FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - April 18th 2014, Warsaw, Poland

The Croatian indie development studio Ironward is happy to announce that its first crowd-funding project named “The Red Solstice” - a science-fiction based cooperative multiplayer action/strategy game, inspired by such classics as StarCraft and Dawn of War - has just been funded on Kickstarter!


T he Red Solstice Kickstarter campaign is still ongoing for the next 46 hours but the game has already reached the 50,000 USD funding goal. This guarantees that the game will be finished, polished and a huge sandworm battle will be added.

The next stretch goal - 75,000 USD - adding new game modes is still possible to reach if gamers keep supporting the title before the campaign ends on April 20th 10:31 a.m. CET / 01:31 a.m. PST.

In The Red Solstice you control one of the eight space marines that are trying to find out what happened to human colonies on Mars during that storm. The mix of a dark and gritty Science Fiction setting and addictive adrenaline filled gameplay – based on advanced tactics and quick decisions – is what makes up a great atmosphere and gameplay experience.

Game main features:

  • 8 player co-op multiplayer
  • adrenaline filled and quick tactics focused gameplay
  • 8 different classes to chose from
  • experience based character development system
  • dark and gritty survival Sci-Fi story and setting
  • infinite waves of monsters during  ~1 hour sessions

The whole Ironward team would like to thank all Kickstarter backers for their support, comments, sharing the news about the game, posting on forums and social media channels.
