Shotgun Infantry

This week we have some exciting news! The Iron Star Kickstarter will be going live next Saturday, April 19th!

The team here at Black Howler Studios has been working extremely hard to make Iron Star a reality. We really hope everyone will enjoy the gameplay trailer accompanying the Kickstarter launch and help us get this project funded.

We will only be asking $10 for a digital copy of the game.

There will be plenty of other neat rewards as well, we hope you check them out and spread the word!

Iron Star - Guardian

Why Kickstarter?

We love games. And we love art. Everyone on this project has been working for free on their own time to bring Iron Star to life. We are coming to Kickstarter to get the funds we need to hire programmers, musicians, and artists to really get the game the level of polish we want. 

We really believe Iron Star is going to be an entertaining strategy game with an awesome art style people will love. For only 10 bucks you can help a passionate dev team achieve create something great.

 Iron Star - Kaboom

Thank you to everyone who read our update! We will be posting again next week when our Kickstarter page goes live!

Until then, please follow us on Facebook or Twitter to talk to us and get news quicker!

I have a suggestion for the germans, if they get some sort of elite or storm troopers make there masks skull like. if you think about it, itd be damn scary t have a slow moving guy bearing down on you fearlessly with the face of death.

I love Tower Defense games and when you release the game I would love to test it and review it on my channel if you want, I would greatly appreciate an early access download if its not to much trouble

My Channel is Silver8848 and I will start reviewing upcoming indie games

I have mixed feelings on it being a Tower Defense, they're not my favorite. But I'd really like to see more artwork, and obviously some gameplay, and then possibly see this concept taken further!

Awesome, appreciate the support! It won't be your typical tower defense, it will have more real time strategy elements incorporated. The gameplay will be focused on spawning units to destroy your enemy, as well as building towers and defenses to protect your base. Glad you enjoy the art style, means a lot to the team!
