Iron Danger Announcement Trailer

Finnish developer Action Squad Studios announces their new game, Iron Danger, with release of the pre-alpha gameplay trailer. Iron Danger is a genre-blending tactical RPG with simultaneous turns and time rewinding mechanics, providing an uniquely experimental take on combat and puzzles. It is also a game that focuses heavily on story and aims to minimize grinding as a part of the character progress.

About Iron Danger

Iron Danger is a story driven tactical RPG with simultaneous turns. It is a streamlined, action-packed single-player game in which repetitive grinding is kept to a minimum and every moment advances the story. The player controls Kipuna and one of two individual companion characters in tactically challenging battles against a variety of different threats. At center stage in combat is the unique time shifting mechanic that represents Kipuna’s magical influence over the flow of time. It gives the player the ability to rewind at any point with fraction-of-a-second precision, pinpointing strikes to enemies’ unguarded moments, deflecting and dodging attacks exactly when they happen, synchronizing magical and physical attacks to overwhelm difficult enemies, and overcoming impossible odds through trial and error.

Iron Danger challenges you to think of combat and puzzles from a different perspective: you may be an experienced gamer, who knows all the tricks, but you’ve never played a game like this.

The Story

Kipuna, a frail village girl, is forced to escape from her home. She stumbles upon a mystical crystal shard, which impales her but also gives her the ability to control time itself.  In this trailblazing adventure packed with action, the player and the group of unsung heroes must use their wits as they’re drawn into the midst of a war between the city of Kalevala, ruled by an immortal, who has renounced the gods, and the armies of the Northlanders driven by their Witch Queen. When the enemies will seek to harness the power of the mystical element for the service of total destruction, the player’s task is to seek all the missing shards in order to use it for mankind’s protection.

Iron Danger is set in a world of lofty fells, primeval forest, and placid lakes… as well as living gods, monsters of steel and smoke, and supernatural doom dwelling beneath the ground. The magical city of Kalevala, shines in the middle of this world, surrounded by towns, rivers and and woodlands under its protection. But from the desolate North, a Witch Queen is leading her dark army on a quest for vengeance against the lords of Kalevala.
