Debt Collect For The Sake Of  The Galaxy In Tax-Force

The galaxy is relying on you to save it from bankruptcy! Either collect the debt or reinvest in the city, or face the consequences! Tax-Force, coming to Steam.

Sure, he’s one of the best stand-ups around, but how would you like to hunt down Jimmy Carr in the upcoming Tax-Force. Alright, Jimmy doesn’t feature, but other tax-evading mutant billionaires do.

A combination of ‘narrative action rogue-lite and political sim mashup’, the game is being developed by Outsider Games, who you might remember did the excellent Jennifer Wilde: Unlikely Revolutionaries

With just seven days to save the planet from bankruptcy, you must either collect the debt or reinvest in the city; otherwise, it’ll burn to a crisp! Key features in Tax-Force include:

  • Melee Combat – a focus on tough, close-range combat, with hand-drawn, rogue-lite biomes that remix with every run. 
  • Mutant Powers – Specials inspired by superhero mutant powers. Astral Projection! Metal Man! Optical Blasts!
  • Strategy and Morality – Negotiate with targets to affect the economy, narrative and gameplay on each run. Every decision challenges players to choose between sci-fi metaphors for socialist vs capitalist economic policies.
  • Rebuild – As you reinvest in society, the gameplay reacts. Price and potency of healing responds to public or private investment in healthcare. Weapons and criminal activity adjust as you increase defence spend, while new bridges and paths appear as you invest in infrastructure. 
  • Branching Narrative – Every decision leads to narrative consequences for the Farset13 citizens, as their stories are guided by your choices, and the city organically grows and changes around them.
  • Timeloop – Death activates your time-travelling mutant power, sending you back to Day 1, armed with knowledge of your enemies and the consequences of your actions.
  • Stunning Visuals – Gorgeous, hand-drawn comic book art style inspired by Jim Lee and 90’s X-men comics.
