Hexes And Mechsies: Mechwarrior Tactics

Yesterday, the chug of a guitar echoed around RPS as a mech made a drop into enemy territory. Today, more mechs and from the same universe, but these ones are a great deal quieter because they exist in the frozen screenshots of Mechwarrior Tactics. Perhaps as you look at the hex-based battles you'll be inclined to play raucous music from your personal collection. That is your choice and although I'd suggest something of a more baroque nature to accompany tactical cognition, do not feel compelled to follow my lead. Click to make 'em mech-sized. Or at least a bit bigger.

HEXES! I knew they were in there somewhere. And here's more of them!

There's not a huge amount of information on the game out there, but it doesn't look like a Facebook mech-farming game, as the developer's pedigree had for a brief moment terrifyingly suggested. Here's what has been revealed, along with the very important fact that it's all turn-based.
