What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our Early Access release is a little bit different from other Early Access games.

For Ion Fury, we've developed a fully polished "Preview Campaign" which can be downloaded right now, ahead of the release of the full game. This short campaign is specially tailored to introduce players to the world of Ion Fury, and is a standalone episode which can be played completely from start to finish.

When the game leaves Early Access on August 15th, the full campaign will be released and all owners of the game will receive the new content as an update.

Thank you for checking out our game!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until August 15th, when the full game will be released.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Ion Fury will include a completely new, several hour long campaign. Get psyched! Here's some of what you can look forward to:

  • Experience the original BUILD engine on steroids, pumped up and ready to rock again after 20 years!
  • Duck, jump, climb, swim, and blast your way through 7 exciting zones packed with multiple levels of mayhem!
  • A beautiful game world assembled from thousands of hand-crafted textures and sprites
  • An awe-inspiring arsenal of devastating weapons, including multiple ammo types and alternate fire modes. Tri-barreled revolvers, grenade launchers, and heat-seeking smart bombs are your best friends!
  • The classic '90s FPS action you love, meshed with modern inventions like locational damage and seamless level transitions
  • ZERO PROCEDURAL GENERATION. All levels are hand made and full of multiple paths, cool effects, and complex set pieces!
  • Thumping soundtrack comprised of true tracked module music, in authentic FastTracker 2 format
  • Easy access to level editor and other development tools, plus Steam Workshop support
  • The true successor to classic shooters such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Blood

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version includes a short "Preview Campaign" which is a polished experience and can be fully played from beginning to end. When the full campaign is ready and the game leaves Early Access, all players will receive the campaign as an update.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“As the game has doubled in planned scope since its unveiling, the price will rise to $24.99 on July 18th. Now’s the perfect time to pick it up and start blasting.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Customer feedback will help us improve and perfect ION FURY.

All of our developers are long time veterans of a very active BUILD engine community, ready to eagerly listen to what our players have to say. Creating the best possible game has been our goal since day one.

Through Steam, Discord, and our forums, we'll listen to what the community has to say during every step of ION FURY development. So, make sure to tell us how you feel about our level design, gameplay elements, sound, and anything else you deem important. We'll take it into account for the full game.”

Reviews

“Ion Fury is the true inheritor of Duke Nukem 3D's crown”
-PC Gamer

“These little interactive details and the gorgeous hand-crafted pixel art are a fine example of how the Build Engine can still look so distinct and beautiful in its own right. It's special in an industry striving for photo-realism. Throw all of this in with an ass-kicking midi soundtrack and Ion Fury has the potential of becoming another instant classic and a fine addition to the Build Engine library of games”
-Destructoid

“I can't wait to play ION FURY - what a great idea. Make a Duke Nukem 3D-like 90's build-engine shooter that looks pixel-perfect.”
-John Romero

About This Game




While Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her codename defusing bombs for the Global Defense Force, when evil transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes the members of his cybernetic cult onto the streets of Neo DC, she knows it’s time to start causing explosions instead of preventing them.

Her quest to slay Heskel leaves a trail of carnage throughout huge, multi-path levels filled with gigantic explosions, more secret areas than we can count, and inhuman foes behind every corner. There’s no regenerating health here; stop taking cover and start running and gunning.



Shelly’s crusade to take down Heskel’s army will see her leave destruction in her wake with a wide arsenal of weapons, complete with alternate fire modes and different ammo types. Her signature revolver, the tri-barreled Loverboy, brings enemies pain and players pleasure with both single shots and Old West-style hammer fanning action. Who needs a regular shotgun when you can load buckshot into your grenade launcher? Violent, over-the-top Bowling Bombs rip enemies apart with ease.



Ion Fury laughs at the idea of mandatory checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But, just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn’t mean we've ignored all the good new stuff the last two decades have brought. Headshots? Hell yeah. More physics and interactivity? You betcha. Widescreen, controller support, and Auto Saves? 3D Realms and Voidpoint have taken the best of both worlds and cooked it all into a bloody stew.





What to expect from the full version of ION FURY upon release:

  • The true successor to classic shooters such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Blood.
  • Experience the original BUILD engine on steroids, pumped up and ready to rock again after 20 years!
  • Duck, jump, climb, swim, and blast your way through 7 exciting zones packed with multiple levels of mayhem!
  • A beautiful game world assembled from thousands of hand-crafted textures and sprites
  • An awe-inspiring arsenal of devastating weapons, including multiple ammo types and alternate fire modes. Tri-barreled revolvers, grenade launchers, and heat-seeking smart bombs are your best friends!
  • The classic '90s FPS action you love, meshed with modern inventions like locational damage and seamless level transitions
  • ZERO PROCEDURAL GENERATION. All levels are hand made and full of multiple paths, cool effects, and complex set pieces!
  • Thumping soundtrack comprised of true tracked module music, in authentic FastTracker 2 format
  • Easy access on to level editor and other development tools on day one, plus Steam Workshop support
