgrading equipment like cameras, microphones, element of scenography and lamps is just another of their duties.

After we’re finished with preparations, it is time to start filming episodes, which take form of a tactical RPG. We lead the team of heroes through battles against more and more powerful opponents, during which we can use TV equipment for support. Shooting fireworks on a stage, for example, will increase our attack strength. But recording doesn’t end our job, as we have to organize marketing campaigns, public comics and interact with fans.

Game modes

Aside from the single player campaign, Chroma Squad for PlayStation 4 offers a multiplayer mode, in which series of different players rival each other for audience’s attention.

Technical aspects

Chroma Squad uses simple but fitting two-dimensional retro visuals, accompanied by a catchy soundtrack.
