Hex Gambit Characters

In a world called Agon, the sharpest strategic minds command squads of expendable automatons in an explosive arena sport called Hex Gambit.

Hex Gambit is a fresh take on turn-based strategy, designed to minimize complexity and maximize creativity. It’s easy to learn, there are tons of interesting ways to combine moves and characters, and battles only take around 15 minutes for experienced players.

Our checkers-inspired movement mechanic, called crowdsurfing, makes getting around the board a fun puzzle in and of itself. Minions can bounce off the head of any neighboring unit to land on the opposite side, and that’s chainable if a bunch of characters are standing in a line. What would be a traffic jam in most TBS games is a wealth of options in Hex Gambit.

Before each match, you’ll customize a squad of 5 minion classes and 1 captain, who packs a unique Ultimate that can help you out of a tough situation. There will be 7 minions to choose from on launch day for 21 team combinations, times 6 captains. More minions are planned as post-launch DLC to increase that variety exponentially.

A quick setup phase cuts right to the action: arrange some starter minions however you like on your side of the map. Victory Points are awarded for minion kills, and for each time you can “tap” a crystal pillar on the hostile side of the map. First to 10VP wins.

The heart of Hex Gambit is our competitive league play, the Apex Cup. Each month, all of Hex Gambit’s players choose a faction and face off in a community-wide turf war. Points you earn in league matches, win or lose, help your team seize territory on the Summit. Trophies are awarded to all members of the winning faction each season, and to the top performers on each team.
