It’s a cozy two-man episode of the GameBytes Show! But is it also a love triangle? This week Dale and Jeremy played the Project Triangle Strategy demo, despite its awful name. Combining substantial cumulative experience with Final Fantasy Tactics and the Tactics Ogre series, we break down the details of this newly-announced squad tactics game from the Octopath people. Dale also takes us note-by-note through the tone-linking puzzle game AVSEQ!
