Iron Grip : The Oppression has a completely new kind of gameplay, combining First Person Shooter with Real Time Strategy elements in a way never done before.

Report RSS Frag Fest 2008 & Help Wanted

Return to the roots of Iron Grip, and join us every Saturday at 3pm EST for a round of Iron Grip. Meanwhile, we're hunting for programmers to help us turn 1.5 into a reality!

With Warlord coming soon, it's easy to forget about Iron Grip: The Oppression. This month, let's go back a little and pay homage to the Half-life 2 total conversion that first introduced the Iron Grip universe. Challenge Monique, the newest staff member of Isotx, to a round or two every Saturday at 3PM EST for the month of June 2008. But be warned--she has plenty of FPS experience, so it could actually be you who gets owned instead. You might just want to bring a friend or two.

Iron Grip: The Oppression - Frag Fest 2008


The Frag Fest is going down every single Saturday at 3PM EST for the month of June! Anyone can play, regardless of location, by simply loading up their copy of the game and joining us in a that evening. Do not attempt to join us through Steam, or your connection will receive an error disconnecting you. Make sure you use the game itself to log-in and you will be able to connect just fine.

Feel free to bring your friends with you as well; as far as we're concerned, the more, the merrier! We suggest you sign up ahead of time using the CrosuS application or the CrosuS event page, although it is not mandatory, just so we can get a headcount. If you can't make it on time, feel free to drop by at anytime after 3PM to see if we're still playing. Inputs on maps to use or general questions can be sent to monique@isotx.com or PM'd to her on the Isotx forums.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Help Create Iron Grip: The Oppression 1.5
We haven't abandoned IG:TO 1.5. But we need help! We are in dire need of skilled, committed programmers, to help us finish the new-and-improved mod. If you reckon you've got what it takes, then please email suzie@isotx.com. It's a great opportunity to be part of a fast expanding team, and to get your name onto what promises to be a stellar mod.

I'd love to play but currently there's 30 servers with nobody on them. :P This mod needs really died a long time ago. Hope this brings some players in though..

I've had some great fun on this mod, but I think you need a new version to bring it back to life.

Unfortunately this time is extremely awkward for me (and I'm guessing most non-Americans) a later time would be much better.

We are working on it, but sadly we need programmers to really get it moving again.

It's an awkward time but our players are American and Non-American, so... we can't exactly change times to please everyone. Someone will always be left out :( Sorry you can't make it~

How many players do you need in a game?

While the actual number might vary Defur, I'm assuming between 1 and about 8 or so. This is definitely not a 32 player per server mod due to the gameplay structuring.
