SpaceChem developer Zachtronics Industries has announced Ironclad Tactics for PC, a card-based game filled with steam-powered robots battling in an alternate American Civil War.

PC Gamer describes the gameplay as giving out orders by playing cards from a pre-arranged deck of 20. There will be 80 different cards to unlock with a single player campaign supported by an 80 page in-game graphic novel.

The above trailer does not reveal any gameplay, but after the jump are some in-game images that show how the cards play out. Literally.
