Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, the very cool turn-based strategy game from Bulwark Studios and Kasedo Games is worth a look this weekend.

They've just announced that they've put up a Complete Collection bundle, so if you were interested in picking it up you can buy it as one big bundle of the base game plus the DLC. Not only that though, you can now try before you buy as it's on a Steam Free Weekend - this means you can download and play for free and it's also on a big discount so if you decide you like it you can grab it cheaps.

A much slower game compared with lots of other Warhammer 40K titles, and it explores a cast and setting not often shown with The Adeptus Mechanicus. As Magos Dominus Faustinius, you’ll lead the expedition on the newly rediscovered Necron planet of Silva Tenebris. Customize your team, manage resources, discover long-forgotten tech, and control your Tech-Priests’ every move.

It's highly rated, and for good reason! Not only does it look great and have a fantastic atmosphere, it's quite challenging too. If you've been after a new strategy game, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a fine choice.

Find it on Steam.

Great game !! I enjoyed this game quite a lot and was my first time I got into the warhammer universe.

I got it in a bundle, but I can't say that I liked it, even though I'm a fan of TBS. Fighting system is very convoluted and you are constantly asked to make choices while knowing nothing about potential risks and rewards. I wouldn't call the game bad overall, but it's way less fun than it could have been.

GOG buyers can fuck themselves it seems.

Quoting: GuestI suspect it otherwise runs very well (i.e good performance)
It ran quite well on my system a few months ago with kubuntu 18.04. I think this game is very well ported and performance is awesome, maybe something is wrong with your setup?

I've had quite a bit of fun with it. I think it crashed on me once . . . just a random crash, not something like always crashing at a certain point or anything. I find the fighting system interesting and I also think it kind of fits the atmosphere of the setting. Like, there you are being these priests of the technology god, and you get more actions by getting knowledge about the enemy--almost violently ripping information out of the foe during combat. Plus you got these layman soldiers to help you . . . as befits Warhammer 40K, they are so massively expendable.
The odd little choice scenarios are pretty random though; the risks and rewards from getting them right or wrong aren't huge but I still have a tendency to savescum them somewhat. But they're not a big part of the game, and although in a gameplay sense they're slightly annoying, they convey atmosphere well.
And I enjoy the dialogue the senior priests get into before you send a group on a mission. All the little quotations from the machine god bible and so forth . . . it definitely feels like it couldn't be any other setting. The music really fits too, this sort of powerful but gloomy organ-type music, very much a creepy Catholic church kind of feel.

Quoting: GuestI should really clarify: this isn't against the developer, they've obviously done a very nice job, and that somehow makes it more frustrating for me because despite all that I'm still having issues.
I ran it on a rx 570 with high settings, I think with your r9 380x you should be fine. Anyways it's turn based so having like 30fps for this type of games is enough.
sad that doesn't runs for you.
