Brookwood Pocket Tactics is a game, that draws heavy inspiration from Redwall, WarCraft, and the tactics genre. Developed with the Forgotten Engine by nowheresoft and GB Studio, it immerses players in managing troops amidst a medieval animal battle. Players choose from four factions — the Khalifa of Rodents, the Sultanate of Cats, the Eashir of Birds, and the Hashd’n of Lizards — set in an Islamic-inspired world. The game offers both digital and physical copies, with the physical version including a professionally created box, cartridge, full-color manual, and sticker sheet.

The narrative unfolds in a world transformed by a cataclysmic volcanic eruption, resulting in the emergence of mystical crystals pulsating with raw magic. Amidst newfound abundance, tribal factions — the Khalifa, Sultanate, Eashir, and Hashd’n — vie for dominance, leading to conflict fueled by diverging ideologies. An unlikely alliance between the Khalifa and Sultanate confronts the formidable Eashir, leading to years of uneasy peace. However, as tensions rise and old wounds resurface, the fragile treaty faces the threat of collapse.

The game’s development credits include Jared Hansen for coding and graphics, with music and sound effects sourced from the GB Studio Community Assets.
