Tactics Ogre is a 1995 tactical role-playing game developed and published by Quest Corporation for the Super Famicom. Later, it was ported to the Sega Saturn (1996) and PlayStation (1997), the latter of which was made available in North America by Atlus USA in 1998. The second entry in the Ogre Battle series is set in the war-torn kingdom of Valeria, where heroine Denim Powell joins a local resistance organization to fight foreign occupiers and gets entangled in the ethnic tensions that are the cause of the war.
Yasumi Matsuno, the developer of Ogre Battle, served as director, writer, and main designer during the two and a half years of production. Conflicts in Europe and Asia served as inspiration for the plot, which was significantly influenced by personal and political drama over the fantasy-themed plot of Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen.
In contrast to its predecessor’s real-time fights, the gameplay in Tactics Ogre employs a fighting system that is inspired by chess. The characters were created by Akihiko Yoshida, while Hiroshi Minagawa served as the art director. The story served as inspiration for the music, which was created by Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata.
