Fireshine Games is excited to announce Toads of the Bayou, the debut game from French studio La Grange, coming to Steam in 2024.
Toads of the Bayou is an isometric, turn-based tactical game with roguelike deckbuilding and settlement-building elements set within a cursed bayou. The player controls a band of well-dressed toads looking for a place to settle in the swamps of the deep south. But there are evil forces at work and you must battle to protect your settlement from the waves of Baron Samedi’s forces.
Expand your toad population, create a powerful deck and outwit your opponent in strategic grid-based combat. Build and fortify your settlement with a variety of unique buildings and upgrade your abilities across each run, switching between combat and building management in two distinct phases of gameplay.
“Toads of the Bayou is about combining the southern gothic spookiness and the sweet taste of cartoon memories, into our own take on the turn-based tactical genre,” said Alexandre Clement, Game Designer at La Grange. “The goal for us was to allow the player to establish their place in this cursed environment, and make them appreciate how hard they fought and what they stood for. Nothing is ever granted in the Bayou, and thriving against the Baron’s evil forces is a real achievement.”
