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


  • 8 player co-op multiplayer
  • adrenaline filled and quick tactics focused gameplay
  • radically different gameplay with each of 8 different classes
  • experience based character advancement system
  • set on Mars during the huge storm called The Red Solstice
  • dark and gritty survival Sci-Fi story and setting
  • fight infinite amounts of monsters during ~1 hour sessions
  • scavenge for supplies, fortify the base, defend, evacuate
  • Challenging Boss Fights

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.

After numerous requests during it's Kickstarter campaing developers from Ironward have decided to include the basic but substantial singleplayer campaign as a part of main Kickstarter goal!

Besides that during last two updates Ironward has announced they will be giving Alpha access to the game to all backers that back the game by Sunday morning. The access will be good for 24 hours during that Sunday.

Fortification mode is another piece of news revealed during Kickstarter campaign.In fortification mode players need to defend Orbital Beacon, this mode is quite different as it drastically changes regular players tactics. Find the detailed explanation in videos with gameplay bellow.

We're considering of putting team AI inside for multiplayer, have to explore this once the main systems are done.

Singleplayer might be there on the release, depends on how much money we manage to gather from early alpha, all we get is going straight in development of the game.

It's already been greenlit I think it would be much better to go on Kickstarter and support them that way.

Reminds me of the multiplayer Starcraft mods, only this takes the cake. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
