Support Special Effect for One Special Day: 15th July 2016

Hey everyone!

Tomorrow (Friday 15th July) we are taking part in the One Special Day charity drive to raise money for the gamers charity Special Effect . We will be donating the profits from every single game that we sell tomorrow to Special Effect to support the amazing work they do to make games accessible to everyone. This includes all our games on Steam and also our console and mobile games.

If you would like to support Special Effect, this is a really easy way to do so whilst bagging a new game at the same time.

We are also hosting a 6 hour One Special Day Twitch stream tomorrow, from 11am - 5pm (UK time). Hollie, Mike and Michelle will be playing through the Ripstone catalogue throughout the day, with code giveaways, competitions, developer chats and much more. We would love to see some of you in the chat on Friday to show your support for Special Effect!

Reviews

“[Ironcast is] completely novel, and that’s a rare thing to say about any game, and even rarer to conclude it succeeds in its originality.”

“Ironcast is a very engaging game.”

“[Ironcast is] a game that's tense and personable and clever.”

About This Game

Inspired by Victorian era science fiction writers such as H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, Ironcast is set in an exciting alternative history; a time when refined men and women in top hats and bonnets commanded gigantic walking war machines, laying waste to the enemies of the British Empire! Take control of a 7 meter tall walking vehicle called an Ironcast and face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880's Victorian England.

Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast's various weapons and systems. You must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy your opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapons fire is due.

Features:

  • Turn based strategy combat set against a rich and interesting alternate 1880's history.
  • Roguelite campaign mode where death is permanent but with persistent rewards from one game session to the next. Drive back the invading forces and press forth for victory!
  • Hand painted art style.
  • Inspired by the steampunk genre and Victorian science fiction.
  • Loot new technology and upgrade abilities from the wrecks of fallen enemies.
  • Customise your Ironcast with a range of unique weapons and defensive systems. Over 50 different unlockable items will ensure an almost limitless number of combinations.
  • Passive Augmentations allow players to modify their Ironcast's weapons and abilities.
  • For PC, Mac and Linux.
