Triangle Strategy is an action role-playing game that combines a complex branching plot with grid-based battles like Fire Emblem or Advance Wars. It stands out not only for its unusual diorama visuals, but by creating an intertwining story of many characters

NotesAccessibility Notes


There are four difficulty modes you can choose from. You can deselect Remember Cursor Position in Battle so the cursor jumps to the next character to move with fewer inputs required and aids keeping track of units in battles.

There's a simulation mode you can use in these battles to get a preview of the outcome. This not only eases the level of complexity but also ensures you don't have too many unexpected outcomes. This, along with the variety of characters and abilities, makes for engaging and varied tactical battles.

There are a lot of plot lines, dialogue and characters to track. Main story segments are fully voice acted, but the exploration sections are not. The game lets you rewind dialogue at any point. You can also pull up reminders who who each speaker is, to reduce the cognitive load. You can control the speed of text and also switch to an auto mode so the conversations proceed without clicking. Dialogue text is quite clear (although not 1/20th of screen height), but other text and user interface is quite small and can't be changed.

The music signals progress in the battle and indicates whether you are winning or losing. You can disable the depth of field effect to ease motion sickness issues. The game relies on discerning Blue and Purple movement squares that was a colourblind problem in the demo, but a visual marker was added to the purple squares in the latest update.

Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions.
