All Mutants Must Die
Ironward Launches Campaign on Fig for Solstice Chronicles: MIA
February 23, 2017 - The year is 2280 AE. As a lone marine stranded in an infected Martian colony, the Corporation has designated you MIA. Left for dead with an insurgent drone as your only ally, all that stands between you and freedom is a seemingly unstoppable army of mutants.
Debuting today on Fig, Ironward presents the crowdfunding campaign for Solstice Chronicles: MIA, the action-packed spinoff of the developer’s debut title; The Red Solstice. From February 23rd to March 23rd, Ironward is seeking $30,000 (USD) to cover the final stretch of development as Solstice Chronicles: MIA moves closer to release.

Coming to PC and PlayStation 4 later this year, Solstice Chronicles: MIA is a sci-fi, twin-stick shooter with a tactical edge. In addition to customizable skill-trees and upgradeable weaponry, players must use the drone's abilities wisely, making fight-or-flight decisions to manipulate threat levels and balance risk versus reward.
Using 'Scout', for example, will send the drone out for supplies, but make the fight more difficult, while 'Taunt' causes the drone to lure in larger waves of weaker enemies. 'Bomb' will decimate your enemies, but the next wave will push even harder. And, while 'Block' may give you some breathing room, it also has a nasty habit of attracting bosses to the fight.
Will your choices lead you to freedom... or your doom?
Solstice Chronicles: MIA features include:
- Tactical, twin-stick shooter including two-player couch co-op.
- Story-based, 18 mission campaign branching from the events of The Red Solstice.
- Survival mode in which you decide when to EVAC, and when to push for bigger rewards.
- Customize skill-trees of four classes - Assault, Demolition, Hellfire, and Terminator.
- Upgradeable weaponry including shotguns, rocket launchers, flamethrowers, and more.
- Use your drone's abilities to aid in combat, manage threat levels, and scavenge supplies.
Fig backers will have the opportunity to claim a variety of rewards including Alpha access, unique skins, digital artwork, free copies of The Red Solstice, and even the opportunity to design a boss for Survival mode.

@Sdarts: when they had more options (see lost oddysey and blue dragon) they didn't buy them in high enough numbers to warrant sequels, which says to me it's the former. (0 minute ago)
Games like Persona 5, Nier: Automata and Nioh should have been released on XB1. Nioh is a Dark Souls clone, the original Nier was on X360. And Persona 5 would sell well on XB1, since it's a great game (0 minute ago)
@KORNdog: Perhaps, but are JRPGs just not popular with XB1 owners or just because there's not many to choose from? I believe the latter is the most probable reason. (2 minutes ago)
it's one thing to have the install base. but it's another to have enough people within it willing to buy your game. these japanese devs clearly don't feel it's worth the effort of porting the game. (2 minutes ago)
Also, RPCS3 allows you to play games downloaded from PSN, so you can legally buy games from PSN - like PS+ free games - and transfer them to your PC's HDD and play using RPCS3. (4 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: it depends if they think the market is there for it. which xbox owners tend to send out the impression it isn't. it's why we're not seeing a lost oddysey 3 or a blue dragon 4 being announced. (4 minutes ago)
Btw, RPCS3 - PlayStation 3 emulator - has been making immense progress during the past months. I'm mentioning it because Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, the 1st game, is completely playable. (6 minutes ago)
