Tactical twin-stick shooter Solstice Chronicles: MIA incoming; last call to support it on Fig

The Red Solstice creators are gathering funds for their next project: Solstice Chronicles: MIA. You can still help them out by supporting the game financially on Fig.

It is now the last call to support Solstice Chronicles: MIA, an upcoming tactical twin-stick shooter from The Red Solstice creators, indie developer Ironward. There are only three days left until the end of the game’s Fig crowdfunding campaign, but it seems it’s going to be successful, as it has already reached 98% of its funding goal. The missing 2% amounts to a bit over $500, so you still can have a share in making this happen. The aforementioned Ironward’s previous game, The Red Solstice, has been getting very positive Steam users reviews, which bodes well for this next project.

What exactly is Solstice Chronicles: MIA? Set in a distant future in an infected Mars colony, the game has you play as a Marine trying to escape this deathtrap together with an AI dorne. Using the drone’s special abilities wisely is key to success, as each action not only can cause lots of damage to enemies, but at the same time also increase the threat level, causing the next wave to be even more dangeours. On the other hand, some abilities lower the threat level, giving you some time to catch a breath. Besides, you can personalize your play style by installing weapon modifications and developing your character’s skills toward one of four classes. Find out more details on this website.
