Strategy meets role-play for hours of non-stop fun.
I had no idea what Armello was when I was asked to have a look at it at E3 2015, so I Googled it. One group of medievalist fantasy anthropomorphized animals later and I said yes. Don't judge. Believe it or not, the devs didn't know about the furry community going in, but they've apparently been embraced during its time on Steam, and they praised their fur fans for their feedback and support.
Armello is, of course, more than furries. It's a strategy game with RPG elements developed for the PC and coming to the PS4. The art direction is in the artistic spirit of Disney's animated Robin Hood and Mouse Guard. But Armello is more than an art style. It's a deep, fast-paced strategy experience with a lot of character.
Using a concept called "fuzzy turns" -- again, nothing to do with furries, and even if it did have something to do with furries, that would be okay -- Armello picks up the pace of the strategy genre. Instead of passively watching your opponents move, you can manage cards and prepare defences between turns. Some choices, such as cards played during combat, are timed, so you're constantly on your toes, thinking fast, but you also have to think critically. It's still a turn-based game, so looking (and planning) before you leap is essential. If you're getting the sense that gameplay is deep and complex, you're right. It takes some time to get the hang of it.
