Today, ISOTX announced the completion of the advanced graphics upgrade for its strategy based 3D browser game, Iron Grip: Marauders. The most important improvements include in-game camera enhancements as well as a full upgrade of the Unity 3D engine. 

The Game

Iron Grip: Marauders is the first online strategy game to deliver full 3D graphics directly in your browser. Thanks to a unique integration with Unity software, it is able to combine advanced strategic planning together with 3D tactical battles in a turn-based format.

Camera

The camera angles inside the game have been changed from an isometric point of view to a perspective camera. A zoom function has been included to allow closer inspection of units and structures. These alterations were made largely in response to player requests to highlight the game's 3D capabilities more. 

Unity Upgrade

At the same time, the Unity engine software has been upgraded from version 2.7 to 3.0. This development increases the stability of the game in the browser as well as paving the way for more sophisticated graphical features. Improvements such as highly detailed terrain maps, light effects and more will now be easier to realize. The aforementioned features are scheduled to be introduced at some point in the coming months.
