Iron Marines (coming soon...)

by The_TaTs » Tue Nov 24, 2015 8:39 pm

We are very excited to finally being able to share news on a project we’ve been working on for the past year. As we've promised, you guys will always be the first to know... so here it is:

In mid-2016 we will be releasing a brand new game called Iron Marines.


Image


What is it about?

Players will command several squads of units ranging from specialized soldiers, unstoppable mechas and of course, Hero units both human and extraterrestrial. The fight spans across exotic planets against fearsome alien creatures and factions

This game won’t be a part of the Kingdom Rush franchise. It is an entire new universe to explore. It is also a different genre since this game will be more of a casual RTS.



Here is a little sneak peek:

The game will be available for mobile platforms (iOS and Android) and for PC (Windows, Linux and Mac).

We will be posting more news about the game from these channels:

Iron Marines webpage:

Ironhide official Facebook and Twitter:

We will be sharing more information very soon.

So stay tuned and stay awesome! :hero:

I'm going to begin with the obvious questions: (Thank you in advance for any you are allowed to answer!)

Will the game span several campaigns or simply one? How many levels have been designed (or planned) as of yet?

What is the general plot of the game? What's the name of the main character?

On a scale of 1 to pizza, how would currently rate the game's development?

Also, what can't you tell us about the game?

As for now, we plan it to have a single campaign of around 15 levels, but if the game is well received we would definitely want to expand the games universe!

Plot's a bit too specific I think for now, but as a general guideline I could tell you that the story revolves around a mysterious substance called Etherium- an incredibly rare source of power.

I'd say the game's a pizza. We're very involved in the project and for a lot of us it feels like OUR thing, not something we've been hired to do.

And I can't tell you stuff that would ruin the hype, like saying that X betrays Y in the end (Oh right, we're trying to make something more story heavy for those who seek it out. Something like the audiologs in Bioshock mixed with interaction with certain NPC's)

CHUGGA CHUGGA CHOO CHOO

RTS games are cool. I've always meant to try them.

Also, why was there an Iron Marine (the one that links to the forums from the IH site) before the Iron Marines game?

Whooooooa.

So does that guy on twitter with that avatar know about this? Or is his avatar just used for the logo?

Aaaah! Hype!

The screenshot looks really, really cool and a new spin on a familiar art style. It looks so cute Ima explode.

Everything looks awesome! :yey: One thing worries me, though:

Etherium isn't much a specific thing as it is a resource. And it's rare in the Solar System. Which in turn makes the whole interstellar adventure possible. This, of course, is a totally overused trope in fiction, but it's only used as a sort of excuse for the story to develop- the true content lies within characters, their actions and their relationships.

Pretty much what Pencil just said.

Several of us have been working with the narrative aspects of the game and the "rare" space substance that justifies everything is just a trope that serves to push the story forward.
Still... I loved your story BBB. There's some cool stuff there.

Also... I've missed this question before:

I'm afraid not. Multiplayer games add a level of complexity to our games that we are still not ready to work with. We totally want to, but we need to pick our fights.

It's a game, not a story, but thanks anyways. ;)

How's the music in this game? Did you get another group to make the soundtracks?
