BIG UPDATE - New maps and huge optimization!

Hello everbody,
we've been silent for some time but we've been working constantly!

We are presenting 2 more environments for you to play in survival.

Map - Tharsis Street
Battle in one of the first singleplayers maps in survival mode, quite different map layout then on open desert.

Map - Hangar
Battle to gather supplies before evacuating with your dropship, with some twists.

Both maps share similar monster spawns, and some monsters will not appear like they do in desert maps.

We also provided you with extra ammunition, by adding a chance for a monster to drop a clip when killed, thus rewarding people who like to be... thorough :)

We've made a huge optimization over entire game, we are also working on optimizing the game even further within next update, when this is done we will update our MINIMAL system requirements.

Thank you for being with us! :)

Patch notes:

> New survival map - HANGAR!
> New survival map - STREET!

  • optimized pathfind (total monsters on screen increased by 50%)
  • opitimized skeletal mesh rendering (total monsters on screen increased by 50%)
  • optimized ingame UI by 80%
  • optimized skill tree selection UI by 70%
  • optimized ENTIRE game across everything!

About This Game


Solstice Chronicles: MIA is a tactical shooter in which players control the difficulty by managing their threat level through special skills.



In a dead colony, a corporate marine is left far behind enemy lines. With an unlikely help of an insurgent drone, he faces the battle for survival against an army of murderous, mindless mutants... and worse things.


  • Master fluid twin-stick combat to blast through waves of mutants on Mars.
  • Use your drone's abilities tactically, weighing the risk and reward of decisions that drastically change the threat you face.
  • Decide between scavenging for supplies and upgrades in the face of the oncoming menace, or pushing forward, potentially unprepared for the enemies still to come.
  • Decimate the mutant onslaught with upgradeable weaponry, including shotguns, rocket launchers, and more, as well as special Heavy weapons, like the autocannon and flamethrower, which will obliterate everything in their path.
  • Develop your own skill tree from across four classes--Assault, Demolition, Hellfire, and Terminator--to become the ultimate instrument of destruction.

Universe - The Red Solstice

The Earth was overrun by STROL virus. What little was left of man kind colonized Mars, and established a society ruled by powerful corporations. But Mars isn't welcoming, and a violent storm threatens to tear the colonies apart. In a race against time, both the corporation and insurgents will stop at nothing to find the cure and reclaim the Earth. As the virus inevitably spreads through Tharsis colony, the players must fight the mutants, the storm and the odds to find the cure before it's too late.

Developer Note

We from Ironward want to take a different approach to twin-stick shooters. We learned that tactics can be great in our first game The Red Solstice, and we're trying to add a bit of that tactic into Solstice Chronicles: MIA, we feel that if players prepare themselves, the reward will be much more satisfying.

Solstice Chronicles: MIA is the second Fig funded game to be released. Its crowd funding campaign succeeded with 103% of its goal and was supported by 512 backers. Supporters of the game could both pledge and invest during the Fig campaign.
