The release of the Indiegogo funded tactical turn-based action mech game Dual Gear has been delayed until 2018, according to an official press release sent out by Orbital Speed Studios, an indie game company out of Bangkok, Thailand headed by veteran game developer Pongpat Pongsakorntorn.
Dual Gear completed its Indiegogo funding in October 2016, reaching 226% of its original goal and raising over $21,038 USD. The game draws obvious inspiration from previous Japanese mech games in style and design such as the Front Mission series. It uses the Unreal 4 Engine and lets users customize each mech, structure the group and level up each pilot.
Since it is using the Unreal 4 Engine, it does not have stringent system requirements for the PC, requiring only at least an AMD Phenom X4 or Intel Q6600 CPU with 4GB of RAM and an AMD 7750 or NVIDIA 550Ti GPU. The game is also intended to be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For now however, players can only try it out with the Pre-Alpha demo.
