Traction Edge is top down squad fighting game with roguelike mechanics and a steampunk theme. You choose agents and their equipment for each map then proceed to kill everything on the opposing side. Between levels you can train your agents by spending skill points.

Story

Pulled from the comfortable surroundings of your village constabulary and recruited into a shadowy government agency, you are drawn into an inexplicable mystery of disappearing townsfolk and strange sentient mechanical contraptions. Slowly you uncover a sinister plot that appears to have no aim nor instigators. Who is behind these atrocities in Victorian England? and what is the Traction Edge?
