Solstice Chronicles - Funded! Last 24h!

Hello marines!

It has been a struggle keeping pace with the development plans while at the same time juggling with all the other responsibilities the campaign demanded, but we made it and it was worth it. Not only did we manage to gather the needed financial resources, but the interest you have shown us so far has pushed us to actually finish more then initially planned so that we can show you more of the actual gameplay. For those who missed it, you can watch the replay of our yesterday's Twitch stream in which our CEO Hrvoje shows our progress with the survival mode at:

But the campaign isn't over and there is so much more that can be done.
So what now?

There is 24h more to go, and we haven't given up on our stretch goals. Any money that we receive beyond the initial goal will be going towards the development of "Improved Survival". Even if we don't manage to reach the official stretch goal, we will use the resources at our disposal to make as much of it as possible.

What we probably miss the most at this moment is multiplayer. A lot of people are disappointed by the fact that we are planning to release the game with local coop multiplayer only. It has been a tough decision to go for a game with no network multiplayer after making a successful multiplayer focused game, but unfortunately it was the right one. We want to deliver games done right, and we would never manage to make a full multiplayer supporting game with the resources we had at our disposal.

Since it's something we really want to do, we have added multiplayer as our third and most ambitious stretch goal. If we manage to reach it, a full network multiplayer mode will be added to the game some time after the release.

Best regards from the Ironward team!

Reviews

“The Red Solstice is evocative, deeply engaging action that lives primarily in its diversity of tactics.”
81/100 – http://www.4players.de/4players.php/dispbericht/PC-CDROM/Test/29007/81273/0/The_Red_Solstice.html

“What do you get when you take the likes of Dead Space and Starcraft and throw them in a blender? A bloody cascade that is The Red Solstice.”
85/100 – HookedGamers

“Players looking for a challenge will be right at home, and anyone who wants to experiment with different strategies will find a wealth of variety here. They manage to succeed in delivering an atmospheric tactical strategy game where friends become allies and allies become monster food.”
4.5/5 – Co-Optimus

About This Game

Spiritual successor of NOTD games!

If you think you have what it takes to survive the onslaught, go forth, Space Marine!

The Red Solstice is a tactical, squad-based survival game set in the distant future on Mars, playable in single-player or with up to 8 players in cooperative online multiplayer.

Roam freely over huge maps, complete randomized objectives and deal with surprise events that keep you on the edge of your seat.

Survive and conquer by any means necessary. Get stronger every time. Level up to unlock new weapons and abilities. Try to survive the storm.

Key features

  • Take the Lead: Issue commands and set waypoints and objectives for your friends as you outsmart and outgun your way through the derelict domiciles of Tharsis.
  • Play Your Way, Together: With support for 8-player co-op, play as one of 8 distinct, customizable classes, each with unique abilities and traits.
  • Odd Jobs: Tackle an onslaught of randomly generated events with just one hour to make your mark. From zone defense to supply retrieval, you’re never short of enemies to kill and objectives to complete.
  • Earn and Learn: Kill to earn experience points and unlock new abilities and classes. Heal allies, deploy turrets, launch grenades, set traps and much, much more.
  • Tactical Single-Player: Play on your own and lead a squad through a satisfying single-player campaign, and lead your squad through a wide variety of levels using The Red Solstice's Tactical Mode, which lets you issue commands while slowing down the action.
