KillHouse Games have now re-announced Door Kickers 2: Task Force North, the sequel to their excellent 2014 tactics game.

Originally announced in 2016, with it due out cross-platform that same year. Sadly it seemed to just sort of vanish for some time—but it's back! KillHouse freshly announced it yesterday with a brand new trailer:

Feature Highlight:

  • Top Down view, optimized for tactical analysis
  • Real Time gameplay with pause-at-will to analyse and change plans
  • No turns, no hexes, no action points - just freeform planning
  • Realistic but action packed
  • Non-linear levels, multiple paths and break-any*-wall kinda freedom
  • Multiple units to play with, each with their distinct playing style
  • Weapon customization
  • Destructible environment
  • Single Player & Online Cooperative Multiplayer (2 players)
  • Custom-built 3D engine, allowing for increased moddability
  • Mission editor

In regards to Linux support, it's still going to happen and it has not been dropped from their plans. They said that "Task Force North is planned to release on Steam Early Access (Windows) in Q2 2020, with other OS versions coming later once development stabilizes". Checking in with the developer, they clarified to us on Twitter that does mean Linux just not right away. They also mentioned this on their Steam forum post.

You can wishlist and follow Door Kickers 2: Task Force North on Steam.

Awesome! I loved the first game, played through almost all the missions. Unfortunately I didn't realize that I either had on hardcore mode, or it's just a normal part of the game where if your team dies (and you don't restart the mission) it sets you back to the beginning. It was years ago so I can't remember the exact details, but I just remember booting up the game the next day and all my progress was gone.

Maybe I'll go back and play it again before this comes out (sounds like we have time)
