Ironcast is set in a war-torn alternative history; a time when refined men and women in formal attire commanded gigantic mechanical war machines, laying waste to enemies of the British Empire!

As Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall Ironcast – each towering construct bursting with advanced Victorian era weapon systems and electrical shields. Players must face off against an invading enemy force in order to defend 1880’s Victorian England.

Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast’s various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy their opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapons fire is due.

Since the announcement of Dreadbit’s partnership with Ripstone last October which guaranteedIroncast’s Kickstarter stretch goals, the development team have been hard at work implementing new features in Ironcast. Not only have the team worked to incorporate their stretch goals, but several additional improvements have been made thanks to feedback from Kickstarter backers who took part in the Ironcast closed Beta. Some of the bonus features players can expect to see in the game include the likes of; an added Commander, an extra Ironcast design, more locations and missions and new buffs and abilities, as well as a few more surprises.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
