Game Overview

Japanese tactical war gaming at its FINEST!

It's WAR in TINY METAL, the revival of Japanese arcade war gaming!

Outfight the enemy with your own army of foot soldiers, tanks, helicopters, tactical vehicles, and fighter jets. Capture rival territories and extend your military power over the sprawling map of Zipang. Follow the gripping story of Nathan Gries and answer for yourself what is -- and what isn't -- worth fighting for.

Inspired by turn-based strategy games of the past, TINY METAL takes the finely honed gameplay of classical Japanese war gaming and brings it into the modern era with great graphics, 15 unique units, and never-before-seen gameplay mechanics. TINY METAL is the Japanese arcade war game you wish you had as a kid.

Play as Artemisian Lieutenant Nathan Gries as he commands his units to victory against the villainous nation of Zipang. There will be several friends and enemies along the way with varied factions, units, and abilities in the 20 hours of single-player campaign gameplay. Players will have to carefully consider varying terrain, positioning for attacks, and strategic advancements and defenses.

 
 

Dramatis Personae

Nathan Gries

Lieutenant Nathan Gries hails from a family of military lineage. His father died in the last war when Nathan was still young. Col. Lindberg was a friend of Nathan's father and came to offer guidance to Nathan.

Nathan is well regarded by his superiors and peers alike with a promising future and noble intentions. Although Nathan is a model officer, his lack of experience may lead to situations where he could be exploited.

Wolfram

Commander Wolfram, a fierce, strategic, independent, business-minded soldier, and leader of the White Fangs. She lost her brother in the previous Artemisia/Zipang war. He fought, foolishly, for a nation that cared little for him. Which is irrelevant. He died believing he was fighting for a greater cause. She vowed never to make the same mistake. Wolfram will take any job that is profitable but one never knows what she might have up her sleeve...

Tatara

Tatara of the 1 million stones is a great vassal of Zipang Shogunate. It is with great pride that he has supported the office of the Shogun, and he feels that his rival Tsukumo is a great thorn in his side due to him having the full trust of the Shogun.

Tatara is obsessed with power, and will use whatever means necessary to increase his sphere of influence.

Isoroku Tsukumo

Lord Isoroku Tsukumo ("of 3 million stones"), the leading vassal of the Zipang Shogunate. His title is a measure of his greatness, how much he owns, and how many people he supports with his rule. Tsukumo has an extreme obligation to duty and honor. He takes care of his people first and foremost, but is always strict and lawful, especially to himself.
