Daedalic Entertainment to publish Action Squad Studios’ time-bending new game, launching in early 2020
Publisher Daedalic Entertainment today announced it has partnered with independent developer Action Squad Studios to launch Iron Danger, a tactical combat RPG with simultaneous turns and time manipulation, in early 2020 for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. Iron Danger has already received accolades for its unique mechanics and atmosphere.
Iron Danger is set in a world of magic and machinery that draws from both the Nordic myths that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy and from modern steampunk and tech noir. Players take on the role of Kipuna, a sharp-minded village girl who becomes imbued with an ancient power that grants dominion over time and death. Drawn into war, players must master their powers in order to protect mankind against total destruction.
With Iron Danger’s engaging time-control mechanic, players can rewind time for up to five seconds at any point in order to try different strategies and move combinations to find the right one for the job. Time manipulation gives traditional tactical combat a puzzle-like element, as players can continuously test new approaches and synchronize character actions for the perfect outcome.
- Unique time-rewind mechanics combine the best aspects of real-time and turn-based combat.
- Highly interactive environments provide advantages to succeed against impossible odds.
- Adventure in a world of steampunk fantasy, meeting unique inhabitants inspired by Finnish folklore and fantasy.
- Fight epic boss monsters.
- No grinding! Character progression pace is controlled by the story, ensuring every fight matters.
