A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Download NowName your own price

Sol Standard is a PVP-focused turn-based tactics game that pits two players against each other in the pursuit of tactical supremacy! There are 12 distinct unit classes with their own unique abilities available, as well as computer-controlled monsters that add a wrinkle to the scenario. Plenty of items and interactable environments allow for different gameplay experiences on different battle maps, and many maps have randomized elements to keep maps replayable.

Single player maps are also included so that you can play on your own, and practice for playing against your friends!

Wow cool game! You're clearly a Fire Emblem fan and there's clearly a lot of passion put into this project! There's a humble bundle with a ton of game icons. Do you think it might be useful at all for your game?

Also you should post about your game on Serenesforest, it's a Fire Emblem fanpage. I'm not sure what forum thread specifically but they might appreciate a game like yours.

Hi, thanks for taking time to check out the game! I’ve seen that bundle before and skimmed through it looking to see if it might be a good fit, but the art styles are a bit too hi-res for my kind of projects. I am focusing more on doing my own art going forward as opposed to using other folks’ assets for future work, anyways.

Fire Emblem is definitely one of many sources of inspiration for this game! The original idea was to make a Fire Emblem-style game I could play with my friends, though it has morphed into more of its own thing since then with a lot of other influences (DOS2, 40k, etc). I don’t know where a good place to post about it on this FE site would be and I’m pretty bad at shilling my own stuff and it’s not exactly a fangame, so I’ll take a look around and see if there’s a place that makes sense.

Cool! Also what's the inspiration behind the name of the game?

That one’s pretty simple; I wanted something with alliteration and something vaguely war-related but not immediately obvious (a battle standard flag) and I played with a bunch of names until I settled on this one. No big inspiration for that I’m afraid, haha.

i do the download of the game, i use ubuntu 19.10 and a like to know how to run that game. i download a .zip file, i extracted the game. but don't show any icon when i can open the game. what can i do? sorry for my english, i hope you understand me.

On Linux it should just be the SolStandard file without an extension. You should be able to open it by double-clicking it, or use a terminal to run the file.


it doesn't happen to me, how can i use the terminal for that?

It works for me on a fresh install of Ubuntu just by double-clicking the SolStandard file. If you need one-on-one assistance, you can join the Discord and I can help you there.

maybe i need your assistance, what is your discord?

I saw this tagged as open source, where can I find the source code?

Hi. You can find the project on my GitHub here: https://github.com/Talberon/solstandard

Fantastic, thank you!

When I connect my controller it does not respond. I went into setting and tried to reconfigure it but it would not let me. (P.S. This game is AWESOME.)

Which platform are you playing on and which kind of controller are you trying to connect with? I know of an issue with Xbox One controllers on Mac, but any detail you can provide will help me figure it out.

Glad you enjoy the game! :)

I am using an Xbox  One controller on Mac with a driver... But what was unusual was that when I closed the driver the game crashed.

Which driver are you using? Also are you using it wired or wireless? I will take a look into this tonight.

I use a the newest version of an Xbox 360 Controller Driver by FranticRain on github. (Works for Xbox One Controllers.) I run it on macOS Catalina.

Okay; I've released a new version for Mac that should let Xbox One controllers be picked up as gamepads properly now (v1.0.3). Please let me know if that works for you!

There is an issue with the how to play button... It takes me to the credits... Checking the website for instructions.

Thanks for the heads-up! I will push a new build that fixes this in a few minutes.

EDIT: It should be fixed now!
