August 17, 2018 - Solo indie developer Binary Jellyfish released turn-based tactical strategy game Mind Over Mushroom today on Steam.  In Mind Over Mushroom, players will experience turn-based tactical combat without the confines of a movement grid.  There are over a dozen character classes to unlock, and combat with an emphasis on status effects.  Embark on a journey through a range of vibrant, stylized, low-poly environments to destroy a grave fungal threat.

 

The world is being consumed by a strange and terrible fungus. It has hijacked the minds of those who have come into contact with it and is forcing them to fight on its behalf, as unwilling soldiers in a massive fungal army.  The only way to stop it, is to kill it off at the source.

 

-Free-form, non-grid based movement system.  Character movement is based on distance instead of the squares of a grid.

 

-Take command of 16 distinct character types, each with their own unique abilities – from carnivorous plants and walking bombs, to necromancers and giant snails. Begin each battle by choosing your forces to best suit the tactical situation at hand and your own strategic approach.

 

-Focused purely on tactical strategy. Individual characters are not persistent from one battle to the next, allowing a fresh strategic approach to each fight.

 

-Fight your way though 25+ tactical battles set in a variety of diverse locations, from dark caves and expansive deserts to dense jungles and foreboding wastelands.

Available now on Steam for $14.99 (and get 10% off for the week of launch): https://store.steampowered.com/app/791800/Mind_Over_Mushroom
