8-player co-op strategy/RPG set on Mars during "The Red Solstice"
In The Red Solstice you control one of the eight space marines that are
trying to find out what happened to human colonies on Mars during the huge
storm called The Red Solstice. The mix of a dark and gritty Science Fiction
setting and addictive adrenaline filled gameplay – based on advanced tactics and
quick decisions at the same time – makes for a great atmosphere and gameplay
The game takes place in about one hour gameplay sessions during which
players need to scavenge for supplies, find and fortify the base and then
defend it from an almost infinite amount of monsters and evacuate survivors. An
experience based character advancement system, as well as advancing your space
marines equipment during the sessions is another fundamental part of the gameplay.
